Along with SMU. Its a much better option than going back to CUSA. Possibly lure Gonzaga in as BB only. A game with Colorado State or Air Force will generate way more interest than any of the new members. Boise alone makes it better.

we get more TV money than the MWC, better exposure than the MWC, and it costs 18 million to leave the AAC.

if you want to play MWC teams root for a merger. JMHO

That's the current deal based on current members. The AAC is going to never get that deal again with UNCC and UTSA ect.

RE: We need to go ahead and call the Mountain West
I have no inside info, but I don't think the tv deal will be drastically different if it gets renegotiated. If you remember, ESPN spun up the rumor about Aresco going after Big12 leftovers and it backfired. I think ESPN realized this and probably consulted Aresco and company on what tv markets would keep the deal as close to the current one as possible. Only reason some of the schools make sense is to get a small piece of the tv markets. Just my opinion.

No way that happens, the AAC is a dead misfit conference going forward. The sooner we come to grips with that the better. We should just go ahead and change our name to UT Memphis so we fit in better with our new conference.

The MW is still worse than the AAC.

No one watches those games on the east coast.

Memphis in the MW would seal the coffin on recruiting our own area.

We're better off where we are than being the outlier school that nobody cares about.

I do. So this time dominate the conference in football and basketball and be the best of the rest until there's more shakeup. We can either ***** about it or do somethin about. Bitchin is easy. Doin something is not. Anything Easy isn't worth a damn.

I get that, but there is no guarantee the MWC will look the same in six months. If the B1G takes several Pac schools, MWC will be raided. Then where are we?

Memphis & SMU need to bolt for the MWC & leave the remnants of the AAC to merge with CUSA/SunBelt.

Would make for a better all-around schedule except that currently the AAC pays about 1.5-2x that of the MWC & we'd miss the exit fees of those leaving.

I don't disagree with you BUT this is the same song and dance that's been going on for 30 years - alway just on the outside.... getting close; just missed out...... I don't know. Seems familiar.

I agree. If the B1G and SEC end up pushing to 24 teams then the possible third conference from the leftovers may push to 24 as well. That means we just need to be one of the top 72 schools and we could end up in a very solid conference.

For example Nerdlinger came up with this idea.

Now that we know the B1G has other teams on the radar this could be a possible outcome. Stammers talked about it a little while back, but I had my doubts due to the info available at the time. I've become more optimistic with more recent info. This is why Memphis needs to keep pushing to improve and be in the best position possible instead of "giving up".

Too in your feelings to think straight. Our cut stays the same going forward and the new kids take less to offset any TV losses. Just like when we came in.
