Thoughts:
  • While the SEC has the better teams at the top, the BIG XII has the overall lead because they've minimized the bottom feeders. Other than Kansas, most of the BIG XII teams are decent, if not solid
  • Similarly, the B1G has a better ranking than the PAC 12, though the PAC 12 has better top end teams.
  • The ACC is ahead of the Big East despite the Big East having a winning record against the ACC. The difference comes from the ACC having a number of decent teams whereas the Big East is feast or famine.
  • After the Big East, the drop off is substantial down to the WAC & Sun Belt. And with the majority of conference games over, I don't expect the gap to shrink.
  • While Conference USA has played a strong schedule, they have little to show for it. Because of this, they are at the bottom by a wide margin.
