Cincy down by 3 at UCF also at halftime


These two opening acts for our game are awesome. No such thing as a gimme in the AAC this year
Party at The Wopper!

Both Tulane and Cincinnati were good enough to win road games today but we lose to what might be the worst team in the AAC. Hello bottom half of the AAC, if not the very bottom before this season is over. Will be interesting to see what kind of effort our guys give at Houston this week.

Watching Houston vs Tulsa it certainly appears these are 2 more "middle of the pack" AAC teams. Very unlike what I watched when Memphis played at Wichita State earlier this week. It's early, but looks like Memphis and WSU could be the only 2 AAC teams who might be worthy of at large bids, assuming neither of those teams wins the AAC Tourney

Tulsa's "crowd" is weaker than what we've seen in Moody this year, but I suppose they at least have the argument that they are the smallest school in the AAC

Apparently UNC players have been asked to start attending classes. 8-8 on the season so far.

Maybe we can make a run at Roy Williams?

Roy had an opportunity to pass Dean Smith on the all-time win list today but instead, Clemson won for the 1st time ever in Chapel Hill. Broke a 59 game losing streak!

In other news, Jimmy Whitt hit 7-8 FTs in Arkansas win tonight. Did he ever shoot that well from the FT line while at SMU?

He has a completely new free throw shooting style. Two handed push shot is the best way I can describe it. Pushes it from his chest. Looks weird but he iced the game with two clutch ones today.

I agree with you there. I think there are really only two teams that deserve a bid this season. IMHO, it puts more pressure on Jank to finish top 5.

Just another typically unpredictable night in the AAC as UCF wins it's 1st conference game by crushing Tulane 74-55 and in doing so hands Tulane their 1st home loss of the season.
