Saw that shi+ coming from a mile away. He isn't commenting on talent. He's talking about notoriety. Cincy is good, but fans of teams in other conferences aren't demanding to see home and home series with them. Once past UConn and Memphis, the AAC doesn't have any teams that move the excitement needle for fans of other schools. Sorry, but sometimes the truth is the truth.

What dude?

UC is having no problem getting good basketball teams on the schedule for H&Hs. Unfortunately, reality doesn't seem to line up with your 'truth', which is actually just your opinion since it can't be backed up at all. Unless you are 8 years old, everyone knows UC's program has been considered very good for the better part of the last half century. We don't have an issue with notoriety at all.

In college basketball, there are the blue bloods (Kentucky, UNC, Kansas, UConn, UCLA, Indiana, Duke, UofL, etc.) and then you have a second tier of great programs that have stood the test of time which includes UC. If you want to make an argument against that, be my guest. Try to use some actual facts this time. I don't think your personal opinion on basketball carries much weight.

The fact that the AAC doesn't have a challenge actually just hurts the bottom basketball schools in the conference more than UC, UConn, or Memphis. None of those schools have any issue with scheduling high level games.

Same with Temple. Over the last 4 seasons Temple has scheduled regular season home and homes with Georgetown, Texas, Maryland, Duke and Kansas and played in tournaments against Georgia, Clemson, Purdue, Wichita State and Syracuse. This year they are in the C vs C tournament with UNLV, Stanford and Duke.

Temple has done fine for years scheduling games on their own, no need for a conference challenge to get quality teams on the schedule and to come to Philly.

RE: Checkmate AAC
Really confused about numerous things in this thread.

1: Who gives a damn if the AAC has a made for TV conference challenge? People getting their panties in a bunch over nothing.

2: Syracuse and UConn are practically basketball peers and is nothing like the Texas Tech/Texas rivalry in football.

3: Grow some thicker skins people. Yes the title of the thread could've been different but come on. This entire thread was a bash fest with no real info being swung in either direction. Just a bunch of fallacies that made 0 sense at all.

Syracuse isn't anywhere close to UConn in the past 16 years. The rest is just history.

UConn in the modern day eclipses Syracuse and most others by a long shot. Only Duke comes to mind as a peer currently.

*Except for the fact that UCONN has a pesky losing record to the Orange (even recently)

Temple and UC both have great programs. They're both great basketball schools, and UC is also a great football school.
