Listen to the interview (mp3):
Terry Holland, athletic director at East Carolina, speaks on the future of Conference USA in this radio interview:
East Carolina fans will NEVER be able to relate to the Western Division of Conference USA. A 12-team league is dangerous because it takes away from the traditional rivalries.
ECU would like to help CUSA be a BCS (Power) conference. Boise State and Utah have made great strides in proving it can be done.
The Holland Plan: Wants to see CUSA go to 16 teams and function as two 8-team leagues. Mentions that playing Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky in the East Division and going to Nashville would be better for ECU fans that going to Houston to play Houston or Rice. Contrary to popular belief, feels that Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky would add something to CUSA. Says people too often look at those schools on the surface and assume they don't add anything.
Will settle for the alignment the way it is, but does not want to play 8 league games. Would like to go down to five or six league games and make room for regional non-conference games.
