Quote:Has moving up a weight class to the American — with better talent and coaches — exposed some of Wichita State’s deficiencies it was able to hide in the Missouri Valley?

Parrish: “When they were in the Missouri Valley last year, there was one other top-100 KenPom team in the league. Now in the American, there’s basically four others plus Wichita State. So what is happening is Wichita State is playing quality opponents more regularly in January and February and where that catches up to you is that when you’re playing sub-100 teams like you were in the Valley, you have an off-night and that means you win by six instead of 16. It doesn’t mean you lose. So now you’re playing these top-100 teams and especially on the road, if you don’t play well then you will lose.”

Thompson: “I think that’s an easy narrative. But they know what it takes. This is one of the best programs in the country. Is the conference a step-up on a night-to-night basis? Yes. But they’ve just got to settle in. It’s no time to panic. They’ve been through it and they’re not going to panic. They’ve just got to fight through it.”

Bilas: “When you play in a better league, you’re going to get challenged a little more, especially on the road and that’s mainly what’s happened. They’re playing against bigger bodies and better athletes more consistently. So when you go on the road and you’re Wichita State with their reputation, then of course people are going to try to take a swing at them.”

Rothstein: “For a long time Wichita State was a really, really good team in a league except maybe Creighton that didn’t have another team that was a high-caliber team. This year you have several teams in the American that are NCAA-worthy and the ones behind them are still plenty capable. It’s just a lot tougher league.”

Adams: People who thought Wichita State was going to come into this league and have teams kiss their ring, that was never going to happen. Think about it: Wichita State has 11 new teams to prepare for every single game. The rest of the league has only one new preparation. That lack of familiarity with the league and what the strengths and weaknesses are of a team matters. You can study all of the video you want, but until you go into these actual matchups and learn the nuances of these teams and coaches, then it’s just guesswork. I think that’s what a lot of people don’t recognize is how hard it is for a new team to make this kind of transition.”

I guess this makes the point both sides are trying to make? Of course the AAC is better, but there is something more than just the AAC that is causing some problems. Is the AAC the only reason Framkamp is shooting 36% from three, when last year he shot 44%?

It's just a troll game man. Nobody ever said the AAC wasn't better than the MVC (the topic of the degree to how much they are better at winning games has been broached). What AAC fans won't admit/can't admit, is the fact that Wichita State is a shadow of it's former self for reasons NO ONE can put a finger on but everyone has an idea.

The reason AAC fans can't admit it is due to jealousy. They've been burning up watching us all these years choking on endless national media love. Then when we joined their league under the national assumption that we would smash through it like a wet paper bag... the hammer was cocked. Fast-forward to our current collapse and they are reveling in the streets. It's almost like Trump fans after learning they'd beaten the media lock that was Crooked H. Our collapse has been the greatest thing (entertainment-wise) that has happened to this sorry league since UConn won the Natty. They get to feel - if only for a moment - that they are relevant and they tamed the Mighty Shockers. Everything that has ever happened negatively to them is being channeled through the Shocker crisis: Big12 snubs, program collapses, coaching bails, NCAA penalties... you name it.

"No way do these Podunk little Shockers come in here and **** on us too!" -says every jilted AAC fan since the beginning of time 03-hissyfit

Well AAC fans, it seems like you dodged a bullet! For now... 04-cheers

Seriously. I never once thought about WSU prior to this year. They were nothing more than a nice story a few years back. No doubt the rest of the conference feels likewise. Such a homer...

Right there with you. The season has worked out as expected. I knew there was no way WSU was going to destroy the AAC in year one. I'm not surprised they have 3 losses at this point.

Good addition to the conference? Yes. A dominant, "blueblood" type program? No.

WSU has serious recruiting issues. who the hell would want to go to Nowhere Kansas? The luster is now gone. And won’t easily easily return. That’s the realty WSU fans can’t accept. You had your day in the sun. As fleeting as it was. Just making the NCAAs will be the issue going forward. You had it made in the MVC. Now...those were the good old days.

Do we really need TWO THREADS to discuss what was pretty much obvious to all but a deluded portion of one fanbase
6 months ago?

oh...pardon me....a deluded portion and a couple of attention whores.

Riiiiiiight. While your "son" was calling you after every Redturd game crying on the phone about getting hammered by the Shox once again...

You are a complete fake poster. Probably an Illinois State fan pretending to be someone else. You really have no value here. You're not even funny.

No facts.

Not funny.

Blatant trolling.

Why still here?

The fact that he is facing bigger faster defenders? That he went from all conference player to 3rd team? The talent pool doesn't just go to offenses. The MVC doesn't have the players of size and athletic ability the AAC does. Who in the MVC has a probable 1st round pick guarding the rim? How many 6-6 3andD wings are there in the MVC for him to shoot over? How many guards who were smaller, less athletic, slower defenders did shamet or McDuffie break down and create an open shot for him or others? Now that they don't have a top 5 player in the league how much harder is it to do what they want to?

Who's the 1st round rim-protector in the AAC?





I know all you AAC'rs aren't that blind/dumb. We're just having fun arguing and killing time right?

Fall, Evans. UConn probably has one in there somewhere off past history. Obi Enechionyia is a shot blocker and probably 2nd round.

LOL! Actually, I really couldn’t have cared less. I was more interested in watching a much better conference race with Cincy and SMU. It just so happened I was in town to go see one game. ISU beat the crap out of WSU.
