C-USA & MWC dissolving to merge 2013: Affects new BE teams' buyouts?
http://brett-mcmurphy.blogs.cbssports.co...2/34822810

I don't KNOW anything yet, but I'm guessing the media rights buyout fee is kaput, b/c the two leagues are dissolving to void their current media contracts. Good for Memphis, since it's estimated to be (a negotiable) $6.1M.

This might also affect the conference buyout fees, but maybe that one is still enforceable? For Memphis, it's only $500K anyway, as a charter member of C-USA.

Interesting development for all the new BE teams except Navy.

i think it's a great idea, there are at least 6 solid fb teams there, good for them.

Yeah, that too. McMurphy mentioned they might wind up with 18 to 24 teams. Right now they have 16 between the two leagues, so are they planning to add as many as 8 more? That would start to affect the other FBS conferences.

Guess realignment's not exactly done yet, lol.

It's 4,864 miles between ECU and Hawaii, further than it is between ECU and London, England. LOL! 05-stirthepot

They could always add a few miles to it (to put it mildly), and play the game in Hong Kong, to try to corner the Chinese market...
