College Basketball Week 8 Ratings and Rankings - Missouri #1

Now that College Football is in to the bowls and there are fewer games to process, I can spend some time getting the College Basketball ratings going.  This week's ratings and rankings are now posted.

With 12 to 13 games played by many teams, there are enough games to get a good idea of where teams rate, and in what is probably a bit of a surprise, Missouri tops the ratings.  They are near the bottom of the top-10 in the polls and my computer's #2 Baylor is also a top-10 team, but the polls top-2 in Syracuse and Ohio State are just my #4 and #3 teams.  But barely more than 0.5 ratings points separates the top-4 so no one has clear separated themselves.

The top-25 is below, the full rankings on the web-site.
