Hard to fathom but the regular season is already a third over for many teams (by Dec 6). Here are some conference rankings based solely on observation and the naked eye. You math guru's can use the formulas.

1 Shippensburg 4-0, 7-0 Fite won a huge game at IUP and hung on after giving up a 19-point lead. Very nice mix of size and guard play. Team is also banged up with a couple players out.
2 IUP 3-1, 8-1 Kutztown was a big win. Lost a late lead against Ship. Fairmont looms Dec 19.
3 Kutztown 3-1, 6-1 Senior-laden team. Has improved since last year's regional final finish.
4 ESU 4-0, 6-3 Odd, slow start. Three straight wins. Lot of talent, speed and rebounding
5 Gannon 3-1, 4-2 Next four games will tell a lot. Schedule to this point has been so-so. Knights have Bowie, ESU, Wheeling and IUP up next. Time to see if contenders or pretenders.
6 West Chester 3-1, 4-4 A 4-4 record with this roster ... something is up. A lot of 'JUCO Stars' were recruited. Meshing issues, perhaps? Likely.
7 SRU 2-2, 5-4 Big win over WCU. In typical Reynolds fashion team is getting better with each game. Tough out by mid-Jan.
8 UPJ 1-3, 5-4 Disappointing start after high expectations ... continuing to drop close games.
9 Mercyhurst 2-2, 4-3 Rebuilding instead of typical reload? Mercy usually starts slow.
10 Seton Hill 2-2, 5-3 Always under the radar
11 Millersville 3-1, 4-3 Winning but winning ugly against some bad teams. Schedule has been favorable.
12 Clarion 2-2, 4-4 Some real close loses. Trip to WL looms.
13 Mansfield 2-2, 4-3 Expected better start after Duquesne win. Trip to IUP up next.
14 Bloomsburg 0-4, 3-4 Bloom is way better than its record and its recent technical foul festival at Gannon. But, the record is the record -- Can't hide from it.
15 Edinboro 0-4, 2-5 Looking like a one-trick-pony team. Shut down the pony, shut down the Scots. Mayson has no help so far.
16 Lock Haven 1-3, 5-3 Fast start against some strange opponents may be a mirage. Poor start in PSAC play.
17 Cal 0-4, 2-7 Vulcans have been competitive most nights -- for a while at least. Roster is pretty thin talent-wise.
18 Cheyney 1-3, 1-7 Didn't shy away from playing a tough schedule. Nice win at Cal this past weekend.
