This blogs rankings are unbiased in terms of image, personal opinion, reputation, or opinions in general (No “Eye Test”). It is based on who a team played, who won, and where they stand. As this ranking is based on game outcomes, records and opponents, rankings are made as of that week and not on potential outcomes from future weeks. Team rankings may change (up or down), weekly regardless of win, loss, or bye.
Teams with strong, or what appears to be a strong schedule in the early parts of the season can drop based on a weak late season schedule, even if they continue to win. The opposite is also true.
The previous season’s final rankings may be used as a ranking tie breaker for ranking purposes.
