March Madness All Season will publish its conference previews in reverse order. The 31st-ranked conference, the Southwestern Athletic Conference, will kick things off Monday.
Of course you'd rank the SEC third. Ridiculous. The SEC has finished 1st in RPI the past 5 years in a row and going.ReplyDelete
wait, then wouldn't you expect him to pick the SEC first?ReplyDelete
shutup, kurt, ya redneck.ReplyDelete
Says the poster who's too afraid to even reveal his/her identity. Pathetic.ReplyDelete
Atlantic 10 7th? How do you figure?ReplyDelete
Do you think the A-10 should be higher or lower?ReplyDelete
Lower, given that it's been a one bid conference the last few years. Talking it over with some other fans though, it looks like the A-10 has some good teams this year. I guess I'll have to stay tuned for the preview here.ReplyDelete
Yes, they have been down lately, but the MVC is not as strong as it has been in the past two seasons, and the A-10 has very good teams at the top in Xavier and St. Joe's, and several quality teams in the middle-of-the-pack.ReplyDelete
Conference-USA has a very solid Top 4 or 5, but it takes a hit after that.
The Horizon League 14th? After the WCC?!? WTF mate?ReplyDelete
Look for the HL to finish higher than it did last year (12th, 10th in non-conf RPI). It looks even stronger this year as a whole than it did last year at this time.
Funny how Jeff ignores my SEC comment. Hmmm....ReplyDelete
So Kurt, why isn't Florida #1 in every pre-seaon poll this year since they've won it all the last two years? Ya freakin' tard...ReplyDelete
Complaining about this is just silly. When ranking conferences, it is more a question of who has the most bad teams vs who has the most good ones. One poster, above, noted the Horizon League; true you have Butler that will be in the Top 20 all season, but you also have Youngstown State who after being pretty bad a season ago suffered graduation attrition and are likely to be one of the worst teams in the country.ReplyDelete
How do you balance that out? There is so much prediction variation for each individual team, ranking the conferences discreetly is, in effect, impossible. I think CHN would be better served presenting conference tiers. For example, you might have the Pac 10, ACC, and Big East in Tier 1 (and so on). Ranking the conference within these tiers is pointless.
Kurt...I'm not ignoring your SEC comment, I'm just ignoring you in general.ReplyDelete
You comment on every post that does not glorify the SEC in all its greatness, and say that I'm biased, ridiculous, or something else.
Why don't you go put four Mississippi State players on your All-SEC teams? Oh wait, you did.
nice job jeff. i think the acc is going to be a top 3 conference this year. i like the a-10 at 7th (watch out for them).ReplyDelete
Hey, thanks for ranking the MWC 11th! I can agree with that.ReplyDelete
