With conference play getting into full swing, what better time to rank each of the big six conferences from top to bottom?

This is my perception of who is better in each conference as we move into 2011. This list has nothing to do with records, since records are deceiving. Road games and back-loaded schedules can deceive even Joe Lunardi, so don't let your view get skewed. It is my intent to update the list every week with less detail on this blog. For now though, let the debates begin.

1: ACC

Duke It will be difficult to tell how good they are until the trip to Tallahassee. Even then, the ACC is dreadful at the bottom.
