RANKING THE CONFERENCES


I believe we have enough information to make an informed and educated ranking of the BCS conferences using a combination of Sagarin ratings and Phil Steele Power Ratings.....This will hurt a lot of you who think your conference is still what it was ten years ago....They say things go in cycles,but without doubt...these are pretty spot on. I welcome your comments....

SEC     11/1495       11= 2,1,3,1,1,2,1
Pac 10  14/1464       14= 3,2,1,2,2,1,3
ACC     19/1458       19= 3,4,1,3,4,2,2
Big 12  22/1456       22= 1,3,4,3,3,4,4
Big 10  38/1391       38= 5,6,5,5,6,6,5
Big East 39/1391      39= 6,5,6,6,5,5,6

As you can see,quite a margin between #4 and #5 and Big 10 and Big East are basically the same. I used top 7 teams in each conference and the first number represents ranking vs other conf for that slot (1 for highest rated 1st place team,3 for third rated team across the six leagues.) SEC came in at 2,1,3,1,1,2,1 meaning their third best team was also third when compared to all the other leagues 3rd best team.

Larger number is total of the seven teams Sagarin Rating + Power Rating.

FYI - Notre Dame would be 5th best team in Big East and Big 10 and 7th best team in Big 12 and Pac 10.
