given:
1. the recent NCAA decision to allow 10 teams conference to host a championship game and
2. bowl money is to conference rather than based on conference size

could there be reorganization of the G5s to become G6?
either CUSA shedding 2-4 programs
along with united activities of NMSU, Idaho, and UMass
to form a new conference
maybe add in Army and Buffalo,

C-USA needs to split for this to happen. The only catch is that there would still be 62 members in the G6, so the payout cap couldn't be lowered to 10 million per conference without harming the American (who presumably no one is leaving).

Could there even be more than 6?

1. AAC
2. MAC
3. CUSA split
4. CUSA split
5. MWC
6. SBC
7. WAC

If everyone had 10 schools...that would total 70. Which is....what? about 8 more schools to add?? ...besides UMass and Army there are these schools waiting in the pipeline:

1. JMU
2. North Dakota St
3. E. Kentucky
4. Liberty
5. Missouri St
6. Sam Houston
7. Lamar, Illinois St, E. Washington, Jacksonville St, Towson, Delaware??

The WAC could scratch together a group of that 8 to form a conference, if all the pieces fell together correctly.

I can definitely see a G6 within the realm of possibility. If you split C-USA and add 6 my gut says that 5 are from the Sunbelt and the sixth is James Madison. The remaining Sunbelt schools, which likely include Coastal Carolina, Appalachian St, Georgia Southern, Troy, and ULM likely grab NMSU for full or partial membership and possibly Idaho and UMass for affiliates at least until they can fully restock with regional FCS schools.

G7 is a little harder to achieve. The seventh league would likely have a western US footprint. To make that happen NMSU would need to be involved and not part of a Sunbelt rebuilding program. Perhaps if C-USA West convinced UNM to be part of their league and rather than replace them the MWC booted Hawaii to get to 10, Idaho, NMSU, and Hawaii could find 7 ambitious FCS schools to partner with.

I don't see anyone in the American or MAC spinning off to form a new conference or being lured elsewhere unless UConn was interested in forming a Northeastern league with UMass, Temple, Army, Navy, and Buffalo at its core but I find that unlikely considering the strength of the American.

Has anyone heard any clamoring anywhere in C-USA lately concerning becoming more regional that would indicate that they are entertaining a split?

San Jose St is the next weakest program. Like is said in my post, the only way I see reducing to 10 is if New Mexico joined C-USA West and then they dropped Hawaii. I don't see anyone volunteering to be relegated to a league with NMSU, Idaho, Hawaii, and 6 FCS schools.
