This conference realignment shit has to stop. Conference USA and the Mountain West have agreed to merge and become a 22 team conference. No, I'm not fucking joking.

C-USA and Mountain West teams have a tradition? Honestly though, is there that much of a tradition among those schools on the outside of the AQ scheme that it doesn't make sense for them to realign in a way that may make their programs viable in the long-term? This isn't the old Big 8 and SWC rivalries getting torn apart, this is programs that have been left out in the cold for years trying to do something to get into the big show.

I got no problem with it, but don't think a 22 team league can survive forever. It will split up soon. I could see this leading to a viable 6th AQ conference with the addition of some of the Big East teams and canibalize some of the other non-AQ schools. A conference with the likes of Boise St., Houston, SMU, Tulsa, UNLV, Southern Miss, along with the leftovers from the Big East would have a compelling case for an AQ.
