Let's take a look at how my Top 25 CBB rankings compare to those of the AP and the USA Today rankings. We'll give you some insight down below on who we think will be moving up the ladder and who we think will be moving down. I'm currently 43-27 61.4% this year in College Basketball after finishing 72-36 67% and documented #1 last year in College Basketball action.

First off, I think the ACC, with Duke and North Carolina, have the best chance of winning it all this year. This is going to be an incredible March Madness! I feel like the Big East, however, has the best overall conference. I would not be surprised if 10 teams got in from the Big East, but most likely 8 or 9. I agree with both the AP and USA today on Duke being the #1 team in the nation right now. I'm a big Tar Heel fan though and I think they will win it all in the end. AP has 7 Big East teams in their Top 25 while the USA Today has 8. I've only got 6 Big East teams in my Top 25 but look for Georgetown, Notre Dame and Syracuse to do well down the stretch and possibly make an entry in my Top 25. Big 10, Big 12 and SEC are definitely weak this year. Check back next week as we compare our Top 25 to the AP and USA today once again. Be sure to join us daily for our winning premium CBB picks!
