    Tech ended last season with an 116 RPI, so the road game against them would have been a Group 2 game.

    Richmond ended last season with a 72 RPI, so the neutral court game against them would have been a Group 2 game.

    Ole Miss ended last season with a 68 RPI, so the road game against them would have been a Group 1 Game.

    Clemson ended last season with a 75 RPI, so the road game against them would have been a Group 1 Game. (which it was this year as well)

    This was less about our scheduling per se and more normally strong programs underperforming (e.g., Iowa, Richmond, Tech, and Ole Miss).
    I agree, but we still should never schedule people we know will be group 3 or 4; precisely because we know some of the expected 1 and 2 teams will underperform.

    The committee is much more likely to look at who you beat as opposed to where you finish in your league.

    And, that is why mid-majors need not apply.
    And, that is why ANY talk of an at large bid for us is silly. And, was silly before our loss to GA St.
    No anger pills this morning?

    I don't know who runs the social media sites for basketball, but for the love of all things holy, PLEASE STOP ACKNOWLEDGING THIS STUPID MID MAJOR POLE.

    Our official Cajuns twitter and MBB is tweeting out that we're #2 in this poll. So small time man.. 🤦_♂️

    Actually, I don't think it's a big deal that it's getting publicized. It's national recognition.

    Someone once asked me to suggest to basketball folks they stop recognizing the mid major poll. If I do question something it will be something like why not have Marcus Stroman shoot when he is wide open 4 feet from the basket and all of his passing targets are covered. As Willis said, they will take any type recognition they can get.

    Oklahoma lost again last night. They should be a lock now for an at-large.

    Why isn't CUSA considered a mid major basketball conference?

    If fans are throwing it around, that's one thing. It's another story when our official social media sites are posting a secondary, made up poll. In fact, I'll do some research and see if Gonzaga is embracing this poll. My guess is, hell no.

    UPDATE: of course they don't. We're the only school in the "top 5" (and that's as far as I looked) of that poll acknowledging that poll via our official social sites.

    These are the same type folks that want a G5 playoff in football. It further separates us from the rest of FBS and in MBB, D1.

    Of course they don't care...they've been relevant in the real top 25 poll for years...in no way is this a suggestion that we should care...

    Because the NCAA thinks Louisville, Memphis and Marquette are still in CUSA.

    I'm torn on this. We gotta start somewhere and anything to drum up the excitement for support I'm ok with. If we put a nice run together over the next few years this can be left in the rear view.

    Don't let anyone put a label on you and for damn sure don't embrace it. Once you accept that you are a mid major that's how you are perceived,

    I did the research last time you suspected they weren't.

    You were right.

    The Lady Zags did for a while but they quit too.

    Personally I like the poll.

    I would like a top-25 poll(s) for teams that lost Seniors, start more than 2 freshman (hello Kentucky), play in an open air stadium, have a first year coach, draw at least 4,000 to a game, don't draw 4,000 to a game. Are a mid-major, shouldn't be a mid-major.

    It's harmless, don't take yourself too seriously. The P5 schools aren't checking to see if you promoted yourself.

    So go ahead promote yourself.
