RE: Rice vs Marshall best for CUSA
C-USA West Scenarios:

Rice needs: Win
UTSA needs: Win + Tulane win
Tulane needs: Win + UTSA loss

The UTSA game kicks off 30 mins. after the Tulane game. Tulane will not know if they are drawing dead until after the game. UTSA will know if they are drawing dead by early in the 4th quarter of their game (barring OT in the Tulane-Rice game).

In a matter of 40 minutes, the West division title will be decided. Wonderful.

Yes.

A Tulane win + UTSA loss + NT win eliminates them by virtue of their head-to-head loss against Tulane earlier this season.

A Rice win + UTSA win OR loss + NT win eliminates them by virtue of a 7-1 conference record - the best NT can do is finish 6-2 in the conference play.

A Tulane win + UTSA win + NT win forces a 4-way tie, and eliminates them due to common game tiebreakers. Tulane would be 2-1 against the other three, UTSA would be 2-1 against the other three, Rice would 1-2 against the other three, and NT would be 1-2 against the other three. Rice and NT would be eliminated in that tiebreaker. UTSA would then eliminate Tulane by virtue of a 10-7 home win against Tulane earlier this month.

One last point: UTSA needs Tulane to beat Rice... ...so that they can eliminate Tulane themselves. UTSA knows that Rice cannot be the team that kills off Tulane... ...UTSA must be that team or they are drawing dead. :)

However, Rice is not purple. Rice is "a blue still deeper than the Oxford blue..."

What's best for the conference is that the two teams who have the best record on the field play for the title. Period. It shouldn't matter if they are first year or last year in the conference. To exclude those two groups sounds like some left-winged socialized redistribution of wins model. I think we all wore a CUSA patch on our jersey this year. Besides, if the conference is going to share revenue with other schools that my school helped produce for this conference then you're dang skippy I have a right to participate in the conference title chase.
