Some notable schools for consideration to join the AAC, and schools that interest me personally. USA rankings.

262-Boise State

145-Georgia State
86-Colorado State
70-Uconn
168-Nevada
192-UNLV


287-TCU

185-Northern Illinois
17-Illinois
14-Northwestern
6-University of Chicago
1-Harvard


It's funny how posters on this board always ignore the university that makes the most sense to join the AAC. UAB is ranked higher than every school in the AAC (66 - 179).

Yeah I caught that going through the list.

The majority of UAB students are BAMA fans.

The majority of Tulane students don't even know they have a football team.

If our (Memphis') last football trip there were any indication, that is sadly true. Of course, that didn't keep them from spanking our ass.

Guess it not 100% based on the level of education you get.

Curious what they use to measure a universities quality.

Yeah---Navy is as rigorous and academically honorable as a school can be---but the specialization and uniqueness of its mission is always going to make it difficult to compare to other more typical universities. For instance, in US News and World Report---Navy is ranked with the national liberal arts schools---I dont know---lol---but that just doesnt sound right to me....
Eh, you can make a case that the service academies fit the classic definition of a "liberal arts education" -- as opposed to a modern definition of a liberal arts degree. Combining the sciences and the humanities, teaching one to think, and molding a student to be a good well-rounded citizen.
Mr. Jefferson would have liked our curriculum, I dare say.

I was an history major, but my degree says "Bachelor of Science" because it included mathematics through Calculus III and Differential Equations, chemistry, physics, electrical engineering, systems engineering, thermodynamics, and more as core curriculum. I daresay other core courses like leadership, law for the junior officer, and others fit the classic definition of a liberal arts education, too.

I daresay there would be a lot less college debt if those were in the core cirriculum everywhere.

My experience at a Liberal Arts College was the complete opposite, forced me to take useluss humanities courses as a STEM major.

The answer is sorta. Yes---UAB has its own BOD as an independent institution in the University of Alabama System, but that board is in turn controlled by The University of Alabama System Trustee Board which has 14 members. Eleven of the 14 on that board are Bama grads, 2 are UAB grads, and one is an Auburn grad....so the narrative that Bama can no longer exert any influence over UAB is at best misleading. The situation is certainly improved over what it was---but its not as "cured" as some would lead you to believe. That said--I think the political backslash was harsh enough that I doubt you'd see the Trustee's try anything as radical as pushing the elimination of the football program any time soon.

I was present, the students were sent home for the end
of the semester drung that game and only fans allowed. However, Tulane students still dont really care enough to go to most of the games so your still correct in spirit.
