What I first notice is they are no Big Ten or Southeastern Conference teams in my Top 15 in the nation and only one Big Twelve team in the Top 15. These are three conferences that you always expect to compete for a national title. I feel like it's a down year for all three. Despite two early ACC losses, I still feel like North Carolina is one of the best teams in the nation and have them sitting at #2. Big Ten wound up with two teams in the Top 25 in my rankings while the SEC has only one team in my Top 25 rankings. The AP TOP 25 has four Big Ten teams, one SEC team and three Big Twelve teams ranked in Top 25. We're in for an interesting run as we get into the heavy conference play schedule. Rocketman was 72-36 67% last year in College Basketball which was good enough for a documented #1 finish in the nation! Rocketman is currently on a 30-19 61% run this season.
