Re: Southern Miss Officially

So all the at-large bids have been announced and CUSA is a one big "league" again? Sad.

Used to be a 4-bid league until the good teams left without paying exit fees.

It's true, as far as I understand things. Exit fees were owed only to the extent that media money already contracted for was impacted. Of course, no one ever cancelled a media contract with CUSA. The league just got screwed when the contracts were renegotiated.

This is why CUSA is not, and has never been, a "real" conference in the sense other conferences are.

Ever wonder why "P6" is suddenly this big, official AAC marketing thing, but when the same basic teams were called CUSA there was nothing like that? It's probably because the AAC has exit fees. They're actually trying to build something now.

Re: Southern Miss Officially

I get how we got screwed when we had to negotiate a new media rights deal with the new batch of directional schools but I saw articles where Tulane, Tulsa, etc were paying exit fees to CUSA and entrance fees to the AAC. I want it confirmed that we are still holding our charter member exit fee card and pay our original exit fee terms if/when we leave.

I've read all sorts of crap about those exit fees, both on message boards and in the print and online media. What I posted is not gospel truth, but it's the closest thing to gospel truth that I've been able to ferret out over the years. CUSA exit fees are an enigma worthy of the Kremlin, and the people you might expect to sort all this stuff out and write about it would rather do stories about Nick Saban doing the Macarena or whatever.

In any case, I doubt USM has any obligation to pay exit fees to CUSA.

Kermit Davis on his MTSU team, which he thinks is Sweet 16 caliber: "It is a tough world we live in (as a mid-major conference member). It’s a grind for us because you cannot slip up one bit. You lose just one game to a C-USA team and then all the pundits put us out."

Darn those mean old pundits!!
