Notes for select teams are below the ratings. At this time, there is no "weighted ranting" list.  That list is more useful when there is a clear group of teams that is established near the top of the ratings.  The early ratings are more volatile.

The following list is a normal function of my formula, but it's still something 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 is only needed for 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).
Massachusetts

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.

Massachusetts
