one problem is the conference is too spread out. Pull it closer make it easy and the destinations worth going to.

Another one is branding. We're Conference USA? SO?
No identity except, "We're conference usa". Outside of alumni, students, and fans of conference member schools who gives a crap. Heck, even the Funbelt has better recognition. And before someone wants to add "We got basketball" no one cares. And if you think they do, look at the one slot we get for the NCAA tournament.

This current conference commissioner might as well be walking around with a big purple hat with "Commissioner" on it. Doing just enough to do nothing.

Thats just my opinion. I'm sure others may have better insight.
Regionalization. Consolidation. We're gonna end up in the same league as Troy.

I fear that UAB will have a significant attendance drop next year, after the novelty of “the return” has worn off
I agree with restructuring this conference. No offense to the schools over in Texas, but that is a freaking long haul for Marshall, Old Dominion, Charlotte, and don't forget the F_U schools.
Won't happen, but SunBelt/CUSA dissolution and recreation would certainly be better - 24 teams. Have/let UTEP leave for Mountain West, add James Madison. Split into 2 12-team conferences, 1 on the east coast and 1 in the south. For recruiting, East coast gets FL and South gets TX...
I'd like to see...

UAB

MTSU
Troy
Charlotte
Georgia St
Chattanooga
LaTech
WKU
Marshall

So let's just scrap everything & join forces with a lesser conference.

This list is so depressing to someone who saw UAB play games in the same league as Cincinnati, Louisville, Memphis, etc.

Yup. Meanwhile basketball powers such as Tulane and ECU get to host Cinci, Wichita State, Uconn, Temple, and Memphis. 03-puke
