Computer Numbers Week 5: Increased Strength of Schedule

These are the computer numbers with the strength of schedule metric increased.  This fixed most of the oddness in the ballot this week, but some still remains.   I think an increase in the importance of win/loss would help in a lot of cases (bump up Boise St., Cincy, Auburn, BYU; bump down Penn State, Ohio State, Arizona, Nebraska, UConn, Oklahoma, West Virginia) but hurt in a few others (bump up Iowa and South Florida; bump down Miami).  If you're up to it, please take a peek across the numbers and see if you think there's a pattern that justifies modifying the weights to a factor.  Remember, we can always just go with human overrides if that's warranted.
