The CFN Season Formula is based on straight numbers, wins, losses, and strengths of schedules to measure just how good a season really was, and NOT how good we thought all of the teams were.

That’s what the CFN Opinion Rankings are for.

This is all about evaluating every team’s season from start to finish with an emphasis on the big wins, the painful losses, and who had the toughest and easiest roads.

This formula – used to compare seasons on a historical basis, as well as year-by-year – only cares about victories and the raw numbers, completely taking out the eye test.

It’s simple … was your schedule good, and did you win with it? Then your ranking is high. Was your schedule mediocre? This exposes that. Here’s the breakdown of how the CFN Season Formula is calculated.

One more note before getting started. The idea of the “best” and “worst” wins are based on how important the wins are according to the formula. The win over the key rival is obviously the biggest moment, but it might not have been the win over the best team on the slate.

Basically, which teams had the most fun, and which teams didn’t?
