No need to go anywhere until what could be final round of expansion

Obviously the only schoos in the AAC to make that final cut would be UCF, Cincinnati , Memphis, maybe Houston maybe SMU. When the dust settles we might end up in a Conference we are far more competitive. As it is we are staying in the AAC unless they kick us out for Temple/Big East like reason and if our attendance continues to go down the tubes We would be crazy to walk away from the new tv revenue and NCAA Tournament units. If we could magically move back to CUSA our attendance might go up with more wins but we would be lucky to break even financially with 40K+ in Fickelen compared to new AAC TV money and NCAA Tournament units.
If we threw our Olympic sports in the CAA first they would have to accept and that is no guarantee as their hotel is full with 10 BB members and 9 Baseball 12 Football. Scheduling as an Independent is no easy task and also would result in mostly losing seasons if we went after money games with P5 or we would have to schedule mostly G5 schools that would not draw in Ficklen except some old CUSA foes like Marshall and Southern Miss.
