Links to articles? Running average? Total number of teams from each conference represented?

Good comment, but I am holding off on the running averages until all the G-5 conferences have at least one team. If the running start by C-USA, MAC, Sun-Belt and MT West keeps up, that may be a while. I suspect it may be two weeks or so before we see ECU or Tulane.

Sun Belt - 3 Texas State (129), NM State (127), GA State (124)
MAC - 2 Buffalo (128), Kent State (122)
C-USA - 2 UAB (130), Charlotte (126)
MT West - 1 Fresno State (123)
Independent - 1 UMASS (125)

By the way, Coastal Carolina should pop into this year's list. I suspect they may well be next.

RE: Orlando Sentinel Countdown
Not saying whether or not Charlotte will finish that low. However, even in a year after we lost so many seniors, that low of a finish would not be well received. I do not think any of our fans are expecting that. They are probably expecting something close to a repeat of last season (inexperienced FBS recruits replacing experienced FCS recruits). The main issue will be the D Line, I think. That will determine how high they rise or how low they fall.

Charlotte could win one game or seven. We still have several FCS players on the roster, but we are deeper than we've ever been (which cost us at least one game, maybe two).
I really have no idea. I'm happy with three wins.
Next season, the training wheels are off.

RE: Orlando Sentinel Countdown
Ok, here's the first effort at the projected rankings for the G5 and independents. Keep in mind two things. One, it's early, and I may have inadvertantly erred in the start up of my spreadsheet. Two, it's early, and there is really not enough data for the projections to be accurate, other than the relative positions. Anyway, here goes.

AAC 15.13
MWC 15.29
C-USA 23.86
MAC 25.42
IND 32.75
SBC 35.42

AS OF:4/26/17

Includes UCONN at 121

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/co...-rankings/

121. UCONN
122. Kent State
123. Fresno State
124. GA State
125. UMASS
126. Charlotte
127. New Mexico State
128. Buffalo
129. Texas State
130. UAB

Sun Belt - 3 Texas State (129), NM State (127), GA State (124)
MAC - 2 Buffalo (128), Kent State (122)
C-USA - 2 UAB (130), Charlotte (126)
MT West - 1 Fresno State (123)
AAC - 1 UCONN (121)
Independent - 1 UMASS (125)

YEEHAW!

Sure why not.

2016 ranking:

31 WKU (11-3)
55 S Miss (7-6)
57 Marshall (3-9)
63 MTSU (8-5)
66 LT (9-5)
87 FAU (3-9)
95 ODU (10-3)
99 UTSA (6-7)
105 UTEP (4-8)
108 Rice (3-9)
112 FIU (4-8)
115 Char (4-8)
127 UNT (5-8)

Man, everybody missed on Marshall pretty bad.

Consdiering that was the worst Marshall football team I have seen since the 80's, I agree.
We won't be a surprise this year. I don't expect much improvement. Only hope.

The P5 breaks into the list as Illinois is in at 120. The projected G5 average rankings remain unchanged.

AAC 15.13
MWC 15.29
C-USA 23.86
MAC 25.42
IND 32.75
SBC 35.42

AS OF:4/27/17

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/co...-rankings/

120. Illinois
121. UCONN
122. Kent State
123. Fresno State
124. GA State
125. UMASS
126. Charlotte
127. New Mexico State
128. Buffalo
129. Texas State
130. UAB

Sun Belt - 3 Texas State (129), NM State (127), GA State (124)
MAC - 2 Buffalo (128), Kent State (122)
C-USA - 2 UAB (130), Charlotte (126)
MT West - 1 Fresno State (123)
AAC - 1 UCONN (121)
Independent - 1 UMASS (125)

Who do you think is next for C-USA? I'm thinking either Rice or UTEP. I'm leaning toward UTEP. Unfortunately, I think we will see one of those two somewhere in the next five up.
