RE: Will USM ever leave CUSA?
WKU talking attendance smack with ANYONE is hilarious.....

Man...2 purty good years and they are experts at EVERYTHING!

When the 7-5, 5-7 years begin at WKU, don't expect 12,000 a game any more, it will be down to 5,000.04-cheers

those AAC schools left you in this conference for a reason


But for S.Miss and not playing those old school teams hurting attendance lets get back to the real world instead of making **** up just because it makes you feel better.

Last two years that S. Miss actually played winning football

2016 -avg attendance 28,587
2015 -avg attendance 28,334

From 2000-2012 season avg attendance 28,218

Living in fantasy land only works for idiots and they usually seek help at some point (not anyone on this board...just the way it is)

You may be missing the point. Your numbers are tickets sold, not people in the stadium. More people would actually come to the game to see Houston than Charlotte. And... who wouldn't?

So...when did Tulane, ECU, UCF, S Florida, SMU, Memphis or Temple ever win sh!t (against "newbies" or "oldies") before they were invited to AAC? If you don't think a Houston, UCF or Memphis is better off in the AAC than Crap-USA, then you've been drinking more than just Kool-Aid.

Now...do I think AAC is any better than C-USA? Not really...BUT perception says it is and perception always gets ya on ESPN! 04-cheers

500% better in basketball!

no

We probably send more fans to UTEP than East division fans come here.

Those teams fans don't even come to see their home team play, why would they travel to Marshall? and I know the ODU people are going to say they sell-out every game, but I went to last years USM game there and that small stadium wasn't full.

We can make up #s with the best of them. But for those of us who actually went to the games, attendance has dropped dramatically, giving is down, and apathy is at an all time high.

no

We probably send more fans to UTEP than East division fans come here.

Western had at least 600 and probably closer to 700 fans on a cold snowy game played the day after thanksgiving the first game we played. Last year maybe 300 on Thanksgiving weekend..with a game everyone knew was over before kickoff.

Marshall had maybe 1200 at Western year before last with the conference championship on the line.

As for the S. Miss who asked this question...S. Miss had a 150-200 at Tech this year on warm night...about a 3 hour drive

In one of our most apathetic years I can remember, we brought over 500 to La Tech. And as a WKU fan, attendance smack is the worst route you could take. 13k for a championship game. Pathetic.


If you call this 500 you are blind....200 would be pushing it.

As empty as that stadium was, they probably moved to row 3 on the 50.

WKU should worry about their own football team right now, not USM's....They entered a watered down C-USA with a coach out-of-their-league-but-down-on-his-luck and thought it would ALWAYS BE EASY.

But it's not...

No, saying for all years it was tickets sold, but more butts are in the seats for a Houston team than Charlotte (sorry to pick on my Charlotte buds).

From a football perspective, this is absolutely absurd even for the biggest CUSA fan. It’s mid-November and they have 3 ranked teams (UCF, USF & Memphis), all of which will end up with 10 win regular season records and any of would win our conference hands down. After that, then they have 3 other teams (Houston, Navy & SMU) that would likely win CUSA this season.


I disagree completely. UCF's biggest non-conference win was over a Maryland team that is going to finish 4-8. USF's biggest non-conference win was over an Illinois team that is going to finish 2-10 and UM's biggest win is over a UCLA team that could finish 4-8. It is just the way things fell this year. Our conference is top to bottom much better this year. We should take note of what the AAC is doing and schedule lower tier non-conference teams.

i dont care about the the conference realignment argument, i believe you have to make the best of your situation..

but i just want to point out how the highlighted debate would work anywhere but the c-usa forum...literally anywhere else...the reason people are mocking usf and ucf schedule is because the best teams in c-usa doesn't get respect from the national media

--navy blew out fau..the favorite to win all of c-usa (navy is likely to finish 5-7th in the AAC)
--ucf blew out fiu. the #2 favorite to win c-usa

--smu blew out unt, who will win c-usa west (smu will finish 5-7th in the AAC)
--UM's biggest win is navy or houston, not ucla
--Houston already beat 6-3 Arizona that has a Heisman candidate

"Our conference is top to bottom much better this year" ???
--the AAC's worst team, ECU, beat byu (who beat middling mwc teams)....Arguably second to worst team, tulane, has a win over a 8 win army

are you basing your argument on bowl eligibility?..parity to get more bowl teams doesnt mean better ..the pac 12 will have the most bowl teams this year, but is considered the worst p5 this year....their bowl teams doesnt mean they are better than the SEC or that they are top to bottom better

ive seem a few posts in this forum that this year the AAC isnt better, its just perceptions. but we at the aac are the delusional ones?

I don't buy that. FIU and FAU had new coaches playing in their only first games under the new regimes.

Today FAU blows out Navy, and, at the very least, FIU should have a closer game against UCF

I have to agree with the soccer fan. FAU plays Navy now, FAU wins by 20+.

why? because fau/fiu started winning c-usa games??

that navy game wasnt even close

if it was just fiu and fau i might buy that....but its not...unt, uab...all looked bad in ooc but all magically figure it out in conference play..all your top teams!!

uab is returning from a self imposed death penalty and is projected to win 8 games ..on its first year!...that shouldnt be happening at any truly competitive league

we had this debate with some fau fans in the AAC forum... i get that as a fau fan you want to believe you just got THAT MUCH BETTER!!!!
but any logical person not biased can see the level of play in the c-usa this year is very low...allowing the better of all those bad teams to look better than they should

you arent blowing out navy, thats a fact..ucf and memphis barely beat navy but fau is winning 20+ ridiculous

There is no comparison guys. AAC is head and shoulders above us. Sucks to admit it, but its true.

Other than the ODU grads, like my wife and I, that left Virginia I doubt a large number of ODU fans will ever make the trip to Huntington. It's over 450 miles to get to Marshall from ODU. For comparison, New York City is almost 100 miles closer.

AAC will have to wait in line. ACC is making moves to add Charlotte.

It’s mid-November and they have 3 ranked teams (UCF, USF & Memphis), all of which will end up with 10 win regular season records and any of would win our conference hands down. After that, then they have 3 other teams (Houston, Navy & SMU) that would likely win CUSA this season.


I disagree completely. UCF's biggest non-conference win was over a Maryland team that is going to finish 4-8. USF's biggest non-conference win was over an Illinois team that is going to finish 2-10 and UM's biggest win is over a UCLA team that could finish 4-8. It is just the way things fell this year. Our conference is top to bottom much better this year. We should take note of what the AAC is doing and schedule lower tier non-conference teams.

i dont care about the the conference realignment argument, i believe you have to make the best of your situation..

but i just want to point out how the highlighted debate would work anywhere but the c-usa forum...literally anywhere else...the reason people are mocking usf and ucf schedule is because the best teams in c-usa doesn't get respect from the national media

--navy blew out fau..the favorite to win all of c-usa (navy is likely to finish 5-7th in the AAC)
--ucf blew out fiu. the #2 favorite to win c-usa

--smu blew out unt, who will win c-usa west (smu will finish 5-7th in the AAC)
--UM's biggest win is navy or houston, not ucla
--Houston already beat 6-3 Arizona that has a Heisman candidate

"Our conference is top to bottom much better this year" ???
--the AAC's worst team, ECU, beat byu (who beat middling mwc teams)....Arguably second to worst team, tulane, has a win over a 8 win army

are you basing your argument on bowl eligibility?..parity to get more bowl teams doesnt mean better ..the pac 12 will have the most bowl teams this year, but is considered the worst p5 this year....their bowl teams doesnt mean they are better than the SEC or that they are top to bottom better

ive seem a few posts in this forum that this year the AAC isnt better, its just perceptions. but we at the aac are the delusional ones?

I don't buy that. FIU and FAU had new coaches playing in their only first games under the new regimes.

Today FAU blows out Navy, and, at the very least, FIU should have a closer game against UCF

why? because fau/fiu started winning c-usa games??

that navy game wasnt even close

if it was just fiu and fau i might buy that....but its not...unt, uab...all looked bad in ooc but all magically figure it out in conference play..all your top teams!!

uab is returning from a self imposed death penalty and is projected to win 8 games ..on its first year!...that shouldnt be happening at any truly competitive league

we had this debate with some fau fans in the AAC forum... i get that as a fau fan you want to believe you just got THAT MUCH BETTER!!!!
but any logical person not biased can see the level of play in the c-usa this year is very low...allowing the better of all those bad teams to look better than they should

you arent blowing out navy, thats a fact..ucf and memphis barely beat navy but fau is winning 20+ ridiculous

FAU doesn't even start the same QB anymore. FAU is playing a different game, and everyone is on the same page. Had you seen the FAU - Navy game you would have known the guys looked like they had never met. For freak's sake, they couldn't even snap the ball right!

FAU would drop 40 on Navy, for certain. The open question is how much FAU's defense had improved. That they had improved you could see in FAU's next game at Wisconsin.
