Ok...I've always wondered if we have a shot at AAU, and after looking at the criteria, I doubt it happens anytime soon.
I've got the link for their information and was looking at one of the attachments for membership. Phase I indicators include things like Memberships in the National Academies (National Academies of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and Institute of Medicine of National Academies).
We don't have anyone in the first two, and only 2 members in the medicine one.
Then looking at total number of doctoral degrees that we confer a year, we are at about half of what Boston University is, which was just added.
Just don't see us making that step any time soon based on the selection criteria.
Maybe I'm wrong and the info I'm looking at isn't correct. Hope so.
The one point that moose stated that is not speculation but factual is:
UC is the only non-AAU school, however UC meets AAU criteria and is in consideration for AAU membership.
I am aware of UC's academic status regarding AAU. GaTech was added to AAU recently after being qualified to be admitted for a long time. Qualified/considered does not mean an invite is forthcoming.
The wait can be years of not decades as the AAU generally doesn't grow it's numbers by adding new members, usually a school has to be removed for someone new to move in.
Dartmouth is still waiting for AAU status.
Georgia Tech was added in 2010. Boston Univeristy was just added a couple months ago. It'll be a couple years before they invite anyone else IMO.
Iowa State is not going anywhere because of the GoR. If they get out of it you bet your you know what that UT and OK will be headed to the Pac 12 along with their little sisters TT and Okie State.
Thanks, now I see what you're trying to get at. Unfortunately, I don't see a green box to click.
Why are we told to not judge Islam by the actions of a few extremists, but judge all gun owners by the actions of a few killers?

I'd appreciate better knowing what you're doing, I just don't see it.
on my browser....looks like a green envelope. It's the leftmost icon on the line...to the left of the title. It may have a little orange person on it if you've posted on that topic. It turns green when there is new content.
And if you click on the green envelope, it will automatically take you to the first thread posted since the last time you were on the thread.
GO BEARCATS!! FIGHT!!! FIGHT!!!! FIGHT!!!!!
Once you get this figured out it's going to be like switching from the old "clicker" TV remote control ( I am sure there are a few old timers on here who remember those) to your current TV remote.
I am not saying that, just that based on Gee's statement, who else is there in the Midwest? Carnegie Tech?
Rutgers Undergrad - UC Law School - follow me on Twitter @RUJerry for news about UC, RU and other sports information.
Question: As far as our ability to compete with O$U in football for recruits, would we be better served being in an expanded Big 12 or in the Big 10?
I find myself thinking Big 12
