I was born near Toledo and was a Lions fan early on (Detroit is the closest big TV market, not one of the 3 Cs).  I didn't have strong feelings about the rivalry, even though an uncle was a vocal OSU alum, although I liked OSU in undergrad.  I got into grad school at UM and OSU, and when I took the OSU offer, I started paying lots of attention to and rooting for OSU.  Now I live near Ann Arbor and have to bring my son up right, as he was born at Wexner (and loves the Brutus statue in the union).

The 247 composite is a weighted average, with weights decaying with number of players. It's basically one metric summarizing number of players and average rating. For lower rated players after the first 15, there basically isn't a penalty (say, for kickers).
