Year End Rankings

I'm not really into ranking teams that much (because match-ups depend on many more factors), but I came up with a new (and I think better) rating system today and here's how it ranks the Top Twenty:

RankTeamRating
1North Carolina131.6
2Kansas129.6
3Michigan State126.9
4West Virginia125.3
5Virginia117.9
6Villanova114.9
7Oregon112.1
8Xavier110.4
9Purdue109.3
10Louisville108.9
11Arizona106.1
12Duke105.4
13Kentucky105.2
14SMU104.0
15Indiana103.9
16Oklahoma103.7
17Miami Florida99.9
18Maryland97.9
19Baylor97.7
20Wichita State97.4

I'm not entirely sure what I think of this.  The top of the rankings isn't too surprising, although I think most folks wouldn't have UNC ahead of Kansas and MSU.  Oklahoma is much lower than the #2 seed they received.  Wichita State is also a surprise at 20 -- although they seem to be handling Vanderbilt tonight so maybe there's something to that.

And I guess you could conclude that it's a bad year for Louisville and SMU to be on probation -- they were both very solid this year.
