Oh well..

Seriously, how many empty slots would there be if they grab 3 from Big 12? Or 2 more to get to 14? They're' not going to take 4 to 6 teams from Big 12 scraps. Hence, the pecking order remains...driven by fans, $$, and other things we need to work on. Dominate any conference we land in is what we can control.

I seriously doubt the AAC gets any teams from the AAC. And if they do UAB would have to consider a move to the Sun Belt. However, if the story below is true then there is still hope for UAB to get into the AAC.

Big 12 accuses ESPN of tampering.

Big 12 accuses ESPN of encouraging its schools to leave conference in cease-and-desist letter

Excerpt Wrote:Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger has additionally reported that Bowlsby believes ESPN is pushing some of his schools to leave for the American Athletic Conference. The reason why ESPN would allegedly do such a thing is that it as also the television partner of the SEC, and dissolving the Big 12 would allow an easier exit for Texas and Oklahoma.

I think UAB needs to appeal to some of the most basic human emotions and motivations- spite and vengeance. Tell the Big 12, "Hey, invite us, and you can stage Big 12 games literally across the street from the SEC." That'd be a thumb in the eye if nothing else.
