    UTSA, UAB, UNT and LTUR are all top 200.

    We are top 100.
    GaSt, GaSo and UTA are top 200.

    It should be pretty obvious which conference is better.

    That being said, CUSA is a high major conference only because of teams that are no longer there. Louisville, Cincinnati, Memphis, Marquette, etc.
    Anyone have a shot for an at-large from CUSA?

    MT may have a shot. They won a tourney game recently. 2016 perhaps.

    Yes, they beat #2 Michigan State in the first round.

    Probably only MTSU, but ODU has a nice win or two. I think WKU would have to win the tournament to get in.
    Best shot for CUSA to get 2 in is for MTSU to run the table, then lose to someone, preferably ODU or WKU in the tourney finals.

    CUSA is a better basketball league this year.

    But the Sun Belt was ranked better than they were last year by a pretty wide margin.

    I think when strength of conference is talked about, we tend to only look at the top of the league.

    There are some pretty bad basketball schools in CUSA. Their bottom might be worse than ours.

    I don't necessarily disagree with you, but there are some pretty bad teams in the bottom half of the West Coast Conference, and nobody is calling it a bad conference.

    I don't think there is much argument to be made; the top of CUSA is better in most years than the top of the SBC. The bottom of the SBC is generally better than the bottom of CUSA. Neither is a very good conference.

    If you took the top half of both conferences and made one league, it might well be a multi-bid league.

    Some of the people in the SBC are calling the West Conference a poor league. It is just not their lower half that is weak. The top 2 are excellent of course but after that it drops off rapidly.

    The WCC isn't becoming a one bid league as long as Gonzaga, BYU and St. Mary's are members, no matter how bad the bottom is.

    But that's because of accomplishments outside of the conference. I'm still waiting on that. But these guys are pretty special, and good.
