CBS Sports: Conference USA weighing 16-team model

Via Jeremy Fowler…

"We've modeled it at 16, and it does kind of create some divisions that are a little more geographically connected," Banowsky said. "We haven't acted on it. I think personally a larger conference is better because you get some efficiencies, you get the benefit of a bigger group. We don't want to lose our identity in the process. We're just kind of moderating the growth at a pace where people are comfortable. It could be folks are just comfortable (at 14)."

Arkansas State or Louisiana-Lafayette from the Sun Belt, which has lost several teams to C-USA, could be attractive options.

I read this too. While ULL offers the best Belt home attendance, I still like Ga. St. long term over any others out there due to the media market they represent (metro Atlanta).

I like GaSt too, but it seems as though a move to 16 would be motivated by geography. If so, then the two new additions have to come from the west.
