You may notice the appearance of this isn't quite as good.   Both the primary and secondary computers are inoperable.  The data has not been lost, but it is exceedingly difficult to process at this time.  If you would like to make a donation to assist with these costs (note something about repairs if so), it would be greatly appreciated.

The following list is a normal function of my formula, but it's still something I consider worth noting.  If I don't adjust these ratings, very large negative numbers are produced by certain losses, and it gives too much weight to that one week.  These teams have been given the minimum rating as opponents (not above) in place of their actual rating.  These are only teams with at least one FBS/I-A win.  More teams are added to this list as teams have more losses relative to (usually, the one) win. 
Army
Eastern Michigan
Fresno St.
Hawaii
Massachusetts
New Mexico
New Mexico St.
North Texas
Southern Methodist
Texas-San Antonio
UNC-Charlotte
Wyoming

The following also had off-the-charts (weak) strengths of schedules that had to be adjusted:  This usually is only an issue early in the year.
