Pre-season rankings...

Recommended Posts

Pre-season rankings are no worse than MLB prospect rankings.  Neither means much, but they are both fun.

to be fair, rankings can actually affect real outcomes. 

Yep.  And that's my problem with them.  Your margin for error increases if you're ranked higher to start the year.

And those small biases are still going to be there if you start in week 3.  If Enormous State University is ranked too high in pre-season and they start the season with three unimpressive wins versus East Central University, Tiny Tech and division 2 power Gritty State, they are still going to be ranked too high.

The extent to which pre-seasons rankings affect the end of season rankings is minimal at most.
