That was interesting, but those score predictions are really all over the place when you run the simulations. I didn't bother posting the play-by-play, but I may do that later just to see how a game would play out to end up with the predicted score.
Scroll down and it'll show the results from running it over 1000x

Looking at the numbers made me realize that since 2008 Alabama only out of conference loss in the regular season is this year to Texas. I think my memory backs that up.

CNS has also produced 74 All-Americans from 2007-2022

19 Were Consensus All-Americans
26 Were Unanimous All-Americans

He's had 122 NFL Draft Picks

44 Were 1st Round Picks

19 Top 10 Overall Picks

7 Top 5 Overall Picks

1 Number 1 Overall Pick

21 of those players were NFL 1st team All-Pros

11 Players are Super Bowl Champions

All of that is INSANE.
On top of that, consider all the drafted players and those that signed as free agents who made the NFL. I’ve got a paid account with spotrac and started adding up the value of contracts Bama players have signed since Saban arrived. I only got through a partial sample and it was over 1 BILLION DOLLARS! It’s crazy how much money Coach Saban and Alabama has made for players.

Yeah they don’t remember Mike. Or Mike. Or the other Mike.
But I am old enough to remember Coach Bryant and God I do miss those Sunday afternoons when he did the Paul Bear Bryant show a replay of the Saturday game. Back then you were only on tv 2 times per year so it was great to get a overview with the video of the game. But gone are those days and now we have another dynasty.. RTR

I’m not sure how seriously we should take this. It predicted LSU to beat us over 70% of the time. Ole Miss and UGA were predicted to beat us as well. The real capper is Bama only beat Chattanooga 68% of the time…
I would trust the results of a game of NCAA Football 14 between two 12yr olds with fan created updated rosters before I would trust this sim, lol.

And don't forget all the rehabilitated coaches.

It clearly is designed to weigh offense more than defense
