American Athletic Conference
East: Appalachian State, Central Florida, Cincinnati, East Carolina, South Florida, Temple
West: Houston, Memphis, Navy (FB only), SMU, Tulane, Tulsa
NFB: Wichita State

Conference USA
North: Charlotte, Coastal Carolina, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, Western Kentucky
South: FAU, FIU, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Troy, UAB

Sun Belt Conference
East: Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, South Alabama, Southern Miss
West: New Mexico State, North Texas, Rice, Texas State, UTEP, UTSA
NFB: Little Rock, Texas-Arlington

Now everyone's happy.

Fairly clean, but it leaves South Alabama in a different conference than Troy and UAB. I don't think there's any way South Alabama prefers the Sun Belt to CUSA in that setup. I'm also pretty skeptical that Southern Miss or Louisiana Tech would agree to that; they're probably the biggest road blocks in that they won't agree to be in the same conference with the other Louisiana schools.

This. There are a number of creative ways the conferences could address travel issues, which seem to be the main qualms with the current alignment.

I think more than half of both conferences should drop to FCS were they belong...

I dunno, seems like a win for everyone. For the Cajuns in particular, they get some additional regional opponents (La Tech, Southern Miss, Rice) plus greater access to Texas. What more do you want?
