Week 8 - I Didn't Watch the Chaos

Well, I'd love to talk a ton about this week's ratings, but the only college football game I saw actually was Arizona against UCLA and I'd rather try to forget that one.  So I'll have to lean heavily on The Interent's rankings.  But geeze.  That's a lot of chaos.  The College Football Playoff rankings are going to be nuts, unless they're boring jerks.  And, well, they're usually boring jerks so I don't have a ton of hope for it all.

One thing, The Interent ended up penalizing what it calls "one rank point" for its loss to Troy.  Although funny enough, they still ended up ranked. 

Week 7 - Disappointment

Firstly, sorry for the delay.  I thought official playoff ranks were out this week and wanted to contrast the Interenet's, but they actually aren't out for two weeks.

There was quite a shakeup last week. Lots of teams that The Internet expected a lot of just didn't quite make it. This has caused teams to rebunch and the separation to fade. Notre Dame keeps its rank, because The Internet does not see margin of wins, but they are teetering. UCF also was lucky to only drop one spot.

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
