Pat Forde's over and underachiever index

His formula essentially ranks a team's based on the number of NFL combine participants from that school. He then subtracts the team's final Sagarin rating from the combine number. Some teams were obvious overachievers in 2012... Stanford ranked 22nd in talent and 9th in Sagarin for a rating of +13. The biggest overachiever was Northwestern at +69 due to a talent rating of 90 vs. a Sagarin rating of 21. Other prominent overachievers include Ole Miss(+66), Texas Tech(+53), Louisville(+47), Michigan(+44) and Vanderbilt(+39). Care to guess who the biggest underachievers were? The worst was Hawaii at -86 with a talent ranking of 33 and a Sagarin rating of 118. Other notable underachievers are Illinois(-83), Boston College(-65), Southern Mississippi(-77), UConn(-63), Cal(-60) and Arkansas(-55). As for Tennessee, and Mister Orange Dockers, we came in at a score that looks better by comparison to the above but is still in fact horrendous at -40.
