R1b is the most common haplogroup in western Europe (please see distribution maps), so it is not surprising that it is the most frequent haplogroup in the CUPP project.  R1b is the haplogroup believed by some to have populated Europe from an Iberian refugium when the last glacial ice sheet retreated about 10-13,000 years ago, however the history of R1b is hotly debated, and research on it is active and ongoing.
Of the many haplotypes represented within R1b, the most common 12-marker haplotype is called the "Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype."  FTDNA members whose 12-marker haplotype matches one of the four most common 12-marker R1b haplotypes will find they have a "WAMH" logo on their member page, along with probably thousands of matches at this level.  The nearer one's results are to the R1b modal (top row in the tables below), the more markers one needs to test to be confident the match isn't just coincidental.  I have standardized on 67 markers for all my projects as the most generally reliable testing level, and it's the minimum in Hg R1b.

Because coincidental matches are such a serious problem in Hg R1b, I recommend anyone in this haplogroup be deep SNP tested by taking the "Geno 2.0 Chip" test (as shown on the "Y-DNA Haplotree and SNPs" tab of your FTDNA member page), as a further way of identifying coincidental matches.  I also recommend joining the Haplogroup 

In biology, a "deme" is defined as "a group of related organisms living in a single location," as would be the case for the European progenitors of our families, so I use this term to designate different families in the project.
So far, four project members are some form of Haplogroup R1b,
each representing a different genetic origin for the surname.

Martin7, Friedrich6, Friedrich5, Matthaeus4, Joh. Martin3, Matthaeus2, Hans1 KOPP (1620-1712) of Jagstkreis, Württemberg, Germany
Our subject has no significant matches at any level with surname KOPP or variation.  He has only a few near matches at 25 markers in other surnames (23/25), which are not promising and will most likely fall away as more markers are tested.  While there is no urgency that our subject upgrade his markers, I recommend that he upgrade to 67 markers in anticipation of the day when he finally gets a significant match at 25 markers.

Our subject has a common haplotype with over a thousand low level matches and even some high level ones all in other surnames.  He has no match, at all, with anyone surnamed CUPP or variation.  While we're waiting for a significant match, I recommend our subject upgrade to 111 markers to gain separation from his near matches at 67 markers.
Our subject has tested just the one SNP:  Z16434, which was positive.
Based on circumstantial evidence, there is a strong probability that out subject's earliest ancestor is one of the KOPP/CUPPs who moved from Mason Co., KY, to Franklin Co., IN.  I urge our subject to seek out a descendant of these CUPPs for Y-DNA testing to find out if you match.

For 12 markers: 9 or less is a non-relative; for 10-12 markers, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 25 markers: 21 or less is a non-relative; for 22-25 markers,
For 37 markers: 31 or less is a non-relative; for 32-37 markers,
For 67 markers: 59 or less is a non-relative; for 60-67 markers,
For 111 markers: 100 or less is a non-relative; for 101-111 markers,
