what was the most heartlanders in the top10, top25 at one time?
just curious, i think even the other top conferences would have to acquiese to the heartlanders claim to topconference, and so im just curious as to the milestones they may have set.
al for doing this for all these years,
You're welcome, Dave.
Currently Heartland has 4 teams in the top 17, with Westminster, Franklin, Transylvania, and Manchester.
This is probably the best that any confernence has ever done.
We've never had a #1 team. I believe that Westminster, currently #2, is the best.
Of those 4 teams, this is the highest rating ever for Westminster, Franklin, and Manchester. Transylvania has been as high as #4.
Of our other teams, Hanover
has been as high as #9; Mt. St. Joseph
#19 and Bluffton
#32. That makes 7 of the Heartland teams who've been previously ranked. I doubt that any other conference has more than 4.
