Great move for FAU. Not what the Big East was when Coach was at FAU. Neither in name nor teams. The landscape has changed so much. The American won't be what it was either, with the loss of UCF, Houston, and Cincy to the Big 12.

I like the move, but not the Big East referenced by Coach when he built FAU.

Big East 2003
Miami
West Virginia
Pitt
Va Tech
Boston College
Syracuse
Rutgers
Temple

AAC 2021
Cincy
Houston
UCF
ECU
Tulsa
SMU
Memphis
Navy
Temple
USF

GO OWLS!!!

No matter how you cut it the AAC is literally the current rendition of the Big East. Just under a different name. I believe it is even the same legal entity.

This was Howardís dream. We did it. HUGE accomplishment. Sky really is the limit here.

At least FAU is moving forward and not staying static in what has become the WORST Conference. 9 of 14 teams from last year have been invited elsewhere and bailed instantly at the chance!

I am actually shocked that WKU and MTSU chose to stay and EVEN MORE SHOCKED about Liberty wanting in!!!! They and WKU should dominate in all ways for as long as they stay.

Yea itís the best move we could have made to move up a division. Presumably, the next stop is a P5 conference but who knows what college athletics will look like by then. I think that the USFL and SEC will eventually merge.†
