2014 NCAA FBS Competitive Balance
Now that the 2014 season is in the books, I want to take a short look at competitive balance in NCAA football. For more background read my previous analysis of competitive balance in NCAA football. What I want to do in this blog is simply update the data over the past two seasons in terms of competitive balance. Using the Noll-Scully measure of competitive balance, I find that NCAA football was 1.43 in 2014, which is more balanced than the 1.65 in 2013. Yet, overall, NCAA football does not seem to be much different in terms of competitive balance from year to year as you can see in the table that I give in the blog linked above.
