A deeper look at conference rankings

Paul Myerberg of Pre-Snap Read has his own ranking, and ranks the conferences based on that ranking after the conclusion of every week's games. This week, he went a little deeper into his conference rankings, evaluating the divisions in the bigger conferences, and also the top and bottom of the conferences. The MWC, as a whole, is the top mid-major conference, after the PAC-12 and independents. But, when split into the top and bottom half, a different picture emerges. The top half of the MWC isn't that far off from BCS conferences. The bottom half is among the worst in the country. But we all knew that. (And this is why the MWC would have trouble getting that AQ spot.) Ranking the top half of the conferences 1. Big 12 (12.2) 2. SEC (13.7) 3. Big Ten (16.8) 4. Pac-12 (22.8) 5. A.C.C. (25.3) 6. Mountain West (34.0) 7. Big East (37.8) 8. Conference USA (44.7) 9. MAC (58.8) 10. Sun Belt (72.8) 11. WAC (73.3) Ranking the bottom half: 1. Big 12 (52.7) 2. Big Ten (55.8) 3. SEC (65.7) 4. Big East (68.3) 5. A.C.C. (71.3) 6. Pac-12 (86.3) 7. MAC (98.4) 8. WAC (100.3) 9. Conference USA (101.0) 10. Mountain West (102.3) 11. Sun Belt (103.8)
