BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Fittingly, on the day Memphis left Conference USA, UAB and Southern Miss played each other in basketball. It was a thorough UAB victory over the league's first-place team.

Forget this year's standings. It's time to look at the big picture.

UAB and Southern Miss are joined at the hip now. Their futures are being determined by others as the haves and have-nots get divided, the original C-USA now down to UAB, Southern Miss and Tulane. UAB's old Great Midwest Conference rivals? All gone. Central Florida, Houston and SMU will join Memphis in the Big East, too.
