This web site and these rankings could not be possible without with encouragement and support of so many people. While it would be impossible to name everyone who has directly or indirectly impacted these ratings, there are a few acknowledgments that are very important:
Peter Wolfe – Every Sunday morning, Peter provides a document that lists the scores for every college football game (NCAA and NAIA). Trying to do this by hand would take hours and I would surely have never been encouraged to even try to do ratings without this data set. The list is found here.
Kenneth Massey – There are a lot of clever people out there with brilliant rating systems, but I would still judge Massey as the best of them. Kenneth is kind enough to host a comparison of all known computer rankings that are up-to-date on his web site. This is surely a very time consuming process and I am very thankful that he has made this available for everyone: College Football Ranking Comparison.
Todd Beck – Todd runs a site called The Prediction Tracker. This site aggregates all of my picks and the picks of many other statisticians and computer geeks across the web and tracks the results. To do this manually would be horrible and no one would believe my results anyways.
