The Terriers are in the top 40, but I look forward to a better 2006. I would have thought the SoCon would have been higher.

Really, if a SOCON team wins the national championship, had three teams in the playoffs, and two teams in the final four- what does it take to be number one?
Someone explain how these ratings are done.

GO TERRIERS!!

The Conference rankings are done by averaging the team numbers in the Conference.

Though the SoCon was #2 it was just a point from #1 with four teams in the top #27, the GFC had five.

Plus, the GFC was in the title game and should have had three in the playoffs too.
