Nutshell Sports NCAA Football Ratings
Welcome to my fantasy.

I used to track the lines and rate the teams according to how the line changed from week to week. And I noticed something interesting. Just because a good team lost wasn't necessarily a reason for them to change a team's rating. That got my gears turning. A few years later I designed this system using that theory. It is based on head to head competition. There is no exaggerated margin of victory factor and there is no schedule strength. They are natural in this system.

I've decided that accuracy and consistency are more important than winning contests. Therefore I will leave this system unchanged and if I want to experiment I will do it with another system. This rating is geared to the end of the season so things will move rather slowly to that point. To see a much quicker reacting system, go to Naked Eye Ratings.
