    Unless the the rules of CFP revenue distribution get changed you can forget about a merger.

    IMO we're stuck in the current conference configuration until at earliest 2025 when the Big XII TV contract expires.
    Hey TK! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    Not much.
    And 18 is way too dang many in a conference.

    Leaves you about zero room for OOC play assuming you are going to require some cross conference division games.

    Not overly impressed with UNC-Char/GAST/ODU and Coastal has yet to prove anything, although they may be good.

    I'd like to get Marshall - then maybe Southern Miss, LA Tech. JMU would be fine.

    But a super conference would be a mistake imop.

    If UALR forms a football team we will need another East member.

    Addition could be from the West with USA moving east in football. That would solve the USA/Troy issue in football scheduling.

    there would not be a super conference. Sun Belt and CUSA would merge and then split into east and west conferences

    jmu had a invite to the sun belt and declined the invite which is reason why the sun belt went on to look at western kentucky and coastal coastal will be better in the long run for the sun belt if jmu was added all they will do is leave at the frist opportunity they had and coastal is happy to be in the sun belt and out of the big south and is not looking to leave ( not sure anyone would take them anyway)

    only hope for jmu now is to try to get a waiver to move up like Liberty did but will need to find a place for there other teams the caa will not let them stay
