Rankings through December 1st

Like all but one of the official BCS computer rankings, the (having nothing to do with the process) RWFL rankings have Florida at #2, not just at our selected p=0.75 bias parameter but at all values of p, despite Alabama's SEC Championship win over Georgia. But Florida is #4 in the polls, and rules are rules.

Speaking of rules being rules, with the title game set between Notre Dame and Alabama, the controversy is about Northern Illinois getting a BCS Bowl bid. Needing to finish ahead of only one automatic qualifying conference champion, they're ahead of two (FSU and Wisconsin), both in the official standings and in the RWFL rankings visualized below (where we even get an appearance from Div-II Minnesota State).
