What are all of our secondary tie-ins? Just those two? How exactly do those types of tie-ins work?

I dont believe you guys have secondaries to the Liberty or Indy
He means the AAC

This is great news for the SBC. Too little, too late for WKU unfortunately. Oh well, that is the past. Good luck with the new bowls!

I like the potential matchups. I still think a game with the AAC in Little Rock made a lot of sense. As an ASU fan I would love to play Memphis or SMU so we could beat them both again but in a bowl game.

You are correct. CUSA has one thing over the SBC now with regards to bowls. And that is a bowl tie in with a P5 opponent. But most years that bowl tie in will not be a team from the P5 with a winning record.

CUSA still has more TV exposure/money (although I think that will start to even out)

CUSA has better basketball (although the gap is narrowing).

Score! Love me some Orlando! Going next month actually!!

This will likely become our top bowl. Best city (IMO) against a better opponent.

Moving to CUSA is like moving in with a recent divorcee who is getting a fat alimony check only to find out two years later when the money runs out that your old house was as nice as the one you are living in now.

The gap is narrowing?

The Sun Belt loses WKU and replaces them with a pair of sub-300 teams and that narrows the gap?

The Sun Belt as a conference next year will be SWAC bad.

The gap is narrower than it ever has been.

Sun Belt - AAC in Little Rock would have made a lot of sense with Tulsa, SMU, Houston, and Memphis all a decent drive, but the greater need was in the east.
