If Uconn leaves, who do you want to add

Postby skyscraper » Mon Feb 06, 2017 3:59 pm

Whether it's just one or two teams, who would you add in if Uconn sulks away from the AAC?

For me, just add one back in:
- Wichita State

If gonzaga were 1200 miles and two time zones closer, they'd be a great fit.

AAC won't let them be FB only, UCONN isn't quite ready to kill their FB program. This is a UCONN fan fantasy.

I would say WSU is a no brainer. I would try to add them even if UConn stays. I have a hard time seeing UConn leaving because they couldn't find a landing spot for football. If they left for football I could see the conference also adding a WKU or MAC team.

Wichita State would be the easy choice for Basketball and I like looking at adding Air Force since they are usually a borderline top 25 team and since they are military, they also receive the same respect as a program that Navy does.

Pony Law is right. They aren't going anywhere. The AAC should try to add Wichita St regardless.

They ought to ask BYU how split conference is working for them

The Ivy League would be a natural fit....oh wait, there is that whole academic thing though.

Where do they think they are going other than the Downhill Fast Conference?

They should have added that the Huskies have had to fight to stay relevant, despite having top recruiting classes every year in the nation and consistently finishing in the middle of the AAC Conference

Replace with Wichita in basketball and no real dropoff (obviously would have been an improvement this year). Not sure what that does on football side though?
