That would be cool but I don't think Michigan would choose to miss out on free money ($7.5m I think?)

The professors and researchers at Georgia Tech have used LRMC (Logistic Regression/Markov Chain) to yield the most accurate results of any rating system in the past 5+ years. Take a look at the second link for mroe info on the statistical analysis, pretty fascinating stuff.
Another favorite of mine comes from the guys at MiniTab. In their method, they apply regression models to a particular rating system. Last year they used LRMC but this year, after analyzing how different systems performed throughout the regular season, they decided to use Sagarin's ratings for the models.

|14 weeks 5 days ago||Seeding probabilities for||
Seeding probabilities for Michigan (assuming every game is 50/50 and independent):
1st: 0/32 = 0%
2nd: 6/32 = 18.75%
3rd: 8/32 = 25%
4th: 10/32 = 31.25%
5th: 8/32 = 25%
Overall expected seed: (0/32)(1) + (6/32)(2) + (8/32)(3) + (10/32)(4) + (8/32)(5) = 3.625
Overall expected seed of other teams:
Indiana: (27/32)(1) + (3/32)(2) + (2/32)(3) + (0/32)(4) + (0/32)(5) = 1.21875
Ohio State: (1/32)(1) + (14/32)(2) + (9/32)(3) + (7.5/32)(4) + (0.5/32)(5) = 2.765625
Wisconsin: (4/32)(1) + (6/32)(2) + (5/32)(3) + (5.5/32)(4) + (11.5/32)(5) = 3.453125
Michigan: (0/32)(1) + (6/32)(2) + (8/32)(3) + (10/32)(4) + (8/32)(5) = 3.625
Michigan State: (0/32)(1) + (3/32)(2) + (8/32)(3) + (9/32)(4) + (12/32)(5) = 3.9375
