WKU Football: Tops on top of Conference USA power rankings
Dating back to our days as Wave The Red Towel, we’ve had a wonderful relationship with the small but very passionate blogging community that Conference USA has to offer.
One of the things that has been around for several years now has been the blogger CUSA Power Rankings, and over the last year or so, the SBNation site for UTEP, Miner Rush (who you should all read by the way, Alex and his crew do great work) has been at the helm of the rankings. And you’re gonna like what they have to say.
Week one is finally here, check out how our voters rank the conference before a snap is recorded.www.minerrush.com
Okay okay, I’ll spoil it for you. They picked the Tops at #1, garnering 143 total points and five first-place votes. Southern Miss (134, two first-place votes), MTSU and Marshall (129, two first-place votes) and Louisiana Tech (112) make up the top five of the preseason ballot.
The Miner Rush crew also voted the Tops to come in at #10 in SBNation’s Underdog Top 10. I guess we can’t hold that against them, though.
The Towel Rack did not participate in the preseason poll, but will vote in the coming weeks throughout the season. We’ll post our results along with the full compiled results each week this season.
How do you think the CUSA bloggers did with the first power rankings of the season? What changes would you have made? Let us know in a comment below or on twitter @TheTowelRackWKU.
