curious what our out of conference foes are. AJ Lawson needs to know who he will be playing against.

Conference still considers us a doormat as Houston, UCF and Cincy seem to be experts picks as top 3 in the league. Bulletin board material.

We did finish in the bottom four... but this pretty much shows that we should expect to be picked to finish in the bottom 4 again. I have to wonder whether Frazier's decision to leave had any effect on this (probably not, but... maybe?). Note that Wichita State, very close to being the top predicted team last year, graduated a ton and is not in the predicted top 4.

I looked and noticed last year that the league coaches' preseason predictions flipped UConn and SMU from the scheduler's predictions - we didn't play UConn twice, but the coaches picked SMU 4th and UConn 5th. Everyone kinda missed those predictions, eh? SMU finished in the bottom 4, UConn barely above them.



It should be explained here for those who may have forgotten (or never knew), the AAC now predicts the top 4 and bottom 4 and makes sure they don't match them up twice so as to avoid the RPI "drag" it would cause on the top 4 - a ploy to try to better the national impression of the AAC and possibly have more at-large bids.

Makes it easier for us since we only have to "upset" the top teams once each on our way to sweeping the conference.

It's like Wisconsin's Big10 football schedule
