CHingon's Adjusted Metrics, Omitting YardageA ranking system that is 100% objective. It combines the opponent adjusted efficiency stats for each team with an "accomplishment" factor that reflects the wins of said team. It disregards any numbers based on yards as essentially meaningless.

**The quick and dirty rundown for efficiency**Compute a teams offensive efficiency by computing the number of points scored by the offense minus the number of points GIVEN UP by the offense (such as INT returns for TD) divided by the number of opportunities for the offense (drives). The offense does NOT get credit for points from kickoff returns, punt returns, blocked punt returns, blocked FG returns, or any points scored by the defense. It does however give the offense partial credit for a made FG.

Similarly the team's defensive efficiency is computed by the number of points allowed by the defense minus the number of points SCORED by the defense divided by the number of drives. The defense is not held accountable for kickoff returns, etc or points given up by the offense. If is partially responsible for made FGs.

Special teams are given credit for (and held accountable for) any scores resulting from kickoffs, punts, blocked fgs. They also get partial credit for made FGs. The number of points from special teams is divided by the number of opportunities they had.

In effect the efficiency numbers are the NET points scored by each group divided by the number of opportunities they had to score. It's says how many points per opportunity this unit provides (or costs) the team. These numbers are computed for each game.

For example, here are KSU's raw efficiency numbers for the first three games:

The efficiency numbers for each game are adjusted by taking into the account the opponent's average efficiency numbers (calculated from all games except the one being played) as compared to the FBS average. In a sense it portrays how the units would have performed against an average counter-unit.

Here are KSU's adjusted efficiencies:

So looking at the Vanderbilt game, KSU's offense played in a manner that would have resulted in 2.15 ppo if the game was against an avg defense. It kinda lets you compare across games and takes into account the opponent.

**The quick and dirty rundown for accomplishment**A team can only gain accomplishment points for wins (losses are irrelevant). The better the team the more points. The accomplishment points are re-scaled to run from 0 to 1.

ChAMOY ranking is determined by combining total adjusted efficiency (offense - defense + st/4) and acc.

Here is the Top 25 (its a bit crazy because some teams have still only played one game -- this is hurting Alabama because FSU is a no win team right now)
