I have mixed feelings about doing these in the first place, but since there’s a national championship, I thought I’d do my best at putting together rankings.
This really reminds me of late 90s high school quiz bowl, when the power teams were largely clustered geographically and there weren’t nearly as many teams playing on pyramidal questions.
I really don’t have a comfort level here in terms of how accurate I think these adjustments are. Some of them are based on straight translations for my high school calculations. So, don’t go betting money based off of this.
Also, I can almost guarantee that I’ve mixed up the home states of teams in these rankings. Let me know if I messed anything up.
