Examining Colorado, Pac-12, and Big XII Football over the last 10 years using the Hist-O-Graph...and then
saying stuff. eating pecan pie.
Don't know what the Hist-o-Graph project is? Lemme e'splain. No, there is too much. Lemme sum up:
Pictures may be worth a thousand words, but they apparently don't satisfy the word-count requirement, so make the jump so I can stop eating pecan pie long enough to say some stuff...
You'll notice that everyone's record has been updated to reflect the 2011 regular season (blech) and also tweaked to only show the regular season from years past.
My rationale is that bowl games were essentially being counted twice. In some ways it's a philosophical question; do people (and recruits) remember that you won the Sun bowl, or merely that you went? Well, it only counts once now.
But now you can see the final Hist-O-Graph and see in a scroll where we've come from and where we've gone to...
The Old Big 12 North: (We win this, by the way, I don't care what anyone else says.)
The Old Big 12 South:
The Pac-12 North:
The Pac-12 South: Call me Whack-tastic, but winning a real conference outright beats anything Utah or ASU did this whole past decade.)
State Mandated In-State Rivalry: At least we'll always have CSU to kick around.
Happy Holidays, Everyone. Thanks for reading the Hist-O-Graphs, and Go Buffs!
