Week 7 Update

Week 7 was a dud, outside the near improbable Michigan State win. Only 3 teams favored to start the week lost in week 7 and only 5 guys picked up +1 coach effect metrics.  The leader for the Power 5 teams is Kyle Whittingham at +2 games.  He will have the opportunity for at least two more +1s, with a -1 game hitting them VERY unlikely.  He is a clear leader to finish no.1 in 2015.

For those new to my CFBMatrix, this is simply coaches doing more with less.  Great recruiters do not get much for positive coach effect.  They make a living landing the talent, more so that coaching it up.
