Low and behold, Big Apple Buckets would like to present their first version of the NEC Power Rankings! With close to one quarter of the season now history, we felt it was a perfect time to reassess the league given the data. Let’s jump right into it.
With six NEC squads in action for the first Wednesday evening of December, John and I decided to recap the games. It’s been a rough start to the season for the conference, but there were several winnable games for the league. Let’s check in to see if they took advantage.
