If Notre Dame loses , next week Coach Muschamp is going to llok like a genius in ducking Alabama in the SECCG to instead play them in the BCSNCG.  I had always assumed he was the Sonny of the Saban coaching tree (Dooley obviously is Fredo) but maybe he is Michael.

Georgia is going to flirt with fifty points against Tech.

Probably.  The formula decides a % of the total points in the game each team will score.  Then it determines the average amount of total points scored in both team's games and takes the average.  Then applies the % to the average total.

So GT games have average a total of about 45 and UGA around 39.  Which averages to 41.5 points.  The formula predicts that UGA should score 74% of those points and I have been awarding 2.5 points for home field so UGA gets 41.5*.74+2.5 = 33.6.

Thats all there really is to the projection system.  I'm not a 100% pleased with it.  My NFL one does better but the teams are more even so the total points assumptions works better I think.
