UTSA turn down AAC?
I’ve seen this rumor on Twitter. Rumor is UTSA has turned down AAC! I’m shocked if true. Anyone in the know have any info on this? I can’t really imagining them turning down the AAC unless the MWC is showing interest.

RE: UTSA turn down AAC?
Rumour (British spelling) was they would/could not raise their athletic budget to the "required" amount.

Yes, I know they just built a new athletic center with all the bells and whistles. That is a capital expenditure. We are talking annual budget here.

Pure hearsay-- have no idea if true.

I've heard budget issues, and if Texas-Austin is behind UTSA not being able to move up, that would be crap.

The only thing I can think of to justify not moving is not being able to afford a collective $7.5 million in fees--$5 million to leave CUSA, and $2.5 million to enter the AAC (at least in 2014, but they could have raised those fees by now).

Most schools don't pay those fees all at once, so I have a hard time believing UTSA would be forced to or that they couldn't afford it paid over the course of a handful of years

IF the AAC is that restrictive on annual budget levels they are going to have a somewhat harder time finding candidates.

I was thinking the same, I wonder what they require/expect? Also paying that amount of money into a conference that could be further raided is risky. But I imagine UTSA fans are not gonna be happy at all.

Pretty sure the AAC entrance fee is $10 million. Is it really worth that for the current conference?

Exact thought I had. To be fair there's another tweet. Doesn't seem very credible either.

I did a bit more digging and it looks like the rumor started in SB board. Go figure. UTSA turns down AAC and MW to join SB.

No, that's the current exit fee with a proper notice. The entrance fee is typically less, but I don't know if it's still $2.5 million. That's what Wichita paid in 2017.

Yeah, I don't click on direct links to the Slum Belch forum because almost anything related to CUSA schools is just garbage. There's not a soul over there that knows squat about what is happening with this conference.

That's probably the first time I've gone to their board. Only cuz I was on the trail to find the source. I thought AAC fans were delusional, boy was I in for a surprise.
