SportPundit College Football Prediction Results Week 2 2016

This 2nd Week at SportPundit we were
63-12 in picking the winner
33-35-1 against the spread
19-24 against the CFPT prediction average, and
37-31 against the over/under.

For the season our cumulative stats after Week 2 are:

132-29 in picking the winner
75-70-10 against the spread
39-45 against the CFPT average, and
79-71-4 against the over/under.
__________
Below are our -- SportPundit -- prediction results for WEEK 2 of NCAA Division I FBS College Football based primarily on our College Football Rankings Week 1 FBS 2016-2017 by SportPundit. We also looked at the USA Today Sagarin College Football Ratings for 2016, the Massey Ratings for 2016 NCAA I Football and the Dr. Kambour home field advantage calculations. The second week had a lot of matchups of FBS and FCS teams and top games are few.

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. For the first weeks, we use last season's stats, unless a team has already shown a perceptible change in play this season.

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. 

We used opening odds as far as possible and as posted at CFPT (The College Football Prediction Tracker) as of Thursday, September 8, 2016, 1:02:25 PM, viz. VegasInsider.com viz. Oddsshark. We compete against the prediction average at CFPT and the over/under ("O/U") of the online betting sites, as available, 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, as we compete against opening odds, if possible.

    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."
