    Pro: Lower travel costs.

    Con: Having more than one school from the same state can sometimes take a toll on both schools identity.

    Great rivalries can be created when fans of each school are within driving distance of each other. That happens in regional conferences. It doesn't happen when schools are located across the country from one another.

    I know that airlines buy future fuel and sometimes come out very well---but when it quits these guys with distant rivals are gonna hurt with travel---NO-Miami is not too bad and that is our biggie I think for FIU and FAU

    Anybody know what teams for the Cajuns fly to what games in the different sports???
