NOTE: Somehow my alphabetical list of teams defaulted to an old list.  This resulted in teams starting with the letters I and K to be mixed up.  For instance, Illiniois was given Indiana's ranking and Kent St. was given Kentucky's rating.  This has been fixed as of about 12:30 p.m. PDT and 3:30 p.m. EDT.

The following list is a normal function of my formula, but it's still 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 (usually after their second or third win).
South Alabama
UNC-Charlotte

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.
Cincinnati
Colorado
Hawaii
Houston
Memphis
North Texas 
UT-San Antonio
