The way I counted it, there was only one A10 team on the list and none from the CAA. How is that possible when they are so superior to CUSA?

So it is his top 68 teams.

With the normal bias from Bilas there are likely 60 teams from the P5 in his top 68. That puts us at #8 non P5. Pretty good!

Not really that far off the actual count!

If the bottom 4 basketball schools were dropped, the conference ratings would skyrocket. The issue isnt the top

Two: Rhode Island and St. Bonaventure. The A10 in fairness is usually further ahead than CUSA, but this isn't their best season with Dayton and VCU down and nobody really emerging as a consistent top program (and Rhody/Bona aren't exactly paragons of stability themselves).

Looks like W&M may well be the top CAA team this year, and they had to pull a shot out of their anal cavity to beat us on their home floor. We may well be the 4th best team in CUSA. Maybe better. We'll find out for sure this weekend.

The bottom teams in CUSA don't care about basketball. It is what it is, but we can overcome that.

Dont think the Tribe are beat CAA team but a strong argument could be made that there are at least 4 teams in the CUSA better than the best CAA team.

Not sure that applies this year. UTEP, Rice and Charlotte all invest in the sport.

True (though not sure about Rice. How much do they invest?). I was thinking more along the lines of the FUs etc.
