SI.COM: CUSA to Request AAC to Reorganization into two conferences
Also states AAC is aggressively targeting UAB, as well as CUSA would be interested in reorganizing with Sun Belt (with certain members on board with idea but not all).

tl;dr: CUSA proposes multiple regionalization models, and none of them involving the AAC have a snowball's change in Death Valley of getting response other than a flat "not interested".

As far as I'm aware, this is the first official confirmation that UAB and the American are having "discussions"

RE: SI.COM: CUSA to Request AAC to Reorganization into two conferences
I am curious what CUSA's end game is here by making this public. I am sure that through back channels they are going to get a flat rejection from the AAC. What are they hoping to accomplish by getting publicly rejected?

"...The three conferences—Sun Belt, AAC and C-USA—are separated by their television deals. The AAC distributes around $6 million annually in TV revenue compared to about $500,000 in the Sun Belt and C-USA. However, industry experts expect the loss of Houston, UCF and Cincinnati—three of the biggest G5 names—to adversely impact the American’s ESPN TV deal, decreasing distribution substantially."

Interesting I did not see Navy mentioned in the article. Perhaps just an oversight.

The only rational theory I can surmise is that it sounds desperate because it is. Judy is probably aware that multiple schools are on the way out, and she has to look like she did something to try and stop it.

Otherwise, it's truly moronic.

I think this is a last ditch effort by Judy to save her job. She can lord over the western half while Aresco lords over the eastern. That's what she is hoping for. In reality she is going to get tossed by C-USA once all this blows up in her face.

The proposed Western side isn't all that bad, but the Eastern side is barf. There's no way Temple, ECU, USF, and maybe Navy (not mentioned) are signing up to join forces with MTSU, WKU, Old Dominion, Marshall, and FXU.

Saw that, too. And then saying North Texas is geographically near Tulsa rather than the obvious SMU.

The only way this would work would be if ESPN promised to keep the AAC schools at their current payout. This would mean ESPN would have to give the CUSA schools a big pay raise. I doubt this would happen.

Only thing I can think is that if it's out in the public, it might get traction with some higher ups at a few AAC schools that might result in some internal pressure for the AAC to consider it, or at least counter with something more palatable. I don't know how likely, if at all, it would be to work, but we're in the "miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take" segment of the realignment dance.

If UAB is the only CUSA member that moves to AAC, then CUSA should count that as a win. Doesn’t make CUSA’s geographic scatter any better, but doesn’t make it any worse, either.

in addition to this, I think CUSA is making a ploy attempt with the American (knowing they won't go) but perhaps hoping they can entice some of the members of the Belt (and really anyone else willing to listen) to try to pursue other peers to look into their proposal.

Have to think the C-USA schools gave her the go-ahead here.

While I wasn't at all surprised to see UAB mentioned, was surprised we didn't see another name or two mentioned (might be a sign AAC still is undecided how many or who to target after UAB).

Maybe just to point again to how truly delusional Aresco is
