Missouri's 4-0 record doesn't get much respect due to the perceived quality of the competition they have faced so far. Are they being unfairly maligned? An interesting fifteen team section of the FO S&P+ rankings may give you some food for thought.

Oklahoma beats gets credit for beating Florida State, and Missouri gets little credit for beating SDSU and Illinois, which are virtually equivalent teams. Admittedly, OU pounded FSU and Mizzou didn't pound SDSU and Illinois, but the point still stands. Similarly, South Carolina and Mississippi State get kudos for beating Georgia, as does Boise for defeating Oregon State.
Something to chew on when you evaluate schedules and quality of wins: Vanderbilt and Tennessee might just be equivalent.
