I think where you’re mistaken is assuming any of those schools has to choose between east or west. They can grab MTSU and a few Sun Belt schools and make a nice, regional conference in the center of east and west. “But what about the schools on east and west sides?” That’s not really our problem to worry about.

My bad. Yes, UTSA should be in this new conference. To satisfy La Tech, I’d dump ULL and add NutsaK.

New Mexico State
Texas State
Rice
UTEP
Arkansas State
North Texas
Louisiana Tech
UAB
Southern Miss
UTSA

RE: New Conference
The reason this will never happen is because CUSA and the Belt would have to agree on the teams. Both new conferences must be a 12-12 split with equal TV money and an NCAA autobid while being aligned geographically.... Thats a tall order.

Why must they agree? It seems an airport meeting is in order.

I don't think any...or at least most of the schools don't have the money...and don't 6 teams have to have played together for 7 years or something?

RE: New Conference
Starting a new conference is impractical. Won't happen for too many reasons. Improving the conference we have should be the goal. We can't kick anybody out either. What's done is done, unless you're really bad, like Temple was, to get kicked out of the Big East, so that isn't going to happen.

We all want tighter geographic divisions to save travel costs. You could do that by adding schools, but there would need to be added incentive, like more revenue from an extra game or two. If you could pull-off a 4-team playoff for a C-USA swelled to 18 members and 3 divisions, you might have something.

WKU, MTSU, Marshall, ODU, and Charlotte is a solid grouping. App State and ECU WOULD fit there well, and the Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana schools could be tight as well, but the politics are screwy.

First, UTEP doesn't want NMSU in C-USA with them. La Tech doesn't want ULaMo in C-USA with them. I think they're apathetic to ULaLa. UAB doesn't want Troy or USA in C-USA. I could start pointing to AAC schools, but that would be REALLY boring. (I mean, UCF would just die if it was associated with FAU or FIU. LOL! too soon?)

I like the idea of going big, really big eventually. Your eventual goal is to swallow the bottom of FBS and NOT separate from the P5 schools. That way you control the growth of FBS, consolidate TV markets, and push a massive voting block.

This would truly be the biggest and most depressing change. We would hand 80% of the p5 a L as it sits today. Yet we barely get a at large opportunity. The top of most g5 conferences have to win the ccg to get in. It is slowly going that waycompared to football but I've kind of give up on that. But hopefully basketball can stay at least remotely pure, or at least no less than it is now.

RE: New Conference
Maybe schools that lose money on bball would be open to dropping it? It's obvious who cares and doesn't and there is no shame in it. If you're a football school just field football. Split the teams up with those that want to go all in with football only and drop bball. Is that even possible with title ix? I'm just spouting nonsense anyway.
