Wichita State accepts invite to AAC!

2 posts in this topic

Wichita State accepts invite to join the American Athletic Conference in all Olympic sports.  Obviously not football, as they don't have a program.  This move offsets Navy, who is football-only.

The AAC is really shaping up hoops-wise!  


UCONN had a down year, and they're getting hit with some big time transfers and de-commits.  I think Kevin Ollie is done there.  

Cincinnati is a year-in, year-out NCAA tourney team.  

Memphis with Tubby Smith at the helm will start trending back in the right direction.  

SMU is reloading, and will be a force for years.  

Wichita State returns everyone from this year's team, and will compete from Day 1 in the AAC.  

UCF made it to the finals of the NIT.  Johnny Dawkins is a great fit there.

Houston was a bubble team.  Kelvin Sampson has them headed in the right direction.

Temple has lots of tradition, but they just need to can their coach... although they're bringing in their best recruiting class in a decade.

Tulsa is a hit or miss team with a lot of talent and a good coach.  Frank Haith will get them back to where they need to be.

ECU, Tulane, and USF are all dumpster fires.


Tier 1: UCONN, Cincinnati, Memphis, Wichita State, SMU

Tier 2: Temple, Tulsa, Houston, UCF

Tier 3: ECU, Tulane, USF

Jus saw this the other day. Great move for WSU and the AAC. Brings another consistent tournament team to the conference. They should send 4 teams yearly. I wish ECU could bring it. I always liked ECU.

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
