Also, I will try and post the NFL version later in the week. Until then, hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Enter the Bulldogs

Week 11 of the M Scale sees Georgia in one of the coveted Top 4 spots for the first time since Week 6. And on the NFL side, the Steelers showed out on Thursday Night Football to claim the fourth spot followed by the LA Chargers at 5, while the Patriots and Panthers fell.

Without further ado…

Saints and Irish Climb in Pro and College M Scales

Trying to get both Scales on one post has proven to be tricky, but here is the latest attempt. First the NFL since there is a change at the top:

Week 9 w l t pct
1 New Orleans Saints 7 1 0 .875
2 Kansas City Chiefs 8 1 0 .889
3 Los Angeles Rams 8 1 0 .889
4 New England Patriots 7 2 0 .778
5 Carolina Panthers 6 2 0 .750
6 Los Angeles Chargers 6 2 0 .750
7 Pittsburgh Steelers 5 2 1 .667
8 Houston Texans 6 3 0 .667
9 Cincinnati Bengals 5 3 0 .625
10 Washington Redskins 5 3 0 .625
11 Chicago Bears 5 3 0 .625
12 Minnesota Vikings 4 3 1 .533
13 Atlanta Falcons 4 4 0 .500
14 Miami Dolphins 5 4 0 .556
15 Tennessee Titans 4 4 0 .500
16 Seattle Seahawks 4 4 0 .500
17 Philadelphia Eagles 4 4 0 .500
18 Detroit Lions 3 4 0 .429
19 Baltimore Ravens 4 5 0 .444
20 Green Bay Packers 3 4 1 .400
21 Indianapolis Colts 3 5 0 .375
22 Dallas Cowboys 3 5 0 .375
23 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3 5 0 .375
24 Jacksonville Jaguars 3 5 0 .375
25 New York Jets 3 6 0 .333
26 Denver Broncos 3 6 0 .333
27 Cleveland Browns 2 6 1 .235
28 Arizona Cardinals 2 6 0 .250
29 Buffalo Bills 2 7 0 .222
30 San Francisco 49ers 2 7 0 .222
31 Oakland Raiders 1 7 0 .125
32 New York Giants 1 7 0 .125

And now the NCAA, where Notre Dame has risen one notch to #3:

Wk 10 Teams Conference w l pct
1 Alabama SEC 9 0 1.000
2 Clemson ACC 9 0 1.000
3 Notre Dame Independent-ACC 9 0 1.000
4 Central Florida American Athletic 8 0 1.000
5 Georgia SEC 8 1 0.889
6 Oklahoma Big 12 8 1 0.889
7 Ohio St Big 10 8 1 0.889
8 Michigan Big 10 8 1 0.889
9 Fresno State Mountain West 8 1 0.889
10 Washington State Pac 12 8 1 0.889
11 Boise State Mountain West 7 2 0.778
12 LSU SEC 7 2 0.778
13 Michigan St Big 10 6 3 0.667
14 Wisconsin Big 10 6 3 0.667
15 Troy Sunbelt 7 2 0.778
16 San Diego St Mountain West 7 2 0.778
17 Washington Pac 12 7 3 0.700
18 UAB Conference USA 8 1 0.889
19 Army West Point Independent 7 2 0.778
20 Penn State Big 10 6 3 0.667
21 Mississippi State SEC 6 3 0.667
22 NC State ACC 6 2 0.750
23 Auburn SEC 6 3 0.667
24 Boston College ACC 7 2 0.778
25 Kentucky SEC 7 2 0.778

So there it is. I hope it works because I don’t want to start over to split the posts. Much of this season has been a final trial run before I try to take the Scale (or a variant) to a larger audience, so just trying to work out the kinks here.

Panthers blast Ravens, slide into Top 5 while Rams remain unstoppable

Just as in the college version, keep in mind that Thursday night’s San Francisco win over Oakland is not included but will be reflected in next week’s Scale.

1 Los Angeles Rams 8 0 0 1.000
2 Kansas City Chiefs 7 1 0 .875
3 New Orleans Saints 6 1 0 .857
4 New England Patriots 6 2 0 .750

6 Los Angeles Chargers 5 2 0 .714
7 Washington Redskins 5 2 0 .714
8 Houston Texans 5 3 0 .625
9 Pittsburgh Steelers 4 2 1 .615
10 Cincinnati Bengals 5 3 0 .625
11 Seattle Seahawks 4 3 0 .571
12 Minnesota Vikings 4 3 1 .533
13 Chicago Bears 4 3 0 .571

25 Jacksonville Jaguars 3 5 0 .375
26 Denver Broncos 3 5 0 .375
27 Cleveland Browns 2 5 1 .267
28 Buffalo Bills 2 6 0 .250
29 Arizona Cardinals 2 6 0 .250
30 Oakland Raiders 1 6 0 .143
31 San Francisco 49ers 1 7 0 .125
32 New York Giants 1 7 0 .125

Clemson Climbs to #2

This week’s Scale is regrettably late. Please keep in mind that games of this past Tuesday and Thursday are not included in this M Scale as they are considered part of next week’s schedule.

Anyway, as the title suggests, Clemson climbed one notch to the second spot behind only Alabama, mostly because UCF didn’t play while the Tigers notched another win. The bottom of the list as usual contains a lot of churn, which you can explore and form your own opinions.

1 Alabama SEC 8 0 1.000
2 Clemson ACC 8 0 1.000
3 Central Florida American Athletic 7 0 1.000
4 Notre Dame Independent-ACC 8 0 1.000

10 Fresno State Mountain West 7 1 0.875
11 Washington State Pac 12 7 1 0.875
12 Boise State Mountain West 6 2 0.750

22 Texas Big 12 6 2 0.750
23 Army West Point Independent 6 2 0.750
24 Washington Pac 12 6 3 0.667
25 Utah Pac 12 6 2 0.750

Chargers Crack Top 5

Not much movement in the NFL Scale at the top, but the LA Chargers (still not used to that name) moved into #5 at the expense of the Baltimore Ravens, who fell to #11. Looks like a good year to be a Los Angeles football fan, what with the Rams undefeated and the Chargers nearing the top of the Scale.

1 Los Angeles Rams 7 0 0 1.000
2 Kansas City Chiefs 6 1 0 .857
3 New Orleans Saints 5 1 0 .833
