His argument seems to be more about the committee not being aware of how good the AAC is. I don’t think the committee really cares since they only look at it as “P5 or bust”.

His argument is correct regardless of how the committee thinks. Articles like this can do no harm. We need voices and money.

Obviously, this. Spot on.

This is a preemptory move by Aresco to get it in the committee members' minds that if Cincinnati beats Memphis in the last game of the season and then Memphis beats Cincinnati in the AAC CG (or vice-versa), Appalachian State shouldn't get to go to the Cotton Bowl because they only have one loss. That's really the scenario that's keeping him up at night. If one team sweeps both games in two weeks, we're a lock for the NY6, but if they split, we could very well get screwed by the exact bias Aresco is pointing out.
