The combined Mount USA Conference will only be for football, correct?

Temple to Big East for all-sports starting in 2012
Really upset at this, because it weakens the A10 even more. Temple has always been a staple in the conference and losing them might make the Atlantic 10 a one-bid conference.

I predict one of two paths for the Big East.
They will either scoop up any and every "available" school across the country that has at least a decent football and/or basketball program and become too bloated that it collapses.
Nobody will have any interest in this new-founded nation wide conference (will anyone care about Rutgers vs. SMU?) and it will collapse.
I can't see this being sustained.

RT @McMurphyCBS: C-USA adding UNT, FIU, LaTech, UTSA, Charlotte & ODU in 2013, sources tell @CBSSports http://cbsprt.co/JQoDJo
The additions of UNT, FIU, La Tech, and UTSA are not surprising, but ODU and Charlotte are. Both schools are just starting their football programs, but the CUSA is looking long-term by adding them.
What does this move do to other conferences?
- The WAC is probably done. It may continue to be a non-football conference, but with only 2 football teams left, that section of the league probably folds.
- After this season, the A10 is down to 12 teams. Temple to Big East, Charlotte (back) to CUSA. Obviously the rumors are swirling that the A10 is trying to add Butler, George Mason, and VCU. Will the A10 try and only to two of those teams to keep the league at an even number or will they go all the way to 16 and add another team? Or, does the A10 stay at 12? Unlikely (though I'd personally rather have 12, just not with our current 12) but possible.
- The CAA should be on DEFCON 5. Georgia St. and ODU are now gone. VCU and GMU are exploring their A10 options. They should be in survival mode and should start looking at other universities to add.
