For Athlon Sports, any offseason is one of our favorite times of the year.
Of course, we enjoy the season and March Madness as much as any college basketball fan, but the bread-and-butter for Athlon since 1967 has been helping readers prepare for the season, helping them get to know the teams and players they need to watch.
This is the time of year we get to share our preseason college basketball annuals. Countless hours of study and work from dozens of individuals went into the 2014-15 edition, and we still have room for debate on the outlook for every team.
Of course, Athlon isn’t the only publication out there. And just like anyone we like to compare how everyone evaluates the season ahead. Here’s how the top 25 and conference champions shook out in the various publications.
We’ll continue to update the grid as more rankings are released through the offseason.
