Thanks to the 18 voters, here are the teams ranked! All in all, 24 teams got votes.
Rather than use the standard linear system, I chose to square the results: ie, (21- rank)^2. Then I normalized the values to 1000.

I also list the AP, Athlon, Lindy's, and SportingNews ranks.

One funny result: for all the knocks that Hatchell takes on this board, the Boneyard was much more bullish on the Heels (#6) compared to the AP (#13) and the magazines (#13, #18, #6). Somewhat similarly for another board "favorite": Frese and the Maryland Terps.
In contrast, the 'Yard was downright down on Stanford (#15) vs AP (#6) and the mags (#6, #4, #4).

(fyi, teams are color-coded based on their conference)

I guess it wouldnt have made a difference in the BY rankings.... but I moved Duke into the top 15 after going to the Blue/White Scrimmage and the Exhibition game. I would have dropped Michigan State out of the 11-15 range.

Will the person(s) who voted Penn State please stand (speak) up :rolleyes:
You do know that there are some teams that would kill for a 2-7 record, don't you?

All joking aside, there are still 20 winless teams and 42 with only 1 win.

Notre Dame will not be at the Final Four. You heard it here first. I think Rutgers and Stanford will be some of the teams most teams will be reluctant to play. Along with So Car, Texas & A & M.
Notre Dame has a lot of solid players. But I am not sure, even with Turner healthy, the rest of their team, other than Lloyd is any more special than many of these other teams. I think they are the best or as well coached and team oriented, out of the rest of the pack--- but I don't think they have the talent, and especially enough veteran talent- just my humble opinion.
