It will be interesting who will be "buying" and who will be "selling" the P6 American stock.

SportsBusiness Journal headliners Michael Smith & John Ourand are on their game early this morning, report the AAC "is asking schools to sign a grant-of-rights agreement that theoretically would lock them into the conference for the duration of the next media rights deal." More: "By committing to stay in the AAC, those schools sacrifice the opportunity to jump to a more lucrative arrangement if a power five league like the Big 12 decides to expand. In return, those schools will get a bigger share of the conference’s revenue from its next media deal. The schools also get the stability that comes with a long-term commitment."

So, anyone who signs gets more money in the next contract, but screws themselves if they ever get the chance to leave?

This only makes sense to the teams that know they have zero chance of expansion. USF, Houston, Cincinnati, UConn, Temple and ucif would be idiots to sign this.

I'll go even further, here is who would want to sign this: Tulsa & Tulane. 

I would think everyone else, would want to roll the dice that there might be something better out there.

Can we sign it for the duration of until the Big 10 renegotiates (six years I believe)? If so, then we should sign.

Do Not  Sign.

Free at Last from the AAC...........

P.S. We on this board know nothing. But I hope Mike Kelly has his fingers on the "Expansion" pulse

When the Big East dissolved, WVU worked full time "24-7" to get into another P-5 Conference as did Louisville. They were both prepared & ready when the expansion opportunity presented itself. We need out of the AAC (For a P-5 Conference) not for independence.

Maybe, just maybe USF needs to learn from history.

IMHO, USF & UCF are the top 2 P-5 Expansion targets.

Markets, TV, Location and up & coming programs.
