Each computer that would lower them in the poll is only worth 1.66667 (1/6) and each poll that lowers them is 0.5

If OK lost, I would expect them to pick up maybe 1.5 point from the human polls, 1.5 (9/6) from the computer polls and 1 from the loss.

Why?

The pollsters would still keep them in the top 3. IF OK lost, they'd still be the best one-loss team unless they got blown out and committed like 5 turnovers.

The computers still would rank them high, TCU was in CUSA and in most polls they were in the top 10, and that computer on crack (NY TIMES) would drop them to like 25, but they would be dropped anyway. I expect that the 6 highest polls would have them ranked 2 or 3 (3 would drop them to 2, and 3 would drop them to 3).




Finished week 1 of my 2002-2003 College Football raitings. Only 17 weeks to go, then I can start on this season, sigh...

They met each other in Ireland in '96, so there should be some members of the Athletic Department staffs who should be familiar with the logistics. Doing it for the opening game of the season seems odd though.
