Yeah 8 is minimum number for sponsoring various sports.

I was talking about something different however.

When you have schools moving in and out of a conference, you have to have so many together for a certain period of time for continuity.

For instance, if you had an 8-team conference called the ABC Conference, and 4 schools left and 4 replacement schools came in, the NCAA would say:
This NEW ABC Conference doesn't have sufficient continuity of member schools, it is essentially a NEW conference, and oh by the way, your automatic tournament bids are gone....

So if there were whole-sale changes in re-arranging the SunBelt and CUSA, they'd have to pay attention to that OR get a waiver from the NCAA (which involves approval from some committee made of people from other conferences who WOULD likely approve it, if they felt it was for the good of college sports in general).



I thought they did away with the continuity component. I think that ABC Conference would be fine as long as they replaced 4 schools leaving with enough members to be considered a conference (6).

For example... when the Big East split, the American didn't have eight continuous members. They had only FIVE (UConn, Rutgers, Louisville, Cincinnati, South Florida). But they kept their autobid because Temple, Memphis, UCF, SMU, Houston joined in 2013; and ECU, Tulane, Tulsa joined in 2014 (replacing Rutgers & Louisville).

Good point. Maybe the NCAA did away with it, OR it's not a big deal to gain a waiver...

Clearly the AAC did NOT have that continuity.
The only teams that remained through the whole ordeal were UConn, Cincy, and USF.
