2012 Gus Rankings: Week 7

This week's Gus Rankings are here.  Notre Dame takes over the top spot for the first time in Gustory, followed by Ohio State, Florida, Alabama and Oregon State.  On the other end of the spectrum, Massachusetts catches Akron at the bottom of the list.  New Mexico State is still in the hunt for the worst team but they are seeing some separation by the Minutemen and the Zips.

Another fun aspect of the Gus Rankings, as far as I'm concerned, is the ability to compare the best with the worst in an absolute sense; namely, is Notre Dame better than Akron and Massachusetts are bad?  Last week, the bads held the edge, while Notre Dame reclaimed that title this week (+19 to -18).  Stay tuned for this season's epic race away from 0.

One more fun note: Cincinnati has played 3 FBS teams through 7 weeks.  Thanks for breaking a 5, Cincy!  The same is true of Texas-San Antonio, though they'll get a pass for the time being as they're a FBS newcomer, and furthermore aren't in a BCS conference.  That being said, Cincinnati still isn't the lowest rated zero-loss team-- that would be the Ohio Bobcats, checking in at #28.

Obviously Gus has a bias against MAC schools.
