Who decides which Sun Belt team will be the worst when they're scheduled?
It's not practical to re-rank the entire spectrum of D1 every year and it's impossible to predict the following year in either case.
The general spectrum is that established Power-5 conference teams are slotted into historical tiers followed by Group of 5 (of which the AAC might be above the other 4 given they used to be a "power" conference) followed by D1AA which is basically the old D2 with better basketball teams.
