Here's the full list of CUSA teams according to SP+ rating:

71.    Marshall
72.    Southern Miss
74.    Florida Atlantic
81.    North Texas
86.    Louisiana Tech
90. Florida International
101. Middle Tennessee
104. UAB   
106. Western Kentucky
118. Charlotte
122. Old Dominion
126. UTSA
127. Rice
130. UTEP

Pretty sad that over half the league is in the bottom 30 teams of the country.
Oh well, at least we're the 2nd tallest midget. **drinks**

Fwiw, we are -175 u7.5 wins...o7.5 is +125

I wouldn't touch the 7.5 o/u line. I feel like we are an 8-4 team, but we always seem to have a TTT loss thrown in.

Interesting that FAU is the Vegas favorite in the East. Most of the preseason prognosticators I've seen have FIU & Marshall ahead of FAU.  I guess having a name coach like Kiffin is drawing in the majority of money.

I see Ole Miss got 1 vote. They are supposed to be terrible this year, so either someone confused them with Mississippi State or some Sports Information Director (the coaches don't actually vote) is an Ole Miss fan.

We were 6 points from 9-2 and two TD's from being 10-1.

I hate this type hypothetical thinking. We were also 3 points away from being 4-7. It can always go both ways.

Think the NFL Network is covering production. It's a tier three contract. Not bad for what it is, and the exposure is pretty great. Recruits should love the sound of the NFL Network.

I hope you're correct about the production costs. As far as exposure, I don't think it really matters. Streaming is becoming such a common thing, that I don't think a 16-18 year old recruit would thing twice about watching a game streamed on Netflix vs watching a game on the NFL Network. It's such common practice for them, I just don't think it has an affect. Dan Patrick was talking the other day about the NFL wanting to hurry up and negotiate their next TV contract because this would be the last NFL contract where traditional carriers are serious bidders. Beyond that, the Netflix/Amazon Prime bidders of the world would take over.

The most concerning part to me is the money, or lack thereof, involved. We are getting further and further behind. The American's new television deal is supposedly gonna be worth about $7 million per school, per year. How much is our total payout? A few hundred K? That's just too big of a gap to sustain for very long. We aren't talking about the gap between us and the SEC schools, we're talking about the gap between us and Memphis, Tulane, Houston, etc. It won't take too many years before their facilities are exponentially better than ours. If we can't compete with Tulane and Memphis, then why is there any hope of renewed interest going forward?
