I found some interesting stuff as it relates to UAB and CUSA.

This next link has a vid of the team learning at a meeting of the closing of football at the university.

I think the best option is to drop UAB and stay at 13. This leaves them the option of bringing the Blazers back if they restart football but it also increases the slices of pie for the other 13 schools. It also makes the basketball side of things less crowded and increases the tournament bid chances for schools like UTEP, ODU, LA Tech, and WKU who are solid midmajors but in a large league that no longer has the strength needed to earn at-large bid consideration.

I think the next best option, if the league is insistent on having an even number of members, is to admit someone like Arkansas St, UL Lafayette, or South Alabama that can be slotted in the West to preserve the geography of the conference and ease the travel situation. I'm not a fan of making MTSU or a Florida school play in the West. Why should a new member get to inconvenience the travel and jeopardize the rivalries of an existing member of the league? Arkansas St and UL Lafayette are the proven cream of the crop in the Sunbelt and South Alabama is a growing program that is making great strides and has a modest market.
