NCAA Football Top 25 as October 16 2010

Based on an NCAA football production model that I have created, I calculate the overall productivity of each NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision school for this year, based only on this years football production data. Given that only half of the season is completed, the marginal impacts of the various independent variables are likely to change a great deal, and some variables that are now statistically insignificant will likely become significant and some that are statistically significant could become insignificant. This is the reality of statistically based sport team production functions. That said, here is the top 25 for the week ending October 16 based on my NCAA football production function.

I will fill in the details over the next few weeks (hopefully). Thanks to College Football Stats for posting the data on the internet.
