CUSA/MWC will have a joint announcement tonight. Very possible that they will merge.

Not good for us.

Why? We're not going anywhere and this move probably ensures that no Sun Belt team get plucked away by C-USA. Keeping this conference together is our best chance at this point.

True...

How do y'all think the bowl picture will look with this combination of the two conferences?

It could either be really good for the belt or really bad.

The Good: It would free up a couple more bowl games for the belt to play in...

The Bad: Could dry up all the bowls for us, except the N.O. Bowl. Maybe even getting that one as well.

ESPN is reporting as Breaking News on the Bottom Line that the two conferences wil merge for football only with an Eat and West division and playoff game.

How long before the Sunbelt and the MAC form a North/South type large non-AQ league?

With Wrong Waters leaving, it might happen.

Not very impressed, especially when the best leave MWC. Question is - what two teams (or more) will be plucked from the Sunbelt?

I bet you a beer that it won't be TROY...

If UCF leaves for the Big East, C-USA will add FIU. If ECU leaves, App St or Charlotte may be there. Lose a Texas school, we add UTSA. I don't see how Troy fits into the picture.
