People familiar with the Orange Bowl Boys podcast are definitely aware of the Blue-Chip ratio. It is a stat unearthed by Bud Elliott and trumpeted by our own Roman that shows the ratio each team has of 4 & 5 star guys compared to 2 & 3 star guys. There has never been a team who has won a national title in the modern era without a blue-chip ratio greater than 50%.
With all that said, here are the only teams with a 50% or greater BCR for the 2022 season:
Ohio State 80%
Texas A&M 70%
Notre Dame 62%
Penn State 55%
These are the only teams that can win the natty this year…according to history. Miami has seen their percentage increase as they were at 51% in 2019. What are your thoughts on the BCR, are you a believer?
