Conference Strength

Please keep in mind the following was sent to me via email, but it will be useful for future rants-

This covers the past 15 years. The year listed next to the school is the last year that school finished in the top ten. An ()* means that team finished in the top five during that time span with the year they last finished in the top five in parentheses.

USC 2004 (2004)*
Cal 2004
Washington St. 2003
Oregon 2001 (2001)*
Oregon St. 2000 (2000)*
Washington 2000 (2000)*
Arizona 1998 (1998)*
UCLA 1998 (1997)*
Arizona St. 1996 (1996)*
Stanford 1992

Ten out of ten teams (100%) finished in the top ten, with seven of those teams finishing in the top five (70%).

Big Ten
Iowa 2004
Ohio St. 2003 (2003)*
Michigan 2003 (1999)*
Wisconsin 1999 (1999)*
Michigan St. 1999
Penn St. 1996 (1994)*
Northwestern 1995

Seven out of 11 teams (63.6%) finished in the top ten with four finishing in the top five (36.4%).

Auburn 2004 (2004)*
Georgia 2004 (2002)*
LSU 2003 (2003)*
Florida 2001 (2001)*
Tennessee 2001 (2001)*
Alabama 1999 (1994)*

Six out of 12 teams (50%) finished in the top ten, all six finished in the top five (50%).

Oklahoma 2004 (2004)*
Texas 2004 (2004)*
Kansas St. 2002
Nebraska 2001 (1999)*
Colorado 2001 (1995)*
Kansas 1995
Texas A&M 1994

Seven out of 12 teams (58.3%) made it to the top ten, and four teams finished in the top five (33%).

I won't bother with the ACC or the Big East, since neither of those conferences had any teams that were good other than Miami, Florida St. and Virginia Tech.
