    I recently went to the trouble of importing EVERY 2005 college game as of December 2nd (DI-A through NAIA) into a simple Microsoft Access database. I didn't want to spend a lot of time on normalizing the database and on table structure, since I just needed it for my own purposes. I also only bothered entering more detail on colleges in Divisions I-A and AA. There should be sufficient data in here to do rankings by team, conference, etc. using any sort of mathematical formula that you choose, provided that you have a good understanding of SQL statements and of Microsoft Access.

    Anyway, I am making this data available in case anyone else has use for it. Even though no one has asked for it, I thought there had to be a couple people that would find it interesting.

    I won't be on much in the next couple days and won't be able to provide support. It's going to be provided "as-is". Have fun.

    Not much typing involved. I found a resource on the internet that had all the games listed, I just had to import them all, create the lookup tables, create primary/foreign relationships.

    It still took a little effort, but not nearly as much as typing it all in.
