Final College Football Rankings for 2007

|

I finally got around to producing my final rankings for the 2007 season. I’ve tweaked the algorithm a bit, optimizing the parameters so that it doesn’t give a completely wacky top ten. Essentially, the final score is now only contributing to 25% of the quality. The rest of the quality is being determined by a won or loss check.

I’ve also added columns for Best Game and Worse Game, which give you and idea about the position in the rankings that the results of those games are claiming that the teams should have.
