Re: How Will AAC Fare in Tourney

Doesn't matter how bad they want out. They aren't going anywhere. They won that NC based on the talent from when they were still in the BE. They won't win another one. They're head and shoulders above any other AAC team for an ACC expansion. Not. First off as I have posted several times there will ...

Re: How Will AAC Fare in Tourney

However, the truth is, the conference goes as football goes. Basketball doesn't move the needle. Its nice to say AAC has won some MBB and WBB national championships, but at the end of the day, that really has no impact. The AAC's new contract now pays us almost double what the Big East gets. AAC go...

Re: Ron Hunter rumored as a target for Tulane Vacancy

I don't think he'd be a bad hire, but he's not one I'd get excited about, either. Definitely an uptick from MD.

Houston & UCF are our last two hopes. I could see Houston making a final four run and UCF could win some games. I root for the conference but i despise the fans of Houston/UCF/Cinci/Memphis who all believe they are SEC-esque powerhouse programs. Uconn is probably the worst/most humorous. Their fans...

Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

As I stated earlier CBS is being pushed to the curb here by ESPN and is going to get very little content form the AAC. so right now the number is actually under $7 million a school. The additional CBS dollars will likely only bring it up to $7 million or just a little more. I hope your right that i...

James Jones (Yale) is available now. Just saying. He was pretty much the top name from 3 years ago. I'm not interested in James Jones. He has a career record (all at Yale) of 310-276. He has no known exposure to the South (recruiting). About the only box his name checks is that he's had moderate su...

This is a pretty good article about Coaches that would welcome a step up. In some cases, they've already coached at a higher level. I particularly like Musselman, Oates and Odum.

Re: Great Fear The Wave Interview with OC Will Hall

In addition to his gaffe on the kicking game he also said more than once that we are young. That is not the case especially on offense. Field goal kicking has been wanting; the rest of the kicking game has been pretty good. Even at that, I don't think Fritz likes to kick FGs anyway (which is perhap...

If we were going to sign Langton we would have. Even MD had moved on.
He signed in November, during the early signing period.

Re: New AAC TV Contract Done

I would be lying if I said that I didn't secretly hope for at least $10M per team. Even though the AAC isn't a heavy hitter in terms of brands, the value is there for the extra ~$3M in terms of both MBB and FB. Basically, I'm disappointed even with the 4x increase. EDIT: Also, it allows ESPN to ter...

Re: Samir going pro

He will play in Europe, I'm sure. He's not close to the talent that Reynolds or Frazier have, and they can barely find minutes in the NBA. I wish him the best, and appreciate that he played his heart out while at Tulane.
