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.

I agree that UTEP is likely the next up for C-USA. Whether they deserve to be listed this low will be determined over the course of the season. I'm hoping for, not expecting, improvement over last season.

I am surprised we have not already seen Rice. David Bailiff seems to be coaching in what could be a lame duck year under close scrutiny by the athletic director. Even with the new coaches beneath him, that doesn't look like a good situation for the program.

Yeah, it seems like you guys have just run into a real slump. Who looks to replace Aaron Jones? Seems like some pretty big shoes to fill.

but they are so supposed to be P6! 03-lmfao03-lmfao03-lmfao

This was fully expected. Honestly I expected UConn lower (worse ranked). Where it will be interesting is where Tulane, SMU, and ECU are ranked. The former 2 are projected to turn the corner, while ECU... who knows. I think If Murschel shies away from name recognition he'll place ECU before SMU / Tulane. If not, we'll see Tulane next.

Either way, the AAC shouldn't be seen again for at least two weeks.

At the beginning of spring practice the likely replacement for Jones was Wadley who played some last year as a true freshman. He was injured this spring and looks to be out for the year. The RBs include Awatt, gray shirt last year, Dawn, wr last year, Dove, big back who played some last year as a freshman, Powell who took a medical redshirt last year but played well the year before, and Fields, an El Paso product, true freshman this coming season and a 1st team all state player. Lots of expectations for him to be the next Jones. UTEP needs to supplement the run game with a decent passing threat or they will never win on a regular basis. They are basically telling opponents what they're going to do so the box gets loaded up.
