You ask "my rankings continue to differ significantly from Sagarin and Massey Composite, both of which have the SEC at no better than #3. What am i missing?"

I think the answer is in the weighting - you are weighing super wins just a little too much. Try 1.8X and 1.3X instead (just a suggestion).

Thanks for the suggestion. I could try that. BTW, my system is also under-valuing the ACC, since both Massey and Sagarin have the ACC at either #1 or #2, while I have the ACC at #4.

Then again, last year, my system had the ACC at #1 in the final tally *before* the bowl games, and at that time both Sagarin and Massey had the SEC #1 and the ACC at around #3. They didn't detect that the ACC was really the best until after the ACC had its great bowl season, but my system anticipated that. So maybe mine isn't the system in need of correcting, LOL.
