AAC will never measure up to Power 5
This guy must have some issues with the AAC.

As a conference, the American is never going to get to the top level. But a few of its teams, like USF, possess the resources to get there on their own. And that starts with beating Power 5 conference teams. Consistently.

So far, nobody’s been able to do that.

If consistency means having a better than .500 record against the P5, that is never going to happen. However, I think Houston has proven that they can consistently beat P5 opponents.

This is pretty much common sense. All you have to do is look at historical records which were BEFORE the influx of massive TV dollars.

Lots of issues with the OP's premise. The AAC gets relatively few opportunities to even play P5 schools & will get even fewer in the future as the P5 attempt to avoid us in scheduling. If the top half of the AAC plays an avg mix of P5 opponents, the AAC schools would fare very well.

I wish this could be understood once and for all... We are not claiming to be EQUAL to the P5. We are claiming there is clear OVERLAP, and therefore no SEPARATION. It is this artificial separation that is hurting us.. and influencing bowls and TV$$$.. On the field, in facilities, and with ratings, we compete very well with the P5.

In this regard, almost everyone is against us... The P5 want to keep us down, and the G4 do as well... A applaud Aresco for fighting for this conference.

You mean to tell me P5 schools which rake in several million more dollars have a competitive advantage over schools that don't have the lucrative TV deal?

What is the Ledger? They probably just doubled their all-time foot traffic from this thread.

We beat P5s more regularly than anyone outside of Houston. It's our only claim to fame at the moment.
