 Powerhouse basketball conferences traditionally haven't been in the Rocky Mountains, but the Mountain West league seems bent on changing that.

The Mountain West will have a couple of teams to watch in the dance come March... These days, I'd say that there isn't a great disparity among the top 8 or 10 conferences in their top teams - the Big Ten is much deeper than most with talent and coaching, and that makes the overall conference stronger than most, but are the top 2-3 in the Big Ten that much better than the top 2-3 of most major and mid major conferences? In the past 5-10 years, parity has crept in, in large part because of more technical info available to coaches for their understanding and in part because of more basic schemes in use that fit more types of player strengths and weaknesses...

@AR I like the big ten power rankings. I hope you do this list each week. It will be fun to see how that list changes from now, early Jan. to mid March. Gophers need to pound down on NW this week then go to IL and Indy and steal 1 road game to sit at 3-1 after four games. Love to see us beat IL on the road after so much trouble in Champaigne over the yrs. go big gophers.

Tim Miles is an outstanding recruiter and coach. His team won't be on the bottom for long! With everything he has going for him in Lincoln, look out for Nebraska.

Iowa ahead of Illinois? I don't think so. Apart from Illinois being a top 15 team and having a better record, they just reasserted themselves by putting a beating on Ohio State. Who has Iowa beaten this year?
