Following the departures of Tulane and ECU, Conference USA has invited Middle Tennessee St. to join. MTSU was the runner up for the spots that eventually went to Old Dominion and Charlotte.

CUSA to Add Charlotte & Old Dominion

May 1st, 2012 | By | Category: Atlantic 10 Expansion & Realignment, CAA Expansion & Realignment, Conference USA Expansion & Realignment, Featured News, NCAA Conference Expansion & Realignment

Conference USA continues to stockpile schools. It’s hard to imagine that just a few weeks ago, a merger with the Mountain West, combining the 8 MWC schools with the 8 CUSA schools was on the table. CUSA has taken their expansion a step further, going beyond the 12 school total they were set to have […]

Apr 28th, 2012 | By | Category: Conference USA Expansion & Realignment, Featured News, Mountain West Expansion & Realignment, NCAA Conference Expansion & Realignment

Once a idea of a full merger between Conference USA and the Mountain West was put aside in order to preserve NCAA tournament revenues, bids, and conference exit fees, and an economic or even football alliance was favored, it was clear that both CUSA and the Mountain West would need to pull the trigger on […]

CUSA/Mountain All-Sports Merger on Hold

Mar 26th, 2012 | By | Category: Conference USA Expansion & Realignment, Featured News, Mountain West Expansion & Realignment, NCAA Conference Expansion & Realignment

It appeared that a Conference USA and Mountain West merger would come in just a matter of time. Now, it appears to be dead. As it stands, the original plan (to dissolve both conferences and form something new) is off the table. What remains are two options: 1) Remain as 2 separate conferences with a […]

The Recap: So the ACC struck first by adding Syracuse and Pittsburgh from the Big East. The SEC followed by adding Texas A&M and Missouri from the Big 12. The Big 12 then added TCU and WVU.
