Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

AAC dark horse may be NDSU. They have not wanted to move up previously due to the belief that you can’t win a Natty as a G5, which was/is true. They are arguably a state flagship, carry a strong brand and actually bring good basketball, reaching the tourney 4x since 2009. Fargo is certainly no Hous...

I believe that there will be an alumni tailgate in Charlotte, as well as, Miami and Georgia St.

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

His saving grace might be that there very possibly may not be any ships left out to P5 land. The top 2/3s of the conference would leave for the B12 in a heartbeat. Hell, I think we would leave for a B12 without Texas and Oklahoma because it would form the next best of the rest conference like the A...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

The AAC wants to be big time, but they will always be small time., because they do not have regional historic rivalries that the P5 conferences have. What makes the SEC so powerful are the rivalries within the conferences. Respectfully disagree on what's keeping the AAC small time. Rivalries are gr...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

I only ask to understand where the $6 million figure comes from. The AAC payout is an average of $7 million, but they distribute on a sliding scale so that $6 million figure isn’t guaranteed. If you are talking in terms of football only, then a $6 million dollar bump would put us in line with Cincy ...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

You’re sure Gillin would accept? There are those out there who think it’s a no go due to budget concerns, which i don’t necessarily disagree with. I just think it’s something you do and figure it out as you go along. I’m in the camp of I think we could compete now in the AAC even at our current bud...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

I see no reason why the AAC would move off of 11, if we’re being honest App isn’t gonna add money to an AAC TV deal most likely and adding a team would just reduce money from the other 11. That being said, I still find it wild that the AAC isn’t the goal for most App fans. The regional stuff is a p...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

It’s funny…I read message boards (I like to see if our fans sound as crazy as others). Some of us think we’re shoe-ins for the AAC because we have good football. Georgia State and UAB think they’re shoe-ins because “marketz”. JMU thinks they’re shoe-ins because of their facilities. AAC fans don’t w...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

We all want APP to get the best players that they can. And by in large, we do. The record and the company that we keep in that category supports that. Will we occasionally win a legit head to head battle with some P5s? Yes. Will it happen consistently, doubtful. It’s the nature of the beast. The rat...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Your list of players are based on current day. Sure, if we had the ability to foreshadow these guys development then what your saying would work. But it just isn’t practical. You list all these states that we need to hit to get eyes on kids, but who is going to pay for that? We aren’t swimming in m...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

So let me ask you this about the guys listed above. As giddy as you get to see our commits with P5 offers. Would you have been just as giddy, or concerned that we offered a kid whose only other offer was Wisconsin Whitewater or Concordia St. I’m guessing you wouldn’t have been thinking these guys wo...

Re: Getting some respect on scheduling

Recruiting is a 24/7/365 game so it factors into everything you do. Including scheduling. So playing outside of your geographic footprint can be cost prohibitive. BYU is a national brand. They have produced Heisman Trophy winners and Super Bowl MVPs. Most of this was done before the whole P5/G5 spli...

Re: Getting some respect on scheduling

The benefit is they would sell a lot of tickets. Maybe they are already...I did not check their attendance. USF I think struggles with attendance. That is completely true in the case for USF. They play in a 70k seat stadium so there really is no capacity issues. Although, I don’t think that the upp...

Re: Getting some respect on scheduling

Nice that all the other programs mentioned that BYU should play are P5, and three SEC. I'd personally like to see Central Florida on App's schedule for a home and home. Either UCF or USF would be great. But would they want to? I mean, there isn’t much benefit for them unless they were looking at ge...

By no means do I say this to be argumentative towards your home and home comment but personally I don’t see any reason for a series like this. Nice article I guess but it’s not like BYU is at the top of the G5 mountain. Is there anything to gain from a recruiting standpoint to play them? While it w...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

We can and do take our cuts and offer, “better” players. You miss 100% of the recruits you don’t offer. But they have to be realistic in where they put their time and effort.
