CUSA’s Last Hoorah

“Conference USA will have one last hurrah as a relevant league before the aforementioned teams depart. C-USA will also say adios to Charlotte and Saint Louis, off to the Atlantic 10, and TCU, which will relocate to the Mountain West. Memphis remains as an anchor, but the additions of Central Florida, Marshall, Tulsa, Rice, SMU and UTEP will lead to a decrease in NCAA Tournament bids.”

Definitely need to save that one for the Memphis people. Last hurrah as a relevant league is harsh, yet so accurate. :lol:
