You could increase per school payouts significantly (but still not enough to match any current P5 contract) if you are willing to not just add high value teams, but also to shed all low value teams. Maybe then you could get into the $12-15 million range.

I basically agree with that. If we could form a 14-team league of say:

BYU
SDSU
Boise
USF
UCF
Cincy
Houston
Memphis
Temple
Navy
Air Force
UConn
SMU
Colorado State

Or something similar, that might command about $10 million a school. But it would not be granted NCAA autonomy or CFP "contract bowl" status and would not be a "power" league in the public eye.

Get CCG deregulated and then add BYU, Boise, SDSU, and Air Force to the 15-team expanded AAC. So much easier to use what is already in place. UConn and Colorado State aren't going to be difference-makers over Tulane, ECU, and Tulsa.

Then, do a 2020-ACC-like deregulated schedule. Also add Gonzaga for Olympic sports. With six Central time-zone schools, plenty of room for scheduling flexibility such that no team would have more than one East-West road trip per season, if needed.

$160M per year for football and basketball inventory, including the football CCG and the conference basketball tournament. Includes awesome ESPN football and basketball inventory for 12pm ET to 10pm ET kickoffs and tipoffs.

Officially opt out of the Group of Five...P6, remember.

With the expanded AAC champion likely to be highly ranked, work like crazy to get a central-time-zone bowl for the champion, held around New Year's, against top-3 PAC or top-3 B12 school. Similar to ACC's Orange Bowl relationship with B1G and SEC. The AAC Champion's bowl, branded as a New Year's bowl, would usually stage a top 15-20 matchup.

So how many schools would be in this conference?

You need 8 full, FB-playing members for FBS.

Unless you can change that rule. IMO, it's time the NCAA got out of the business of defining how conferences must be organized or scheduled.
