Some speculate some Belt teams but AAC NEEDS the bogger media markets offered by CUSA like ours! NO Belt team offers that.

Hoping for us, UAB , UTSA and marshall.  Fearing they take Charlotte instead of marshall

Either way , let's hope we get in.   Yes more teams like memphis, SMU or Tulsa could leave in the future.   But we would be in an ESPN conference with the ability to pull the best left in cusa and the sun belt as replacements if they do

I think I'd rather have Charlotte than UTSA; nothing against them; meep-meep, or whatever. But maybe I'm letting geography be too influential?

I'm for all the eastern teams we can get but at least one will likely be in the west

Think they will want UTSA to replace Houston and to partner with SMU and UNCC much bigger media market than Huntington WV

Marshall is 110% not in the picture to join the AAC.

UTSA is a better shot of joining the AAC than UNT, because of the SMU situation.

ECU may have an issue with Charlotte joining, but I haven't heard from a source saying that the Greenville based school is against it.

A source told me three weeks ago that USF WOULD NOT veto FAU's addition to the AAC. Granted, a lot can change in 24 hours, let alone three weeks.

I would hope that having former FAU Coaches here would help too! And a local travel game every 2 years still cant hurt I would think! Not to mention non-revenue sports!!!
