Agreed, but you can only move up one spot per week anyway.

RE: CUSA Fan Misery Index
USM is the closest thing we have for a rival in this conference. We generally don't like WKU, but have a mutual respect for USM that makes it more of a rivalry.

Move UTEP up one for beating a rival (Rice) or if that’s not enough of a rival, (new rule)for “ending any double-digit losing streak”. Nation’s longest at 20.

Rice is now on the clock with nation’s longest at 9. If we play our cards right we’ll be up in the double digits ourselves when we roll in to ODU for the finale.

Just 7 years ago we were top 25. Why didn't you compare UNCC to USM? Oh yea, that is because of your basketball program. Most people in Charlotte don't even know UNCC exists. I went to a game at your school this year and the biggest tailgating scene was at the USM tent. It was literally deader than a high school game.

And yes, you guys won, so there is that.

Is a 9 game losing streak the same as three 3 game streaks, 3 levels? Or is it a 5 game streak and a 3 game streak? Or should we just go down another level for every loss in a row after 5?

So much misery here...

UTEP and RICE have shared the same conference and played each other annually since 1996. Aside from WKU vs MTSU this is the longest active series in CUSA. We’re not considered rivals but we should be. During our WAC days it was developing into a rivalry with each posting four wins. Since joining CUSA together RICE has won 10 of the 14 matchups. I feel like RICE is the only team we have a history with in this current version of CUSA.

I was wrestling with that one myself earlier. I am just going to take the rules quite literally since I didn't create them, and after 5 games of losing it won't let you move any farther down due to the same streak.

Yeah, I've learned my lesson this year. Next year (if I remember) I'm definitely not doing the rivals thing. This set of rules was meant for P5 teams, so rivalry games were like Ohio State and Michigan. I don't know if anyone in CUSA has a rivalry quite like those, and if they do, it seems the fans can't agree on any of them.

Thanks for putting this thread together. It’s been fun following along and I really think the “formula” is pretty close to accurate in the kinds of things that really get fan bases worked up (both + and -)

If you don’t do it next year, though, I might take a stab at it.

New rule for 2019: there are three kinds of rivals:
Rivals, Rivals, and $&@ RIVALS.

I’ve enjoyed following it. But some tweaking could make it better. There have to be lower levels.

Make one called Junior Sanford level. I honestly don’t believe there’s a worse coach in FBS. That is not hyperbole. Rumor is the money has been gathered for the buyout. I know every hire is a crapshoot but I can’t imagine someone coming in and doing worse than this guy.
