I would expect annual games H&H in November once the schedules allow it it down the road. I would also expect to see annual H&H Army and UMASS games scheduled in November going forward too when future schedules open up, to fill the November voids when the other schools are playing their conference schedule's. New Mexico State and BYU can float in and out too on an as needed basis. You might not see them as often due to the high traveling expenses UConn is trying to avoid going forward. UConn will only want to travel long distances in the future for million dollar money games. Surprisingly their current schedules are not as bad as everyone thought they would be. 07-coffee3

Perhaps in 2024 scheduling UMass in November is possible.

2022 is full and the only team I'd like to push out is Tulane and 2023 we only have an opening in middle of Oct. Also notice that 2 out of the 3 other independents are scheduled before November. Scheduling in November, being an independent has not been a problem.

Our 2022 and 2023 (as 2020 and 2021 were ready scheduled prior to UConn's move).
2022
09/03 - at Tulane
09/10 - at Toledo
09/17 - Stony Brook
09/24 - at Temple
10/01 - at Eastern Michigan
10/08 - Liberty
10/15 - Buffalo
10/22 - at USF
10/29 - New Mexico State
11/12 - at Arkansas State
11/19 - at Texas A&M
11/26 - Army

2023
08/26 - at New Mexico State
09/02 - at Auburn
09/09 - Miami (Ohio)
09/16 - at Eastern Michigan
09/23 - New Mexico
09/30 - Toledo
10/07 - Arkansas State
10/28 - at Army
11/04 - Merrimack
11/11 - at Penn State
11/18 - at Liberty

Big East Teams in a Power Conference:

Marquette


AAC teams in a Power Conference:

Cincinnati
USF

I think it's pretty clear why the Big East is still considered a power conference.

flip side is Memphis came from CUSA with a TV deal paying 1 million per year to the AAC which will now pay ~6.94 million per year...even if it's not "Power 5" it still puts us in a conference with way more money, better competition, and better TV exposure.

it's not an accident that teams like Memphis, Houston, and UCF weren't ever able to sniff the Cotton/Peach/Fiesta Bowls in CUSA but suddenly start winning in the AAC.

The AAC is basically the same as CUSA circa 2005 -- Central Florida, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, SMU, Tulane, and Tulsa were all in the conference then, and Cincinnati and South Florida had just left.

The AAC is basically the same as CUSA circa 2005

with a WAY better TV contract, which leads to better money, better exposure, and the ability to grow our football program (as seen over the past 6 years)

Production costs with ESPN+ going forward will be an issue but UConn's 17 million dollar exit fee sure helps in that regard.

Aresco says the AAC will seek a 1 year extension to our waiver allowing us to host a title game with 11 teams due to COVID-19...so in 2-3 years we'll reevaluate conference membership but for now...we move forward with 11+1

$7M per school per year is paltry and barely chips away at the massive cost of maintaining FBS.

And you're still in the red, unfortunately. Doesn't seem sustainable in the long run.

it's way better than where we came from and you can see it in the results...we (Memphis) still have that FedEx and Walmart money funding things.

Depends on how long the long run is. Dr Rudd (Memphis Pres) was on the AAC media neg. committee and said before the deal was done that $6M was needed to maintain current budgets and competitiveness. This was obviously before COVID and whatever new normal it brings. But, the current deal *should* be enough to achieve stated goals. Then again, all bets are off depending on how quickly things get back to “normal.“ The timing stinks as the Tigers were set to capitalize on tix sales and donations from the NY6 bowl run.

we also need to make sure Memphis, Houston, UCF, and Cincy are regulars in the Access Bowl....that's an extra 4 million for the conference right there.
