Revised Historical Rankings

I've revised rankings for all college football teams since 1900 that have sufficient sample size (see "Past Rankings" on right panel). These rankings are based on a statistical equation that accounts for wins and losses, margin of victory, and strength of schedule. It is designed to mimic the ranking process, but without the biases and heuristics that limit human voters.

Looking at #1s, the computer and I only disagree once since my birth-Kansas in 2007. Dartmouth in 1970 is also a curious pick (#14 AP that season) and Cornell over Texas A&M in 1939 is personally disagreeable.
