My guess is Aresco will politely reject the offer and extend invites to schools in the AAC and/or Sun Belt.

The problem is this only works if AAC and Sun Belt go along and the article makes it pretty clear neither are willing to play along

Current AAC teams are not interested. And will take who they want first.

UAB, Marshall, App State, Georgia State, and the Texas schools of Sun Belt and CUSA are smart enough to wait.

Why regionalize when you can cannibalize? Kill off a G5 conference and then you dont need 5 Power conference votes to control the NCAA vote. ESPNs master plan continues.

AAC will have to comply when the new playoff format is released and it shows that the G6 is left out completely at which point the three AAC schools won’t need to go to the b-12 at all
the new playoff format when released will trigger everything, untill then it’s all posturing

The wild card here is Delaney. If anyone can pull this off, it's him.

Ummm no. The guy is painted as a “genius” because he just happened to be in charge of a league everyone wants to join. Unless he’s got a plan to be presented that makes the AAC schools more money than they’d made by just taking whoever they want this never even gets considered. Even if that mythical plan existed the egos still stop it. I don’t see anyone clamoring for “fairness and reorganization” at the P5 level. I’ll listen when that gets seriously talked about.

Memphis and SMU wouldn’t agree to that. No chance this happens.

Have to give a lot of you guys credit here. While I don't think it'll ever pass, just the mention of this by commissioners gives validity to your ideas.

Let Houston stay in the AAC, if they want.

Cincinnati is gone, no matter what.

It makes little sense for the AAC to agree to this. I can understand it making sense for C-USA and the Sun Belt to reorganize based on regional ties. The AAC schools simply don’t see the others as equals (and that’s reflected in the TV payouts).

Why not test this with the SEC and ACC? The SEC gets Florida State, Miami, Georgia Tech, and Clemson. In exchange, the ACC gets Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Missouri (sorry Missouri, but Clemson + South Carolina in the same conference just makes sense geographically).

I highly doubt a regionalization of AAC + Sun Belt + C-USA ever happens, for the same reasons a regionalization of SEC + ACC will likely never happen.

This isn't happening, 05-deadhorse 05-deadhorse 05-deadhorse

But something that isn't repeated enough when this comes up: ESPN has to sign on. CUSA's TV contracts end relatively soon, but the AAC and Sun Belt are signed with ESPN for a good long time.

And unless ESPN is the one doing the carving-up, this is going nowhere.

The SBC is not interested. They are much more compact than CUSA. And they think they can lure away schools from CUSA if they want.

Makes no sense for the AAC. It would be throwing the white flag to join this. Instead hey will take a few schools from CUSA.

It's CUSA last gasp attempt to keep from turning into the WAC of FBS.

How many are going to the AAC? Sun Belt or MW?

It makes zero sense for the AAC to take more than 4. I doubt the MW really takes 2. I do think the Sun could take 2.

Even if CUSA loses 6 they can just add a couple more.

Navy expressly didn't want a regional conference - while the American wasn't exactly national, it delivered a wide enough exposure to satisfy the majority of Navy's needs.

That said, if no one moves TO the American, it isn't going to last.

Even then, there are currently 32 football playing members in the 3 conferences. Unless if you can convince 4 independents to join (UConn, UMass, NMSU, Army?), and then make 3 neat blocks of 12 each:

Region 1
West - NMSU, UTEP, UTSA, Rice, SMU, Texas State
East - North Texas, Tulsa, Arkansas State, Louisiana, Louisiana-Monroe, Tulane

Region 2
West - Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, Memphis, MTSU, UAB, WKU
East - FAU, FIU, Georgia Southern, USA, Troy, South Florida

Region 3
North - Army*, Navy*, UConn*, UMass, Temple, Old Dominion
South - App State, Charlotte, ECU, CCU, Marshall, Georgia State

Even then you still have one conference that stretches from Amherst to Atlanta.
