    Do we have a shot at the AAC if the Big 12 expands?

    With the AAC's emphasis on basketball, it seems like we could be an attractive candidate. I realize we are way behind in terms of overall athletic budget. That said, if we could make the tournament and maybe win a game or 2 the AAC would take notice. Do you guys think Dr. Guice will pursue this?

    We wouldn't be their first choice, but eventually they would look at us. It might take certain schools leaving and certain schools being called up, but we would make it eventually. I just hope we make it there before we end up in a conference with ULL.

    I think we get into AAC depending on who they lose.

    If they lose a Memphis/Tulane (Big XII could want N.O. market - even though that is LSU's), they could possibly turn to us (luckily we are playing good Football/Basketball right now).
    If they lose Houston, I could see them selecting UTSA/Rice
    If they lose Cincy/East Carolina (not likely), They could add Marshall

    This. We aren't totally out of that conversation, just way down on the list. We still have a long way to go.

    I agree. We just need to keep winning. The AAC is not that much better than C-USA.

    Same could be argued for C-USA vs Sunbelt

    Disagree. I think CUSA is much closer to AAC than Sunbelt is to CUSA. Just look at Sunbelts TV, Bowls, and Revenue.

    I don't deny that. However, weren't some of those things negotiated before the defections of SMU, Tulsa, East Carolina, and Tulane?

    I would be ok with that as well if everybody else in CUSA was ok with that, but everybody is itching to jump ahead into the AAC.

    Correct. The schools the AAC spoke to back in 2011 when the realignment game was put on hold were Rice and Southern Miss. How attractive is CUSA without Rice, Southern Miss, and UAB? What if realignment continues and four schools leave CUSA for the AAC and UAB is long gone? Tech must plan for what its facing in the next 18 months. If we're not invited to the AAC, someone else in CUSA will be.

    I think we would have to add about $10 million a year to our budget to even be considered.

    We need that just for CUSA.
