2014 Gus Rankings: Gus++ Week 5

Our apologies for the two weeks' break!  We're back at it and all formula'd up.

One quick note-- I neglected to mention a new part of the rankings.  We've added in a strength of opponents measure as well.  Basically, without the details, teams receive more points from defeating teams that play stronger schedules and lose less points from these same teams (and vice versa).  If there's sufficient demand for the details, I'd be happy to lay it out for all to see.  Again, as we go through the season it should be interesting to see how it all shakes out.  And if anything emerges as a shortcoming...that goes on the list for next year's improvements!

Without further ado, here are this week's rankings.  Notre Dame finds itself atop the list, followed by Oklahoma, Nebraska, Alabama and Mississippi.  On the other end of the spectrum, Massachusetts has staked itself to a strong lead for the title of worst team in America.
