Joe, there's already scuttlebutt about C-USA already having had discussions with Temple. Other schools being tossed around on various boards have included UMass, Middle Tennessee, FIU, North Texas, Troy and UTSA.

What I'm reading from various sources is that the merger is almost complete. UTEP seems headed to the Mountain West side in a 9-team division (Hawaii football only) and the C-USA side would likely pick up 2 schools. Most speculation has them taking in Temple (Philadelphia TV market) and FIU (Miami market) to try up the league in its upcoming TV negotiations.

Add NMSU to CUSA and you have a travel partner for UTEP and the isolation point is no longer valid!
