Sorry, I have no idea what to do with the Texas schools. Also considered WKU vs MTSU, but then wouldn't know what to do with Marshall.

Another thought is to simply just make the last game of the year count as the rivalry game if we can't agree on the above? Then it would look like this:

ODU - Rice
Marshall - FIU
WKU - La Tech
USM - UTEP
UAB - MTSU
Charlotte - FAU
UNT - UTSA

UNT and Texas State (play on the 22nd) are UTSAs rivals

- put together a 5 game win streak
- beat a ranked team
- beat a P5 team
- beat a G5 team by 21 or more

- lose any game by 21 points or more

Level 2:
Marshall
North Texas

Level 3:
FIU
La Tech
USM

Level 4:
Charlotte (lost by 21 or more; lost to their rival)
FAU
MTSU
ODU
Rice
UAB (lost by 21 or more)
UTSA

Level 5:
WKU (lost to an FCS school)
UTEP (lost by 21 or more)

Damn. So does the Charlotte or ODU fan feel better about their program than the WKU fan?

IDK. Sure, Western is down. But I think you can still at least live off of recent success. Charlotte in particular, from an outsiders perspective at least, has nothing to hang their hat on.

IDK. Seems odd.

Also, a warning to FAU fans. I know you don't want to hear it, but success is certainly fleeting on this level. Get used to the ebb and flow.

That success seems like to me 10 years ago......At least WKU fans had zero expectations entering this season except for a WKU blog who were saying we were going to win 8 games, I called them out on Twitter for that nonsense....ODU fans were acting like they were goin 12-0 this preseason so they should be really disappointed....I expected WKU to win 2 games this season with one being Maine, now I expect to go 0-12, anything else would be a surprise to me...

The way WKU players were celebrating/smack talking in the first quarter makes that loss look especially bad. I remember one play where a WKU linebacker hit #8 on Maine and stood over him while trash talking. He ran right through your defense after that.

Don't worry Charlotte fans, I will be bumping you up and moving ODU down as this was a rivalry game. But for the sake of my sanity and keeping things straight, I'll do it along with all the other conference teams on Sunday 04-cheers

This thread is complete BS. We have been terrible at money sports for 15 years. If there is a misery trophy it belongs to Charlotte. Now there is a trophy in the year we just suck slightly less???? We don’t even suck right. Fight me.

It's not his opinion. He's following the rules form the website that only counts P5 teams and has modified it slightly for C-USA.

RE: CUSA Fan Misery Index
Well at least Western fans can point to Nov and say there's ....basketball. To be honest I'm probably alone in saying I would gladly take a 2 loss football season and top 25 over a NIT F4 basketball season.

A few years ago you would find me watching 3 basketball games at a time and recording 3 others to watch (parts of) later . So that's a change in me. I expect it to switch back after 2018, 2019 and most likely 2020. By then all the fun will be sucked from football.

yet I'm that idiot that shows up to every game (home and away) thinking....it turns around starting today. Oh, the disappointment. Not to mention long drives with nothing to do but think of the outcome. That is miserable at the highest level

Good morning. Here is an update. Remember, you can only move one spot per week. Not much movement this week.

Assumptions: FAU and UCF are not rivals. Same with ODU vs VT, LSU vs La Tech, FIU vs Miami. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Moved up: ODU, UTSA
Moved down: Rice, UTEP

A Team's Fans go UP a level if they:

- beat their rival
- put together a 3 game win streak
- put together a 5 game win streak
- beat a ranked team
- beat a P5 team
- beat an FBS team by 21 or more
- win the division

A Team's Fans go DOWN a level if they:

- lose to their rival
- put together a 3 game losing streak
- put together a 5 game losing streak
- lose to any FCS opponent
- lose any game by 21 points or more
- fail to become bowl eligible

Level 1:
North Texas

Level 2:
Marshall
FIU

Level 3:
Charlotte
La Tech
USM

Level 4:
FAU
ODU (beat a ranked team; beat a P5 team)
UAB
UTSA (beat their rival Texas State)

Level 5:
MTSU
Rice (3 game losing streak)

Level 6:
WKU

Level 7:
UTEP (lost to their rival NM State)

Edited for rival corrections
