Week 6 - Seperation

Finally this week, the Internet felt some seperation between teams.  There's still a lot of ties, but, the ties are over smaller spreads and The Internet comfortably feels there's a distinct spread of roughly 25 teams to rank.

Week 5 - Here's Some Variety

Well, The Internet finally decided to have more than 4-5 teams ranked without pulling its nails.  The Interent is complaining that there is sitll a lot of sameyness (Its' words) in the bottom 1/4 of the 25, but it was worth completing to get a more traditional list. 

I'll ignore the fact there are like 7 teams tied at 23.  The Interent really loves ties.  I don't know why.  At least I know what to get it for christmas.

Here is the list for posterity's sake:

Week 4 - Still Samey

There still isn't enough difference to really differentiate teams, according to The Internet.  It went ahead and ranked some teams #1 because it seemed like the thing to do, but it doesn't feel passionate about its rankings, at any level, according to The Internet.  Of course the Eye-test for me is still heavily favoring Alabama, but The Internet sees very little seperation.

Next week, with most teams having played at least two conference opponents, is when things should get interesting.  

For posterity:

Week 3

Although more than 25 teams (26 actually) have received positive ranks in The Internet's scoring system, it is still hesitant to qualify 25 teams for ratings. Probably because teams are still so tightly bunched together.

I've told The Internet that my eye test massively favors Alabama, but The Internet has paid me little mind. It went as far as to rank Alabama second this week, but tired with six other teams at second.  What else can I do?  These are The Internet's rankings.  

For Posterity:

Week 2

The Internet has instructed me to inform you all that It is watching, It is listening to what's going on in college football this year.

College Football Season 2017 Summary

After cow-towing to the masses, the Internet did a lot of self assertion at the end of the season.  For instance, the Internet was not contractually oblibated to vote a particular team #1, so it decided on a three way tie.  I can't disagree with that too much.    Alabama had the best Elo, so it deserves a #1 ranking.  But with Wisconsin and UCF also with very high Elos, and many of the rankings which feature anything subjective liking Wisconsin and UCF, it makes sense that the argument for them deserving a #1 ranking is strong to me.

Pre Championship

The Internet did calculate ranks before the finals, here they are:

Week 14 - It All Comes Down To This

Well, it all comes down to this.  The season isn't over yet, and this isn't the last summary of The Interent's college football power rankings, but this might be the most important one. Because true college football fans know, that while bowls are cool and very important, the ranking at the end of the regular season (for all intent's and purposes, although Army and Navy will play next week in a game that's technically considered part of the regular season) is what everyone remembers next season.  So I pressured the Internet to take some firm stands, and to not allow any ties.  The Internet

Week 13 - The Internet Does Not Respect Auburn or Mississippi State

The College Football Playoff Committee's official ratings and The Internet's rankings took a major divergence.

For me, I understand where The Internet is coming from a lot more than the CFPC.  Auburn is a two loss team.  Why are they in the top four with so many one loss team, and a couple undefeated teams standing?  I get the argument "well they beat Alabama."  Okay,  Then why is Alabama dropped to five then?  If Alabama is SO good that Auburn defeating them pushes them up to the top four, shouldn't Alabama still be one of the top four teams, with other one loss teams there? 

Week 12 - Internet is Having Problems Telling These Teams Apart

The teams on the Top 25 this week aren't that different from what the alleged professionalsare claiming, but The Internet is having trouble making some distinctions between some of these teams.  Here is what The Internet says:
