AAC Facilities News 🏟️

I mean I might be delusional but I think we have just as good of a shot at getting into the big 12 as usf. maybe even better considering the big 12 doesn’t even have a school in nc in the conference yet. and at the very least while its small we actually have an on campus stadium. which is more than what usf can say at the moment.

The only school I give a clear leg up on us is Memphis. The rest? I know SMU might be in drivers seat but Meh. We just have to go perform now.

The NC market is desirable to the Big12 and even the SEC.

Our job now is to go prove we can deliver it. And that isn’t gonna happen unless we start winning a lot. A whole lot. And for a good long while.
Transformational type winning.

If we start winning like UCF we are off to the races, just gotta win.

Would love to take off like UCF! That would be fun.

Someones going to do it, might as well be us!

Winning solves everything.

In the case of the SEC we’d quadruple our fanbase overnight from our own alumni base with the announcement. Not sure the Big 12 would be close to that. Either way there’d be a boost and a long term gain but keeping most of that “boast gain” again would be down to on field performance.

USFs campus stadium move has become a priority because they know, unlike the AAC, playing in the local NFL stadium is not acceptable to the P5 conferences. Pitt is an exception, not a rule.

FWIW, Hogan - aka Terry Eugene Bollea - only attended USF and dropped out when he thought playing bass guitar was his calling. Not even listed among alumni on Wiki.

On the other hand, this guy - born in NC - did get his diploma in Tampa:

Seems to me he should be concerned with FAU, not FIU

I toured the “yard” at the naval academy this weekend. It’s an honor to be associated with this program and play regular football games vs the Midshipmen. I can’t wait to go back up there for a Niners game someday.

During today’s meeting, Stroman noted the current target is a seating capacity of approximately 35,000.

And they say they shouldn’t be comparing themselves to us. Ha ha ha
