College Basketball: 73-team Power Conference Ranking

Power Conference Ranking

 

During the 2007-08 season, I posted occasionally BCS Conference power rankings that spurred some interesting debates. Sure, everyone knows the best teams in the nation, but it was particularly interesting (and offensive to some fans) to see who the worst of the worst was. With some extra time on my hands, I decided to bring back the ranking once again. In the right hand column, you'll see the team's ranking in my overall Top 50 for reference. However, the Top 50 #'s are weekly and don't include the latest games (ie, Texas losing to Kansas St) which is why the overall order has changed.

 

Amazing that at the same time in 2007-08, UCLA was #1 on the list, and they are now 67th out of 73. Kentucky, meanwhile went from #22 in the middle of that season to our current #1.
