Some of you may enjoy video games, particularly EA Sports NCAA Football '09. But even those of you who don't probably will find this list of the game's team ratings interesting. The ratings measure every Division I-A team on a 100-point scale on offense, defense and overall.

Georgia and Ohio State are tied at the top with 99 overall ratings. Western Kentucky was last with a 60.

Here's the Pac-10:

It's an interesting pecking order. Arizona and UCLA are a lot higher than many would have them, while Oregon is probably lower.

Some of the numbers are fairly curious, though.

Things that make you go hmm.

Have a great weekend...
