    Do you REALLY want to go five years wtihout an auto bid to the NCAA Tournament and depend on your other sports to get at large bids.

    And, get NO NCAA Tourney money?

    Understand the ramifications of starting a new league.

    No, I would not...But if the Big East can split and the AAC can be formed, then there may be a way to do this..
    Lets face it the AAC did not exist a couple years ago, now they do and I do not believe they lost any bid opportunities..

    What is our take on the NCAA money? Isn't it some five figure amount?

    2017

    This is the year the new conference will take shape because this is the year that the group of 6 western schools in CUSA will have 5 years together. They can form a new league with a few other schools and not lose autobid status.

    If we are not in that group by then, we will be once they leave CUSA. No way we aren't a part of the new SWC.

    Even if we get in invite from C=USA I was thinking the same thing... Take the Western teams, add StAte, Texas ST., and NMSt.

    Because the AAC doesn't have to worry about an automatic bid in men's and women's basketball.
    UCONN plays there.

    In a new league, all teams would be considered at large as it is in the AAC.

    I believe those numbers are more likely this year's average football season attendance.

    It may be attendance but it is lies, damn lies and more lies.
    ULMost 18K
    LaTurd@R 20K
    North Texas 19K

    We should be reporting 40K if they are reporting those numbers, what a joke.
