Sagarin ratings take several weeks to really be meaningful as far as ratings go as they're based on several years history. Example, look at FAU's starting position this season; Also 1A to 1AA are apples & oranges due to schedule differences. Most rating services have them (1A & 1AA) seperate as it should be. 1AA schools do not play a season schedule that even comes close to 1A's in comparison.

Here's the Massey Composite Rankings (31 services reporting)

#65 North Texas
#90 Troy
#99 MTSU
#101 NMSU
#104 UTah State
#105 UL-Lafayette
#109 Idaho
#112 Arkansas State
#116 UL-Monroe

You have UL-Monroe listed twice. I'm guessing we're the top one?

???????????? These are two different polls. The first poll is the Sagarin poll. It includes all Division I schools that play football. The second poll is the Massey Composite, which covers Division 1=A only.

Sagarin's poll is heavily biased toward the current BCS teams. It is also included as one of the (currently 31) rating services averaged in the Massey Composite. Sagarin gives seven of the BCS teams their highest ranking of any of the 31. He may be the most published but he's far from the most accurate.

After about four weeks Sagarin throws out the preseason ranking and re-rates everyone based only on games played that season. Once that happens Sagarin is usually pretty good. Until that point the rankings you see are based on a five year average.
