    On one hand you have in the ACC :

    Florida State
    Virginia Tech
    North Carolina

    Those are the teams in the top 25 right now. And it wouldn't surprise me to see NC State, Louisville and maybe even Boston College in that mix or close to, by season's end.

    On the other in the Big Ten Conference you have:

    Ohio State
    Michigan State

    Maybe Minnesota and Maryland can join the top ranks too.

    These 2 conferences have the most top ranked teams in the country and it will likely stay that way through March 2019 and likely even into 2020+. This 2 conferences seem the most stacked with talented programs for years to come really, outside of the SEC which is a close 3rd in my opinion. And every single other conference is wayyy behind.

    Curious, which do you think is the best conference in the NCAA? For my money its the ACC. It wouldn't surprise me to see a few #1s once again come from the ACC and a few more champs for the next 3-5 years. The Big Ten has the quantity of talent, but I think the ACC has the most consistent quality of talent.

    We can look back on this thread in a few years and see who know what. :) If you disagree that is..

    Easily ACC. Just look at the trophy count. ACC has produced national champs 5 of the last 10 years. 'Nough said.

    Though Big Ten feels up and coming. They always represent in the tournament, just can't seem to finish on top. Also think about the Big East. They maybe aren't great this year but Villanova won it all 2 of the last 3 years. And Xavier, Butler, Marquette, Georgetown etc have a long recent history of making waves in March too.

    Hard to argue against the ACC. 4 teams in the top 10 right now. I'll throw in the SEC for a #2 contender for this year onward. Look for Tennessee and Kentucky to make some noise.
