Southern Miss goofed when they essentially forced Jeff Bower to resign, I still find it odd that he never coached again anywhere after that.

CUSA was a hybrid from its inception, an amalgamation of independents, stapled to some WAC and SWC refugees.  Like the football Big East, it had fault lines that were going to get exploited when expansion and realignment fired up.

changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes, nothing remains quite the same.

C-USA has also had an amazing amount of turnover since its inception. What do Cincinnati, USF, Louisville, TCU, Marquette, and Army all have in common?

At one point, they were the catch-all conference for rowing between the Appalachians and the Rockies.  So circa 2010, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas were all CUSA affiliate members.

"Young Mr. Hayes, you think you know the answer?"

Yes, Mr. Gonz. They're all in your post!

"You're an idiot, young Mr. Hayes."

If you're choosing the Sun Belt over the CUSA, then the CUSA deserves to go away.

Choosing The Sun Belt conference over C-USA is like switching from Dollar Store to Family Dollar.

I think that's what you meant? (Lord knows DG's way better than DT.)

Also, the more of this that goes on, the more I really, truly wish college football would just separate itself from the NCAA or at least be like ice hockey, and quit farking every other sport it possibly can. The money-grabbing gimme-gimme needs of big time college football have exactly zero to do with every other sport - even men's hoops can at least be competitive without having to be beholden to a big conference.
