AAC looking for new ways to pay for the $2.7 billion back pay players settlement.

https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/556294 ... ed_article

At the Group of 5 level, schools will see less money distributed from the NCAA in order for the organization to cover the back pay damages from the House settlement, and the new massive CFP contract won’t provide much more money for their leagues.

So everything is up for discussion, including the possibility of renaming a conference or adding a sponsor to the existing name.

“These are the conversations we need to have,” Pernetti said..

New AAC commissioner Tim Pernetti told The Athletic that he brought up the idea of conference naming rights during his interview for the conference’s top job earlier this year, and it remains a point of discussion. With a background in sports business and private equity, Pernetti has been very open to finding new revenue streams for college sports.

“Nothing should be off the table,” Pernetti said.

Pernetti believes brands and companies have a strong affinity for college sports, and there are ways that partnerships can strengthen programs at a time of great change.

Tidy Bowl, Waste Management, and ServPro are all interested. "Clean up the Crap", "Take out the Trash" and "Like it Never Happened" all considered as conference mottos.

Goldring needs to cough up for us. Watching Tulane made me drink out of wrath. Now I drink at football for fun. Either way he’s making $
