Looking Ahead to UNT’s Basketball Conference Schedule

  North Texas has one game left on its non conference slate and that is tonight vs. Texas Tech. After that it’s on to conference play. Honestly the conference schedule looks pretty damn scary. I had this team winning 16 games during the regular season. That would mean that they need to win 10 in… Read more »

Conference USA. Where to go from here.

In an earlier post about 2/3rds into the season I had looked at how C-USAs new members (UNT, UTSA, La Tech, FIU, FAU, MTSU), those that will remain (UAB, S Miss, UTEP, Marshall, Rice) and the “quitters” (Tulsa, Tulane, ECU) fared compared to the other groups. For completeness, I have updated those numbers. Newbies overall:… Read more »

CUSA Power Rankings 10.3.13

Between the bye-weeks and the terrible non-conference losses there wasn’t much change in the power poll. I don’t like moving a team up or down if they didn’t play but MTSU played so poorly that their drop forced up Marshall and Rice. I kind of want to drop them further but UNT didn’t play, Tulsa… Read more »

CUSA Power Rankings Week 5

Here is the list I sent over to Miner Rush for this week’s CUSA Power Rankings. I figured that since everyone is doing it, I’d do it too. ECU – Also lost to Va Tech but at home. Here based on potential rather than resume this year. MTSU – Got a conference win away. MTSU… Read more »

It’s Official

We are officially [going to be] CUSA members. Also, official? The new configuration will only have 13 members. ODU is still unsure if they want to absorb  the new costs that will come with joining a new, more powerful conference. With the payouts from CUSA at around $2-3 million, and new television negotiations looking to… Read more »

CUSA To Have 14 Members in 2013 *UPDATE*

This post was obviously oudated as soon as Tulane and ECU decided to bold to the Big East. Whereas CUSA will have them as members briefly, the future of the conference is as Sun Belt 2.0.    This report by CBSSports is making the rounds. No doubt you’ve heard all that there is to hear…. Read more »
