Florida States Scare And The Worst Opening Weeks For Preseason No 1s

Florida State was the nation’s preseason No. 1 college football team, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI), a computer-generated power rating designed to measure the relative strength of each team in the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision. But the Seminoles faced an early test Saturday in 25th-ranked Oklahoma State. It was an exam FSU would barely pass; while the FPI would have predicted an 18-point victory, the Seminoles squeaked out a mere six-point win that caused their FPI to drop by two points.ESPN’s Stats & Info Group has computed FPI back to the 2005 season, and Florida State’s was the fourth-worst Week 1 performance by a preseason No. 1 in terms of FPI points lost in the subsequent set of rankings:The three games resulting in bigger FPI losses for preseason No. 1s were all wins against extremely weak competition, by margins deemed unacceptably low according to the pre-game power ratings. By contrast, the best performance — Alabama’s 41-14 dismantling of Michigan in 2012 — was a rout against an opponent considered to be strong by the FPI.FSU’s win Saturday belongs to yet a different category. Oklahoma State is in a rebuilding phase, returning just eight starters from last season’s 10-3 squad, but it also carried an FPI rating implying it’d be roughly a two-touchdown favorite against an average FBS school. Among opening opponents for preseason No. 1s, only the Michigan team Alabama crushed in 2012 came into the game with a stronger FPI rating.There are worse ways to begin a season than beating an opponent of that relative quality. FPI is geared for maximal predictive accuracy, so a six-point win against a team with a rating of 14.1 points per game above average is still considered more indicative of success than scheduling a cream puff for the opener and only beating them by 40. read more

Subaru teases its new Genevabound concept the Viziv Adrenaline

first_imgEnlarge ImageThe Viziv Adrenaline concept from Subaru is giving us strong crossover vibes. Subaru Subaru announced on Tuesday its plan to release the next in its Viziv line of concept vehicles at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March.This latest Viziv is called the Adrenaline, and while Subaru isn’t giving us much to go on with this dark little teaser image, it does look like it might be sportier than previous Viziv concepts.Last year’s Viziv Tourer concept was teased in much the same way and ended up being a handsome and aggressive wagon that made everyone here at Roadshow pine for the days of the WRX STi wagon.The Viziv Adrenaline teaser smacks of crossover, but if it’s half as aggressive a crossover as the Tourer was a wagon, then maybe it’s a peek at the faster Forester of our dreams (and dreams only, until they stop selling so well, according to Subaru).In any case, Subaru says that we can expect to see the Viziv Adrenaline concept in all of its glory on March 5 at 10:45 a.m. Central European Time, or 4:45 a.m. ET. Until then, you Subaru fans will have to satiate yourselves by feverishly commenting on speculative NASIOC threads.

Hyundais cockpit of the future involves massive steering wheel screens

first_img Hyundai More From Roadshow Preview • 2020 Hyundai Sonata first drive: An attractive and compelling midsize sedan Post a comment Hyundai More about 2020 Hyundai Sonata Tags Hyundai’s jumbo compact sedan communes with Google Share your voice 2020 Hyundai Sonata first drive: An attractive and compelling midsize sedan News • 2020 Hyundai Sonata reveals striking new design ahead of New York Auto Show 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line review: A legit compact performer 0 If you’ve been in any number of new cars in the past year or so, you might marvel at how many screens automakers have been able to jam into ’em. Now, Hyundai’s looking at a place for additional screens that, until now, has been relegated to the realm of concept cars.Hyundai on Tuesday unveiled its latest study on the future of the cockpit. In addition to more clever layouts for screens in traditional locations, like the gauge cluster and dashboard center stack, the automaker has also added two large touchscreens to either side of a steering wheel. It’s presenting the concept in a Euro-spec Hyundai i30 hatchback.Most steering wheels have buttons that let you control features such as the radio volume or which screen is displayed on the gauge cluster. But Hyundai’s steering wheel screens remove those static buttons in favor of something more dynamic, allowing the owner to select what functions will appear on the steering wheel. The screens are loaded with haptic feedback to ensure button presses are accurate without too much distraction.Enlarge ImageIf this did make it to production, Hyundai would have to sandwich an airbag in there, too. Hyundai That’s not the only clever bit of tech Hyundai has in its study. It also has what it calls a Multi-Layer Display in the gauge cluster. While some screens convey depth using visual tricks, Hyundai’s gauge cluster comprises two separate screens that are placed 6 millimeters apart from each other. It gives the gauge cluster more visual depth, and according to Hyundai, it reduces distraction by placing the most important information on the foremost screen.Customization like this has grown in importance over the last few years. As AI voice assistants and app integration grow in prevalence, there’s been an increased focus on being able to customize a telematics layout to give the driver exactly what they want and nothing that they don’t. These screens could theoretically be linked to a user profile, so each time a different driver enters the vehicle, everything is laid out to their personal specifications.Of course, being a concept, Hyundai hasn’t said if or when this type of cockpit will make it to production. But it’s all part of a larger in-depth study of new-car interiors and how automakers can reduce distraction while boosting the technology behind the scenes. Auto Tech Future Carslast_img read more
