Can you imagine the travel costs for the Florida schools the years that they play in Boise?

That is an overstated consideration. Can you imagine the tv ratings on ABC the years UCF plays Boise State?

AAC Re-Alignment

Postby TidePony » Tue Dec 22, 2020 4:20 pm

I'm not sold on Boise. Are they past their prime? The Petersen era is history. They would be housed in the middle of the AAC. Their media market isnt large. The PAC-12 does not want them and it is by far the worst of the (so called) Power leagues. We need to think about this. I think Army is the better choice with its national media market. Im not convinced, maybe I'm wrong. I need to see some empirical data.

My first choice would be BYU, who hasn’t expressed any interest in the past.

If the AAC considers 14 FB members, you could bring Boise State, Army and Air Force.

Boise and Air Force, plus Army... yes, this works for sure.

Mediocrity + Mediocrity = Mediocrity

Mediocrity x Mediocrity = Mediocrity

Mediocrity ÷ Mediocrity = Mediocrity

My preference would be BYU alone. If not, BYU, Boise State, and San Diego State. If we want to do 16, add Fresno State and Colorado State.

I think BSU is too much of a headache to deal with. I think BYU, Airforce for the west and add someone like CCU or Liberty on the east. That would help with profile and travel costs.
