The Schmitz Index (Week 10)

In 1999, I was convinced that Virginia Tech was the best team in the nation (behind QB Michael Vick).  I created the Schmitz Index to prove it.  It didn't work—no matter what I tried, VT was not the #1 team in the nation.  It is not on of the BCS Computers.

The Schmitz Index ranks the FBS teams on W/L Pct. (50%), Strength of Schedule (25%), a Margin of Victory that collapses runaway scores (15%), Points Scored (5%) and Net Average Yards (5%).  SOS looks at opponents' and opponent's opponnent's ratings in the other categories above.

A shuffle-up at the top this week with Oregon beating ASU.  Oklahoma with their impressive win over Texas A&M leapfrogs ASU and West Virginia.
