Conference USA has done extremely well this year in the RPI. The conference now has 7 teams in the top 100, and 3 in the top 50, with UTEP working its way to being the 4th. We've got some good teams, but so far it hasn't been enough to gain any credibility on the national scene. All we can do is continue to play solid basketball, win games, and try to improve our numbers. Hopefully the NCAA tournament committee sees things a little differently than the clowns that project the bracket. If not we're in trouble. Here are the Conference USA RPI rankings now in the second week of February.
