How do rank the conferences? I put together a simple, simple formula to rank the conferences based on AP top 25 rankings only. Here is who the AP is saying the best conferences are when it comes to top 25 teams: 1. SEC 2. Big 10 -2.42 3. Big 12 -3.67 3. WAC -3.67 5. MW -4.33 6. Pac 10 -4.92 7. ACC -9.67 8. Big East -18.67 The negative numbers are how far behind the other conferences are from the SEC based on the points or units I am using. Rep if you can figure out my simple and probably flawed formula.
