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.
