Season Pool Trends:

Conferences:

American

At the top this conference is as predicted, a neck and neck battle between Wichita and Cincinnatti. From the third spot down, there are several teams in the mix and it should be a tight race. Bargain team: Houston

ACC New

Overall the "new" is not nearly as good as the "old". At the moment, Florida State is running away with it. Several teams are in the mix for the next spots. Bargain team: Florida State Bust team so far: Louisville.

ACC Old

A battle between the regular top 3 along with surprise newcomer Clemson. Bargain team: Clemson Bust team: Georgia Tech

A 10

Rhode Island not running away with it as predicted as they are challenged by the Bonnies. After that it is a battle between very mediocre teams.

Big 10

Michigan State, Purdue at top then who knows? Bust team: Northwestern

Big East

MAC

At the moment a tight race at the top between Central Michigan, Ball State and Buffalo. Bargain team: Central Michigan.

MVC

After a slow start, the favorite Missouri State appears to be running away with it. Their is a virtual tie for all of the other spots. Bargain team: Barry's Bradley

Mountain West

Nevada is performing as predicted. San Diego St and Boise are battling for the next two spots. After a great start UNLV has cooled off.

Pac 12

At the moment the Arizona schools are dominating. Wide open after that. Bargain team: Arizona St

SEC

Wide open. The co-favorites Kentucky and Florida have been also rans so far although Florida is moving up fast. Tennessee looked like the surprise team early. Now it appears to be Auburn

CUSA

The three co-favorites are in a battle with everyone else trailing.
