    We have obvious differences of opinion concerning the power rankings.

    It can now be statistically proven that the True Power Poll (if that is its real name) is significantly superior to the average power ranking provided by your local and national news outlets.

    As I previously noted, the ESPN preseason power polls are only slightly correlated (0.27 correlation coefficient) to the actual final standings.

    In contrast, the 2008 week 1 Power Poll provided on PPO was highly correlated (0.53 correlation coefficient) to the final 2008 standings.
    And it only got better... by the sixth week of the season, that number is up to an astronomical 0.75.

    I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin.

    I favor entropy too, that's my life in a nutshell.
    I know that somehow there is a pattern, but, I just don't see it so I favor organized insanity.
