They’re the season-cripplers. The bad losses can ruin a season, crush momentum, and kill a team hoping to come up with a win against someone it’s probably supposed to beat.

So what’s a Bad Loss?

In the CFN Five-Year Program Analysis, an Bad Loss is counted as a loss to an FCS team or to a team that finishes with three wins or fewer. An extra 0.5 penalty is added on to a Bad Loss at home – those really hurt.
