Just because they are taking a school from the Sun Belt does not mean they'll take two, CUSA reached into the FCS and pulled out ODU, UNCC, plus UTSA (the newest FBS team and youngest program). Losing ECU may get them to go after a small market team that's a highley successful in the FCS like App State or Georgia Southern.

EDIT: Nevermind lol

Just heard that MTSU & FAU were headed to cusa. If it is true, then I think it's a great move. CUSA gets Nashville, and FIU is reunited with FAU. But if I was in charge I would pick Georgia State over FAU, just so I could tap into Atlanta, but that's just me.

I guess this means that Southern Miss will be moving to the western division.

Yeah, I would agree that Southern Miss goes west. MTSU and UAB ae a few hundred miles to the east.

MAN, C-USA didn't mess around, did they ? Boom ! Boom ! Done !!!

I'm thinking Benson might quickly move to add replacements to the Sun-Belt.
Back in June, Appy State and Georgia Southern were reportedly on deck for #13 and #14. They seem like they could fit right in there now as #11 and #12.

New Mexico State and Jacksonville State (Alabama) will be calmoring for attention, but probably to no avail.....

After App St and GA So, my money would be on NMSU and Lamar over Jville St. The SBC already has two schools in Alabama so I don't see much benefit of a third. Lamar would be another Texas school to pair with Texas St and its on the border of Louisiana so that would also help out ULL/ULM with travel $s.

Thought it was odd that NMSU would get invited to a conf. w/ UTEP

Quote:
NMSU AD McKinley Boston: “We have not had contact with Conf. USA. I've never seen anything as volatile as (conf. realignment) in long time.”
