Re: AAC raiding cusa of 6 more teams.

The MAC makes so much sense for Marshall, especially if WKU and MTSU are going.

"We miss being in the MAC" was kind of the "we miss Jeff Bower" of Marshall fans for a while.

They would be going back, hat in hand, to the metaphorical girlfriend they dumped years ago. Who cares? Loneliness is a powerful emotion.

You've got the new President coming in. Sometimes incoming leaders want to put their stamp on things.

There are some really nice campuses in the MAC, and some really good schools.

I don't think Marshall to SUNSWACUSA 2.0 is a lock. I hope they are.

The Fedora Bureau of Investigation is saying Marshall's in. I guess you just can't go home again.

Marshall in according to Brett McMurphy on twitter.

If there is no CUSA, then no parting fees, right?

Re: AAC raiding cusa of 6 more teams.

Ah, CUSA exit fees... the perpetual question since Louisville left.

I'm not convinced they exist. The way the contracts are written, I think a departing school would have to make up any money lost on existing, signed media contracts, but that's never an issue. Everyone seems to stick around until the contract expires anyway.

There were actually people on CSNBBS and probably elsewhere who thought USM would get wealthy on exit fees, run the table in CUSA 3.0, and parlay these advantages into something big.

If USM pays anything to this dying, phony conference I'll be surprised and pissed.

CUSA is almost done…..Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports just reported that the MAC is considering adding MTSU and WKU. Imagine any school considering Judy’s invite right now……..even better, imagine La Tech right now…….

USM is a founding member of CUSA. Therefore no exit fee. AmIright?

From CJUDY

Conference USA was waiting on a decision by Marshall before progressing with potential expansion by as many as four schools to bolster the embattled league, sources told CBS Sports. The Thundering Herd on Friday formally decided to join the Sun Belt, sources told CBS Sports, giving the league clarity on which direction it must head.

CJUDY "was waiting on a decision by Marshall before progressing with potential expansion"  typical CJUDY .... reactive instead of proactive... horrible leadership by CJUDY.... AAC 6 million per school ...espn.... CJUDY 400 thousand facebook.... good lord

Looks like the only thing Judy is good at is saving her job. CUSA to add anyone that has a pulse.

Re: AAC raiding cusa of 6 more teams.

This is kind of how most conferences have gone, historically. They get shittier and shittier over time but never go away.

There was a time when most of the SEC was in something called the Southern Conference. Washington, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, etc. were in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Southern Conference and the MVC still exist, as does the WAC. Outside of the SWC I can't think of a conference that's disappeared or even had to cut staff in any meaningful way. They just get worse, and it's essential for each school to have one eye on the exit.
