Basketball Blogpoll: A Sea of Blue's ballot

Btn_ball_medium

OK, so I have been remiss updating the basketball blogpoll this year.  So sue me.  Anyway, I did submit a ballot all bot one time so far (in week one).  What you see below is my Week 3 ballot, and the deltas between Week 2.

This year, I have changed my ranking system.  I am taking input from several different sources, manipulating the numbers and coming up with a score which is then used to rank the teams.  I don't think this is any better or worse than other systems, it is just a derivative of several including but not limited to the RPI and Pomeroy's Pythagorean ranking.  I may change it again later if I decide it isn't giving me what I want.

The big deltas between this week and last are primarily due to a tweak I made.  I was giving a couple of factors way too much weight, and now I have adjusted that so that all the factors have proper weighting (proper by my own rules).  So here we go:
