CUSABBS Avoid Please
If anyone has the idea to go over there and bid them a fond farewell DON'T! They are so toxic over there, just let them be. The sooner we leave them alone the sooner they forget about us and start attacking each other. Believe me, you're not gonna get any pats on the back and thanks for the memories over there.

Lets just move on and leave the drama for their mama!

I was planning on doing it after our official end date but not now. I'll probably leave a comment then be done. I've just posted on the Sun Belt board for months now.

Thunder was being nice. And I tried to be. But the Jacksonville fan, whose business it was really none of, opened his cakehole. So I let him have it and it went off from there. I think that was one of three posts I've made there in months. If Thunder wouldn't keep going there out of some misguided nostalgia I wouldn't have to keep bailing hm out.

I agree that we need to stop going over. CUSA is in our rear view mirror now, and we need to keep them there.

Crazy to think of the blood, sweat, and tears required to get into C-USA for it to all end like this.

We put our time in... CUSA made some money off of us. Now we can reap some rewards of being in purgatory.

90 percent of CUSA's mistakes can be traced back to actions by their own schools. If you chase markets in realignment, and spend considerable amount of time targeting high level TV deals without considering who you are inviting, these things happen.

Marshall and Southern Miss are a prime example. At one point AState fans actually wanted our school to be more like Marshall and Southern Miss, None of us ever considered we'd get a chance to be league mates. And then slowly, every advantage you guys had vanished because CUSA kept pairing you with schools you had no relationship with and tried to force a rivalry out of you, all for the sake of a few TV dollars.

Money starts to dry up, teams start to struggle, and suddenly you guys were faced with a choice of playing with Liberty, rejoining the MAC, or joining the Sun Belt. A decision few would have ever considered 10 years ago.

How did we pick exactly the worst schools from the Sunbelt? It's like you guys held them up a little higher so we'd pick them. Jedi mind trick or some ****. But we literally ended up with the worst, self-serving garbage teams in CUSA.

All of those big city schools have an over inflated perception of themselves. I mean Charlotte can barely get 10k people in their stands but they think they are Clemson. FAU has a HS basketball arena but they think they are the Florida Gators. North Texas... SMH. What are the other schools? I feel like I'm overlooking a couple. Oh well. Not our problem now.

Nah, it was a MUCH different CUSA when we joined. NO ONE could have predicted the collapse of the Big East. It was the correct call for us... a no brainer.

Not many remember this, but each of the schools added to CUSA had measures of success early in the Sun Belt. Its just that recent results showed a downhill trend, that everyone but the schools themselves saw coming.

North Texas won 4 straight Sun Belt Titles from 2001 to 2004, and then didn't sniff a bowl the next 7 years.

FAU had won the league in 09 and had finished 2nd to Troy multiple times but had begun to struggle by 2011.

FIU was being driven to some success right before they moved thanks to some dude named TY Hilton, who was a year away from the NFL Draft at that point.

MTSU had zero league titles but numerous top 4 finishes when they left, but results were becoming less consistent.

The best add Ironically was WKU, who got passed over at first primarily because they struggled to win a dang game for two years before beginning to climb. Making a Bowl in 2012 and making a title run in 2013.

More than likely he just doesn't understand how it all works. Kind of like that Tanq guy that would quote a post but respond to someone that wasn't quoted. 03-lmfao

There was nothing wrong individually with any of the expansion teams in 2013-2014. The problem was building an entire conference around potential and markets. Like it should have been FAU or FIU and Charlotte or Old Dominion, not all of them. The West still kept some core teams from pre-alignment, so they had some wiggle room but the East was eventually just Marshall. And it sucked.

You know the big market schools will also never be satisfied. They will always have one eye open looking at the illusion of green grass somewhere else. And think they deserve it because of their city. The biggest followed schools in the nation are in podunk towns or at least not the main cities or capitals. There are exceptions of course, like Ohio State. Teams like USM and Marshall just want good competition and like-minded conference mates. That's why both were so unhappy in CUSA once the true, named teams left. Everyone else came in with something to prove to get up and out.

We would have been happy in the AAC with old conference mates, but not in the direction they took. I think they should have taken USM, Marshall, LaTech, and UAB. ODU would have made a good 5th team if needed. But that was as close as they could get to maintaining some sort of brand recognition. They lost all branding with their current choices. I'm happy, now, it sorted the way it did. Very happy. But there was a serious wtf moment there when they announced. I knew the SBC was the best option and they moved fast, but feeling stuck in that shithole for even a moment was a fankiller. Like I would have given up and found someone else to root for kind of fankiller. And no, it would not have been WVU. Never them.
