AAC expansion

With UCONN leaving, the AAC will have only eleven members for the football season. The conference has already said they're not looking to expand and already got a waiver to have a football championship game with 11 schools, but that's probably not going to last. Dayton should be added immediately in basketball and either Boise St/App State/Army/Air Force/BYU should be added in football to get back to twelve members. Not sure why the AAC hasn't reached out to Dayton already because they would be a fantastic addition as long as they are interested. Discuss

Army would be a good choice since Navy is already in. Is the AAC a better basketball conference then the A10? Some might say no.

The money says it is.
Truth is that there is zero chance of the AAC inviting Dayton; not because of how good it's basketball program is; but because it does nothing for a TV contract. Some school like FIU, football and basketball program, big TV market will get an invite as BYU is a pipe dream

Charlotte is the best option IMO. #21 market, football team has a brand new expandable stadium and the program is getting better, and basketball already has a long history with many of the teams in the AAC going back to the old C-USA days.
