Navy’s defeat over Memphis gave the AAC 4 ranked teams, but deep down inside, I know a few of you was hoping Memphis won out and went to the playoffs. I mean the 3 victories over 3 ranked teams, beat two P5 schools including one highly ranked SEC team that beat Alabama, and a conference title could of put them pretty close. Not to mention there are plenty of potential upsets left for this season and many teams in the top ten play each other. Making the playoffs and being at least competitive in the first game would solidify the AAC as worthy of being a Power Conference member.  But In reality the Navy’s win gave us a guaranteed 4 ranked teams and Memphis was a long shot anyways. But it would have been awesome if they made the playoffs.

Memphis would never have sniffed the playoffs.  Put down the pipe.

To be honest. It was a very slim long shot for Memphis to make the playoff. Ole Miss keeps losing now would have hurt their chances. Would have to have all the top 10 collapse with 2 loses. They need to just expand the playoff to 8 teams with one guaranteed spot for a G5 school. If they finish in top 15.

Agree with BullDaly, the ONLY way a G5 team makes the playoffs is if it is expanded to 8 teams or more

Um you must of forgot that we was the 2nd ranked team at one point in our existence, not because we were the 2nd best team but mad top ten teams started losing. Memphis was ranked #13 and had 3-4 teams ahead of them lose and one team almost lose to a Vandy team that got spanked by Houston. It wasn't that much of a long shot for Memphis.

The committee would never shut out 2, 3 if the Holy Golden Rollers made it, P5 conferences from the playoffs ..... Just ain't gonna happen.

Agree with Trip.  Playoffs are for the top 4 teams.  No way a G5 team ever has a schedule to be considered top 4.

We need a deep conference. I like where we are. The top third is legit.

The problem is that you have might SEC with bama and the baby bama teams that walk on water, those other 4 conferences that get to suckle the tit of the sec, and then you have the gang of 5. We not only need more separation from this gang of rascals, but we also need our conference to be embraced by the money gods on the network mountains. Without acceptance the AAC will be looked on as an outlier, and we will be playing by ourselves.
