3star_recruit Posted May 21, 2003 Share Posted May 21, 2003 Correct me if I'm wrong but if the CUSA basketball schools stick together and the football schools decide to form their own conference: 1) The basketball schools would retain the Conference USA name because they are charter members. Conference USA has developed good name recognition nationally so this is pretty significant. 2) CUSA would receive whatever fees are levied against the schools who are abandoning the league. I'm not sure what the figure is for CUSA, but to pull out of the Big East a school must pay out about $1 million. Those are two pretty good reasons for the CUSA basketball schools to stick together.
