Georgia State could go 0-11 and lose to every FBS team by 50 points yet Chatty, Samford, UTC still get "good win" points out of it. I also say this because Georgia State might not even be a .500 team if they were FCS, even with the "extra scholarship advantage".
In some ways, this spreadsheet might actually mitigate that phenomenon. Instead of saying someone beat a FBS team, it says which one. That lets the reader decide for himself how impressive it is or isn't.
