  1. Re: This is likely last chance to get long overdue merger of Sun Belt and Conference USA

    The problems with that scenario are the NCAA regulations involving conference formation. Doing what you propose would entail nearly a decade of existing without autobids.

    Not gonna happen.

  2. Re: This is likely last chance to get long overdue merger of Sun Belt and Conference USA

    From reading the article and observations I've had through the years, the main obstacles hindering a sensible realignment continue to be UTA, LR and ULM.

    Given the NCAA regulations on realignment...

    Re: Is Realignment Coming?

    There are ways around that.

    Suppose CUSA decided that the CUSA-24 model was the way to go. To grease the skids, they could waive the entrance fees, and the SBC could preemptively end their exit...

    Re: Is Realignment Coming?

    Understand that too.

    This just makes their inaction even harder to understand. They are political animals, and there is a lot of good PR to be had here for the presidents.

    Re: Is Realignment Coming?

    I'm no soothsayer. I'm just parroting what I hear from the mouths of AD's and commissioners over the years. You can't go very long without someone popping off in the media about how travel is so bad...

    Every day that passes where the CUSA expansion doesn't happen brings us one...

    Re: Is Realignment Coming?

    You're correct about the pod lineup.

    As for ulm, remember, a conference expanding can exclude anybody they want. If CUSA decides to destroy the SBC and take everybody but ulm, so be it.

    Re: Is Realignment Coming?

    Yep.

    CUSA adds NMSU and all of the SBC FB schools except ulm. That gets you 24 schools that divide up nicely into 4 regional pods.

    It's the only solution that makes sense for TV. It's the only...
