Catholic 7 splitting done deal 


CBS Sports reporting they are splitting from the football playing schools. How does this affect CUSA?

I was really hoping we could host schools like Southern Miss, Marshall, Tulsa but if the new conference is started then CUSA could be poached.

I was about to post this....the fallout could be massive. Its just so hard to tell whats going to happen from here. It going without saying but MT could really benifit here or we could fall off the earth with about 30 or so other teams.

There is much discussion on what MT will do or what will happen to MT, conference-wise, on our premium boards, by the way.

Lots of insider knowledge and ongoing discussion for quite some time now (on this topic).

Didn't really state any opinions just reporting what news CBS website was saying.

There's no way further shuffling happens until 2014. We'll get a year or two in CUSA with the alignment we thought we would.

Why will there be no changes until 14? Are you saying nothing until after '14 or could the 14 season be different?

Worst case scenario - I think we end up in a buffed up version of the Sunbelt with CUSA branding.

If CUSA gets poached, they will make phone calls to the top of the SBC again (WKU, ULL, ASU).

Re: Catholic 7 splitting done deal 



So we will end up in a polished turd aka conference USA that looks like this:

MT
FAU
FIU
NT
UAB
USM
WKU
ULL
stAte
GA state
UNCC
Marshall
LA tech
UTSA

This is just my guess

If another round of call ups happens, they might not have a choice. Then again, stAte offers little when it comes to TV revenue, so I imagine that's a bigger knock against them than anything else. 

Also - there's a joke about Jonesboro and APR exemption here somewhere ... I just can't quite put my finger on it.

I would imagine WKU, Texas State, and South Alabama would be ahead of the Cajuns and stAte. Howl yeah.

I hope that's not the case. I think the further Middle can distance itself from Western, the better.
