Anyone have any idea how much Sunbelt schools make with their deal? At this point the 14 C-USA and 10 SBC football schools should just merge and then divide into 2 regional 12 team leagues. At least then they'd cut down on their travel budgets. Any sort of prestige that C-USA had left with the 7 schools who moved to the American.

The problem with a C-USA/Sun Belt reshuffle is that Louisiana Tech categorically refuses to be in a conference with ULM, and will still try to dodge Louisiana (ULL) as well.

In all honesty, the best case is that the Big 12 goes to 14 with Memphis, Cincinnati, South Florida, and Central Florida. The American then grabs FAU, FIU, Western Kentucky, and Middle Tennessee. C-USA then stops at 10.

AAC West - Houston, SMU, Tulsa, Navy, Tulane, Middle Tennessee
AAC East - Connecticut, Temple, Western Kentucky, East Carolina, FAU, FIU

CUSA - UTEP, Rice, North Texas, UTSA, Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, UAB, Marshall, Old Dominion, Charlotte
SBC - Texas State, Arkansas State, ULL, ULM, South Alabama, Troy, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, App State, Coastal Carolina

At that point you may be able to execute a swap - The Sun Belt adds Marshall, Old Dominion, and Charlotte in exchange for Texas State, Arkansas State, and either Louisiana or South Alabama:

CUSA - UTEP, Rice, North Texas, UTSA, Louisiana Tech, Texas State, Arkansas State, ULL/USA, Southern Miss, UAB,
SBC - ULM, USA/ULL, Troy, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, App State, Coastal Carolina, Charlotte, Marshall, Old Dominion

LA Tech does realize that there are Group of 5 conferences where two or three schools from the same state play nicely together--there's even Ohio, where six schools all play in the MAC and no one dies! Gasp!

If C-USA East decides to bolt and add eastern SBC teams and JMU then LA Tech might not have much of a choice.

True, but the whole point is that it's easier to claim superiority by being in a "better conference" than to take the playing field and risk your status in a title bout.

The history of college sports is litered with this. Just look at the original Big East, where Villanova, Georgetown, Syracuse, Providence and Boston College were strong-arming Temple/St Joe's, GW, St Bona, Rhode Island and UMass.

Bona vs Syracuse was an even rivalry til the Big East formed. Then suddenly going to Bonaventure was beneath them. The Orange haven't visited the Reilly Center since Konstantin Chernenko was leading the USSR.

Exit fees like these are getting absurd. If C-USA, as a conference, cannot provide member institutions with the same kind of payouts that were expected schools should have the right to pursue their options elsewhere. it makes no sense to field a conference with a footprint as large as C-USA's for that revenue.
