Commentary: SBC/CUSA Merger?
I'm still not sure I want to give up our eastern SBC schools just to get with UNT and UTEP for example.

I'd have to be convinced.

Giving up App State (around 650 miles away) and GaSo in exchange for UNT and UTEP (around 1100 miles away, geographic outlier) is a step down in Football . . does not sound like a great idea to me. 05-mafia

Why?
Because the CUSA teams found out what most of us believed to be true?
What benefit would it be for us? More $$? More exposure? Not sure it's worth it.

These ideas are still rearranging deck chairs...
Would it be worth $2 million to move?

No matter how you repackage it, the product is still the same.

Are there be any schools that the SBC should try to take from CUSA?

We're going to be at a point, in 2018, where each team would get at least a $1 mil cfp payout because of the ccg deregulation. They're not trying to go past 10 teams...not really. No disrespect to NMSU and Idaho...

If I were the King of the Belt, I'd highly considering adding two of any of these three from CUSA: USM, UAB, Marshall. The brands should easily increase the TV money and possibly increase bowl and CFP payouts per school to more than pay for their additions.

I like Marshall but it's a little bit far from schools like Texas St. USM would be ideal. Not sure how I feel about UAB. Rice would be a decent add.

UAB almost self-imposed the death penalty and is basically infected by a hostile virus.

I'll say once again that I like MTSU...they will give a boost to all 3 major sports and make a reasonable trip for many of the current SBC schools.

I like them too, plus it allows us into Tennessee for recruiting.

I'll pass. They chose CUSA, they can stay there.
