A 20 team Sun Belt. ESPN would most certainly agree to that, and would gladly allow the Sun Belt to poach ECU and USF from the AAC. The Big 12 has no interest in USF, so of course this would be possible (sarcasm).

Another stupid post on this board, the SBC is not going to 20 and USF isn’t going to SBC.

You’re probably right, but they will be super competitive and have an advantage.

The MWAC fans desperately hope to remain relevant, but if the AAC lets loose of the NY6 bowl advantage the MWAC will be supplanted by the Sunbelt. All of that will only be temporary as the AAC will reassert dominance after a short consolidation period.

"Super-competitive?" "Advantage?"

The best AAC football teams should be "competitive" with the best MWC and SBC teams, but "super-competitive" suggests that they'll have the advantage, and we have no data suggesting that.

Not sure they'll have any "advantage," either. If so, what is that advantage?

Being braggadocious can bring blowback and provide locker room material.

Modesty seems to be a good policy, especially when it's warranted.

After all, it's certainly within the realm of possibility that the AAC won't send a single team to a NY6 bowl between 2023 and 2028.

With UC, UCF, and UH no longer in the league, it is possible that SMU, Memphis, and ECU will have 10 or more wins, and better viewership than about anybody else.

RE: At 14 teams, Will the AAC Maintain Dominance Over the NY6/Access Spot?
I know we lost three good schools, but we're ignoring the depth in the middle. Consider the following:

1. Memphis has consistently been strong.
2. SMU is on an upswing now and this will probably continue.
3. ECU has immense loyalty and with better play will start selling out with 45k-50k in the stands. In the case of an eventual breakoff...I feel confident ECU will get a lifeboat over a Wake Forest.
4. USF has been good for at least half our time in the AAC (2015 to the first half of 2019). I think we will be back. Landing a P5 conference winning QB will be a huge help to be sure...and now McClain has two years to learn to be extraordinarily dangerous. Besides, when we are good...we can get 40k in the stands. We're not less than anyone else.
