Mr. Crimson True-Ratings: Week 4, Rankings 1.

I've devised a simple measure for figuring out who's the best in the world of college football. It looks at two things: margin of victory and strength of schedule. It does not use any pre-rankings, any current rankings, it does not assume anything, and it does not anticipate anything. These biscuits are made entirely from scratch.

Best Undefeated Team: Alabama.

Worst Undefeated Team: Cincinnati

Best 1-loss Team: Arizona State.

Worst 1-loss team: Middle Tennessee State

Best .500 team: Michigan

Worst .500 team: Miami (OH)

Best 1-win team: Auburn

Worst 1-win team: Colorado

Best zero-win team: UAB

Worst zero-win team: Idaho

10+1. Iowa (2-2)- Kirk Ferentz (65.)

10+2. Illinois (2-2)- Tim Beckman (66.)

All other conferences are mostly irrelevant and I feel inclusion of the Big 10 represents the rest of the bunch rather well.

Top 25 Teams!

note: This is not a poll. It is a measurement. The placement of teams is based on how closely they measure up to the #1 team in relation to the #124 team. As such, there may not be 25 teams in the Top 25, because there may not be 25 teams that are worthy of competing at that level (and this year, there most certainly are not). Teams that tie are virtually identical (no matter what you've heard). There will be gaps, possibly based on performance anxiety. Those teams that haven't played any games aren't rewarded for playing that one decent game and then hanging out playing X-Box while waiting for the other teams to tire themselves out, practically every team in the Big 12. You wanna be ranked with Alabama? Play some games.

Next week I will post a top to bottom ranking showing all 124 teams which will give everyone out there a better feel for how this system works (the answer is awesomely, in spite of Georgia being tied with Oregon for reasons I'll never begin to understand... if Mark Richt has lost control of everything, it's apparently because he has his grubby fingers all over my true ratings.) No matter, team performance levels change every single week, and so will the rankings. By the end... everything will be made clear as a crystal football.
