I still think USC vs. La Tech can be supported via the data, and there are a number of computer rankings out there that agree with me. No, it's not a slam dunk. But you chose to use La Tech's ranking, something that colonels openly admits that HE doesn't see as right with the rankings in an illustration of a selling point. Sorry, I find that to be BS. If La Tech was #1, they would still be ahead of USC - is that still a selling point of the system?
Like I said, you can make an argument that La Tech belongs ahead of USC based purely on the data (I think, for instance, that Syracuse might be a better win than anything La Tech has - yes they struggled against Stony Brook, but they also lost two games by a combined 8 points to 2 teams that have 1 loss between them) - though I think it's less than iron clad. There are any number of those teams they are also ranked ahead of that they have no business being ahead of - so La Tech's ranking is NOT a highlight at the moment, whether they are ranked ahead of one particular team you believe is merited based on the results.
I agree with you, for the most part, on the overall point - but find a better illustration - La Tech at #7 doesn't support your point. I will make one caveat - with so few results at this point, I think there is still very much to be said for the eye test relative to computer rankings - I'm sure that's one of the reasons why they wait a while to release BCS standings.
