yes I guess all we have to do is avoid letting one of our team lead the negotiations for our TV deal, turn down ESPN then immeadiately leave the conference.

UConn has a growing internal war over it's athletic future direction. The majority of schools are pissed at the bill of goods sold them with he weak media package. 10 of 12 applied to the Big 12. And the Comissioner talks in an alternate universe speak of being the 6th power conference.

Yeah all kumbaya

In what bizarro world is this happening in?

I am Miko. I root for the Pitt Panthers. We were once a proud football team in the 80s.

IF AAC "looks" 2 expand
Best bet 4 best TV deal
Go Military
Air Force/Army
o/s of BYU (Mormons will never join AAC)
Military schools offer the most "new" viewer eyes

That's what would seem logical.

I think stability will be a good thing moving forward, and I see great things in store for the AAC in the future. I think their future is very bright, and so long as that conference does not allow avarice to set in everyone will be happy. The whole system is working well for everyone. Hopefully the AAC fans don't muck it up for the rest of us by trying to force their schools to do irrational things.

Show me the money. Teams in the AAC can't chug along on a pittance while the P5s of the world continue to rake it in. Whatever good vibes folks are feeling about this conference will quickly fade if we can't attract the resources to become more competitive on the national stage.

This right here is what I'm talking about. Instead of worrying about what everyone else has, the AAC needs to focus within and make the conference the best it can be. Jealousy and greed will ultimately be the undoing of the AAC IF the member schools allow it to happen. This is where the fans can become dangerous to the viability of the conference by trying to drive it down a path paved with the stones of greed and the mortar of jealousy.

Hahahaha...you are a poet Miko!

To be honest I thought Miko had lost a step. His schtick was getting old. But stones of greed and mortar of jealousy... that's Class A stuff.

I don't understand the love affair with the Mtn West. Sure here are some solid schools to cherry pick, but to bring in the entire league would kill the AAC's perception of a P6 Conference. Seven to eight schools consistently average below 25,000 in football and since 2013 their NCAA Basketball Tournament apps have plummeted. Only one team made the field in 2016 three in 2015 and two in 2014.

I could see the AAC going to 18 but no more, to many mouths to feed.

Possibly?
East- Cincinnati, Memphis, UCONN, ECU, Temple, USF, UCF, Tulane, Tulsa

West- NAVY, AF, Army, Houston, BYU, Boise, SMU, SD State, Colorado State

Being able to go multi dimensional would help out the AAC, ACC, SEC, B1G & the PAC.

In a 3x6, possibly?
Cincinnati, Memphis, UCONN, USF, UCF, ECU

NAVY, AF, Army, Temple, Tulane, Tulsa

BYU, Boise, SD State, Houston, SMU, Colorado State

The TV deal that traded exposure for money was smart.
The whole conference basically made the Big Twelves finalist list. A grant of rights with an escape clause for a P5 invite would be smart. Adding CSU and New Mexico would help their P6 argument.
