A little misleading as it is an opinion blog by someone who thinks BYU belongs in the AAC. However, assuming he is right, what will this do? BYU joining the AAC makes sense in his arguments especially on being relevant. With their indpendence, BYU is stuck with some crappy late season games. Joining the AAC would put them in a MWC-esce league that doesn't limit them to the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones. They would major markets on the east coast while maintaining a Mountain West feel. This would be the AAC's 12th member. Buy why have a team so far away? The AAC probably wouldn't do this unless it knew a couple of its current members were off to bigger and better conferences. This could open up the opportunity for a little more western expansion. For example, losing Cincinnati, Connecticut, and may Central Florida, the AAC could pick up Army, BYU, and Air Force. It would keep the west division strangely contiguous. It may look like this:

East: South Florida, East Carolina, Navy, Army, Temple, Memphis
West: SMU, Houston, Tulane, Tulsa, Air Force, BYU

I'm not sure it helps BYU's case. Now if the previously mentioned schools don't leave, but the AAC still adds BYU and Air Force, they may add other western schools to get to 18 (maybe Boise St, San Diego St, Nevada?) for 3 divisions of 6 to regionalize some of the games.

East: Army, Navy, Temple, Connecticut, Cincinnati, East Carolina
South: South Florida, Central Florida, Tulane, Memphis, Houston, SMU
West: Tulsa, Air Force, BYU, Boise St, San Diego St, Nevada

Not to be a thread Nazi...but why did this need its own thread when we have a BYU destination thread?
