In 2010, Conference USA ceased issuing a preseason poll, and continues to be the only conference in America that doesn’t. The decision is questionable since it deprives the member teams and the media that cover them of a noteworthy blurb leading into the season.
In order to fill the void, kenpom.com commissioned an expert panel to rank the conference’s twelve teams. The panel consisted of USA Today’s Dan Wolken, CBSSports.com’s Matt Norlander, UW-Superior head coach Paul Eberhardt, and 23 other randoms on twitter. But anyone willing to make the effort to rank C-USA teams from 1 to 12 is someone that truly cares about the conference, so don’t disrespect the randoms.
