Conference USA and the Mountain West are good buddies, whether they'll ever manage to pull off that merger or not. They get along so well that they're both making official conference realignment news on the same day, according to reports. On the C-USA side, there's this, with CBS Sports reporting four others are expected to join Charlotte and Texas-San Antonio:
Charlotte schedules 11:30 a.m. Friday press conference to announce move to Conference USA— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyCBS) May 3, 2012
On the MWC side, both Utah State and San Jose State beat writers are reporting Friday announcements as well. All told, eight teams should be revealed in new places on Friday, if all reports are accurate. Current FCS program Old Dominion is saying it's not quite as sold on Conference USA as has been reported, but we'll just see about that very shortly.
