This was a very bad year for the AAC. Definitely hurts the P6 brand they have been pushing.

Hopefully, this is the low point in our program's history.  We didn't win our crappy conference, but at least we are not 0-12.

It seems like this year was pretty even in reference to records, no one really stood out.

I hope they are allowed to play the Bosie - BC game in week zero at a mutually agreed upon neutral site.  What a bummer having your bowl game cancelled.

Looks like a pretty even finish at the p5 level.

 

The  bottom of the sec stunk it up (vandy,usce) but the other loses were close (miss St held Iowa to -5 rushing and somehow lost, and uf and tamu demolished opponents. Obviously bama got rolled last night too. 

Honestly I would put bama and Clemson in their own stratosphere. Then I still think it's the status quo. SEC, B16, ACC, B12, P12

It seems like every year this time we have a, AAC didn't do itself favors thread 😐

Bowl games don’t really gauge the conference because a lot of matchups are bs due to bowl tie ins.

to me-- this is worthless information that has no bearing on anything, other than what conference wins the useless trophy associated with it- which based on this listing would be the ACC at a lackluster 6-5

I think it means more for G5 conferences than for P5 conferences. As a G5 conference, this is your opportunity to show you belong on the big stage, which is the argument that UCF and the AAC has been making the last two seasons.

In the AAC's case, if you think you belong with the P5 conferences (P6 initiative), then your mediocre teams should beat the other G5 conferences' mediocre/good teams (USF lost to CUSA Marshall, Houston lost to independent Army) and the best teams in your conference should be able to beat the better teams in the P5 conferences (UCF lost to SEC LSU, Temple lost to ACC duke, Memphis lost to ACC Wake Forest). 

For reference, last year the AAC went 3-1 against P5 opponents (USF beat Texas Tech, UCF beat Auburn, and Navy beat Virginia) and 2-1 against G5 opponents. Those kind of results are what you would expect from a G5 team that is equal to the P5 conferences.
