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, then others are dropped later in the year.
Florida International
Iowa St.
New Mexico
North Texas

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.
Army 
Ball St.
Baylor
Eastern Michigan
Memphis
Middle Tennessee
New Mexico
Toledo
