Our strength-of-record ratings attempt to provide an apples to apples comparison for the relative “impressiveness” of a team’s record. 7-1 vs an easy slate may not be more impressive than 4-4 against a top-tier schedule. SOR provides an easy numeric comparison to compare records. The core concept can best be described as “how many wins would a generic top-10 team have against the same schedule?”
