  1. C-USA West will have their media day starting at 2pm central on ESPN3.
  2. Attendance from the 2017-18 season for NCAA hoops is attached:
  3. Another rule change to ponder during the off season. It seems to me this one favors the bigger conferences but certainly that is up for debate. All teams will get to play more of their players which is a positive. Thoughts?

  5. Good article on behind the scenes!
  6. The ever-widening gulf between the haves and have-nots of modern day college athletics hit UAB like a punch in the gut last month. The athletic department was forced to cut or eliminate 12 positions before the start of its new fiscal year in July. The estimated savings are about $400,000. Caught in the middle of the sudden layoffs was Zac Schrieber. Schrieber was a sports information director at Samford University for 14 years. Last month, he was offered a position by UAB to be the Blazers' new SID for men's basketball. For a father with two young children, it was a major step for his family and his career. Then came the call from UAB's human resources. Just before the end of business on Friday, June 15, and two days before the start of his new job at UAB, the university's human resources department informed him the position was no longer available. Schrieber said the call came at 4:29 p.m. Samford's human resources department closed at 4:30 p.m. "If I would have been told just four hours earlier, I could have most likely stopped everything on the Samford end of things and kept my job there," Schrieber said in a text message. Schrieber is now unemployed for the first time in 23 years.
  7. Some good bits in there.
  8. It is called th Alliance pro team. Will share space at Alamo dome with UTSA. Positive for UTSA to be closely aligned with a pro squad. Link to article:
  9. 2 million buyout. He is going rule the roost for a long time there!

  11. Kia Locksley their QB transfer was the national JUCO MVP last year. Now they add the best fullback in the market. This UTEP squad is going to surprise some people this season folks.

    Owls ranked #17 USA Today

    Impressive. Kiffin is representing C-USA In a big way. Deserves a ton of credit for what he has accomplished in such a short time.
  15. FAU Sept. 1 at Oklahoma; Sept. 8 vs. Air Force; Sept. 15 vs. Bethune-Cookman; Sept. 21 at UCF Lane Kiffin led the Owls to their first Conference USA championship last season but duplicating that feat could be difficult especially with a treacherous nonconference schedule that features road games against a pair of conference champions in Oklahoma and UCF. The good news is FAU went 1-3 in nonconference in 2017 and still managed an 11-win season. Middle Tennessee Sept. 1 at Vanderbilt; Sept 8 vs. UT Martin; Sept. 15 at Georgia; Nov. 17 at Kentucky The Blue Raiders open up the season on the road for the first time since 2011 as the team travels to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt. Middle Tennessee has split the series (3-3) but all three wins have come on the road. MTSU has lost 12 out of its last 13 meetings with teams from the SEC with the last win coming in 2016. The program is a combined 0-3 all-time against Georgia and Kentucky. UTSA Sept. 1 at Arizona State; Sept. 8 vs. Baylor; Sept. 15 at Kansas State; Sept. 22 vs. Texas State UTSA is one of just two CUSA schools to play three teams from Power 5 conferences this season (Middle Tennessee). The Roadrunners won three games out of conference in a single season for the first time since fully joining CUSA in 2013 including the program’s first win over a P5 school in Baylor. North Texas Sept. 1 vs. SMU; Sept. 8 vs. Incarnate Word; Sept. 15 at Arkansas; Sept. 22 at Liberty North Texas put together just it’s second winning season since 2005 when the Mean Green won nine games in 2017. The good news for Seth Littrell’s program is they’ll face one of the easiest schedules in the conference with an FCS foe (Incarnate Word) and a program transitioning into the Football Bowl Subdivision (Liberty).
