  1. Scuzz:
    Your model: I’m curious as to what your model would have predicted for the 2010 season at this point last year. Do you have those numbers?

    Interesting read, I look forward to more. Go Cats.

    • Hi Marc –

      Yes, I do have some of those numbers, and will probably discuss them in more detail next week. But, given the turnover on NU’s offense going into 2010, the model was not bullish on the cats — most likely record was 5-7, and only 44% of scenarios resulted in bowl eligibility. Thankfully for NU that’s not how it worked out! Thanks for your comment!
