RTT draft BlogPoll ballot: the raw computer rankings

Time for yet another iteration of the RTT Ready, Fire, Aim BlogPoll ballotty thing. For a complete refresher on what we're doing, go here, here, here, and here.

Adjustments for this week:

  • None. The thing appears to be stablizing somewhat, and any tweaks, I think, can simply be ad hoc human interventions, for which I'm soliciting assistance below.
  • The categories again: Win/Loss, Strength of Schedule, Pass Efficiency Defense, Rush Defense, 3rd Down Offense, Total Defense, Pass Efficiency Offense, Experience, Opponents Points Per Game, Total Offense, and 3rd Down Defense. The AVG R column is Average Ranking, and the last column is Weighted Average.
  • The current weighting of the categories: 30, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
  • Current spreadsheet here.

All right, then. The Top 35, according to the computer:

I'd like to do things a little bit different this week. Rather than me issue-spotting the computer results and implementing the human interventions myself, I'd like to get your feedback. No limit on interventions this time around. We're just looking for something approaching a consensus. I won't actuallly submit the ballot MGoBlog's site until we're somewhat comfortable with it.

So, what changes do y'all think we should make to the top 25?
