Default Blue Chip Ratio...

The DawgNation message board has a great thread about talent levels on the elite teams rosters. Since you have to have an account to view, I’m going to post the info but wanted to clarify this is not my original information. I’ll post the link for anyone who may have an account:

I subscribe to The Read Option and Bud Elliot sent out the updated Blue Chip Ratio this morning.

Entering 2019, 16 teams meet the Blue-Chip Ratio mark.

Ohio State 81%
Alabama 80%
Georgia 79%
LSU 64%
Florida State 61%
Clemson 60%
USC 60%
Penn State 60%
Michigan 60%
Texas 60%
Oklahoma 60%
Auburn 58%
Washington 54%
Notre Dame 54%
Florida 53%
Miami 51%

The National Champion is listed somewhere on that list.

Edit: There are 16 teams this year, the average is usually about 12. In 2014, no team was above 75% and now there are 3 teams above that threshold. Ohio St at 81% is a new record previously held by Bama in 2017 that was 80%

Teams that were in the 38-48% range (one good class away from making the list) was down compared to other years, only 4 teams were in that margin: Texas A&M, Tennessee, Oregon and Stanford.



Here are the biggest risers and fallers in the Ratio since 2018:

Up: Washington (14%), Florida (11%), Georgia (10%), Oklahoma (7%), Penn State (7%)

Down: UCLA (-13%), USC (-11%), Florida State (-6%)



Washington has surged under Peterson: Chris Petersen has slowly built Washington from a 22% BCR in 2014 to 23, 26, 30, 40, and finally 54 this year.

Since '14 Penn St is a HUGE riser along with Washington, UGA and OU. But Penn St was also coming off some scholarship limitations so naturally we would see their numbers go up but Franklin has recruited his tail off up there. Crazy to think he led Vandy to back to back 9 win seasons..

What makes up the blue chip rating? Interesting. Who does more with less.

The number of 4 and 5-stars on the roster. I think they use the 247 composite for the purposes of that article too.

USC and FSU....whoof. Someone in those administrations need to hire a competent staff.

I also wish they could somehow dive into the numbers a bit and a see who is evaluating talent the best.

I’d also love to see a breakdown of the ratios of upper and underclassmen. Obviously, those teams making huge jumps this year are full of Freshmen that may not impact the team this year. Not everyone is a Lawrence/Ross. That output by true frosh is a rarity.

The talent is one thing, but how they developed should be considered, too. And that tells me no one develops players better than Clemson.

I could be wrong but I think our ratio may go up next year.

This is very true and itís the secret in our secret sauce. But you canít make a gourmet meal without good ingredients. This ratio, so far at least, is the best indicator for who can win the national championship.
