I'm really surprised they have Western ranked so low. John Rothstein has them as one of the top 30 teams in the country I think.

I agree. KenPom has WKU going 12-8 in conference.

RE: UAB Basketball - KenPom Predictions
Losing Southern Miss definitely is a benefit. Also surprising they have FAU ranked as the 3rd highest ranked team in CUSA. I foresee a lot of changes as the year goes on.

And this is why I complained about our schedule. We have some fine teams on it, but nothing that really gives us an elite challenge. I have no hope WVU will be anything other than bottom of the pack in the big XII. I think South Carolina has a little upside. The rest kind of the teams pretty much are what they are. Hopefully the conference teams perform OOC and we have better rankings entering conference play.

RE: UAB Basketball - KenPom Predictions
What am I missing about FAU? They were decent last year but nothing incredible. I don’t understand how they are consistently ranked ahead of WKU, and especially MTSU.

Yeah, I would put WKU over them, but I think they have a legit chance to be a Top 100 team.

RE: UAB Basketball - KenPom Predictions
FAU, Middle, and WKU are all better than being projected IMHO. Dusty (FAU) is a damn good coach and he has recruited well.

I definitely think they are underestimating MT. We swept both FAU and WKU last season and have basically our whole team back plus additions. We have gotten zero respect in the preseason projections. I would put us after UAB and NT in the ranking ahead of FAU and WKU.

RE: UAB Basketball - KenPom Predictions
Averages based on KenPom preseason rating:

Current AAC: 100.4
New AAC: 130.9

Both iterations have 7 teams in the top-100. Happy to not see it slide too much after losing #2 Houston, and adding #291 UTSA.

Current CUSA: 148.8
New CUSA: 157.0

Top 100 teams drops from 4 to 2.
