FIU North Texas among others to C-USA

WOW just wow and just like that we get left face down in the mud by our main rival. This is awful for our program not only are they going to a better conference ours just got way worse and we lose maybe the conference games most our fans look forward to.
Remember when i was saying we need to fire Howard because college football is about who is hot right now who is winning now, but we had to let Howard stay those last couple of years well here you go Howard will have plenty of seats to choose from when we are playing school like Lamar and Jackson state in Sun belts games.

SUCKS big time if true! And adding UTSA who have not even played a FBS game and to be considering Charlotte who don't have a team yet…..

It is all about what have you done for me lately, but UNT hasn't exactly set the world on fire since we've joined the belt. Just comes at a bad time for us. 1st yr coach, still no AD. I wouldn't expect FAU to stay behind for long. I bet if true Melissa Dawson is working the phones and seeing what she can do.

I have more faith in her than I did Angelos

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

If you blame anyone for this its Angelos, not Howard. UNT has SUCKED since 2006 really. The fact is, Dallas is fertile recruiting ground, just like SoFla, so they wanted to add teams with good media markets and good recruiting. They obviously only cared to take one south florida team and if I remember the quote from CA: "we'll sit back and see how this shakes out" was not an aggressive enough strategy to get to CUSA. Pete Garcia is a hell of a lot better at his job than CA was, period.

The AD we hire is HUGE. Hire the right guy and we can find ourselves in a better conference in a hurry.

Remember that nothing's official yet. But considering their location in Miami, continually-improving academic status and an enrollment >47k students, FIU certainly has one over us here  :(

If this were true, I just wonder if we would continue the Shula Bowl and BTBIR games… or if they'd cut and run, abandoning this growing rivalry.

Furthermore, I don't think Melissa Dawson can really do anything to make our case for another conference. I would think she has too many other balls in the air right now.

Right. It was an absolutely moronic strategy.

So let's just run the table in the Belt and get invited next year. They can always add more teams.
