That 1 seed is more important than ever this year. The 2 and 3 seeds each have to battle the top 3 twice to win it all. That's a tough task.

Wouldn't WKU be the 2 seed? They beat ODU head-to-head.

It doesn't really matter as we have to play them again before the tourney. Whoever wins that one (assuming no upsets the rest of the way) will probably be the 2 seed.

I was using the Score Mobile app for standings. They may not have the correct tiebreakers in their system. I probably should have used the CUSA website.

RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
Depends if overall record is taken to account before head to head. I don't know the answer. My guess is the CUSA site SHOULD (I repeat, should) have it correctly.

How would ODU be a 2seed and WKU a 3seed. We're tied and we beat them so we have the tie breaker

RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
If it played out with higher seeds winning I would rather play ODU instead of Marshall to get to Middle....of course all 3 losing first round works. If Marshall is on they will be a hard out. The benefit of playing ODU (if Middle is next) you get use to playing a physical game and not going from a uptempo to a grind with tough defense. Neither one will be a easy win.

According to the Conference USA website, ODU is indeed in 2nd place. I guess overall record trumps head to head?

I doubt it's overall record. We did not play as strong an ooc slate as WKU.

In this instance, I think that they were taking into account fanbase hygiene.

Conference USA uses alphabetical order on its standings. They use the tiebreakers when determining tourney seeding but not on standings.

Overall record. Explain please. We play them again in a couple weeks and should we beat them it will be a moot point but if not then a true tie. I think we have a harder in conf schedule than anyone else. Play all the top teams twice. Not sure anyone else does.

I was just speculating on why the conference had ODU ahead, but the poster that said they do it in alphabetical order makes sense.

Would be helpful for the conference to actually show true standings on their official website. We shouldnt have to figure it out ourselves.

2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
While we’re talking tiebreakers you are correct with UTEP in the 12 seed as they beat Rice head-to-head and would have it “if tourney started today”.
But like the other tiebreaker, we get another shot at them (at our place this time). You can pencil us in, by the way 03-wink

RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
Went ahead and updated it for 2.11.18. Currently it appears that WKU has the tiebreaker of ODU, UNT has it over UTSA, LTU has it over USM, and UTEP has it over Rice with all of those games getting a rematch.

2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
Interesting seeing LATech & USM tied in the standings with as you mentioned a rematch scheduled AND another (projected) rematch in Frisco. Yet their first meeting was one of the most lopsided games all year in CUSA play. Probably just a case of two teams showing promising upside yet ‘consistently inconsistent’.

Here's a list of tiebreakers:

http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/c-us...eakers.pdf

So head to head is first. If we split then it'll go to win percentage against top teams. Then to overall record but it seems extremely unlikely to get to that point.

So assuming we split the games and are still tied and using current records. We're both 0fer against MT, we're tied for second so move on to fourth place which is Marshall. We're 1-0 against Marshall and you're 2-0. Both are 100% but the rules state 2-0 beats 1-0 so you'd be 2nd seed and we'd be 3rd.

The only advantage of playing all the top teams twice I guess since playing them all twice enhances your chances of having more loses.

We do. Or at least did when UAB was a top team. We play you, ODU, MTSU twice and UAB twice from the west.

ODU plays Marshall again but now it occurs to me that it won't get that far because WKU plays Middle again. If WKU wins then they have the tiebreaker (1-1 vs. 0-1). If they lose, then 0-1 beats 0-2, and ODU gets the second seed.
