    Default Sun Belt Commish says WKU bailing is no surprise

    Sun Belt commish Karl Benson: WKU's exit 'not a surprise'

    Western Kentucky's move from the Sun Belt to Conference USA was made official on Monday; another domino to fall in the latest wave of conference realignment.

    Conference USA likely added the Hilltoppers to replace Tusla. The Golden Hurricanes are expected to fill a void in the soon-to-be-renamed Big East -- according to CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler, it's not a matter of if, but when. The move fills one conference's need for balanced membership, but it creates another void for the Sun Belt.

    I personally don't see the appeal of the New C-USA. I think the Sunbelt has gotten a bad rap, especially considering that the New USA looks a lot like the old Sunbelt. That's okay, if they (C-USA) want to burn out their budgets on traveling costs, let them.
    MARCH ON!
