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:
Mrs. Wargo – The best math teacher that I ever had.
Peter Wolfe – Every Sunday morning, Peter provides a document that lists the scores for every college football game (NCAA and NAIA). His efforts not only made developing the ratings list more efficient, but his efforts inspired and enabled me to begin DRatings. 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. A special thank you to Kenneth for his efforts and making the rankings available to 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. His tracker lends credibility to DRatings and many others. Todd, thank you for your efforts, they are greatly appreciated.
