    WAC over MWC

    With the RPI no longer being used by the NCAA I've found a lot of the RPI websites aren't really being maintained anymore. KenPom has the MWC at #11 and the WAC at #16. This is in a year where the MWC looks terrible and the WAC looks improved. I agree that it's a bad look but I still think there is a pretty large separation between the 2 conferences.

    WAC over MWC

    Head to head record is a very flawed way of looking at things when every team doesn't play each other. Half of the WAC's wins came from your top team beating our 7th ranked (KenPom) team twice and the 11th ranked team. One of those wins was only by 4 points. After that there is some separation in the WAC. The #2 WAC team (UVU) lost to the #2 MWC team (USU) by 19 points. Most of the WAC's wins over the MWC were upper level WAC teams beating lower level MWC teams (or a 1 point win by your #5 team over our worst team).

    MW Conference season is upon us

    Nevada will drop at least 1 road game somewhere along the way. They've had a lot of close games with teams that they should have blown out and one of these days it's going to cost them. They'll still win the conference but I don't see them finishing the season unscathed.

    Nevada @ 7 in latest AP Poll

    If it was an inside job then USU would be the team showing up there. Boise is the first team in the database and I'm guessing that has something to do with it.

    Nevada @ 7 in latest AP Poll

    That's something that I'm looking into. Something in the AP site code is causing CollegePollTracker to put Boise at #10 each week and we have to manually remove it. So far we haven't figured out what is triggering it. It just started happening this year.
  7. USU is more improved this year than I think any USU fan could have ever dreamed of but we still have some major holes in our line-up. This team is currently playing above their talent level.

    You can mirror a phone screen but it doesn't work well. The app doesn't have Chromecast support.

    wyoming @ hawaii

    Why do they have to make these Hawaii games so difficult to watch? No one wants to watch on a phone screen. At least make the games available on the Stadium Roku app.
  11. They are currently selling upper bowl tickets on UNLVTickets.com. Does this mean they've decided against curtaining it off?
  12. Utah State brought that many to the WAC tournaments in Vegas when they dominated the conference but it's hard for fans to spend a lot of money to support the team when you are at best an 8 seed and predicted to lose in the 1st round. If USU ever get's to top 3 in the league then numbers will be back up.

    Why Is Utah State So Hated On Here

    This is what I've never understood. BYU fans claim that independence is what allows them to play a schedule like this but that just simply isn't true. They are still playing 3 MWC opponents and 3 opponents that are below or at MWC level. That's half the schedule right there. Throw in a couple of mediocre teams from BCS conferences and then top it off with a couple of really good games. There is no reason that MWC schedule couldn't be just as good.

    Why Is Utah State So Hated On Here

    I have a brother that's lived in Murfreesboro and he didn't know anyone there that supported MTSU. Last year their attendance was lower than USU's by 3,000 even though their city population is more than double that of Logan's. Cache county has a population of 112,000 people and isn't close to any larger cities. Murfreesboro is a suburb of Nashville with over 1 million people living there. To say that the 2 Universities are comparable just isn't true. USU may be 3rd fiddle in Utah but it still has far better support than MTSU does and the national recognition is getting better. When I travel people talk to me about seeing USU play. I read a breakdown of USU's schedule earlier on the Deseret News and the section about BYU said that BYU would be coming off a game against an easy FCS opponent in Middle Tennessee State. How's that for national brand when a newspaper doesn't even know what level they play at.
