@andy75 You're getting too technical for John.

Who can argue with a ranking that gives "sunny days" the same weight as "all-time wins?" That's just math.

@John at MrSEC Wow, that got out of hand pretty quickly. Oh well. Water's wet, MSU football has no tradition and sports bloggers can be pricks.

@John at MrSEC "You're right.  We've put this whole thing together with one goal -- to stick it to Mississippi State.  Moo-wha-ha-ha!" 

Sticking it to MSU wasn't what I was getting at, just that you've got incomplete data in one category and you should throw it out when it comes to calculating MSU's ranking in relation to the rest of the league. We all know that MSU will fall in the the bottom 4th of the ranking and one inaccurate data set won't matter. 

However, it doesn't change the fact that if were Bama or LSU with incomplete data, you'd be going about things differently. But, hey I'm just a fan from a whiney fanbase...who cares what I think.

@John at MrSEC @DearOldState Since there is no way to accurately judge MSU's numbers in that category versus the rest of the league, throw out that particular number when calculating MSU's final ranking. Otherwise you're just willfully using bad data. If it were Bama, I doubt you'd give them a 76 and move on.

Mississippi State is not with Collegiate Licensing Co., and therefore wouldn't be included in that list. They're represented by Licensing Resource Group. (www.lrgusa.com). Giving them a 76 based on incomplete data, seems sloppy.
