Perspective of new possible AAC teams based on Athletic Budget...


The departing 3 schools to the B12 were in the Top 4 in Athletic Budget Revenue.
Cincy-$81.7M, UCF-$68.8M, and Houston-$67.3M. If you see below, we have clearly seen SMU and Memphis mentioned as the next tier targets and as expected they sit at the top of the new AAC.

Remaining AAC Members:
SMU-$70.5M
Memphis-$61.2M
USF-$59.5M
Temple-$59M
ECU-$56.1M
Navy-$Approx 50M
Tulsa-$42.9M
Tulane-$36.5M
WSU-$30M-Hoops Only

Now, in terms of the schools being mentioned across the board:
JMU-$58.2M
ODU-$49.4M
UMASS-$49.3M
Coastal Carolina-$42.1M
Charlotte-$40.7M
FAU-$40.1M
N. Texas-$40M
Buffalo-$38.7M
FIU-$37.4M
__________In terms of All Sports Schools, the above fit the AAC Budget Profile_____________
UAB-$35.7M-BIG Market
App St-$34.9M-Small Market with National Brand
Marshall-$32.3M-Small Market with National Brand
GA State & UTSA-$32.1M-Big markets
Louisiana-$30.2M-Smaller market with history of winning

So if you look at the B12 raid, they took 3 of our Top 4. So, if we followed a similar model, we would promote JMU and bring in UMASS and ODU. Coastal Carolina, Charlotte, and FAU are the next tier.
