Will Cincinnati, if it's still in the AAC, slide west in 2015?
I think it's inevitable unless Navy backs out. If the Midshipmen are gone then I expect Cincinnati will lobby hard to add a 12th member that can be readily slotted into the West so that the bearcats can remain in the East. Meanwhile UConn and Temple will try to insist upon UMass.
There was talk of 'sharing' Florida at one point sending UCF to the West, then it was mentioned that ECU may be the odd man out (having no real rivals) and could be slotted West too, and finally it was mentioned that Navy might prefer 2 games a year in TX/OK/LA for recruiting purposes, but yes Cincy makes the most sense geographically.
