Meanwhile back in the real world.  

Aac and Mike Aresco are just going to get a good chuckle and just forward that to their spam folder.  😄

Conference USA has screwed up so much over the years.  Inept leadership with Judy.  Having Texas headquarters and controlling the conference.  Not going to regionalization with the sun belt when they had the shot to do so etc

Now the AAC will pick their teams.  If tr mountain west wants to, they'll pick teams as well .   Sun belt will too

The teams left will be with a bunch of call ups like James Madison , Missouri state and Eastern Kentucky ..yuck

The best hope is that the cusa leftovers all just merge with the sun belt in geographic divisions rather than the callups

If Florida Atlantic is left behind in the call ups league, it will set our program back decades. And leadership would have failed

Agreed!, I hope and pray our leadership wrote and told the AAC we have NO interest in that plan!

Oh and our tv deal is a complete joke.  Having to watch games on stadium and Facebook is beyond annoying.  

But hey at least nobody will see us if we are left behind

No way does the AAC merge with CUSA. They’ll pick teams with a chance of building their brand and right nor I don’t see FAU there yet. I see them grabbing UAB maybe a Texas team and if I were a betting man App State is who I would grab. App State packs their stadium every Saturday and they are a rowdy bunch.

So this would be a 24 team conference? Teams might only see each other once every 6 or 7 years. That doesn't make any sense. Bad enough now with the SEC where it can be years between games. For example, Kentucky played Alabama in 2013, 2016, and 2020. Kentucky hosted Alabama in 2013 and has not seen them in Lexington since that time.

GO OWLS!!!

This REALLY STUPID plan is getting so ridiculed everywhere, typical CUSA!!! WE gotta get outta this "conference". I so hope our people did not endorse that stupid plan that actually leaves an AAC school out, an important one at that!
