Every fan will receive a plastic oil derrick with a plume (like a spout of oil) coming out of the top with the word UConn on it, signifying we blew them out in our last game there.

TULSA VS. UCONN | FEBRUARY 6 | 6:00 PM TIP-OFF | REYNOLDS CENTER | FAREWELL UCONN
TULSA HOSTS UCONN FOR THE LAST TIME THIS THURSDAY AT THE REYNOLDS CENTER​
WE'RE SAYING FAREWELL TO UCONN!
This Thursday night will be the last time UCONN plays in the Reynolds Center as a member of the American Athletic Conference!
In proper farewell fashion, we're blacking out the arena, so be sure to wear your black TU Gear!​

Whatever. The feeling is more than mutual.

UConn = Still, the only AAC team that has ever done anything in March. Wake me up when another AAC team is knocking on the door of a final four. (lol).

Still stole an AAC tourney championship too as bad as these past few years have been.

Enjoy mediocracy and the occasional first-round exit as an 11 seed Tulsa! (4>0 forever)

As much as I like watching UConn win on YouTube it would be nice to actually win in the present. The rah rah we have a better program is fun but we legit have been terrible and even worse irrelevant.

Maybe they'll hand out miniatures of our 2014 national championship trophy? It's the first NCAA championship trophy for the AAC and now that we're leaving it will likely be the only basketball championship the league ever wins.

Houston will keep crashing men’s golf though!

Eh, I take this as a sign of respect and appreciation more than anything else. Since they took the time acknowledge our departure we should give them a loss as a token of our mutual affection.

We need to quietly walk away and thank the American Conference for the years we were in the conference. And still keep some of these teams on the schedule in both basketball and football. Why? It is the classy thing to do and you never know.

The AAC has 13 NCAA wins
We have 7 of them .
The AAC is still being compensated for 2014 and 2016
So we leave with our heads held high
The AAC loses its primary connection and any claim to their mother conference the Old Big East and that history . With apologies to USF and Cinncy they were late comers to the party.
