How are you ever going to crack the top 25 when every team you play loses ooc games? Perception is reality. PPl aren't impressed with CUSA and it is bad when we lose to Sunbelt teams. There is a ladder in football and we need to be moving up.

UCF went undefeated in the AAC and they didn't even sniff the playoffs.

Ncaa actually has them as national champions in the record books.

Also, I believe TCU weren't stagnate in their conference placement. We need to be moving up asap.

Well rice is playing a MWC team now..... tomorrow? Idk sometime. I'll pass on MWC time zone. Unless SMU drops football we won't be in AAC.

Because when you win a division and/or conference champioship that is weak (like CUSA currently is) you are not taken seriously.

what does that mean...taken seriously?  is north texas going to somehow be granted millions because they are taken seriously?  gonna get a new conference?  what do you mean "taken seriously"?  

 

with your train of thought, what's the point of winning cusa this year???  it's weak...so who cares..

The ppl who rank the teams know the difference and that does matter. With our team right now would you rather be playing Houston who just beat a PAC 12 team or CUSA teams that lost to multiple Sunbelts teams. When was the last time CUSA had someone in the top 25? I agree with winning, but we need to capitalizing on winning.

We are too good for CUSA. UAB just lost Coastal Carolina. We have been to stagnate in re-positioning ourselves. Thank God someone had the common sense to move us out of the FCS. In college football you are either moving up or down. That includes facilities, recruits and perception. There is a reason the AAC pushes the Power 6 slogan (whether you like it or not). They get it.

Then don't expect better bowls, better perception or cracking the top 25. Then don't expect better bowls, better perception or cracking the top 25. That thinking is why we have trouble moving up in the world...... CUSA is "GOOD ENOUGH". Imagine if we did both. The conference you are in beats..... SUNBELT opponents....... and we win the championship? Crazy, I know.

see questions about our Sunbelt wins during the early 2000's for an example as to why it matters.

The better the teams you beat, the better the perception of your program.   Petty simple logic being this is very seriously considered for post-season play.   

For example, CUSA had big wins over Southern, UT Martin, and Incarnate Word tonight.  Few care about those games because none of those teams are considered good.

Exactly. OOC games do matter. If you think they don't  ppl are kidding themselves. To move up in rankings and to crack the top 25 you have to beat good teams..... most of our games our conference games. Hence why you want your conference to do well in ooc games...... what a concept.

UAB still scary?

These people that rank teams also ranked FAU, UAB and Marshall pretty high. 

Let's take care of our schedule, focus on Arkansas and stop worrying about what happens down the line. UTSA thought they would be undefeated last year and cropped the bed. We made fun of them to no end. Let's take care of business a week at a time and see where we stand in December before projecting some team's weakness will ruin our chance at a random bowl.

All this pissing and moaning about the conference is dumb at this point. We're stuck until probably 2023. Even then we might not like the way things are shaken up. All you can do is win and make a case for why North Texas football should be elevated.
