Having said the, I see very little value ranking teams based on pre-season results.

As with the pros, I don't think these results are indicative of the true strength of a team.
True enough. The OHT34 uses the pre-season as a starting point which gradually diminishes in value. The interlocking games do help gauge teams across conferences as well.
