    Default Massey Computer prediction GSU vs App.

    *The Massey head to head prediction gives App an 83% chance of winning with the score being App 31 - GSU 17

    I just place the Massey prediction here to add to the discussion. You know that Massey uses a computer calculated prediction.

    What Massey doesn't account for is how fears this rivalry is & on any given day.

    GSU fans have seen our Offense score big points and the D hold against other offenses.

    "If" the best of GSUs offense and Defense shows up App and Massey will be in for a surprise.

    So what the Eagles are going to win no matter what there numbers show. Massey can kiss a jackass as far as I am concerned.

    Ken Massey has been doing this for several decades and is well respected in the sports statistics field. He's actually a professor and his work has been used in the BCS calculations for many years. I've traded emails with him before and really enjoy his work.

    All that being said, his system or anyone else's, isn't built for guaranteeing a winner or even a point spread. Anything can happen and normally does during a football game. All he does is work to project based on historical data which is surprisingly accurate if you look at what he has done.

    Massey is states driven and doesn't count the intangables for a rivalry like GSU vs App.

    Actually, his formulas do take into account previously played games against an opponent but it has very little bearing as any previously played game against App State has very little bearing on Thursday's game- although it could pattern that many games we play against App are close in score.

    Again, he's just projecting 'most likely' outcomes but that doesn't mean it's what will actually happen.

    Didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up!
