If we are stuck in the AAC, maybe we should push for it to expand

    That's the Big East formula for Conference Destruction.

    From a purely hoops standpoint - this isn't a bad add at all. For everything else, probably not.

    ALTHOUGH

    Their baseball program is pretty legit. The AAC, for all it's foilbles - has turned into a pretty excellent baseball conference - not that that means anything to people here.

    Add Air Force, Army and Rice (if Houston leaves).

    I'm all for AAC expansion, and I'm sure that Mike Aresco and company have a plan in place already for this in the next few years.

    Here's who I'd invite to move to 16:
    • Army
    • Air Force
    • Boise State
    • BYU
    If (and its a big if) BYU wouldn't agree to join because they enjoy being an Independent, or Army or Air Force won't join, then I think you go after these schools:
    • Colorado State
    • New Mexico
    • San Diego State

    This thread is reminding me of being told to support our AHL team after years of watching the NHL in Hartford

    Sorry, that was one large typo. - I think only mtn west schools and Army are worthy IF any are coming.
