The computer rankings will reflect the outcome of a game and the margins of the game in relation to how other opponents fared against that opponent. So, if a team doesn’t create a schedule that provides relationships beyond an isolated area or region of the Atlantic (conferences), the wins and margins will not yield accurate results. So early on teams may be up in the top 10, because of early results, but as the better teams beat better teams, the value of the wins will start to separate, and a clear picture will be presented. Will be interesting.
Look at Penn State Football, No 2 in the country. They played lesser teams in the first 6, now we’ll see how good they are. Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State. Their ranking will probably be dramatically altered by these three games.
