Many are like jazzed up teenage Xavier fans without the subtle nuances.

Good, loyal fans of a relevant, well run basketball program. They have every reason to be proud of their program and confident in what they can accomplish. They probably did not fully appreciate the step up in competition they were making and that even though they were likely a top 2 team in the league this year, that didn't mean they were going to run through it. Other good teams are going to get you on off nights. Happy to have them in the league and no issue with their fans even when they get a little silly.

Right there with you.

Next year it'll be better when they're below us in the standing like it normally is. Then they'll be calling us annoying. Ahhhh, life is so much better when you can gloat and Lord it over some poor shocker fan.

The Shocker fans are alright and groovy. The only thing that bothers me is that they always have a piece of straw in their mouth while talking. Some times you get jabbed by it in tight crowds.

I'm cool with the shocktop fans. They are pretty quiet during football season, and after this season, they have no reason to be so boisterous about "owning this conference" going forward. But I do hope they stick around for baseball season.

So, welcome to the American. 04-cheers

I'm on board with the general assessment here. Passion is good, despite a few wingnuts. I'm sure glad UC doesn't have any annoying fans.....

They were great in person and helped bring a good environment to a UH basketball game.

Also, the posters on here (for the most part) have proven to be better than their actual team.

Great addition to the conference and the obnoxious posters have become more tolerable now that their team have been depantsed and have had their lunch money taken from them. overall great basketball and makes our teams stronger and better down the road.

I suspect you are not alone in your sentiments. Much of AAC Nation was hoping that we would fall on our faces (including the AAC coaches who voted in direct opposition to the rest of the country).

Shocker fans might be getting the last laugh though as the preseason 2nd place prediction may end up woefully incorrect... 04-cheers

So the Shockers start to suck, the AAC then sucks, and AAC fans are happy? 04-cheers

This conference is weird.
