This is why our CUSA brethren schedule the terrible opponents that they schedule.

Just give it a few weeks. Once conference season starts everyone will marvel at the miraculous improvement of all the CUSA teams...once they start playing each other.

Yep, and when we travel to Rice and North Texas, everyone will be warning about what a tough trip it is going to be.

That is why my optimism is very cautious. Ever since we joined this conference, we always seem to screw it up when we get any momentum. I hope this year is different, but I am guarding against a rollercoaster.

This is pretty typical. Teams lose their OOC schedules, which are weak to begin with, then we beat each other up until our RPI sinks to 22nd in out 32 conferences. Pathetic.

Yup. Might have to do with every team being in their first 5 games and trying to get themselves together. It's a true shame that team sport dynamics can change and performances can get a little better over time.

Or might have to do with the fact that CUSA really does suck, and once conference season starts that is hidden by the fact that there are no crappy teams from other conferences beating us up. When Marshall beats the crap out of the worst teams Texas and Florida have to offer, you all will say, "Look, Marshall sure has gotten better. I don't know why CUSA has these slow starts every year."

And then our lone conference representative in the tournament knocks some really good team off.

Wouldn't it be nice to have multiple teams with the chance to knock off some really good teams?

Yes, we typically do have 1-3 teams that actually ARE pretty good.
