Week 14 and 15 - Regular Season and Quasi-Post Season Complete

All right!  It's been a long journey, but we're finally here.  The college football season is complete.  The conference finals (for teams that have them) are also complete! 

You might notice something different from the Interent's top 4 . . .Ohio State has edged out Oklahoma in The Interenet's poll.  The reason being is that at least this season, The Interent just doesn't think Ohio State's one loss is as bad as the rest of the world seems to think it is.  The Interent complains that this is an abbiration, because it can read Itself, it knows most people have Oklahoma ahead of Ohio State.  But it doesn't have a promatic way to represent this.  Since Ohio State has more direct rank points, higher formulaic score, and higher Elo, it ultimately gets the edge.

If The Interent was determining the playoffs the way that the College Football Playoff comittee was, this sure would be catostraphic to Oklahoma State.  Luckily for Ohio State, though, The Internet has some other ideas.  It's going to do some playoffs of Its own!  And it's going to include eight teams!  How, though, is still sort of up in the air, since it's not exactly possible for The Interent to get these teams to play each other.  But worry not, it will surely be convuled and somewhat goofy, but ultimately true, just the way that The Internet likes it.

Also, The Interenet is committing (and trying to make me commit to) a firmly ranked top 50, with no ties.  It allowed some ties in its ranks this time around, since it sort of didn't matter outside of the top 8 where teams were ranked to It.  Next time though, it's going for deep precision.  All right, here are week 14 and week 15's ratings, for posterity's sake:
