Top College Basketball Programs Over the Last 10 Years (Updated)

4/03/2007
First of all, congratulations to the Florida Gators on defending their title. Despite hearing Billy Packer go on and on about how tired the Buckeyes were (starting about 3 minutes into the game and lasting until the final buzzer), I think it just boils down the fact that the Gators were simply the better team. Why can't we just leave it at that? Although the game wasn't very compelling, I was glad to see (as were many NBA scouts) Greg Oden show that he does in fact have a pulse. Too bad the his teammates were throwing up bricks.

With the 2006-07 season in the books, I've updated my rankings of the top programs over the last 10 years using the Colton Index. Here are the results with the 2006-07 season included.  The NCAA tourney results are double-weighted.

Interestingly, most of the top teams from the previous list had down years in 2006-07.  Of the teams previously in the top 20, only Florida, Wisconsin and UCLA performed better in 2006-07 than their previous 10-year level (North Carolina and Kansas came close).  Other teams moved up because their 06-07 season was better than the 96-97 season that was being cycled out (see Michigan State, Gonzaga).
