Post ESPN's FPI is ridiculous

So I'm watching the UVA versus UNC game and see the ESPN FPI scrolling on the bottom of the screen.

The methodology of this rating is clearly screwed up. How is Alabama above LSU? They have not played a ranked team.

Because their methodology actually takes “future” wins into account.

As seen by the win out %, their algorithm thinks Bama will beat LSU.
