This.

They are better than JMU, whom we lost to.

We haven't become world beaters by any stretch, but progress is progress.

Absolutely. Not a great win by any means, but thats not a bottom feeder CUSA win.

They are actually dead last in the CUSA standings.

Two game in talking about standings, funny bunch. Half the teams were on the road and half at home, think that may matter.

Sure. We're about to find out over the next three games.

I'm just happy that we won two home games after losing to JMU at home. That was just flat out embarrassing.

RE: UAB
Might matter, might not. Right now, there is more evidence that UAB is a bottom feeder than not. They did win some games out of conference, but if you drill down into their resume, they really beat nobody significant enough to say they are better than anyone else. Of the conference standings may change, but Giles made the ridiculous assertion... just felt it needed the alternate fact. My guess is they (UAB) finish in the 2nd or 3rd pod somewhere between #8 and #14 and behind Charlotte and the FUs. My guess is ODU finishes in the top 4 and probably the top 2. Haven't seen anything impressive and believe it of not, I actually think JJ is a decent coach when he has team chemistry playing against similar talent. Where he fails is against better talent and I'm just not seeing that in the conference. Who knows?

Of course they're a bottom feeder! How can you be good if you lose to ODU!

RE: UAB
I don't see how saying UAB isn't a bottom feeder is a ridiculous comment.

FWIW, UAB is roughly around us......175 in KenPom. They lost to two teams on the road that were roughly around us (Charlotte). They played relatively well vs. Kentucky (15), Texas (64), and Memphis (38) and have a top 100 win (Duquesne).

MTSU is 287 in KenPom at the moment. Southern Miss is 274. That is bottom feeder.

RE: UAB
I have to concur with Giles on this one as far as UAB being a "bottom feeder" in CUSA. Sure they are 0-2 in the conference, but as someone stated earlier it is far too early to make too much out of that, especially since both of their games thus far have been on the road. That said, I don't see UAB fighting for the conference title unless they improve enough to look a lot better then they did last weekend.

All of this is tied to my own thoughts on what the term "bottom feeder" means. To me it means the team that is on the bottom or at least in danger of finishing on the bottom. Yes they are currently there, but again it is too early for that to have any real meaning. I would be surprised if UAB is at the bottom at the end of the season. From what little I have seen thus far, I do believe they will finish higher than Southern Mississippi (for example).

I hope you are right about ODU finishing in the Top 4 or probably in the Top 2. Not sure I can say that I share in your optimism about it though.

Yea I watched UTSA last night. They made La Tech look pretty bad in the first half. Had a huge lead on them and they just came out flat in the second half. That one could've been much more embarrassing for the Bulldogs.

RE: UAB
So is UAB still a bottom feeder or did they move out of that distinction?

RE: UAB
I'm going to hold back any thought of us having a shot to win this league until we see how they perform on the road, something most teams in CUSA are struggling with. But I'm getting more optimistic.

No body in the conference is head and shoulders above the rest. I believe someone could in up in the 2nd pod during the pod play and win the conference. Your last four games you avoid the top 4.

Nope, they proved to be quite the juggernaut. Picking them as my sleeper Final Four pick. Look out Duke!

Yeah but your highest seed in the tourney is still 6. Also, I bet that whoever ends up #1 in pod 1 is the Regular Season Conference Champion.

Thanks you're correct, the most you can move up is your pod bracket
