Underdog dynasty CUSA power ranking…

  1. Charlotte (4-8, 3-5, LW: #9)
    Last result: Charlotte 14 UTSA 33

The three-game losing streak to close the season is definitely a downer but the 49ers have proven that they are no longer a pushover and an automatic W going into next year. If not for the late season fade Brad Lambert would have easily won C-USA Coach of the Year.

Utsa or odu’s coach would have been great choices too even if we had won the last three games. I don’t think there would have been any easy choices.

Question is how long will he be there? If he sees 3 years there I will be shocked.

Lets look at the coaches.

WKU: Give them the benefit of the doubt.
MTSU: Yup.
ODU: Own us so far.
Marshall: Despite our win, Doc is head and shoulders above Lambert (his results).
FIU: Butch Davis did well in his two stops (despite shady practices).
FAU: Not sure if Kiffin has learned, but he has pedigree.

All of a sudden…we’re looking outmatched and outgunned in the CUSA East.

WKU hires Mike Sanford, OC at notre dame. Head scratcher but WKU does well.

Wilder is not going to Temple. He’s about to get an extension at ODU.

I wonder if it helps recruiting down there to have 2 conference “rivals” in the state of Florida. It can’t hurt.

If Kelly was fired, ND donors were pushing for Sanford to stay and replace him. I think WKU got them another good one, we’ll see how long they can hold on to him.

Doesn’t hurt to tell a kid he gets to play a game in his home state every year.
