The problem with Strength of Schedule arguments are that they are extremely subjective. 2012 Florida Gators are a perfect example. A string of narrow wins versus teams like Louisiana-LaFayette leads to an 11-1 regular season and a #2 ranking. Then they get boat raced by Louisville. They ended up ranked 9th/10th (AP, Coaches), but they were a step away from being the dumpster fire that was 2013 Florida Gators Football. Overall, I think SoS can be a useful tool, but we should use it AFTER the season so we can look objectively at the final product of a season. For instance, our win versus Duke this year looks much better now than it did in September.
