CAA is fine geographically now that they have two in New York. They have teams from NC to Maine in a nice row of states up the coast, less footprint than the ACC by far. They are way below the Big East and I would never expect the Big East to pick up any of them. They can raid the CUSA, Sunbelt, first for several much better teams than the CAA.
Too bad the WAC didn't figure out a way to get some teams up into FBS from the eastern FCS group. The remaining WAC teams were trying a few months ago to expand (from two teams, Idado and New Mex State!) and they were considering getting several east coast teams to join them. Wacky, I know, but I expected JMU, App State, Liberty at least to be interested. If they could have gotten Ga Southern and Delaware, then it would be good for those eastern teams, IMO, to try. Not sure how many the WAC needed to stay afloat, but it should have happened, IMO. I assume not enough of them were willing to join the WAC (if any). Maybe the CAA and the Southern conference is better at this point.
