Tulsa will be leaving C-USA for what will become known as the America 12 conference. The america 12 will look like this next year and going forward

2013

1. Louisville 1 year then move to ACC

2. Rutgers 1 year then move to Big 10

3. Uconn

4. Cincinnati

5. USF

6. UCF

7. Temple

8. Memphis

9. SMU

10. UCF

2014 they add

1. Tulsa all sports

2. ECU as of now just football though imo should be all sports

3. Tulane

2015

Navy for football only

C-USA in 2014 now will look like

1. FIU

2. FAU

3. MTSU

4. N.Texas

5. La.Tech

6. S.Mississippi

7. Rice

8. UTEP

9 Old Dominion {though they join in hoops next year C-USA will be a 16 team hoops league}

10. Marshall

11. UAB

12. UTSA

In 2015 UNC Charlotte joins in football {FYI they join in hoops in 2013 as well}

Look for C-USA to go after either Arkansas State or Western Kentucky for the 2014 season Then the sun Belt will likely go for Lamar or Jacksonville State possibly Liberty, James Madison Or tennessee chatannooga

As of 2013 there will be 125 D-1 teams. In 2014 128 D-1 Teams By 2015 129 D-1 teams. Thats of course as of right now

Well boys if i confused you don't feel bad i have a hard time keeping up too. Your thoughts?

Boys i forgot something apparently Sam Houston state is being considered for the Sun Belt as well. And WKU's administration just informed all student athletes that 2013 will be their last year in the sun belt so it looks like WKU will join C-USA

I need to get a life

This certainly will dilute the quality of the FBS and permit top
tier teams once again to pad their record by playing marginal
competition.

but remember this wiseguy with the 4 team playoff coming up after next year teams will be penalized by the selection committe for playing fcs teams. On paper it'll be better for these schools to join d-1. remember the big 10 will quit playing fcs teams after 2014
