Challenge is any of the football teams worth adding bring baggage in...

hoops/other sports (BYU, Army, Boise St) if we bring an all sports team into the AAC. If I am ESPN, I only pay the AAC the same or more $$$ if the team brings value in the money sports which are football and hoops. So I get adding 1 sport only schools like BYU and VCU/Gonzaga. Otherwise the AAC product gets watered down. I suspect if the AAC makes a move, it will be an arrangement like this. Only wild card is a school like Liberty with a huge multi billion endowment paying a big entry fee and agreeing to take no media payout through 25 for example and proving they belong. If any school can afford it, it is them.

Issue with adding a ODU or Charlotte or Georgia State is they are longer term projects.
