you are right and you are wrong. What Richard Giannini had to say yesterday is very significant. If BB wants to add a 12th team from the West and that only, just you watch how the rest of the league reacts.
At the top of the list of why TCU left according to our local paper (the Fort Worth Star Telegram) was because of the soon-to-be weakening of CUSA's TV package due to the loss of the schools to the Big East, and now even including the Horned Frogs themselves.

So a few on this board's answer to replacing TCU (which "WAS" the CUSA TV market in the Metroplex for all practical purposes) is to replace the Horned Frogs with non TV market schools or schools not even in the geographical mainstream of CUSA.

I'd be more concerned about the CUSA TV market shortfall in all this rather than the geography of where its next new member school(s) are located. I also think your commissioner would have been wise to have run a study of why TCU left and what can keep history from repeating itself in regards to CUSA.

CUSA should go to 14 teams for insurance because I don't think the exodus of CUSA schools is over by a long shot.

By letting Louie & Cincy go the way they are C-USA also keeps their TV deal the same.

They fit the footprint, and they could start a football team that plays in the Carolina Panther's stadium.
Believe me, it's been discussed. No dice; they're not interested - at least not enough to pursue it.

i don't understand what that means.

are you saying that cincy and louisville leaving somehow made up for the loss of tcu on the tv package? because that would make no sense at all.

by losing cincy and louisville (not to mention most of the other power bb schools), cusa's tv package is losing a lot of its value. the package may be allowed to run its course as is (is that what you mean?) if there isn't much time left on it anyway, but the next one will be adjusted down significantly.

the losses in fb will adjust it down as well - with the losses of louisville and tcu.
