I’ve said a hundred times on here already, I get why the teams at the edge of the conference want more teams in their region. We all get it, and ultimately we all want it. As much as I like to see CUSA squirm, and as amateur as they seem to be, they are not wrong in the desire to readjust the conferences. We should mirror the P5 conferences.

MW is a baby PAC12
MAC is a baby B1G
AAC should be baby ACC
SBC is a baby SEC
Let the CUSA become the baby Big XII

The Sun Belt’s the only one that doesn’t have to do a thing to get there, because it’s already run by sane people.

Agreed, but we do have a team on our edge that desires to play in a baby ACC.
Yeah App! What's with that?! Ain't nobody got no time for that!

If App State applies to the AAC and we sat on our hands, Imma start calling them “Application State”. Because I’m petty.

RE: Dennis Dodd on Regionalization Pitch
Ok, here's my Regionalization pitch...

SBC 14
EAST
Marshall / JMU /App St / CCU / Ga Southern / FAU / FIU
WEST
WKU / MTSU / Troy / USA / USM / ULM / stAte

7 SBC, 6 CUSA, 1 CAA. Solid Football, Very Regional, Checks most lists for all parties.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SWC 12 (old CUSA)
NORTH
Navy [Wichita St *]/ Tulsa
UNT / SMU
La Tech / Louisiana
SOUTH
Tulane / Rice
Texas St / UTSA
UTEP / NM St

5 CUSA, 4 AAC, 2 SBC, 1 WAC. Keeps the Privates and Navy together. Solid Basketball. Rebranding to SWC. La Tech not with ULM. Excellent travel partners.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AAC
UMass / URI *
Buffalo / Dayton *
Temple / VCU *
ODU / ECU
CLT / GSU
USF / UAB
Memphis / St Louis *

AAC Football
EAST
UMass / Buffalo / Temple / ODU / ECU
SOUTH
CLT / GSU / USF / UAB / Memphis

5 a10, 4 AAC, 3 CUSA, 1 SBC, 1 MAC. Expands "Metro" profile, Stellar Basketball.
Football has better regional divisions, maximizes payout with 10 teams.

RE: Dennis Dodd on Regionalization Pitch
Always LOLing at the idea that the biggest impediment to any regionalization pitch is La Tech can't be with ULM.

Well as realignment junkies, that's just a 101 fact. Right up there with no stAte for Memphis, no NM St for UTEP, no Marshall or WKU without a Florida school, GS and App St are Ride or Die, GSU wants peers, Liberty has too much cash, and ECU has been proposed for nearly every conference because nobody knows where they belong.

ECU belongs in a league that doesn't exist and most likely never will. It belongs in a south eastern football first league with schools that reside in college towns that have similar budgets/commitment levels and draw similar crowds to them, in the 30-50k range. Basically a miniature SEC. I understand you'll argue the Sun-Belt is building something like that, and in some ways you guys are, but App is really the only school that comes close/will get to that budget/commitment/crowd level. App has a ceiling to probably get attendance up to 35-40k and have a budget in line with ECU's or close enough, but it's not very realistic anyone else is getting to that level soon if ever. ECU always proposes regionalization when they have the power to shape realignment decisions, it's why ODU is in C-USA right now. However, when push comes to shove and they have to choose between regionalization or being in the best conference possible or being at the highest level possible it chooses the latter.
