    On the way in I was listening to one of the morning sports shows....their football team will go independent and I would imagine they'll become essentially the east coast version of BYU without the fanfare or history.

    Another conference shift, and once again, the juggalos come out of that bathroom with nothing but their dicks in their hands.

    Better to be an independent lightweight than a member of the American Athletic Conference of American Athletics?

    Kind of telling, no?

    CUSA athletic directors have reportedly discussed trading schools with other leagues

    You can’t kill conference realignment, you can only hope to contain it.

    While a lot of the most recent talk about schools moving leagues has been related to UConn’s departure from the AAC, there have been other rumblings across college athletics of additional moves ahead of a key stretch in the 2020’s where a number of Power Five conferences renegotiate their TV deals.

    Which brings us to Conference USA. The Denton Record-Chronicle did a deep dive into the league’s upcoming 25th anniversary this season and among the great nuggets from the piece was this fascinating bit of discussion that has surfaced recently:

    Several C-USA athletic directors also said they have informally discussed the idea of the conference realigning on a more regional basis by trading teams with other leagues, including the Sun Belt. Those discussions have never progressed to the point where C-USA officially explored the possibility.

    Keith Gill took over as Sun Belt commissioner in May. He doesn’t anticipate any movement toward regionalization.

    “There haven’t been any discussions since I have been in the Sun Belt,” Gill said. “We are really comfortable with the schools we have.”

    School trades! That would truly take conference realignment to the next level and make the summer of 2010 pale in comparison in terms of drama. “We’ll give you Lane Kiffin, Florida Atlantic and a quarterback to be named later for Appalachian State. Thoughts?”

    Bring back mandatory P5... no more exceptions for BYU, Academi, etx.
    Ban FCS.
    8 conf games.
    Some incentive for coaches to actually care about OOC games. Maybe a bonus from B1G conference to staffs that win all their reg season OOC. And a penalty to school BTN revenue if they lose to mid majors.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    It looks as though the Poor Man's Texas is suing its own conference because it doesn't think its extra share is big enough.

    And the juggalos all want to add it to the AAC and "become a real P6."

    BYU is owed a great debt of gratitude for beating them this year. Can you imagine how unbearable it would have been if they had finished the regular season undefeated? They would had been crying for a playoff birth even though their best win would had been against friggin Air Force.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    I'm 100% serious with the "poor man's texas" comparison, and the AAC had better be careful of what they wish because the Potatards are every bit as much of a conference cancer as Texas.

    Well, the AAC is so spread out geographically maybe they think they need more truck drivers.
