Macro View of College Football

It’s been about three weeks since we last reported on college football as a whole and while some things have changed slightly, others have been reinforced.

  • 2012 can be described as the year of the turnover.  They have become much more important to winning this year than last and winners average 1 turnover less per game than losers.
