« Friday noon press conference at the Stadium Club. Could it be about...? | Main | Football game times for Arkansas State home game, FAU; Gniadek Sun Belt Pitcher of the Week »

The answer was D)

A few quick things from this afternoon's official announcement that FIU would be joining Conference USA:

*The FIU-FAU football game is up in the air after 2012 because FIU doesn't know how many conference games it'll play and has other committments to honor.

*Mario Cristobal looked terribly happy. As he said, recruits like exposure for themselves and to know their families can see them on TV if they can't make the game. C-USA's TV deals are much better than the Sun Belt's.

*Pete Garcia pointed out that despite the closest school being Alabama-Birmingham or Southern Mississippi, travel costs actually could wind up better for FIU because teams can fly into major airports instead of flying in and going for a bus ride.

 *The Sun Belt issued a statement from commissioner Karl Benson that both FIU and North Texas "were cooperative and kept and open line of communication throughout the process."
