This would be great news for USF & UCF if tomorrow we don't hear the opposite.

I can stomach people saying we have no chance, I get the reason why they would say it. However, it makes you look like an idiot when you say UCF is legit but we're not.

UCONN using the same strategy yet they are mentioned consistently as a candidate.

If USF gets passed over during the next round of realignment....Judy and Harlan will have to answer for setting this university back.

Mentioned by whom?  The media?  Because UCONN is a known brand, especially to the media (ESPN) not only for Basketball, but because most of the ESPN staff lives within a short commute to UCONN's campus.

It would actually be kinda funny to see the complaining about travel times from Hartford from most teams and the fans.  Hartford to Lubbock, Austin, Ames.  Doesn't sound so fun

It shows where the real power is - just after the school board of regents chairman said he was opposed to expansion, the school president straightens up and gets back in line.

I think the Big 12 may be waiting for the ACC network or lack of one to shake things up a bit.

If there ever was a year to run the table or even just win the conf, this is it for us.  

Beat FSU and the rest of the AAC.  

Go Bulls!

Either does Lubbock, Austin, Ames to Hartford.

I agree that best case scenario in the short term is no expansion this year.  An other year, if everything goes the way we are hoping, should put us back in the public eye nationally, with an exciting brand on the field and we should have a pretty good year attendance wise.  

Didn't the Big 12 almost completely collapse last time around because they stood around and did nothing while the other Power conferences were proactive?  Seems like they are a disaster just sitting around waiting for something to happen. These clowns are just Oklahoma or Texas being lured away from being a total disaster as a conference.

Regardless of who gets in,  Texas and OU (and their little brothers) bolt the next chance they get.   

This is feeling a lot like the BE.  The minute we get an invite is the minute the established programs decide they want to move on.   

Thought exercise - How long do you think Texas will share a league with UCF or Memphis?   

 

This +100

Dude, you have to be careful what you say on here.  It's like the recruiting board, if the B12 reads this board, and they very well might be perusing the message boards looking at overall program sentiment, it's best to project positivity toward the league we want to be part of.

Good Post. Hopefully, the AAC would be able to get better contracts in the interim
