2015-16 Conference Previews

This post will contain, below, links to all of my 2015-16 conference previews. It will be pinned to the upper right corner of this page, so it can be easily referenced.

At the time this post initially goes live, most of the conferences below will not be filled in. They'll be posted in order, beginning with the small conferences and ending with the ACC. The last conference preview will be posted no later than April 13th.

Here are a few notes that should hopefully answer all of your questions:


1) I try to do my best to include every important graduation, transfer (in and out), recruit, and otherwise returning player (such as players who missed the season with injury). I will inevitably miss some news, so I welcome the constructive criticism/fact checking. But please keep it constructive.

2) Computer ratings are all through Selection Sunday. They include all conference tournament action, but do not include any postseason tournament action (NCAA, NIT, CBI or CIT).

3) As not all decisions about early entry to the NBA Draft are yet known, I will have to make some guesses about some players. I will note that wherever possible in my previews

4) Leagues are broken down into the six major conferences, the mid-majors and the small conferences. In the past some people have gotten offended by where their favorite league is. But inevitably, I'm going to want to spend more time on the ACC than the SWAC. Sorry.

5) For significant high school recruits, I will include their Scout and/or Rivals ratings wherever possible.


If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. But without further ado, here are my complete 2015-16 conference previews:

The Six Major Conferences is the Football 5 plus the Big East, correct?

That is correct.

Manhattan College lost Ashton Pankey today who chose to take his talents to a professional stage. (Probably wouldn't have been granted a waiver for next season anyway)
