My long awaited NCAA College Football Division IA Rankings for 2005 are available! I really like the formula I came up with, and my final results seem more or less on par with what the AP and coaches poll came up with, and the end results more or less make sense to me as well. TCU seems like they're ranked a little higher than they deserve, but that's because of the high emphasis on win percentages. I thought the SOS would knock them back down, but I guess 15% doesn't compete with 50% very well. And VT is probably too high up there despite not winning any big games during the regular season (except perhaps WVU), but I think that's because they have a ridiculous points margin in the remainder of their games. GT is also pretty high on the list due to our 5th toughest strength of schedule in the country. I might play with the weighting a little bit and see how things shake out. But I hope to make these rankings a weekly fixture next year, so we'll see how that goes. Once I get everything set just the way I want it, I'm going to not adjust anything and see how everything shakes out over the course of the next season. That will either show that my formula makes good sense or was only designed well enough to handle the most recent season.
