    The Top Ten Things You Didn't Know About Conference USA

    Louisiana Tech will become a member of Conference USA in 2013. After ten years of dicussions, arguments, and careful research, most people on this board know a great deal with Conference USA and its teams. However, there are some details about CUSA and our new conference mates that you may not be aware of.

    Here are the top ten things you may not know about Conference USA:

    10. UAB is thinking about naming the possum as their new mascot, because they play dead at home and get killed on the road.

    9. When reviewing applications for conference expansion, the CUSA Commissioner was quoted as saying, “What the hell is a Warhawk?”

    8. CUSA believes that “loose lips sink ships”. As a result, CUSA has prohibited any females from Bernice from ever boarding any of their holiday cruises.

    7. During a recent visit to the CUSA offices, Tulane University athletic officials had to be shown what the candy bowl looked like by the receptionist, because Tulane hasn’t seen a bowl in years.

    6. UT-San Antonio’s football team was awarded the Barack Obama Medal of Excellence for being promoted from the FCS ranks to CUSA after only one year of mediocre experience on the job.


    5. Contrary to popular belief, the Marshall Thundering Herd was actually named after the local Phi Mu chapter.


    4. The quality of Conference USA football will decline by 10% when Houston leaves the conference; however, it will also increase by 35% when Memphis leaves.


    3. After ECU was rejected by the Big East, the school's AD stormed into the Big East offices, and powerbombed Commissioner John M. Marinatto through his desk on the orders of ECU’s most famous graduate, Vince McMahon.


    2. Michael Jackson always wanted to go to college at UTEP, because he heard he didn’t have to go to court if he had sex with Miners there.

    And, the number 1 thing you didn't know about Conference USA...
    1. Every April 1st, CUSA officials call Karl Benson to inform him that he is the new commissioner of Conference USA. He falls for it every year.
