    Default Conference Membership Force Feed

    Hypothetical Event.

    Louisiana finds itself joining a new conference that will have 12 teams.

    There are only 25 schools to pick from (in the whole country) for the other 11 teams.

    Only 25

    Pick 11 or what ever you can stomach

    The most common mistake people will make is selecting Middle and WKY. As much as we like them, they are going to want to stay in an eastern league wit the likes of ODU, Marshall, Charlotte and Coastal etc.

    I prefer schools that have strong football and/or baseball programs. I do not mind a geographically diverse conference.

    Agreed. We need to be in a conf with the likes of Houston, ECU, Rice, Tulsa, Cincy naming just a few.

    Never occurred to me. Yes it's a faulty poll. I'm guessing Turbine wanted to see how we'd combine CUSA & SBC.

    I feel like Boomer. The reason for the pole to me seems blatantly obvious.

    Of course, if I told you why I was doing the pole then it would taint the pole.

    Fine, I voted. I picked mine in pairs to have travel partners. Had to select UAB to get Arkansas state in, though aren't all that close.

    I did the same thing but us as travel partners with Rice and Arkansas State travel partners with La Tex.

    OK I voted. Shouldn't NMSU be on the poll since UTEP is included?

    I ended up with around 6 by picking overall athletic programs/geography. After that it was trying to find travel partners.

    Not a single one of those schools has ever shown a bit of interest in being in conference with UL. The AAC is a pipe dream for us right now. Anyone that feels like it's either the AAC or bust for us might as well get comfortable with the idea of being in the Sun Belt for a long time.

    A geographic reshuffling of the SBC and CUSA makes a lot of sense and is not out of the question for most members of those conferences. I wish we'd work toward making this happen. Something like:

    UTSA-La Tech
    UNT-Ark St
    Rice-UL
    UTEP-NMSU
    TX St-USA
    USM-UAB

    Agree would like to see that too but realistically our U offers nothing that 90% of the schools on t- bines list don't offer to a conference as well. Why would those folks want us over the rest of the entire CUSA and belt? (Please don't say baseball and softball)

    Agreed.

    What we have to hope for is that during this round of realignment the MWC does nothing.

    If they sit still, there will be enough schools on our side to get this reshuffling done.
