BETWEEN THE SYNAPSES: SAGARIN RANKINGS COMPUTER

Heading into the second half of the season, the brain wave patterns of college football are frenzied indeed.  At Kansas State, theta waves, indicative of drowsiness or arousal in adults, are off the charts.  (Bill Snyder will never tell which.) (It's both.)  Beta wave measurements are impossible to track at USC, where the Trojans are showing signs of active, working brains just a week after muddling through a win at Cal.  Since the State Board of Medicine won't allow me to test out my E-Z-Bake EEG Home Kit, this week we turn to the Ultimate Mind, mechanical though it may be: Jeff Sagarin's computer.
