I love your work and generally agree with your positions. However, I don't think Vandy fans want our ex-coaches to have been involved in this.  We are angry (some livid), at Franklin for the way he left.  But that pales in comparison to the thought that anyone employed by the University could have been involved in the coverup of such a heinous act.  Besides, the DA has all the emails and texts and chose not to prosecute. That is the best indication that there was no actionable case. That was true then and is true now.

Mr. Pennington,

Love your work, and this is interesting in comparing home field advantage.  There is no question that that is an interesting metric.  I also think it proves your point that there is not a significant difference in officiating between home and away.

However, I am more interested in seeing how many objectively bad calls each team has had go against them each year.  I would like to see how many referee apology letters each school has received for bad calls after the game over the last 10 years.  I would also see how many calls that created apology letters were in favor of each team.  I think the is a much more targeted metric that goes to bad calls, not total calls.  

P.S.  I am not denying my bias or that these calls go in my school's favor (i.e. Vandy-Ole Miss game last year)

Personally, I think each SEC team should be required to have 1 BCS out of conference permanent opponent, but they should be free to chose them.  The Western Division teams have no connection with the ACC, so Big XII teams would be much more appropriate.  Why can't there be an agreement where each team plays against the ACC or Big XII.  It might even force Texas and Kansas to do what is right against their natural rivals.   Think KU-Mizzou, Texas-Ark (or ATM if Texas quits throwing a fit) OU-LSU, MSU-Tex. Tech, Ole Miss-OK State.  These would be more interesting than an Ole Miss-NC State or UK -Duke match up.
