Per Jeff Sagarin’s Strength of Schedule Rankings, the toughest schedule in CUSA belongs to North Texas:

#93 UNT
#96 UTSA
#103 FIU
#111 MTSU
#119 WKU
#121 Rice
#124 FAU
#125 Marshall
#126 Tech
#127 Charlotte
#129 USM
#133 UTEP
#134 ODU

Really makes the turnaround we have this year standout even more.

I think we are the only team that had to play WKU, LaTech and MTSU… and for the second straight year.

I predicted NT to get 7 wins because I thought the schedule was relatively weak. UTEP and Southern Miss disappointed this season, but Charlotte and ODU were better. Still, the conference is the same top-heavy group we thought they would be. NT got a bit unlucky by playing WKU, Southern Miss, and MTSU again and this is really the reason we have the toughest schedule.

I think this tells you that CUSA is a winnable league, and turnarounds like ours (and UTSA’s, Charlotte’s, and ODU’s) are very possible. If next year’s NT team is a mere 20% better offensively, maybe they easily get to five wins?
