Exclamation UAB will be AAC 12th FB member
AAC ain’t getting Boise (king of the hill in MWC) or Air Force (won’t leave their long rivalries with front range comrades Wyoming, Colorado St and New Mexico. And BYU is a proud independent who loves Indy schedule full of p5 teams.
UAB or Marshall shall replace UCONN

Yep, you would incur the wrath of the 6th power conference.

ODU seems the front runner. UAB is no where on that list because their football program is not safe. Marshall is too small of a tv market to add. UAB and MRSHll is not even on the AAC's radar.

ODU, like their location, name sounds like D3 school
Who else in C-USA might get a look at
Marshall, nice program, market to small
UAB, New stadium, FB crazy state, SEC just to much
So Miss, loved watching them play, hammering big time programs, them days are over
UTSA, favorite city, fill up that dome, BB improves, maybe someday

RE: UAB will be AAC 12th FB member
This is not rocket science.

G4 schools averaging 25K+ football attendance in both 2018 and 2017 in the Eastern, Central or Mountain time zones (can't see us going Paciific)

Air Force
Army
Boise
BYU
Colo St

A 12th team will come from this list. Colo St is rumored to have expressed interest.

After all, $7M per year > $2M which is what the MWC is looking at for TV money. And Colo St has a stadium to pay for.

The Air Force coach's recent comments indicate they might be interested too.

RE: UAB will be AAC 12th FB member
I do think UAB ends up being #12, but I wholeheartedly agree that the AAC should wait out it’s waiver period and see what the potential candidates end up doing. I cannot envision Army, Air Force, Boise State or BYU (each whom should be considered top candidates) coming.

Personally, I am confused why there is so much resistance to a UAB but general acceptance to a Colorado State. UAB is in a better football recruiting area, both have new state of art stadiums, UAB has more successful basketball history, both are on same tier in national academic rankings and UAB is within the AAC footprint (which is already spread out as is). Colorado State would force a team west, where UAB wouldn’t, assuming divisions are kept of course.

Previous history with some of the AAC teams posters that still believe the Alabama BOT would shutdown UAB Football again if given the opportunity. The BOT has already stated publicly that they would support a UAB move to the AAC but some AAC posters don't believe it.

In a sense it's a valid argument but I would think if UAB was to seriously be considered Aresco and the school's presidents would definitely consult with the Alabama BOT for a vote of confidence.

Assume certain things all things being equal.

#12 ...

Will look culturally like the majority of the schools in the conference. Presidents decide and they like things they can quantify and understand. Most of the schools are city school large research universities or city school privates. The majority are Carnegie and USNWR Tier I.

Will not be a western school. They will all have their individual reasons but you can summarize it as the money is not there to justify leaving rivals behind and to increase travel. Ask yourself, will school X's fans care about seeing a home game against school Y from two timezones or 3000 miles away.

Will not be in a city or state with a current member. This would seem to be obvious.

Will not be a Service Academy. One is comfortable in Independence and the other is a Western school. If that theory had legs and there was mutual interest we wouldnt be having this discussion. They would have been added the day after UConn announced.



When you take that and maybe a couple of other obvious factors into account you can quickly come up with a short list.
