Week 5 2016 FBS College Football Game Predictions by SportPundit

Week 5 2016 FBS College Football Game Predictions by SportPundit

Some great matchups coming this 5th week, e.g. Louisville at Clemson.

We go into Week 5 with the following cumulative season results thus far:
223-62 in picking the winner
132-133-14 against the spread
88-101 against the CFPT average, and
139-129-9 against the over/under.
We hope to get better as the yards-per-play stats get more consistent due to teams playing conference games, rather then e.g. FCS foes. 
__________

Below are our -- SportPundit -- prediction results for NCAA Division I FBS College Football in ESPN Week 5, based primarily on our Week 4 College Football Rankings and Ratings for FBS 2016-2017 by SportPundit. We also look at the USA Today Sagarin College Football 2016 Ratings, the Massey Ratings for 2016 NCAA I Football and the Dr. Kambour home field advantage calculations.

Our system is based on net average yards per play stats, calibrated primarily by adjusting for schedule difficulty, i.e. the teams thus far played. Other adjustments are also made (*=adjustment). We take the cumulative yards per play stat data from cfbstats.com and from the college and university football athletic pages online.

Caveat emptor (Buyer beware): We make this material available in good fun out of interest for the sport of college football. Please do not rely on our material to place bets or wagers of any kind. No one knows the exact outcome of a game or a season before it is played and that is what makes it so interesting. We disclaim any and all liability for the consequences of anyone relying in any way upon our postings, analysis, links or reasoning - for which we make no warranty of accuracy. May the best team win.

This week we used primarily the odds posted at Oddsshark viz. VegasInsider.com. We compete against the opening odds and the oft later-posted over/under ("O/U") at those online betting sites. We also compete against the prediction average at the CFPT (College Football Prediction Tracker), this week as posted on Monday, September 26, 2016, 10:10 AM. CFPT can differ on the opening odds. All of our odds and stats are posted without ANY guarantee of accuracy, and without any liability for our posted materials. We do this for fun. If it is important, the reader must consult the original sites. We use the opening line ("OL") if available, not the updated line ("UL), as we compete against opening odds, if possible. We call the score and not the spread as such because our stats permit that calculation.

We write "was favored" because we use the odds of the opening line, whereas these are usually changed by the time we make our predictions, but we do not compete against those changed odds. We use the CFPT as of the above date.

FBS Week 4 College Football Ratings & Rankings 2016-2017 by SportPundit

Week 4 College Football Ratings & Rankings FBS 2016-2017 - SportPundit

These are our college football rankings after Week 4 of the 2016 season, constituting "Week 4" according to the ESPN and NCAA.com numbering, whereas some other sources use "Week 5" due to the game in Australia of the "one-game week" that preceded normal matches in the actual "Week 1".

Our system is based on net average yards per play stats, which we calibrate primarily by adjusting for schedule difficulty, which we take as the average rank of the opponents played (we multiply the calculated, adjusted rank by 3, divide by 100, and subtract that from the NAYPPA). Note that our calculation is not the same as the Sagarin or Massey "RANK" of schedule difficulty, which is a different calculation. Other adjustments can also made (*=adjustment). We take the cumulative yards per play stat data from cfbstats.com or college and university football athletic pages online, as linked below for each team.

Caveat emptor (Buyer beware): We make this material available in good fun out of interest for the sport of college football. Please do not rely on our material to place bets or wagers of any kind.  No one knows the exact outcome of a game or a season before it is played and that is what makes it so interesting. We disclaim any and all liability for the consequences of anyone relying in any way upon our postings, analysis, links or reasoning - for which we make no warranty of accuracy. May the best team win.

  • Sky Earth Native America 2 :
    American Indian Rock Art Petroglyphs Pictographs
    Cave Paintings Earthworks & Mounds as Land Survey & Astronomy
    ,
    Volume 2, Edition 2, 262 pages, by Andis Kaulins.

  • Both volumes have the same cover except for the labels "Volume 1" viz. "Volume 2".
    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
