RE: Conference Affiliation
I think what you will see is that this conference is a "big city" league. It will even be better for the city of Wichita. When you play on the road you might see some famous pro basketball players attending, pro baseball players, ex- Presidents (GW BUSH), famous folks. Also there are the city facilities - bigger airports, better highways, motels, eateries, etc. than in the MVC. When you try to compare say Springfiled to Dallas or Peoria to Memphis, there just is none. Lots of places to go and see. And if you get the chance, attend a UCF or USF game in the dead of winter. Make a vacation out of it. No winter in Florida in January. And since you don't have FB, you can pick and choose who you root for. We have a lot of fun teams to watch. Offenses that produce big yardage and big plays.

Its a fun league, but a very competitive one. Have fun and win every chance you can get.

Oh, and just forget about the MVC. They will be fine, but they will just have to duck lower now since the ceiling they have is so small.

We're used to seeing those types of things at home games. Well, mostly former players but on occasion a couple of active NBA guys roll into town. No US Presidents, but we do have the CIA director.

I still refuse to pay attention to college football until Wichita has a team. Falls are for volleyball and Royals baseball.

Heh, and another Wichita congressman (Glickman) was the Chair of the House Intel Committee and the fed'l Ag Sec.

RE: Conference Affiliation
Tomorrow (appropriately on the 7th of the month) will be the big day for the vote as I understand it. Even ESPN was earlier running a ribbon on that. I think there is a 95% chance you folks are in, but always room for some last minute shenanigans. But I just don't think that would occur since everyone is for this.

So Good Luck and expect the best. And a prematurely "WELCOME TO THE AAC!!"
