Week 13 Conference Rankings 2012

26 Nov

The SEC beat up on the ACC this week, which means they draw closer to the Big 12, while the ACC falls dangerously close to being overtaken by a non-BCS conference.  At this point in the season, no BCS conference has ever had so few points as the ACC.  They raided the Big East, and yet they can’t out perform that crumbling conference.  Now it appears that Maryland will be leaving for the Big 10.  If I was the ACC, I think I’d be asking Swafford some questions.  They raided the Big East for money, but now they can’t even hang on to their own teams.

Speaking of the Big East, Rutgers will be following Maryland to the Big 10.  Most likely UConn will fall to the ACC, which will pretty much destroy what was once a very good conference.  Perception, created by the media, was that the Big East was weak, but they have been one of the stronger conferences over the years.  Now, however, the ACC pretty much destroyed them, but watch their teams as they enter their new leagues.  I think you’ll find they represent well.

Week 12 Conference Rankings 2012

20 Nov

Besides the SEC, not many out-of-conference games were played this week.  The SEC played 8 teams from outside the conference, but only one of those teams was FBS level, and they lost to that one Big East team.  So even though they went 7-1, they lost points in the system because the 7 wins were against FCS schools.  The maligned Big East picked up that win against the SEC, so that helped, even though they also lost against an ACC school.  Still, not enough out-of-conference games were played to affect the rankings in any signficant way.  Bowl season will change all that.

2012 Conference Rankings Week 11

11 Nov

I was rooting for Louisiana-Lafayette Saturday because I was hoping to see the Sun Belt get a big win, as the defeat of Florida from the SEC would have been.  However, it was not to be and the SEC continues their steady march toward the top ranking.  They still have a way to go to catch the Big 12 and we’ll probably have to wait for Bowl Season before we see any kind of major shake-up.

2012 Conference Rankings Week 10

5 Nov

The SEC continues to close in on the Big 12 for the number one ranking.  They have done so by winning against non-BCS teams, but win they do.  This past week they had two wins much closer than expected, however, the closeness of a win doesn’t factor into how these rankings are complied.  An overtime win, or loss, doesn’t factor into these rankings either.  All we count here is wins and losses.  Now onto the rankings.

2012 Conference Rankings Week 9

3 Nov

Week 9 showed a switch in positions between the MAC and WAC.  The Big East continues to fall, but the ACC is leading the way in the fall so they remain the worst of the BCS conferences.  The SEC continues slowly closing the gap with the Big 12, but there’s still a way to go so the Big 12 remains firmly the best conference in college football.

2012 Conference Rankings Week 7

3 Nov

Have you ever been so busy making a living that those tasks that aren’t as important get put aside as you concentrate on area that matter the most?  Well, that’s what happened to me the last few weeks.  However, I make a promise it won’t happen after I update weeks 7, 8 and 9.  Starting with week 10, I will update this from now on by no later than Monday, provided I have power.

At this point in the season, there’s not a lot of out of conference games being played, so there was no major movement as we move toward bowl season.  The two conferences making the most of this time has been the SEC and the MAC.
