This is the (weak) argument for ELO. Voters tend to jump on bandwagons and vote with bias. ELO is supposed to provide an unbiased perspective. The problem is that some judgement is needed. For example, strength of conference is a big factor, but can't be quantified. Therefore, an 8-0 Acadia team gets a lot more ELO points than they deserve.
