Covariance Rankings After Ten Weeks

Okay, so another week passed with me failing to produce an all-encompassing excel file with all the advanced goodies in it. Will try again next week. In the meantime, here's a Covariance update. As a reminder, Covariance is your look at which teams play their best against good teams and which play best against poor ones. At the top are the "best against worst" teams; at the bottom, the "best against best" teams. Plenty of good (and bad) teams at both ends of the list.

(And yes, my Tigers have picked a poor time to be a "best against worst" team, considering they have barely played any "worst" teams.)
