  1. Take note of other major computer rankings.

    Ken Pomeroy is well respected and his rankings are used by some committee members. The Gators are #1 on that! http://www.kenpom.com

    ESPN made a new computer ranking called the Basketball Power Index. Takes a lot of factors into consideration, even takes into account when players are injured! Florida ranks #4 on that! http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bpi
