  1. Week 4 AAC Coaches Poll This week saw a lot of movement in the polls with all but 4 teams changing spots. SMU keeps the top spot again this week while UCF and Navy trade places. Temple's win against conference opponent Cincinnati was not enough to impress the coaches and they ended up sharing the 4th place spot with Memphis. East Carolina was able to catch the eyes of voters and take the 6th spot, surpassing USF in 7th. Cincinnati stayed in 8th place while Tulane's 3-0 start moved them up 2 spots to take 9th place. Tulsa falls to 10th while Connecticut drops to 11th and Houston remained at the bottom. Upcoming Games Thursday Night UCF (2-1) at Houston (1-2) Friday Night Cincinnati (1-2) at Tulsa (1-2) Saturday Morning Tulane (3-0) at Connecticut (2-1) Penn State (2-1) vs. Temple (1-2) (MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ) Saturday Afternoon none Saturday Evening SMU (3-0) at East Carolina (2-1) Saturday Night none Bye Week USF (2-1) Memphis (2-1) Navy (1-2)
  2. Week 3 AAC Coahces Poll This weeks poll saw the top teams maintain the status quo, with Memphis and USF sharing the 5th spot. East Carolina and Cincinnati swapped spots this week after Cincinnati's loss to Temple and East Carolina's big win over New Mexico State. Connecticut's early wins this season help them stay at the top of the bottom of the pack while Tulane's 3-0 season can't get them up the ranks. This poll was released late so I won't go over the upcoming games (since they already happened)
  3. AAC Week 2 Coaches Poll The coaches poll for week 2 is in and the results have been tallied. SMU and Navy remain at the top of the poll, with SMU retaining it unanimous 1st place votes. UCF overtook Temple by a close margin after both teams suffered a loss last week. UCF played a close game, but Temple was handily beat. Memphis swapped spots with USF in another close margin after both teams beat their opponents last week, with USF getting a close victory and Memphis running away against a weaker opponent. Cincinnati was able to move up the board after their loss. East Carolina and Tulsa tied for 8th place this week as Tulsa dropped after their loss. Connecticut's second win of the season was enough to get them the 10th place spot and almost had them tied for 8th. Houston moved down after their bye and Tulane remained on the bottom despite their win. Upcoming Games Thursday Night UCF (1-1) at Nebraska (0-2) Northern Iowa (0-1) at Tulane (1-0) Friday Night New Mexico State (0-2) at East Carolina (0-1) Arkansas (1-1) vs Tulsa (0-2) at New Era Field, Buffalo, NY Saturday Morning Connecticut (2-0) at USF (1-0) Saturday Afternoon #19 SMU (1-0) at North Texas (0-1) Saturday Evening #6 Mississippi State (2-0) at Memphis (1-0) Saturday Night Houston (0-1) at California (1-0) Bye Week Cincinnati (1-1) Temple (0-2) Navy (1-1)
  4. Week 2 Update Thursday Night USF at Troy 0-0 Final Score W 31-21 USF managed to go into Troy and come out with the win this week. Though not a blowout, the Bulls had this game under control after a 14-0 first quarter. Week three will have USF hosting undefeated UConn on Saturday Morning for their first conference game. USF shouldn’t have any issue with the Huskies, but Connecticut has been playing very well so far this year. Friday Night Connecticut at UAB 1-0 Final Score W 31-24 Eastern Washington at Memphis 0-0 Final Score W 48-17 Louisiana Tech at Tulane 0-0 Final Score W 24-21 Friday night saw the AAC teams go 3-0 against OOC teams. Connecticut again found a way to win this week taking down UAB in what turned out to be a QB shootout. Memphis beat FCS opponent Eastern Washington, as was expected. Tulane opened their season with an exciting in-state game that ended with Tulane shutting down the Bulldog’s final drive on an interception. In Week 3, Connecticut travels to USF for their opening conference game, Memphis hosts Mississippi State, and Tulane hosts Northern Iowa. Saturday Morning Arizona at Cincinnati 1-0 Final Score L 24-35 After a close game through the first half and taking the lead in the 3rd quarter, Cincinnati just couldn’t contain the offense of Arizona who scored 21 points in the 4th compared to 3 points from the Bearcats. Cincinnati has a bye week to fix their issues on defense before taking on Temple in week 4. Saturday Afternoon Tulsa at Oklahoma State 0-1 Final Score L 10-42 Tulsa could not get anything done against Oklahoma State Saturday. Despite having over 200 yards passing, Tulsa only managed 22 yards on the ground and threw 2 interceptions against the Cowboy defense. Oklahoma State shut the game down quick by going up 21-3 in the 1st quarter and the game was never close afterwards. Tulsa takes on Arkansas Friday at New Era Field in Buffalo, NY for a neutral site game. Saturday Evening Temple at Pittsburgh 0-1 Final Score L 14-31 UCF at Miami 1-0 Final Score L 17-21 Navy at Rice 1-0 Final Score L 17-27 Saturday Evening saw the AAC go 0-3 against OOC opponents. Temple couldn’t get anything going on offense against Pittsburgh. This game’s outcome was never in question as the Panthers didn’t allow the Owls to score until the second half. UCF played a close game with Miami, but was ultimately not able to make the final touchdown needed to overcome the Hurricanes. Navy had a close contest with Rice but couldn’t keep up in the 2nd half, as the Owls outscored the Midshipmen 17-7 after half time. Temple will take a break with a bye week before taking on Cincinnati in week 4. UCF travels to Nebraska on Thursday night. Navy also gets a break this week with a bye before taking on SMU in week 4. Byes 0-1 1-0 0-1 East Carolina hopes to get their first win this week when New Mexico State comes to town. SMU makes the trip to North Texas on Saturday. Houston goes Saturday to take on California.
  5. Week 0/1 Coaches Poll After the completion of week 1 games, the coaches of the AAC submitted their polls for the conference rankings. 6 coaches responded this week with where they think the teams of the AAC stack up. SMU came away this week with a unanimous 1st place after their high scoring game. Temple, Tulsa, and East Carolina fell in the standings after their losses, while Tulane lost their 11th place spot to Connecticut without playing a game. The top of the table was pretty consistent with the coaches, while the middle was more erratic. Tulsa again received votes for many different ranks, with the coaches not quite sure of where they belong. Cincinnati and East Carolina came close to a tie with some of the coaches believing Cincinnati deserved the 8th place after their strong win against a weak opponent, while other felt East Caroline deserved it with their very close loss. Connecticut's win with week was enough for the coaches to give them the 11th place spot over Tulane. Upcoming Games Thursday Night USF (0-0) at Troy (0-1) Friday Night Connecticut (1-0) at UAB (0-1) Eastern Washington (1-0) at Memphis (0-0) Louisiana Tech (0-1) at Tulane (0-0) Saturday Morning Arizona (0-1) at Cincinnati (1-0) Saturday Afternoon Tulsa (0-1) at Oklahoma State (1-0) Saturday Evening Temple (0-1) at Pittsburgh (0-0) UCF (1-0) at Miami (FL) (0-1) Navy (1-0) at Rice (1-0) Byes East Carolina Houston SMU
  6. George Personopolis, Cincinnati Independent. What do you think are your team's keys to victory this week against the Bulldogs? And a second question: Tulane is felt to be at the lower end of the AAC. What are your thoughts on how you will do in conference play this year?
  7. Week 0 and Week 1 Update Here is a quick rundown of the Week 0 and Week 1 games around the AAC. Teams went a combined 5-4 against OOC opponents with no conference games starting until Week 3. Week 0 Thursday Night Temple at Mississippi State 0-0 Final Score L 24 - 41 Week 0 Saturday Afternoon Baylor At Houston 0-0 Final Score L 41-20 Week 0 was rough for the AAC as both teams this week were unable to come away a win. Temple will look to bounce back when they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Panthers in week 2. Houston has a second bye week to try and get everything ready for their week 3 matchup at California. Week 1 Thursday Night Cincinnati at Liberty 0-0 Final Score W 49-14 Georgia State at Connecticut 0-0 Final Score W 27-14 In contrast to Week 0, Week 1 had both AAC teams walk away with the win. Cincinnati did what was predicted and beat the Flames handily, whereas Conncticut’s interim coach surprised many naysayers with a win against Georgia State. Cincinnati looks to keep the streak going when they host Arizona. Connecticut will be looking for win #2 when they make the trip to play UAB. Week 1 Friday Night Wake Forest at UCF 0-0 Final Score W 45-10 UCF came into Week 1 and dominated Wake Forest’s line. Not much else to say as this game was never close. UCF goes to Miami to take on the Hurricanes in Week 2. Week 1Saturday Morning NC State at East Carolina 0-0 Final Score L 24-27 East Carolina played well in a QB showcase against NC State. Unfortunately, the Wolfpack walked away with the win after an overtime field goal. The Pirates look to make corrections on this bye week before hosting New Mexico State in Week 3. Air Force at Navy 0-0 Final Score W 23-20 Another game came down to a last minute field goal for the win on Saturday Morning. This time it say Navy take the closely contested win against fellow military academy Air Force. Week 2 sees Navy travel to Rice. Week 1 Saturday Afternoon Oklahoma at Tulsa 0-0 Final Score L 14-48 Saturday Afternoon started with Oklahoma coming into Tulsa, beat their little brother and leaving town again before anyone noticed. QB Charles Palmer tried his best to get something going, but it was all for not. Week 2 has Tulsa traveling to Oklahoma State to take on the Cowboys. Appalachian State at SMU 0-0 Final Score W 66-7 SMU came into Saturday afternoon’s game and played some great football. Multiple players had very good games and the Mustang fans had a wonderful hot Texas Saturday in the stands. Appalachian State’s football team was apparently there as well but reports can’t be validated at this time. SMU has a bye week in Week 2 and looks to travel to North Texas in Week 3 to take on the Mean Green. Byes Memphis starts their season in Week 2 against Eastern Michigan, USF travels to Troy for their 2023 opening game, and Tulane invites Louisiana Tech over for the first game of the Green Wave's season.
  8. I did mean Tulsa. I always mix Tulsa and Tulane up with typing for some reason. Same with UCF and USF. Really have to double check myself with those
  9. The 2023 season is finally here and with it comes the first conference coaches poll. The uncertainty of the new season really showed in the voting as many of the AAC coaches did not agree with one another on where the teams should be prior to kicking off the season. The team that sparked the most uncertainty in the coaches was Tulsa who ended up receiving votes for 8 different ranks over the 10 polls. On the other hand, Connecticut was the most agreed upon ranking between the coaches with 8 out of 10 placing the Huskies last in the conference. Only time will tell the accuracy of the coaches as the teams fight to prove that they belong at the top of the poll or that they were undervalued. Temple and SMU were in a very close race for 1st place, but in the end Temple got the edge from the coaches. Both teams will look to take their respective division and prove during the AAC championship who really deserves the #1 spot. But the other 8 teams may have something to say about that. Navy easily gained the 3rd place spot as most coaches feel they are one of the stronger teams in the conference, as was the same with UCF. Tulsa got the 5th place spot as the coaches are divided about how they will do this year. Some felt that Tulsa was a contender for the AAC title, while others felt they would struggle to even get out of the bottom of the conference table. USF and Memphis battled it out for 6th place, while East Carolina and Cincinnati fought for 8th. Most of the coaches see these two rankings as a toss up between the two teams with only a few outliers predicting something different. Houston had a few coaches feel that they would have a decent season, but not enough to get them out of the 10th place position. Tulane at 11th and Connecticut at 12th were pretty consistent votes with only a few coaches swapping their spots. table { width: 100%; border-spacing: 0; } table td { padding: 3px; } tr { background-color: #FFF;

  10. 7th and 8th year seniors are a thing, right?
  11. Amir Turner Jr is the biggest loss as far as I'm concerned. He was one of ECU's highest rated RB and even if they where going to go with their younger guy, Samuel Baldwin III, it is going to hurt losing Amir as a backup USF looks bad on paper, but they are good on O-line. None of these guys were ever going to see the field if they had stayed. Hopefully their new teams can utilize them. As for biggest gains, K Jared Caudill for Cincinnati is going to make a difference (mostly because he will be the ONLY FREAKING KICKER on the roster next year...)
  12. The 2023 season is here with the opening games happening in just a couple of days, and transfer students around the country have made their choices about where they plan to finish their college careers. 13 players said goodbye to their AAC home this off season and 7 players have been welcomed into the conference. Here is a quick breakdown of player movement in the AAC: A total of 13 players left, 5 Seniors, 7 Juniors, and 1 Sophomore 8 players transferred in, 1 Senior, 5 Juniors, and 2 Sophomores 7 teams had players leave, while 6 teams received transfers SMU, ECU, and Tulsa were the only AAC teams to lose players and receive a transfer East Carolina’s RB Amir Turner and Navy’s QB Isaiah Best (both rated 4.0/4.0) were the most talented players to leave the conference. SMU’s P Jude Foles, ECU's RB Bradley Holmes, and Tulsa’s DT Troy Cason and QB Phillip Duvall (all rated 3.5/3.5) where the highest rated players transferring in In Cincinnati Bearcats Penn State Nittany Lions DE Kameron Valentine 6-4 270 Jr Lamar (Lamar SC) 2.5 of 3.0 [Blitz] Pittsburgh Panthers K Jared Caudill 6-0 163 (So) Minor (Adamsville AL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Accuracy] Connecticut Huskies Florida State Seminoles WR DeAndre Graves 6-0 221 Jr Inlet Grove (Riviera Beach FL) 2.5 of 3.0 [Target] East Carolina Pirates LSU Tigers RB Bradley Holmes 5-11 207 (So) Mineral Wells (Mineral Wells TX) 3.0 of 3.5 [Power] Memphis Tigers Tennessee Volunteers DE Israel Barrow 6-2 253 Sr Durant (Durant MS) 3.0 of 3.0 [Contain] SMU Mustangs Charlotte 49ers P Jude Foles 6-2 188 (Jr) Riverside (Durham NC) 3.5 of 3.5 [Power] Tulsa Golden Hurricanes Oklahoma Sooners DT Troy Cason 6-3 271 (Jr) Vian (Vian OK) 3.5 of 3.5 [1-Gap] Virginia Cavaliers QB Phillip Duvall 6-4 216 (Jr) Marshall (Milwaukee WI) 3.5 of 3.5 [Pocket] Out East Carolina Pirates Missouri Tigers RB Amir Turner Jr. 5-8 195 Sr Louisburg College (Louisburg NC) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] Navy Midshipmen South Dakota State Jackrabbits QB Isaiah Best 6-4 199 (Sr) Port St. Lucie (Lucie, FL) 4.0 of 4.0 [Scrambling] SMU Mustangs Florida International Panthers CB Marlon Ceballos 5-11 169 Sr Sinton (Sinton TX) 3.5 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] Temple Owls Oregon State Beavers WR Ryan Bowers 6-0 160 (Jr) Shade (Cairnbrook PA) 3.0 of 3.5 [Speed] Tulsa Golden Hurricanes Kansas State Wildcats FS Andrew Hobson 6-1 207 (Jr) Afton (Afton OK) 3.5 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] UCF Knights Buffalo Bulls OG Zack Cornelius 6-2 325 (Jr) Barron Collier (Naples FL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] Harvard Crimson TE Makai Childs 6-0 221 (Jr) Brevard Christian ( Fl) 3.5 of 3.5 [Blocking] UTSA Roadrunners FB Aidan D'Angelo 5-9 236 Sr St. Thomas Aquinas ( FL) 3.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] USF Bulls Charlotte 49ers RB Stephen Dawkins 5-11 175 (Jr) Jupiter (Jupiter FL) 3.0 of 3.5 [Speed] Georgia Bulldogs TE Kareem Giles 6-2 202 (So) Port St. Lucie (Port St. Lucie FL) 3.0 of 3.5 [Receiving] San Diego State Aztecs OT Martin Maguire 6-6 305 Jr Cook (Adel GA) 2.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] UTSA Roadrunners OT Elias Conn 6-1 299 (Jr) South Heart (South Heart ND) 3.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] Eastern Michigan Eagles OG Dante Oneil 6-5 294 Sr Chipley (Chipley FL) 3.0 of 3.0 [Run Blocking]
