As bad as South Florida’s is, East Carolina’s is even worse (#349). Tulane isn’t much better than either of those two (#339). Cincy is at #324 which is ridiculous for them. Memphis is at #312. SMU at #274. We’re at #248. Tulsa’s at #203. UCF at #185.
So 9 of the 12 teams in the American have played an OOC schedule that rates in the bottom half of all of CBB. And we wonder why this conference struggles for bids come tourney time.
Although, the Big 12, who is considered one of the best basketball conferences in the country this year, have 5 schools that have played a schedule ranked 300 or worse, Iowa State just misses at #291, and TCU is #217.
