So here are my week five rankings compared to Colley and ESPN. I am calling them MARS for "minimally adjusted reduced score". I have copyrighted my process as MARS or the MARS rank.
This week 32 teams were required to represent the top 25 of MARS and the two comparison systems, Colley and ESPN. Things are tightening up as Colley and MARS were common on 20 teams, ESPN and MARS were common on 21 teams, and Colley and ESPN were common on 21 teams. Nineteen teams were common to all three systems in top 25.
Miami FL remains my biggest outlier, with Wisconsin also a notable omission. South Carolina, Pittsburgh, and UCLA are my questionable inclusions.
