MyBB KenPom.com Update
With UTSA losing to Sun Belt member Coastal Carolina today, 83-69, I thought I would update C-USA’s Pomeroy rankings. The conference is still ranked 20th, and we did have two wins today: ODU beat Indiana State and Rice beat Northwestern State.

Elon beat FIU, and South Carolina beat UTEP.

Conferences of Note:
1. Big 12
2. SEC
3. Big East

7. AAC

14. Sun Belt
16. Southern
20. C-USA

32. SWAC

C-USA Teams

87. ODU
100. MT
110. La Tech
117. UAB

175. UTEP
197. Marshall
203. Charlotte
225. WKU

274. FAU
280. UTSA
285. Rice
286. USM
299. NT
323. FIU

C-USA has six teams rated lower than 250. The Sun Belt has two.

I really appreciate your kenpom updates. I don't think UTEP or WKU are as bad as their numbers suggest. And I think UAB should be around 85. But, it has to be earned. Not given. Not going to earn it playing teams like our first 4. (Although we didn't know Chatt & Richmond would be so bad)

CUSA can & should take action to have the top 6-7 teams play each other 4 times a year (regular season). And ditto for the bottom 4-6 teams.

That would cause a lot of whining by the lesser and middling teams. All the more reason to avoid being a lesser team.

And the tournament seeding would have to be adjusted too. Perhaps by taking RPI into account. It CAN be done but they have to take action to reward teams that win and play harder schedules. They could even use non public coaches polls to help pick the top teams.
And penalize any coach suspected or trying to game the polls.

I don't understand why our league doesn't do something to try and move the conference up.

I mean, a CUSA vs. Sun Belt week right now would guarantee that we would have some better RPI games than we're currently getting. It's going to take a collective effort from all the schools to develop our reputation.
