Conference USA RPI

Conference USA has fared very well in the RPI this year. As a whole it ranks 8th, with 7 current top 100 teams, and 3 in the top 50. Those numbers are much improved from last year's, which thanks to el javi will be shown in this edition of the RPI. These rankings will look a little different as of tomorrow morning, as the top 4 teams in conference square off tonight. It is certainly an opportunity for any of the four to pick a quality win. Here is how things stand as of today.

Again, thanks to el javi for digging this information up. As you can see, the numbers speak for themselves. Its a shame that some of the national media still feels that Conference USA is only a one bid league. This conference has some very good ball clubs, and every game in this conference is a tough one. Rarely does anyone get off easy in C-USA. Well, all we can do is keep winning games, keep improving our numbers, and as said many times before, hope that the people that actually set the brackets see things differently than the people that project the brackets. It's a huge night here in Conference USA. I can't wait for 7 p.m. et.
