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.

Winning nine games in the Big East is reason to celebrate when you had only won 11 games in the previous four seasons combined since arriving in the conference.  Still, USF fell short of making the NCAA Tournament and lost their best player to the NBA.

The Sports Bank’s 99 team college basketball preview in 99 days continues with South Florida.  In case you have been drunker than Ronnie from Jersey Shore the past two weeks and missed it, I am ranking the 72 power conference teams and top 27 mid-majors leading right up to the opening tip of the college hoops season.  Click here if you missed teams #88-#99.
