SI Ranks the Top 10 FBS Conferences Heading into 2017....
https://www.si.com/college-football/2017...cc-big-ten


Quote:—we took into account the league’s current depth, recent postseason success and foundation for future growth. Which league deserves top billing a little over a month away from the first kickoff of the 2017 season? Here's how all 10 stack up.

Spoiler Alert: The MAC isn't #1 (or #10 02-13-banana) But this quote from the MAC summary is special:

Quote:Still, the league’s TV contract will work in its favor over the next decade it spans.

Make no mistake, ESPN has destroyed the MAC, just destroyed

Absolutely no doubt that gutless MAC ADs have had a big contribution in not standing up for the fanbases

04-cheers Yes! Better than fun belt Sunbelt and Conference USA. Looks like the AAC wouldn't be a lateral move, heh? It would be depressing to be worst than the Sunbelt. Thanks WMU for holding the MAC on your shoulders last year. Lol

Boise State hasn't won the MWC the last two seasons and got beat in the Cactus Bowl by a mediocre Baylor team that had lost its last six games in a row after barely beating a bad Iowa State.

MAC participated in the big time bowl, AAC stayed home, pretty much what it boils down to

It's MD's "vortex of ridiculousness". I got sucked into it earlier and all it did was waste the board and myself's time.

I think maybe this old argument is because it is not being broken done enough. In terms of structure and leadership, the AAC is a better conference, that conference does not suffer from incompetence as much as the MAC. When it comes to the product, that is where its a wash, or as of recently, MAC creeping slightly ahead. We should be thankful as a whole the MAC has had such great talent and coaching over the years, it has saved this conference. Just not sure how much longer that can happen, feels like this thing could collapse at any time given dwindling MAC fanbases.
