Army in an Eastern Conference
Would Army show interest in joining an eastern conference made up of eastern C-USA/SunBelt/Independent teams?

RE: Army in an Eastern Conference
Army's seven year affiliation with CUSA was an unmitigated failure. Of course CUSA was a much tougher conference then. I would bet that the Sunbelt asked Army if it wanted in prior to taking all the FCS call-ups. Frankly the MAC is as good of a fit for Army as either CUSA or the SB and travel costs would be less than playing almost all Southern schools.

Some would argue that the AAC is a better fit as Football only. Covers more of the country and more money.

Army FB only in AAC would be nice, would also open up an Olympic spot for Dayton or some other school to keep sports even.

Also would probably be enough for Air Force to finally come to AAC for All-sports. They have considered it a few times.
