  1. NORTH TEXAS Pros: No C-USA school is doing a better job of investing in facilities than UNT, which has also earned some buzz as a future member of the Mountain West Conference. The football program is ascendant and it’s not inconceivable that UNT could work as a football-only member. Cons: The AAC already features SMU in the Dallas-Fort Worth market and there’s not much love between the two programs. Even with a beautiful football stadium and a winning team, attendance continues to lag for UNT football. The Mountain West Conference may be a better possibility down the road. read
  2. Re: Independent vs Conference#536665 By cruzan_flame13 - September 14th, 2017, 8:48 pm I see us going the route as Notre Dame did back a few decades ago. I'm not saying we will be identical to Notre Dame, especially the fact that the game isn't the same as it was. I do feel we will go the independent route for awhile and continue to contain great connections with other school AD's that are close with AD McCaw. At the same time I see this helping our Olympic sports and the blessi
  3. https://www.ctpost.com/sports/jeffjacobs/article/Jeff-Jacobs-As-the-season-dies-it-s-worth-13365185.php I ran across this article (and it's not the only one on this subject) and it got me to thinking.....what would happen if UConn decided to drop football and just focus on basketball? (A lot of people think it would be a smart move....can't say I disagree) What would happen if there was a vacancy in the AAC eastern division with Navy sitting in a geographically mismatched AAC Western division?
  4. The highlight of the article was JMU’s head Coach stating that they wouldn’t be moving up to the FBS level unless given a perfect opportunity. He then goes on to say that the FCS Playoffs are better than any mid-major bowl anyway. An interesting statement. Does C-USA have a future and should North Texas be a part of it? http://pilotonline.com/sports/college/elsewhere/article_b0a126b4-e374-5b05-8f2b-1900ecc0d63e.html
  5. An interesting and funny take on why UCF’s national title claim isn’t as goofy as it sounds. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/21954302/ucf-not-first-school-call-national-champion
  6. AAC is making case for being the new P5 conference: http://collegefootballnews.com/2017/07/four-reasons-why-american-power-is-absurd-mwcwire-kenerly
  7. The American Athletic Conference unanimously voted Friday morning to add Wichita State as a league member for the 2017-18 season. Wichita State is expected to accept the AAC's invitation and leave the Missouri Valley Conference, where the Shockers have been members since 1945, sources said. Wichita State will join the AAC in all sports, except football, giving the AAC both a 12-team football and basketball league. The AAC has 11 all-sports members (Cincinnati, UConn, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, South Florida, SMU, Temple, Tulane, Tulsa and UCF) and Navy is a football-only member
  8. Here is a summary of the CUSA recruiting classes. http://collegefootballnews.com/2017/2017...s-rankings C-USA ranking 2nd in G5 group, just behind AAC (SMU's conference). http://www.sbnation.com/college-football...g-day-2017 Overall not too bad from a conference perspective. We beat out Mountain West and Mac/Belch
  9. If I were the commissioner of the American Athletic Conference, I would be nervous right now. I would be nervous because when the Big 12 announced last week that it was going to jump back into the expansion waters, the list of likely candidates to join included Houston, Cincinnati, Memphis, Connecticut, UCF, BYU and maybe Colorado State. Five of those schools are members of the 12-team AAC. What if the Big 12 gets really frisky and takes four of those schools? Can the AAC, which has been the strongest conference outside of the Power Five, survive such a blow? That’s why I would be ne
  10. You heard it here first. Looks like the AAC has to replace three. Probably Southern Miss, FIU and Marshall is my best guess. Maybe Rice or SMU for academics.
  11. Here the complete look at the AAC East-West divisions: East Division UCF Cincinnati UConn East Carolina USF Temple West Division Houston Memphis Navy SMU Tulane Tulsa In addition to the divisional alignment, the AAC also announced the tiebreak procedure for the 2014 season — a conference championship game will be held in 2015 as the league moves to 12 teams.

  12. Yet another program finds itself in the midst of a scheduling quandary as a result of the P5 conferences decision to schedule games that will enhance the profile of their resumes in order to compete in the College Playoff system set to begin this fall. This time however, the school that finds itself in the cross hairs of this decision, is the storied and powerful independent, BYU. When the ACC announced that BYU would not count as P5 competition for scheduling purposes within the ACC schedule mandates, a potential major hurdle was placed in front of the traditionally competitive BYU p
  13. I posted an article I came across from the Tulsa post game press conference after their loss to UTSA in another thread and it got me thinking. I think all of us who have been following UNT recruiting for some time would acknowledge that programs like Rice, Tulsa, SMU, Houston, Colorado State, Tulane, etc have had our number on recruits for quite some time. Much of this was due to the losing and lack of facilities but conference affiliation also played a large part. I think specifically, the privates have done a good job against us touting the dollar value of their education and the assoc
  14. We thought The American's bowl future would at least be similar bowl to what C-USA previously had, but it looks like it'll be a lot worse. Power 5 conferences have taken C-USA's top 2 non-Hawaii bowl tie-ins, the Liberty signing SEC and Big12 and the Big Ten signing with the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth. The Liberty Bowl hosted the SEC under the previous contract, but now adds the Big 12 as an opponent. There has been an overwhelming desire for the elite conferences to play each other in bowls, and The American is becoming a repeated casualty. Read more: http://www.voodoofive.com/2
  15. TULSA FINDS ITSELF in an odd situation this fall as a member of Conference USA but with an eye on the American Athletic Conference. The Golden Hurricane will be the favorite in C-USA football this fall and one of the favorites in C-USA men's basketball this winter. However, what's happening in the American Athletic Conference will be important to Tulsa's long-term success. TU will enter its final school year in C-USA as the king of the league. The Golden Hurricane has won 49 conference championships in C-USA, more than twice as many as the second-place school during the same period.
  16. The American Athletic Conference is working on a new lineup of bowl contracts starting with the 2014 football season, and commissioner Mike Aresco said Tuesday that he anticipates contracts for seven teams, including a new bowl game at Marlins Park in Miami. "We're moving pretty steadily on that, and we think it's very likely to happen for Miami," said Aresco, who said he has talked with the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences about lining up a team on the other half of the new game. "It's something we really are excited about. We feel it's workable and would be good for our conference. It's ex
  17. The main goal of college athletics' Realign-mageddon, which mercifully came to a halt this past year following a lengthy reign of terror, was improving image. Sure, it had to do with increased revenue streams, better access to bigger bowls, greater exposure and a bunch of other stuff, but image essentially was everything. Improve your image and everything else follows. How does a college athletic program improve its image? One way is to move to a cooler neighborhood. So a bunch of teams with a chance to move did. Big 12 teams jumped to the SEC. Big East teams hopped to the Big 12 a
  18. Today marks the official start of the American Athletic Conference as a successor to the Big East in football and other sports. Of the eight teams that played in the first Big East football season in 1991, only Temple will remain, and that’s a Temple program that was banished to the MAC for a spell and has played in one bowl game in the past 30 years. Most of the other teams are former mid-majors from Conference USA or former independents or I-AA schools. I’m sorry, but this conference is doomed, and there are several reasons why. One is that, after 2013, the American Athletic lose
  19. You know all that talk about conference realignment and schools joining new conferences and new conferences appearing out of thin air? Remember how the Big 12 almost died and the original Big East did die before spawning a pair of shiny new conferences? Well, quite a bit of that takes effect today, July 1st, 2013. Since I do this for a living and I can barely keep track of who is changing to what league and when, I’ve decided to put together a breakdown to help those of you that are getting just as confused as I am.
