    This is a little thing I have been working on this season and will be continuing to do in the following seasons. Basically this is a user vs user leaderboard where the only thing that really matters is W or L (# of user games played is in there too). If any of you are familiar with the TrueSkill algorithm that is what I used for this in a basic form and what tools I could find for it online.

    We all started out at the same "level" and based on user/user games actually played the results were entered and calculated from there. So missing games against users and not having as many user games on your schedule will of course decrease your game count. The less games you play the less certain the system is of where you lie on the board.

    Updated to season 2, through the first 12 weeks of the season (# of user games played):

    2. LSU (8)
    2. Florida (7)
    4. Oregon (8)
    4. Notre Dame (9)
    5. Georgia (7)
    6. USC (6)
    7. Michigan (5)
    8. Washington (7)
    9. Iowa (7)
    10. Ohio State (6)
    11. Ole Miss (2)
    12. Oregon State (5)

    We all know that user games drive the results of Conference Championships and National Championships so I thought that it would be cool to show how people are playing in there user games over the course of many seasons. Remember this doesn't take into account your teams poll ranking or overall ratings. This is just user vs user.

    *edit* 8/11/2011 Found an error and corrected it that cause Washington and Iowa to switch spots.
    *edit* 8/15/2011 Final through the National Championship. These include LSU's win over Georgia in the SEC Championship and Notre Dame's win over Oregon in the NC even though the advances failed.
    *edit* 8/29/2011 Through the first 7 weeks of season 2.
    *edit* 8/29/2011 Through the first 8 weeks of season 2.
    *edit* 9/7/2011 Through the first 12 weeks of season 2.
    *edit* 9/9/2011 Through the first 13 weeks of season 2.

    I would like to see the math behind this, because the results make no sense. Is it tied to score at all?

    I've had 4, unless you're getting rid of the Bama result, which I could understand.

    What goes into the math for these rankings, out of curiosity?

    *edit* I have you down for 4 games, there are a lot of manual steps yet so I missed a game in the user game column.

    I have the Alabama game, I don't have you playing week 2, did you play niuhuskie224 that week or the cpu? Those first couple weeks I had to back track and get results and may have messed some up. I can correct it if that is the case.

    Kind of a long read, but, I like this explanation.

    Absolutely not tied to score, national ranking, or team ratings. Only tied to wins and losses.

    Final board through the 2011 season. May round to whole numbers for next season to show how close it is, there will be ties on the board if that happens.
