2 Year Snapshots: 2013-2017

Please do not post this information anywhere else

Snapshot” is the term I use for taking a selected amount of years and assigning a national program ranking based on the “Elite Teams and Tiers” Point System. This post features 2-year rankings (the year listed plus the previous year).

Here is the point system for tiers:

  • 5 points – National Champion. 4 points – National Championship Game Participant. 3 Points – Elite Season (Any team that finishes in the Top 5 of the Final AP Poll or any team in the Top 15 that has defeated another Elite Team). 2 Points – Big Boy Season (the non-elite top 15 teams in the final AP Poll and any top 25 team that has defeated a top 15 team). 1 point – Fringe Top 25 Season (Any team left in the top 25 or has a winning record and has defeated a top 25 team). 0 Points – Mediocre Season (any team left with a winning record or any team with a .500 record that has beaten an FBS team with a winning record). -1 Points – Weak Season (Any team left with a .500 record or a team with a losing record that has beaten an FBS team with a winning record). -2 Points – Bottom Feeder (A team with a losing record that has not beaten an FBS team with a winning record)

Elite Programs are listed in their school colors.
