I'm shocked if true and Louisiana Tech didn't get in over one of the other 3 Texas schools.   I've heard big things on them and FAU adding to facilities and such.

Better TV deal and bowl selections. Also better conference opponents. Iím willing to wager there is a plan to renovate the stadium in the works †since itís 10 years it opened and other than the locker rooms and sports medicine it really hasnít a major upgrade to it. Moving conferences will help with that with the better tv deals and revenue sharing.†

I mean obviously but that is a mistake cusa made.  You have to get both. . .

I get it with marshall. They are broke.  But I thought la tech was going to add a lot from the people I talked to around their campus.

If the sun belt adds Marshall , southern miss, wku and la tech we could see markets vs on field product.   I hope we and the other market adds improve in that case.

We need to get a new basketball arena and try to actually win in that sport now too. Would be long overdue

Letís look at this way. FAU as a university comes out the winners in this move. Besides the better TV deal that AAC has that will help Athletics you often see commercials for a school like Temple or a soon to be leaving UCF come on during a football program with AAC schools. And this is a terrific opportunity for President Kelly and the university to promote the school and get the name out there to potential students.†

big time FAU fan but some of us are getting too cocky and looking down on other teams when we are a nobody. When the deal gets officially announced; I will believe it.
