Dude...smh

You asked for insider info. You got it. Now you want proof of insider info. It doesn't work that way.

Dude, you forgot to add the customary "Uttini!"

Go away, now. Obvious troll is...obvious.

Huh? What are you talking about? He said the vote. I have no idea what vote he’s talking about, I was literally just asking. There is no ulterior motive. My goodness.

What are you talking about? Is the modern definition of “troll” anyone that has an opinion that differs from your own? I literally shared the link of the thread that the poster created and asked if anyone here had heard something similar. How on earth is that “trollish”? And I don’t know what that last word is that you’re talking about,It sounds like a special at Carrabba’s. Oh by the way, aren’t you guys playing a game right now?

Finally something we agree on!

If the AAC truly wants to become a FB power conference, and if BYU isn't interested, adding a perennial top 25 FB program would be the most likely way to achieve that goal - - and Boise State has a better resume than the other contenders (App. State, Marshall, etc.).

What sets Boise State apart from the "other contenders" is its proven track record when it comes to average viewership. Adding a school with high average viewership (e.g., 500,000 per game) could double the average viewership for the conference as a whole.

The only conditions would be stipulating that Boise State would be a FB-only member, and a willingness on Boise State's part to negotiate a revenue package that is acceptable to the AAC Presidents, with no demands for "special treatment" other than, perhaps, the kind of flexibility accorded to Navy.

Soon after Connecticut announced their departure, the AAC Commissioner, Mike Aresco, let the cat out of the bag in stating that there was a very short list of new members that the conference would consider. From early on, the list was rumored said to include three (3 = "very few" schools: BYU, Army (FB only), and Boise State (FB only).

A "troll" is a poster who posts things with absolutely no proof just to get other posters to bite on it. That would be YOU. Your "proof" is some link to another discussion on another fan-board. I suppose you could sell the Brooklyn Bridge or some lovely property in the Everglades with such a tactic, but it would make you no less of a troll. You chummed up the water, the fish come out, and then you have your "discussion."

As to my other reference(s), I had an oblique reference to "The Dude of WV" and then the once ubiquitous "Tuxedo Yoda" and his alter-ego "Naughty Jawa" (or whatever he was called), who used to troll these boards with every salacious rumor they could concoct about how "It was a done deal" that this team or that team was moving to this conference or that conference. All of which was crap and none of which actually happened.

I'm just going to say it: I think you're full of s***. Period. Whether you're the aforementioned "Fanhood" or the second-coming of "Tuxedo Yoda," or really some other troll who comes to these pages to stir up crap, you're full of s***.

No thanks to Boise, yes to BYU. BYU is a much better program but I suspect they will only go to a P5 like the B12.

This year, without a doubt. But over the last 5 to 10 years, the facts do not back that up. That’s the great thing about facts, they do not care about our feelings.

BYU has better TV numbers and better home attendance year over year. This is why BYU is the better program for the AAC.

It’s been a couple of years, but a former AAC AD told me no more private schools was the general feeling

Liberty has $$$$$ and has been committed to building their sports programs under Jerry Jr. it will be interesting to see if that commitment continues.

If the conference is forced to expand they'll be on the short list. We've already been rejected by our actual targets (i.e Army, BYU), if we have to we'll settle.

Is religious affiliation another strike against them? I know we are Methodist affiliated, but we are basically non-religious at this point given there are more Catholics at SMU than any other religion.
