Conference USA Standings
TEAM CONF OVERALL
Middle Tennessee 12-1 20-5
Old Dominion 10-2 19-5
Western Kentucky 10-2 18-7
Marshall 8-4 17-8
North Texas 7-5 14-11
UT San Antonio 7-5 14-11
UAB 7-6 16-10
Louisiana Tech 6-7 15-11
Southern Miss 6-7 13-13
Florida Intl 5-8 11-15
Florida Atlantic 4-9 10-15
UTEP 2-10 7-17
Rice 2-10 5-20
Charlotte 1-11 5-18

2 teams right in front of us by 1/2 game both beat us so they would win any tie for seeding purposes. Tech & USM are behind us by 1 game but we have to play them both on the road soon.

Our schedule is probably the toughest remaining for any CUSA team.

Hard to be optimistic for a 4 wins in 4 days scenario to salvage the season.

Shame on you complainers out there. We are only half a game behind mighty UNT and UTSA. Not to worry though. So long as we finish in the top half of the league, this year will have been a success.

Rpiforecast.com has UAB, UTSA and North Texas finishing in a 3-way tie for 5th at 10-8. That would keep us at the 7 seed.

In all seriousness, who has said anything remotely resembling this statement?

Apparently anyone questioning the coach or direction of the program is somehow less of a fan than those who seem to think things are just fine. The current state of things is not okay. And for anyone to pretend it is, they do an even greater disservice to the program IMO than the “complainers.”

RE: Conference USA Standings
You simply just dodged the question i asked altogether. Who has claimed finishing in the top half of the league is a success this year.

Those who consistently complain on this board seem to be missing what the mods are talking about.(i have had my issues with the mods in the past, but they are right here in my opinion). The “complainers” show up everytime things don’t go perfectly, or we lose a game, or we have an off night. Those same people refuse to show up when we have a good showing, or win a game, or do something positive. The season has not gone the way anybody thought it would(anybody think otherwise?) that’s frustrating enough. Having the same posters come on here after every loss or missed shot or missed rebound gets old. The complainers have taught us:

Our schedule sucks(i agree and this is the biggest complaint i have this season, but it’s time to let that go)
Lee sucks
Norton sucks
Ehsan sucks
Every assisatant coach sucks
The students suck
The fans suck

I’m sure I’ve missed some other stuff we suck at.

It seems like some fans enjoy us losing so they can ***** than us winning at this point. Just one man’s opinion.

Exactly. There even seems to be disappointment we pulled this one out. They had all their cannons loaded, and crap, we won the game.

Instead they dwell in fantasy land by saying that some fans think everything is great. Well just because some fans don't smear their negative thoughts about the season all over social media in the middle of the season doesn't mean they think things are great.

Trashing the coach and team in the middle of the season is counterproductive. It's not going to change a damn thing and doesn't make things any better.

+1 9911.

"Supposed fans" bi*tching after a win, and supposedly following a team that has obvious struggles.

Why are they here again ? Oh yeah, to tear us down.

And to the mods: I wish you'd let my post up in the other thread. Thanks, Phil.

RE: Conference USA Standings
If anyone thinks anyone on this board who pays money supporting the program takes ANY joy in the less than desirable results we have seen, you are kidding yourself. None of us take joy in it. Quite the opposite. Obviously, hence the complaints. It’s not as though there isn’t something to complain about. I don’t think anyone here would say it’s unreasonable to expect UAB to beat teams like UTSA or UNT at home. Not an irrational idea.

I would agree that calling for someone’s firing mid season doesn’t help anyone or anything. But complaining on a message board isn’t the evil that some make it out to be. If you think it is, then all sports forums are evil because they’ve all got it. Nothing unique about this place in that respect. If you’re worried about a bunch of folks leaving the forum from some negative posts, create a climate of censorship and see how many people remain.

We won tonight. Take joy in it. You are complaining about a win.

Nice comeback win against an absolute bottom dweller, but the trajectory of the program remains strongly negative.

Would love to see you guys move up a couple notches to #5. Especially if Rice can find a way to sneak in at #12. #Rematch

How do tie breakers work? If we were to lose to Tech and end up with the same record? We would be 1-1 against each other.

Do they go by the best conference win or something else?

Yes, time to accentuate the positive and look at our best conference wins.

Tech, without their best player at Bartow. USM at Bartow and the F@U teams on the road.

Tech & USM get us on their home courts. But no matter what, they can't take away the quality F*U road wins from us.

Wow, I feel more positive already.

I admit, Its all my fault for expecting us to be 2nd in CUSA along with the coaches. That kind of negativity brought us down. I'm sure.

It'll be just horrible if we go 4-1 or 5-0 and slip into the 4 seed. Some of you are going to be on suicide watch if we're 4-0 in that span going into the WukU game.

Id be celebrating if we go 4-1. or even 3-2.

The reason I brought up wagering, if it were legal, is what could be better than winning money and going 5-0?

Wagering is not legal however and there is the entire matter of would the positive poster be able to survive going 3-2 and losing money?

It seems we have a lot of fans who are just on the edge of being suicidal, not because of our horrible record or our 7th place standing but because of realistic message board posters, and I sure would not want to contribute to that by taking your money when you wager goes bad.

Id be thrilled to go 5-0 and lose some money in the process. But that must be my negativity.

Some of the realistic posters seem to enjoy when we lose games so they can come here and discuss things. These same fans are nowhere to be found when we have a good result.
