It doesn't matter how good the AAC is or becomes in football, there is a playoff football committee that by design is only allowed to vote on certain FBS conferences, the AAC not being one of them... AAC might get as powerful as any conference but will never be a p6 in today's landscape.
Committees that make selections for sports games is just wrong, in most any sport imo

RE: AAC declares it is a "Power 6" conference.
Power schools that make more than other G5 schools.

Boise State
BYU
Army
Navy
Air Force

Boise State's does have a deal with ESPN for home games.
BYU also have a deal with ESPN and their own Network.
The 3 military schools do get extra cash for the Armed Forces Network and CBS. The three schools do have games broadcast in other countries like Germany, Australia, Japan, South Korea and so forth where there are military bases are located at for the US. That is why most of the colleges in those countries do have college football.

If they want to aim high then good for them.

What it really means is that they want to become attractive enough that

1) ESPN is willing to pay them +20mil/team for their TV rights

2) A major NY6 Bowl wants their champ for an auto bid

I would say to do that their goal needs to be a conference avg attendance of 50k or better and just continue to improve attendance facilities and support.

Also note: The current P conferences have NOTHING to do with achieving those goals. It's entirely on the AAC schools to achieve these goals (as they should be)

I said it before and will say it again. The AAC reminds me of Glen Close and the P5 as Micheal Douglass from the classic movie Fatal Attraction. 03-lmfao

LOL. The AAC just doomed themselves to have a bad embarrassing season with that comment.

I'd rather have a commissioner that tries to push a new narrative than one that doesn't even give it a shot. I know it's not true, but you have to believe in your product. Hair Thompson does not, and the MW suffers because of it.

The American reminds me of the MWC before 2010. They claimed they were the 7th AQ league and that was with BYU, TCU and Utah which the AAC lacks. Just like the MWC, the AAC will learn that individual schools not entire conferences get picked by the cartel. But hey, at least I give them credit by trying.

Actually the MWC was more like CUSA 1.0; in fact one of the MWC's strongest team's (TCU) was from CUSA 1.0.

CUSA 1.0 got raided and the MWC got raided.

TCU was from about C-USA 1.6 or whatever.

I doesn't matter how much money anybody makes or how big or small a stadium is, the p5 has a lock on the championship regardless, it's done.
