And CUSA picks up UTSA, Akron, and UNT all of a sudden CUSAMWC seems like a lot smaller step up from WAC/MAC/Sunbelt than it is currently.

If The Merger does this correctly they can end the WAC, cripple the MAC, and Sunbelt still won't be much of a factor

So the plan is to cripple the MAC by taking Akron?

Go ahead and take Akron. The MAC will respond by adding James Madison and come out a better football conference than before.

I think he's saying taking Akron is not doing this correctly.

No the plan is to make the MAC an inferior conference by taking Temple, NIU, Ohio/Toledo

There is only one conference more inferior than the new Big East...

Take teams that will make us money - fine. But neutering doesn't help us.

If you neuter those conference, that means less TV money for them and more for The Merger

Yep.

It will be hard to "cripple" the MAC with the insane amount of market redundancy that exists within the conference.

You can go ahead and take Toledo, the MAC still has Bowling Green in basically the same market.

You can take Ohio and Toledo and the MAC still has 4 other Ohio based schools to work with. You can take Northern Illinois and the MAC will just upgrade Illinois State in its place.

NIU and Toledo may be the best 2 MAC football teams but they are the two worst MAC basketball teams. Ohio is the best overall in football/basketball but its in the smallest market.

To be honest the WAC/SBC/MAC aren't making any TV money anyway.

Says the purse lady.

No need to take teams to make it inferior. It already is.

Without looking at prior comments...I believe the most likely school to get picked up is (wait for it)...Akron.

They have a name, location, that is brimming with potential growth and success, but their football is death walking among the living. It needs a miracle.

I'm not going to sit here and argue with you that the MAC an already irrelevant conference would be a force after losing its top 3 teams... It would take them 10 plus years to recover
