C-USA can do much better than NMSU as a replacement for UTEP if they leave. I'd rather have any program in the Sunbelt or James Madison.

I see the possibility of CUSA contracting to 12 as a possibility too.

CUSA could lose UTEP AND also lose a school to AAC, if AAC needs to re-stock after one of he Big XII scenarios.

I think a lot of these conferences are preparing themselves to react quickly, following whatever Big XII does in early June.

Contraction wouldn't be a bad move for C-USA. Personally, I think C-USA would be better off splitting into two regional conferences and using Sunbelt and FCS schools to fill the ranks than trying to maintain a footprint spanning the entire southeastern United States. The MAC is a very compact regional conference and they get by just fine.

Horrible tv market for the AAC
Try Army or Umass.

Say Big XII takes BYU and Cincy.

IF (BIG IF), Army wanted to come in for FB only (same deal as Navy), AAC could go to 12 + 2, meaning they would need to replace Cincy and add #12 (Navy is currently #12, but for FB only).

So for 2 full-time new members, UMass would likely get a look, plus a few CUSA schools. Yeah, Hattiesburg, MS is not a major media market, but a lot of SEC schools are in small towns, yet the school has a rabid following of locals, alumni, etc.

Replacing schools in the American is a tricky thing to try to predict. I think maintaining attractive markets is a major motivator. there seems to be a degree of old C-USA loyalty that factors in but I just don't see Hattiesburg making the cut. UMass or UTSA could definitely infuse the American with a fresh top 35 market.
