Andy Glockner has his conference rankings posted for the 2012-13 season and they contain some relative surprises.
The Mountain West Conference owns the #7 spot, one slot ahead of the Pac-12 and followed by the West Coast Conference.The Pac-12 should always be in the top five considering the geographical and money advantages over most competitors.
The Western Athletic Conference is at #16 and, very surprisingly, the Big West Conference is #24 out of 32 leagues. One would think the Big West would be placed higher but Long Beach State and UC Santa Barbara have lost a lot of talent and the other members have yet to step up their programs. Getting San Diego State next season will obviously help
