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.

No. just now that the God-complex is gone we can now enjoy good quality basketball. did you not read the part that wsu makes the conference better and makes the teams stronger ? its in the same sentence. we both benefit from the addition.

It's nice to watch WSU fans realize this ain't the MVC.

Go hard or go home amirite?

The mighty AAC broke the back of the Shockers...

We simply couldn't handle the P0W6R!

I feel peace knowing that we'll send 7 teams to the Dance though. When you get your ass handed to you by a true POWER league, failure is much easier to swallow.

Wait a minute. Did I say seven? I meant one...

your introduction to the AAC is not yet complete...

Very glad they are here. Provided a big spark to the hoops in more ways than one. And no complaints at all.

I wish the family would grow even larger with VCU (passionate PASSIONATE fan base and sells out all games). I think ECU fans would be the most credible in their comments both in proximity and history (shared the CAA with them for five years or so).

Dayton is the other. I'll defer to UC fans, obviously.

if we add one VCU would be good, but I think they need a companion. I don't know much about their other sports, but it's a good school too. I think they have decent baseball.

Dayton - ABSOLUTELY NOT. If you think Wichita fans are delusional, you haven't been introduced to Dayton fans. They think their Dayton Flyers should be ranked somewhere between the Celtics and the Cavaliers! Dayton is essentially an outer suburb of Cincy anyway. They add nothing.

I think UC fans are split. As a native Daytonian I would love it, and I don't know any Dayton fans who are delusional like described above. In fact, I think if anything of us the UC fans thumbing their nose at a quality program 45 minutes away that gets under their skin. I deal with UD fans daily and, especially under Cronin, they completely respect UC's program. Huggins not so much.

Take Dayton in a second. We are starved for a nearby conference foe. There are absolutely zero road trips for basketball and maybe a 10 hour trip to Memphis for football. Dayton would be a welcome addition.

Then why no series scheduled?

I'm glad we added WSU. Great addition. The best available. Yeah, they have some dipsh!t fans, but we all do. Use the Ignore button.

The only puzzling thing to me is how hard it is for them to admit that the conference is tougher. They want to blame all the losses on them suddenly becoming much worse than they even were earlier this season. If they think they are their own worst enemy, wait until they lose 6 or 7 of their rotation players after this season.

Great addition. They are forcing everyone else to step up their game - on and off the court - including themselves.

I know some here don't care for them but let me ask you something - who else could we have added to get to 12 members that was better in a basketball sense ?

The only other program that I could see as a BB only member that could have brought something was FGCU. No other teams would be willing to leave the A10 or BE.

would love to see dayton in the american. some have surmised that uc and dayton don't hoop for the same reason as uc and osu use to not. losing to a lesser regional foe is ultra damaging to recruiting, perception. and etc....

Meh. I'll bet their fan base as a whole is great to watch a game with. They love their Shockers, are loyal followers, appreciate good competition, don't back down from a fight and prolly can put down a few cold ones to boot. They shouldn't be judged by a few of the internet keyboard warrior trolls that post here. As I stated in another thread, a few more losses will cause one or two of our resident WSU fans posting in their own private thread echo chamber:

WSU fans know the AAC is a much better and tougher conference which is why we are all excited to be here.

But WSU has not played well in two of the losses and I do not remember them playing as poorly as they did vs Houston and Temple in the last several years in the MVC. If they had, they would have lost those games too.

The WSU fans that post here have no ability to give credit to an opponent that beats them. It's never that their opponent is good, it's that WSU just played bad if they lose.

Some of you guys need to quit with the strawman arguments.

Houston and Temple are solid teams. As has been discussed on this board, Temple has had a weird season.

Is it not possible that the teams are good AND WSU plays poorly? Is anyone on this board really going to say that WSU played well vs Houston and Temple? Give me a break. There are good reasons WSU was favored by 6,7 points in each game.
