Kentucky projected to win 4.2 games

Something called a Predictalator simulated the 2012 college football season 50,000 times to come up with projections for how each team will fare this year. How does it work, you ask? I don’t know. I’ll let the people behind the Predictalator tell you:

The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today. The technology has the ability to account for all of the statistical interactions of the players (playing or not playing/injured), coaches, officials, fans (homefield advantage) and weather in each game. The Predictalator plays every game 50,000 times before it’s actually played. This provides the ability to assign probabilities to the likelihood of just about any outcome occurring in any event as well as to project individual statistics and more including straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under pick percentages for each game.

This magical machine of seeing into the future predicts Kentucky will go 4.2-7.8 this season.*

That’s a little shy of bowl eligibility.


*That’s an average of the 50,000 simulations, not what projects Kentucky’s actual record to be.

    How many of those have us ending the UF streak? What about extending the UT streak (sounds good to finally be able to say that)?

    Thiat prediction will look pretty stupid at the end of this season. No way we win less than 4.3 games.

    I think we will be 5-7 or better. I have a lot of faith in this young talent.
    Redshirting Towles is the best thing to do………

    50,000 sims – surely one has us going to the SEC championship, right? Forget my previous questions; I want to analyze that particular simulation. #optimism
