    Welp, I wonder what our illustrious conference leaders are gonna do to fix this? I guess, when your best teams are former belt teams, that pretty much sums it up.

    Huh, what about this nugget: "Our third place rank can be heavily attributed to our overall non-conference winning percentage of 24-20 – highest ever achieved by the Sun Belt and the best of the G5 conferences this season," Benson wrote. "And this can be attributed by the scheduling strategies you have adopted in limiting the number of non-conference games played against the P5 conferences – 10 overall this past season which is the lowest of the G5 conferences."

    I guess C-USA could always schedule more SWAC and less P-5 (I'm kidding folks). I wonder what the payout math would look like if you factored in the money C-USA teams receive for playing P-5 teams during the regular season.

    The Belt kinda rigged the formula by kicking out NMSU and then scheduling several wins against the Raggies in OOC play.

    I quit reading the article when I saw that comment. Basically, Benson is saying "Thanks for scheduling a bunch of weak ass opponents in your non-conference games so that our record can look good." It's fool's gold.

    Oh, I agree, but at least their leadership tries to move forward, upward and out of the basement while CUSA leadership spends all it's time worrying about such drivel as inclusiveness and fair play. When you get passed by the Belt, by anyone's measure, it is time to re-think where you are and how you got here.

    A 1 year blip does not necessarily mean that the Belch has passed anyone. If more CUSA teams would handle their business on these losers, we wouldn't have to read this crap.

    And we should schedule more with them... instead of UMess and Bowling Pins.

    Look in the mirror. You lost to ULM, a Suck Belt program with only 1 winning season in the last quarter century! The Buzzards have no one to blame but themselves.

    My edit of the story...ULM is of the 10 members who will receive the payout even though the Indians-Warhawks have only had ONE measly winning season since copycatting Louisiana Tech and moving up to the Division 1-A/FBS level in 1994.
