Do we think the AAC is requiring Wichita State to play FBS football as a condition for AAC membership ?
I'm not clear on whether that is a key component of these supposed discussions, or not....
I hope they do not require football from Wichita State. They fill a void left by Navy in the other two major sports (Not really sure college baseball is a major sport). And lets be honest, it is very difficult to field a quality football program without much in state talent. Is there really enough talent in the state of Kansas to field a third BCS program? Right now there doesn't seem to be enough for two.
If you add Wichita State, that gets us to 12 in hoops and 9 in baseball. I didn't realize we only had 8 teams in the conference for baseball. Temple, Navy, SMU and Tulsa don't play baseball? I knew Navy didn't have a squad, or at least not in the AAC. I didn't realize the others didn't either.
Adding Wichita State adds quality to the baseball and the hoops.
