Ray Watts might be in an uncomfortable position. Say yes and then do an oops when the AAC invite comes? Or does the AAC jump out ahead of this and invite UAB before Judy gets the chance to attempt to blow up the group of 5 lol

The AAC will never go for this unless the B12 were to suddenly take 4 more American teams.

C-USA is about to be gutted like a trout by the AAC and the Belt.

Sounds like some bull**** the C-USA office cooked up to justify their pitiful existence.

No, it's what the consultant they hired came up with to justify his fat fee.

Excluding the MWC, are there 8 all-sports schools worth inviting?

Well, and this is not my opinion, since the article also stated this:

Quote:After failing to lure any Mountain West schools, sources said the AAC had set its sights East on some combination of UAB, North Texas, Texas State, UTSA, Appalachian State and perhaps others.

which includes mentions of 3 teams not generally mention, I would guess there is at least 8.

UAB, Charlotte, Marshall, UTSA, North Texas, Texas State, Appalachian State and FAU. That's 8 that have been mentioned.

Heck, there were 9 schools listed as in consideration for a possible BigXII expansion to 16 in 2025 or 2026 and most people don't think there are 4 worthy candidates for that possibility either.

Quote: When asked about the C-USA concept, an AAC spokesman told CBS Sports, "We have zero interest in that. That's not in our plan."


Judy, we’re about to take your best programs and then the Sun Belt will take the next two or three. You will be begging WAC and A-Sun schools for membership in a few weeks.

Letter goes into paper shredder and you hear chuckling.

...I think Aresco is looking to grab the top remaining Texas schools before the MWC can offer them... but if those schools get pilfered by someone, and of course UAB, Marshall, and perhaps FAU are also gone to the AAC, and USM appears to be heading to the Belt with ...La.Tech, maybe? (lots of bad blood there with the other LA schools) ...and finally, WKU and MTSU to the MAC (which makes pretty good sense) - that will pretty much take care of C-USA.

Let’s hope we’re not on the same filet as Troy & USA.

...the scuttlebutt on other boards is that USM and Marshall are 'actively engaging' (or something like that) the Sun Belt -of course they have to be invited, but I would think the Belt would welcome those two in pretty easy. There is also some talk of ODU/James Madison/Charlotte mix in addition to the Belt... I think it's the AAC with us, as we are still #1 on the general AAC realignment scuttlebutt (yeah, that's a word I use every day 03-lmfao )

The biggest problem in the whole concept is that you’re stuck with more dogcrap BB teams

I’m sure everyone has read the rumor this week that Charlotte may be picked up when we join or soon after.

...yep they are a wildcard for sure... not sure about their facilities (never made a trip there), but I figure they are enough to get them into the conversation...
