Our wiki is pretty terribly outdated, but at least you included someone I know.

Thanks for the input. I tried to keep those as brief as possible. If its too long, people just ignore it. The reason I included a few more Tulsa alums was to educate anyone who wished to stop by about us. I was actually thinking about doing this on the conference site to introduce ourselves, but decided against it. They are a little more critical of each post and I didn't think that was the appropriate thing to do in this instance.

RE: The AAC At A Glance
Our new conference brother - Navy is officially a member of the AAC. The list of famous alumni is much too long to include so I'll leave that out.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...al_Academy


In football, Navy has a tradition thats hard to match.
1. 2 Heisman winners - Joe Bellino (60') - Roger Staubach (63')
2. 20 CFB HOF players
3. 3 CFB HOF coaches
4. 20 Bowls including the Rose, Orange, Cotton and Sugar
5. One national championship

They also have played Notre Dame every year since 1927.
