Filling the void.

Boise State would be a good edition, but the far western conference is weak and far away. I see no need to expand beyond twelve teams. Just more teams to split the same $. I would like to see long standing programs invited. Coastal is a new school built on a junior college. I would not vote for them. Marshall and USM are similar in that the programs are pretty good, but both located in depressed areas. Would not be upset if either or both join the AAC. Don’t not see why anyone would select Coastal over the other two schools. No history. Army and Air Force would be good football only members. The others,
UAB No too close to UA and interest in basketball only. ODU and Charlotte not excited by either. Metro teams with little support. Appalachian yes for sure. Mirrors ECU. Great fan interest and support. Has a great future for growth. App is Located in the sparsely populated mountains, but is a piedmont school when one considers student and alumni numbers. We have a long history with App. The Rajun Cajuns of UL would be a good addition and add a western team.
