I'd like to thank (in chronological order) Jeff Sagarin, Kenneth Massey, George Eldredge, Matthew Welch and David Wilson.

I became interested in computer rankings in the 2003 college football season.  I contacted Jeff Sagarin with some questions, a couple of which he was nice enough to answer.  After following his ratings over some time, I developed a degree of respect for them. 

I started following the BCS computers some time after that and eventually found my way to Massey's comparison page.  I looked at a few that I liked, and this led me to George (GBE) and Matthew (SquareGear).  I used their pages for help with my SoS, and tinkering with George's formula is how I developed my own ratings system.

David Wilson suggested that I post on this page and I believe will be adding this to his ratings directory.
