Re: New AAC TV deal

+1,000. This selective GOR issue (UCF, USF, Cincy, Memphis) is just the tip of the iceberg. I suspect we will see similar delineation between schools in other conferences, including the P5. In the end it won’t be Aresco that decides, it will be ESPN and other outlets. These same animal spirits will...

Re: New AAC TV deal

This was in the other article: "The conference is asking schools to sign a grant-of-rights agreement that theoretically would lock them into the conference for the duration of the next media rights deal." That again says that all schools are being asked to sign GOR's. Let me ask: What benefit does ...

Re: New AAC TV deal

Also, the AAC made a mistake by adding Tulsa and ECU, as those programs were added solely for their on the field performance - which is something that should never be done - and look how that has turned out for the conference. Those two slots are extremely valuable and will come back to haunt the c...

They should have never let Ruffin McNeill go. He's on the OU staff now. They could do a lot worse than bringing him back.
He probably wouldn't come back and I don't think anyone would blame him.

Re: 2019 Schedule

The dates of the conf games is not decided yet. There's no way we're playing three straight road games. There's also two weekends between the FCS game and the game @Army.

Re: 2019 Schedule

FIU, Army, Navy and SMU should not be tough games in year 4. Three of these are road games, so that will make it harder. Of course, add in Tulsa, UConn and FCS Missouri State, all at Yulman, which should be three wins. Given a misstep in those first four, that's still six already. UCF/Auburn nope M...

Re: 2019 Schedule

Who will be Tulsa’s and UConn’s HCs? 5. Can Tulane defeat FIU? 6. How will Tulane perform in away game...

I envy you guys that had the time to watch! What is "tought", though? I guess I need to be "taught" that word or maybe SDSU "taut" Tulane in the second half.

Back to work for me. ROLL WAVE!
I'm virtually certain he meant "tough", and he's right.

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Looking at Rivals recruiting site, it should have been no surprise why Houston, Cinci & UCF are that much better than us. Houston has finished 7th, 1st & 6th over the last 3 years with (1) 5 star and (3) 4 star recruits. Cinci has finished 1st, 7th & 2nd with (2) 4 star recruits. UCF has finished 3...

The American Conference has 7 bowl tie-ins. We currently have 6 teams already bowl eligible with SMU and Tulane at 5-5. If it gets to a choice between SMU and Tulane both at 6-6, I would think SMU would be chosen because they beat us. Imagine finally getting bowl eligible and not having anywhere to...

Re: Houston Tix

I'll be there too, but I'll probably be late due to work + Houston traffic.

It's amazing that this game could be a blowout by Tulane or a blowout by Houston and neither outcome would be particularly surprising.

Re: Tulane blows out USF and Kansas’ coach is fired the next days. Coincidence?

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy we won and all. But c'mon, WF's record here is still putrid, and it'll take a string of convincing wins and a winning season to at least get any interest from other schools... I don't believe Kansas would be remotely interested in a 58 year-old coach whose head coachin...

If Tulane wins out and SMU loses again, say hello to Tulane in the AAC title game

That would be interesting. On one hand, it would be great for Tulane to make it. On the other hand, a 7-5 team in the conference title game isn't that great for conference optics.

Maybe. The AD tweeted that he wants a HC with head coaching experience, so that knocks out a few from that group.

Re: ESPN Invitational Playoff Rankings

None of this is about fairness or equity, but sports fans should know that by now.

That being said, in addition to UCF's situation, it's interesting that Houston did not make the list, especially given that it defeated previously undefeated USF.
