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.

UTEP Basketball Dismisses Three

Betting on sports is not okay if you are college athlete. At least they weren’t point-shaving. To this point, there is no evidence to support the recent rumors of point shaving, nor is it believed that these players were betting on any UTEP games. No further information was available on what types of bets were…

Quick Reaction: North Texas 41 UTEP 7

// Pic via @DentonPD My tailgate was cursed from the moment I realized I left my wallet back in San Antonio. I still had a good time, but it wasn’t nearly as awesome as it could be. I’m glad I didn’t spread my curse to the game, however. The Mean Green completely dominated on defense…

CUSA Power Rankings 10.11.13

ECU – Had a scare vs MTSU but shook it off and kept rolling Marshall – Really impressive vs UTSA. Rice – Took on preseason fave Tulsa and won in OT in Oklahoma, ya’ll. Looking formidable. Tulane – Didn’t look impressive in the win against UNT. Still, there is something to be said for winning,…

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…

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…
