Yep that's a mind-boggling loss, but they scheduled a really good non-conference schedule.That East Carolina loss could really hurt Cincy. Not a great OOC slate and didn’t make much of the few opportunities they had for quality wins. They need to hope UCLA turns it around to make that win look halfway decent. The Ole Miss win might end up helping them as well.
Nice to see Temple getting some respect.
Really glad to see potentially 4 teams in, in a down year. Memphis has disappointed and Wichita State is way down. I really do think we can see this league getting more bids than the NBE in a couple of years.
A lot would have to go right, but there is a lot of potential. Coaches won't get grabbed year after year in this league like they do for football. If everyone stays where they are for a while, you could be looking at a strong top half of the league and a decent mid tier. Us, Memphis, Cinci and WSu should eventually be competing for the tournament basically ever year. Throw in a good Houston/SMU/UCF/Temple team every couple years and 4-6 bids could become normal.Really glad to see potentially 4 teams in, in a down year.

If UConn and Memphis soon become perennial tournament teams, as I expect them to be, it's not too out of the question.you are very optimistic
Assuming UConn gets back to what we used to be, Penny turns Memphis around, and Marshall doesn't leave Wichita. Then AAC could be a consistent 4 bid league every year with the potential to get 5 or 6. So potentially we could have better years than the Big East, but more often than not I assume Big East will have the advantage. I just think their bottom teams are much better than the AAC bottom.If UConn and Memphis soon become perennial tournament teams, as I expect them to be, it's not too out of the question.
We are likely going to have a nice little league here in the coming years. We just need Wichita St., Houston, Cinci, Temple, UCF to continue their momentum of recent years.
Idk what's up with SMU and I'm not high on Jankovich, but they are another team that are capable of getting back to success relatively soon.
