Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

In my weekly Big East Power Rankings last season, I was running out of jokes implying that Stan Heath should be updating his resume and gathering boxes to pack up his office since I was certain he was getting the axe this off-season.  Now I have to load up on new material because somehow Heath kept his job as lead man of the South Florida Bulls.  Heath is far from in the clear though as USF will likely struggle once again in the Big East.
