I believe 2026 football is the last year of your deal unless I missed another extension.

Totally plausible ESPN going into extension talks, would like to see moves that bolster the brand and bring some properties over from the CBSSN fold.

A MTSU/WKU add increases awareness in Nashville, an ODU add increases awareness in the Norfolk region.

Possible ESPN could make it worth your time.

WKU and MTSU fans won't like that comment. They've had talks with the MAC in the past, so there is a basis that they could have chats again, but I would think CUSA would have to be in a position of total dissolution with no other options of forming a new southeast-based conference for those schools to be willing to go that far. I don't think they would want to be the sole reason CUSA dissolved.

Also WKU/MTSU could be next in line for the AAC once Memphis departs.

It makes more sense to live off the exit fees of departing CUSA members for a few years.

CUSA 4.0 will be a marginal FBS conference no doubt.

People respect the MAC? Do they get extra CFP money or bowl bids because of it?

Last year of the TV deal is 2025-26.

What makes more sense is for the MAC to stand pat, wait for the playoff to be defined and then try to match AAC money on a reup.

Splitting the pie 12 ways while the AAC/SBC are splitting 14 is going to be an advantage because the playoff won't have a G5 performance pool. Everyone will get an equal split.

They could.

If AAC goes to 12 and takes 4 from CUSA - UAB, Charlotte, Rice, and Marshall
then
MWC and Sunbelt take 2 each - N Texas and UTSA to MWC and USM and ODU to the Sunbelt

That leaves the CUSA with a very odd couple mix of 6
FIU, FAU, WKU, MTSU, LA Tech, and UTEP

If that were to happen, you know MTSU and WKU would be pushing hard to join the MAC

If the MAC takes WKU and MTSU, I don't see how CUSA rebuilds, unless they become the FBS gateway conference for the 1AA schools that have been long rumored to be interested in upgrading.

If the AAC, MWC, and Sunbelt all take CUSA schools, will the conference have the ability to survive?
Why would killing a conference be a goal?

Not a goal more like a byproduct
College Presidents are not Internet business tycoons. They are not killing anyone.

They are pawns for ESPN, who is the business tycoon interested in killing off competition to monopolize college athletics media rights.

That is why AAC went with 6 teams to cover Memphis SMU and USF leaving.
