They’re the empty calorie wins.

They’re the ones that don’t really do much for college football as a whole, but they’re also the ones you have to use as the tune-ups and help the overall record. They’re on the schedule, you might as well win them.

What does this generally mean? The more Bad Wins means easier schedules and easier paths.

They’re the bad wins. They’re the ones over the FCS teams, along with the teams that finished with three wins or fewer.
