Dude, you could have easily tweaked that weighting to get Kansas to #3.

Best team that has never won it all, Illinois
Best team that has never made a final four, BYU
Best team that has never made the tournament, St. Francis Terriers
Best team that has never been listed on the final AP Poll, Rhode Island
I’m actually kind of surprised Rhode Island has never been ranked in the final AP.

from a bball standpoint, We’re excited to have the 12th best program who actually values bball and arguably the “top new money” program in the country in Houston join the league. While OU and texas are on this list, they value bball as much as baseball. Not much. OU actually did until the Thunder came to OKC.

Oklahoma state I’m surprised wasn’t higher here than 17. Thought maybe 14/15. Ton of tradition going back to the 40’s and 50’s and 60’s with Iba. Then Eddie Sutton for decades and now Boynton doing well.

cincy and okie state actually has legit bball natties while ou and Texas do not.

Pretty interesting stuff. The more discussion there is regarding the top 5 or so, the more I realize I have a very difficult time disagreeing with any of the variations I’ve seen. Such compelling arguments, and slights, can be made for each team and their respective positions.

Rhode Island wasn’t ranked the year they beat the Pierce/Lafrentz team in the tourney?

That’s a good question. I think AP has its last poll come out before the NCAA tournament, but still surprising if they weren’t.

I was thinking that he meant the final poll of the season, but it must be the final regular season poll.

You saw Utah above Michigan and didn’t stop to rethink your weighting?

Even if you didn’t count the runner up and elite 8 years we self vacated it’s not close.

Titles:
Michigan - 1
Utah - 1

Runner up:
Michigan - 4
Utah - 1

Final Four:
Michigan - 6
Utah - 4

Elite 8:
Michigan - 15
Utah - 6

Sweet 16:
Michigan - 17
Utah - 16
