Conference Toughness Ratings 2000-2018
For the sake of simplicity, these ratings are based on the conferences as they stand today. A team's wins
and losses, therefore, are entered into its current conference, not the conference in which it may have won
or lost a particular game. That's why a brand new conference like Dukane already has a high rating -- its
rating is based on performance of its member teams over the past 19 seasons.

An average rating for any conference is 500.
