Some quick thoughts.

1. Virginia Tech at #6 and #5, and Miami at #10 and #11 respectively. Is that surprising to anyone?

2. There are 3 ACC teams and 3 SEC teams in the top 15 on the OVERALL Highest Pct list. Does this have any relevance in the SEC>ACC debate, at least for last 10 years? Are the SEC teams superior and a thus a more competitive conference where attrition exist? Or is this just SEC arrogance at its best?

3. If FSU had not had the blues during 2001 (8-4), 2002 (9-5), 2005 (8-5), 2006 (7-6), 2007 (7-6), where would the NOLES be ranked on the OVERALL list?

4. Does anyone see anything else here worth mentioning?
