College Football Chronicle wants to rearrange CUSA and SBC
His idea is to create 2 geographically compact conferences. He also kicked around the idea of 3 8 team conferences.

FINALLY, someone has the courage to stick it to the man and suggest that CUSA and the Sun Belt reorganize along geographic lines!

How did we not see it after all this time? HOW?

Three works better for the schools. Two works better when you consider the sizable NCAA/CFP rules hurdles that would make the "3 conference scenario" difficult.

My comment when prompted to share my preferred solution:

Three 8-team conferences. If you are doing conferences at all (for football, as you've excluded the non-football schools in the Sun Belt), then you're doing conferences so that you can have Conference Championship Games (otherwise just lump them into a 24-team conference, heh).

You could take it a step further by breaking each conference into 4-team divisions. There is then almost infinite flexibility for who teams want to play. Teams just submit the 8-10 teams they'd like to play in a given year and a computer parses them into 4-team divisions of relatively equal strength and then schedules 5 other opponents from each team's list. Divisions are paired by geography but won by overall 8-game (9?-game) schedule among the 24-team conglomerate. After a couple years, teams will settle into a preferred 4-team division.

If the MEAC goes under and they are willing to sell their shell we may very well see what happens if C-USA and the SBC members have a chance to rearrange. 8-10 schools conceivably move over and create a travel friendly league.

Everyone, STOP what you're doing.

JFK assassination, 9/11, COVID-19. Those once-in-a-generation "where were you when..." moments. It just happened - the CFB Chronicle Youtube guy solved realignment.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm watching the breaking news right now. Is the guy of relation to Shrek by any chance?

Ok, after watching this air as breaking news on my local CBS/NBC/ABC/FOX/PBS, this YouTube realignment czar has three schools being called up to FBS.

One of the three call-ups is....

MEAC might be tougher to kill off than some people are figuring, but one thing the use of the MEAC conference under the old "membership switcheroo" is it eliminates the need to get both conferences to agree on a reshuffle ... there just have to be eight that decide they want to be in a conference with each other, and then it's up to the 16 (+2) schools in the Sunbelt and CUSA to decide how to react.

Notice how the Sun Belt average divisional travel goes up and the conference average travel for the Sun Belt goes down a whopping 49 miles. The idea that even most are going to have to big savings from this reorganization is a joke, as I've said it is.

And CFBC thinks UCA, UTC, and Liberty will be added just so you can get to 14? Hahahahahahahaha.

They have a pretty decent football program, 33rd ranking RPI in the NCAA last year is nothing to laugh at ... but I see the confusion, since in America that kind of football is sometimes called "soccer".

Someone tell him the Football Bowl Subdivision is about playing American football.

UCA didn't do too badly in American football last season. They were ranked as high as #7 in the FCS poll finishing the season with a 9-3 record. They are about 30 miles out of Little Rock so they are not in the boonies. At 10,000 seat capacity, the stadium would need an expansion, but it is a little bigger than Coastal Carolina's was when the Chants received an invitation to the Sun Belt. One of UCA's wins last season was an away game against an FBS team which ended its season at 9-4, defeated a P5 team, and went to a bowl.

War Memorial stadium in little rock is much more likely to be their home. The state legislature has been trying to find more and better uses. Probably closer to their alumni base as well for numbers. They could maybe pull it off. Although I think UA-Litttle Rock would be a better go.

That could be doable. According to Google Maps, it would be a 30 minute drive on IH 40. That's a shorter travel time than it used to take me to get from West Houston to NRG Stadium and even shorter if I drove to the Houston Cougar's stadium. 04-cheers

I'm not so sure that would work out too well. UConn's stadium in Hartford, well away from its campus in Storrs, has not lended itself well for attendance. I suppose one could argue that UCLA has done fine at the Rose Bowl, away from the Westwood campus, but that's apples-to-oranges. UCA is not UCLA.
