For today's Morning Tailgate piece on conference realignment and the up-to-date (and future) balance of power in college football, I am using an updated five-year average of F/+ ratings. It is basically an average consisting of 2007-10 and the first half of the 2011 season. (So really, it's a 4.5-year average. But hey, round up.) For "playing along at home" purposes, I'm including the full list here. Flip the pieces around however you like. Enjoy.
