That's interesting.  No 2000s at all in there.  #26 on the list was the first, which was Michigan at 0.310.  Solid indication of the number of fluff games played now.

So basically add addition games from when there were 9-10 to now with 12-15 have strictly been money-grabs.

Yep.  Expanding the number of games has worked mostly to expand the number of creampuffs on the schedule.

70's and 80's are strong for the Big 8 and SWC and Notre Dame

the SEC comes on stronger in the 2000s

when did the 12th game become a permanent game? 05-06? and those 12th games almost exclusively got filled by rent-a-win teams. makes sense no 00's are in there.

My memory is that teams might played 6 conference games back in the day and 4 others, 2-3 of which might be decent opponents.

Most teams with 12 game slates played 8 conference games and 1 good opponent and 3 pastries.  Most still do that.
