    CFN did something similar, but strictly went with a 25-down-to-1 points for each final AP poll since 1936. The results are similar to my formula, but I think a National Title and a 25th ranking should be worth more than 2 years at #13, or 1 year at #6 and another year at #20.

    This has been updated after the final polls for the 2011 season.

    OK, here's how this was calculated. I took each team's ranking in every year-end poll since the AP started in 1936. Once 2 polls were involved, I always used the higher ranking. Sliding scale points were awarded for every year that a team ended up ranked, and 10 points were deducted for each losing season. The scale was determined before seeing where teams ended up.

    For each year since 1936, a team earns points based on these criteria:

    NC (#1) in either poll = 100 points
    02 -> 05 = 65, 55, 50, 45 points, respectively
    06 -> 10 = 40, 37, 34, 32, 30 points
    11 -> 20 = 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10 points
    21 -> 25 = 08, 06, 04, 03, 02 points
    non-ranked, but .500 or above = 0 points
    losing record for the year = minus 10 points

    Here are the all-time totals, updated after the 2011 final polls:

    01. 2413 - Oklahoma
    02. 2280 - Alabama (passed ND & tOSU this year)
    03. 2271 - Ohio State (-10 for losing record in 2011)
    04. 2255 - Notre Dame
    T5. 1992 - Michigan
    T5. 1992 - USC
    07. 1779 - Texas
    08. 1706 - Nebraska
    09. 1503 - Tennessee (-10 for losing record in 2011)
    10. 1488 - Penn State
    11. 1183 - Miami
    12. 1159 - LSU
    13. 1134 - Florida State
    14. 1071 - Florida
    15. 1044 - Auburn
    16. 1025 - Georgia
    17. 0859 - UCLA (-10 for losing season in 2011)
    18. 0760 - Arkansas
    19. 0713 - Michigan State
    20. 0569 - Washington
    21. 0545 - Georgia Tech
    22. 0461 - Ole Miss (-10 for losing season in 2011)
    23. 0426 - Texas A&M
    24. 0419 - Pittsburgh (-10 for losing record in 2011)
    25. 0403 - Clemson

    Other schools: Colorado(373), Wisconsin(367), Minnesota(359), Syracuse(317), Army(297), Iowa(285), VaTech(237), Boise St(222), BYU(191), West Va(188), Purdue(115), Stanford(112), Oregon(61), Illinois (13), and Oklahoma St (-88)

    Note: Va Tech, Boise St, BYU, West Va, Stanford, Oregon, and Oklahoma St have been added for 2011

    Since 2007, I have created separate ratings by adding National Championship credit for those earned prior to 1936, on a sliding scale based on 12-year periods.

    1869-1899 - 10 points for each MNC (no top teams here, almost all Ivy League)
    1900-1911 - 25 points for each MNC
    1912-1923 - 50 points for each MNC
    1924-1935 - 75 points for each MNC

    Here are the all-time totals, updated with the pre-1936 MNC points:

    01. 2555 - Alabama (MNCs in '25, '26, '34, 2/3 for '30 = 275)
    02. 2480 - Notre Dame (MNCs in '24, '29, '30 = 225)
    03. 2413 - Oklahoma
    04. 2271 - Ohio State
    05. 2192 - USC (MNCs in '31, '32, 2/3 for '28 = 200)
    06. 2167 - Michigan (MNCs in '01, '02, '23, '33 = 175)
    07. 1779 - Texas
    08. 1706 - Nebraska
    09. 1503 - Tennessee
    10. 1488 - Penn State
    11. 1183 - Miami
    12. 1159 - LSU
    13. 1134 - Florida State
    14. 1071 - Florida
    15. 1044 - Auburn
    16. 1025 - Georgia
    17. 0859 - UCLA
    18. 0760 - Arkansas
    19. 0713 - Michigan State
    20. 0670 - Georgia Tech (MNCs in '17, '28 = 125)
    21. 0569 - Washington
    22. 0544 - Pittsburgh (MNCs in '10, '16' '18 = 125)
    23. 0509 - Minnesota (MNCs in '34, '35 = 150)
    24. 0476 - Texas A&M (MNC in '19 = 50)
    25. 0461 - Ole Miss
    26. 0403 - Clemson
    27. 0397 - Army (MNCs in '14, '16 = 100)
    28. 0373 - Colorado
    29. 0367 - Wisconsin
    30. 0317 - Syracuse

    Note - USC and Bama received 50 points, rather than 75, for disputed titles in '28 and '30, respectively

    Note - Illinois, with MNCs in '14, '23, and '27 fails to make the top 30.
    Note - Stanford, with MNC in 1926, fails to make the top 30.

    This has been updated after the final polls for the 2015 season. Bama has taken over the lead.

    OK, here's how this was calculated. I took each team's ranking in every year-end poll since the AP started in 1936. Once 2 polls were involved (the Coaches Poll started in 1950), I always used the higher ranking. Sliding scale points were awarded for every year that a team ended up ranked, and 10 points were deducted for each losing season. The scale was determined before seeing where teams ended up.

    For each year since 1936, a team earns points based on these criteria:

    NC (#1) in either poll = 100 points
    02 -> 05 = 65, 55, 50, 45 points, respectively
    06 -> 10 = 40, 37, 34, 32, 30 points
    11 -> 20 = 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10 points
    21 -> 25 = 08, 06, 04, 03, 02 points
    non-ranked, but .500 or above = 0 points
    losing record for the year = minus 10 points

    Here are the all-time totals, updated after the 2015 final polls:

    01. 2567 - Alabama
    02. 2518 - Oklahoma
    03. 2506 - Ohio State

    Since 2007, I have created separate ratings by adding National Championship credit for those earned prior to 1936, on a sliding scale based on 12-year periods.

    1869-1899 - 10 points for each MNC (no top teams here, almost all Ivy League)
    1900-1911 - 25 points for each MNC
    1912-1923 - 50 points for each MNC

    It's noteworthy that before the 2016 season, the AP poll did something like this, using each of their polls during every season since 1936, and the results had the Buckeyes as #1. My method only uses the final poll in each season. The method here also puts a higher weight on recent years since there are more weekly polls taken now than there were many years ago.
