I mean, you aren't going to be able to put any combination of SBC and CUSA schools to get the kind of money the AAC is, but I don't have much doubt you get get a combination of schools together that could get 7 figures per school per year - a lot more than meager travel savings of going from a geographically spread-out conference to a somewhat less geographically spread out conference.

Remember that there are contract restrictions on how many times a year each team can have a weekday game, so the TV appeal of your middle and lower teams matters.

I would love to challenge this, but there is no way to prove it. that being said, the AAC is 13 teams that are really built up on about 7-8 teams. which is why they now have a clause that the money can drop if certain programs leave. if given the chance to cherry pick 12 teams between Sun Belt and C-usa, you could create a league better than the AAC, once the new league got to play together and things like SOS, etc get factored in.

You're fooling yourself if you really believe this. The AAC has better brand names and both good football and basketball.

Because it's an additional monthly subscription and you have to stream it vs watch it on TV.


My 60 year old dad is a wiz at streaming tv. Surely the rest of you up guys can figure it out.

My dad is 86 and only games he misses are the ones that aren't streamed. He calls his Roku "the Youtube" but he can find the games.


I feel like I’d like your pop.

Mom's 74 and Dad's 80. They had to teach me how to navigate my brand new 4K TV last year so I could watch ESPN+. They were both very patient with me03-lmfao

Interesting that this goes 12 years. That's after it's presumed Texas and Oklahoma leave the Big 12 and the Big 12 presumably backfills from the AAC.
If the AAC loses members to the Big 12 ESPN could find the media rights are no longer worth what they're paying.

good point. and you know all G5 AD's from the sunbelt/CUSA will be prepared once that time comes to move up.

i'm curious what the AD from ASU thinks about the deal, hopefully Kara will ask him that on weekly show with Kara Richey. i like that guy opinions lol

I hope Kara will ask Terry about bowls. I think the final 2020-2026 bowl lineup is supposed to be official in May. I'd be curious as to his take on whats going on with the bowl lineups at the G5 level now that at least some of the P5 picture was recently revealed by McMurphy.
Is there any interest in the Cure Bowl at all by the AAC? I honestly wish the New Orleans Bowl would be against the AAC (but a higher finishing AAC team than the Cure gets).

I know the goal is to get as many of the G5 vs P5 bowls east of the Rockies as possible. That said---there arent that many P5 vs G5 bowls and we need 7. l've always liked the idea of having NOLA as one of the AAC bowls. I know Terry Mohajir mentioned a possible "bowl pool" at one point....so, who knows?
