Any future expansion of C-USA in the works? Or a re-configuration of the Sun Belt and C-USA?

Middle Tennessee's Blue Raiders are positioning themselves quite nicely with many facility upgrades and a market thats growing be leaps and bounds.

WOW! Sebastian,you just destoryed the Big East and still made many Schools happy by putting them in the BCS. These Conferences you suggested makes to much sense for the Big Boys to go along with. But you made my day.

All 120 teams have a shot. Create eight conferences with two divisions. Division champions (16) play for the Conference Championship and the eight champions playoff for a true national championship on the field.
