They could use a natural conference rival now that Louisville is gone. I think the games could generate some local interest, especially in Dayton. Cincinnati has a lot of alumni in the Miami Valley, and adding to their presence there could also increase the casual fan base. Unlike the the old Big East days, adding a tougher game to the conference schedule would benefit Cincinnati. I don't think UC basketball has much presence in Dayton, so they wouldn't be losing anything by Dayton potentially getting stronger.

Yeah, the AAC would stand to gain the most from adding Dayton. Reality is that they wont become a power conference in football unless their is regulatory intervention. But what they could do is seek to become a true power conference in basketball. Wichita, Dayton, Memphis, SMU, Cincinnati, Uconn, and Temple all have potential to be tourney teams most years.

If Richmond has VCU's resume, Dayton and Richmond would already be in, IMO.

Actually all that I had heard was that Georgetown was the one who most wanted UR. The Hoyas were adamantly opposed to VCU.
