Aresco extension is well merited. Glad AAC is fighting to keep him.

Commissioners matter. Just think of CUSA w/Slive and then his successor and what a difference Slive made to SEC.

Nice to be in a conference finally where we all tend to really like our Commissioner and have faith in him

I think the Big 12's decision to stand pat was a hard wake up call to a number of AAC schools that what Aresco has been preaching, namely that we should stick together work hard and prosper together, is the best way to go forward. He's been a really terrific Commish I like him.

I approve! He's been proactive in doing things within, and outside of, the conference to make it better as a whole.
