Note: The championship needs to be recognized and credited as members of The Big South Conference. CCU officially becomes Sun Belt members today (July 1).

Makes a lot of sense for 2 conferences where "markets" aren't generating a ton of TV money.
May as well "rationalize" their conference footprints and save a lot of travel money and the student - athletes need not have such long bus trips.

Actually, the AAC "American" footprint largely over-laps the Sun-belt and CUSA too !

Perhaps if and when the Big XII gets "absorbed" into a P4, and the left-overs go looking for new homes, a realignment will shake out involving:
1) Big XII left-overs
2) AAC
3) CUSA
4) Sun-Belt.

Maybe that'll be the trigger to cause such a realignment...

It makes sense, so forget about it.

What they should do is for both conferences to approach ESPN, FoxS, CBSS and the digital streamers (Amazon, Netflix) and renegotiate a new deal as two new conferences. Two conferences better than one super conference because that wouldn't solve the travel cost.

New names might be amusing as well
East: South Atlantic Conference?
West: Gulf Coast Conference?

I don't see the AAC giving up on being P6 or G5+

Right now the AAC and MWC seem to be a middle tier between the P5 and CUSA / SunBelt / MAC in terms of depth of quality football programs.

I thin that'll continue....
