    Using the women's tables (because lower speeds than sprinting 100m), it shows a 0.075 second advantage, about the same as a 1.2mps tailwind.

    This is why limiting the (CFB) playoffs to no more than four teams is really important to me. Get 8 or 16 teams in and individual games no longer really matter.
