    Conf Cusa Conference C-USA No Longer ‘Head and Shoulders’ above Sun Belt?

    Interesting article today (12/13/2017) by Patrick Magee in the Gulfport Sun Herald states that “It wasn't that long ago when Conference USA was considered head and shoulders above the Sun Belt Conference, but that era is long gone.”

    Read “C-USA raided the Sun Belt 5 years ago. Which conference is in better shape now?,” including quotes by Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson, at

    The records of the teams certainly don't show that.
    CUSA- 10 bowl eligible, 7 with winning records
    SBC-- 5 bowl eligible, 4 with winning records

    The article is based off of predictive expectations. Let's allow CUSA to show up and hopefully show out and claim some W's, then we'll see who is head and shoulders above the other!

    . Look at Rivals— CUSA has 50 repeat FIFTY 3 star recruits as opposed to 20 for Sun Belt. ... as of today. The future of CUSA continues to look a lot better than the belt—-

    Benson managed the WAC into oblivion- a proud conference died under his leadership..why put any credibility in what he says? He is bragging that the SunBelt tv revenue is 100k and going up while CUSA only getting 1 million 100 thousand for next 2 years. Check my math but I think that’s 1 million a year more for CUSA.

    If he can't influence that amount to go up during the next contract negotiations then he should be relieved of his duties!

    We lose to Sunbelt teams all the time - how many current CUSA members were formally in the Sunbelt - UNT, MT, WKU, FAU (?).

    Formerly is the key word there. I don't think that on the field the Sunbelt is even close to us but perception for CUSA is so bad that most don't notice.

    Patrick Magee's articles are garbage. Most of the information in his stories on this topic are wrong. It's not even worth discussing, which is likely why an administrator sent this to the Pit. Magee has posted 2 stories on this topic in the past week. Both of them garbage. No one in CUSA is talking about this but him.

    Thank you! He is the epitome of modern journalists who write stuff as the truth and never share that it is based on their own opinion. Readers/listeners often assume it is documented.

    Yes, why it is in the pit with no redirect in the original location.

    I stumbled across this lil' gem today..... Not many thought that CUSA and SBC were equals then. I don't think they are equals now, in football at least. They are way better. Especially since we just got our butts handed to us by the fourth-best SBC team.

    Our former AD would favor giving our commissioner a contract extension. Apparently all the CUSA presidents are okay with the job she is doing.
