We have UAB at home, on the road at LaTech, and then host USM to finish out. I hope we can finish strong for the seniors and carry some momentum into next season.
The conference is looking at only getting 1 or 2 bids at this point. Other than Rice, everyone has had their ups and downs.
Old Dominion 29
East Carolina 64
Southern Miss 68
Middle Tennessee 101
Texas-San Antonio 122
Florida Atlantic 135
Louisiana Tech 226[/quote]
So in other words, not much better than the A-10??[/quote]
Way better than the A-10. 9th in RPI vs 24th in RPI. C-USA has one 200+ team. The A-10 has 7.[/quote]
I agree with your point…but to be fair, I would bet the bottom 3 (us, tulane, marshall) are only above 200 because of the competition.[/quote]
That’s how being in a better conference works, right?[/quote]
Yeah that is how it works. However…Charlotte baseball has sucked this year either way you slice it. Good conference or not. Touting the team RPI above 200 doesn’t mean anything because RPI is driven so much or SOS. It is a smililar argument to Charlotte basketball 2 years ago. The league was a very good league…but we were still at the bottom.[/quote]
I don’t think you’ll find anyone saying that it’s been a great season. They have improved as the season has progressed. I take that as a good sign.[/quote]
This team has definitely gotten much better as the season has gone on. Most of us (that actually follow the team) thought this team would get better as it gained experience (so many young guys playing and some of the few older guys not playing like they have in the past----regardless of the class of the opponent) and it has, as painful as the first half of the season was. I have confidence in this program going forward.[/quote]
Definitely agree. We are probably easily in the top 100 rpi for just the month of April (if there was a way to calculate it for a month).
Ironically, the baseball team has done the exact opposite of our basketball team. The basketball team started off winning and got worse. The baseball team started off very slowly and got better as the season progressed.

This isn’t going anywhere good…
