RE: What If - Baseball?
Since its baseball season, let me do the unthinkable and "bump" the baseball thread from a year ago in case anyone wants to discuss it.

OK so we dropped mens golf - 5 scholarships. Just pick up womens bowling to equal out the schollies and then add baseball with 11 scholarships. Problem solved. Batter up!

RE: What If - Baseball?
Congratulations to the three AAC baseball teams who were invited to the NCAA tournament (regionals) - UCONN, Tulane, and ECU. Also the Big12 got three in. Navy also was invited as the Patriot League Champs. So that is 4 teams IN with AAC connections. The big disappointment was Houston who was the preseason favorite, but played inconsistent come crunch time. If they had won the tournament, they would be in and probably UCONN as well to give the AAC 4 teams IN. Also, ORU got in by winning their league as well as our old neighbor Rice. So the city of Houston got at least one team IN.

As stated before, I think the AAC should look at inviting WSU into the league to get a 4th baseball team into the western side. It helps balance the league since there are 5 on the eastern side. Helping balance the conference in all sports is crucial to keeping the league together long term imo.

But of course at some future point, TU might look at adding baseball again as well. I emphasize the word "might". If TU could make money by playing in the revitalized downtown, that is the key.

Feel free to reread this long "what if baseball " thread since nothing has really changed other than the conference appears stronger and the baseball TV contract is now established. We have a bunch of natural rivals that would jump at the chance of playing baseball here (downtown) and help sell out the place. That means money and stability.

IMO

The AAC went 2-1 today in the first round of the NCAA baseball regionals. UCONN beat Ga Tech and ECU beat Bryant, but Tulane lost to Boston College. And our "connected" companion (in FB) Navy (who plays baseball in the Patriot League) lost to North Carolina St. Good luck to all our AAC teams in post season. Its double elimination so Tulane is still alive but can't lose again.

As of this morning, ECU was still alive by beating Virginia, Tulane was still in by beating Ole Miss and Navy beat St Mary's. UCONN will play Ga Tech in an elimination game after being beaten by Florida. Good luck to all those teams!

ECU beat Texas Tech last night in Lubbock 8-6 so they will be playing today for an NCAA CWS berth in Omaha. Game is 2pm and is set for ESPNU. Good luck to the Pirates and we will hopefully see them in Omaha. All they need is one win out of two games left in Lubbock to get a CWS berth.

Texas Tech beat ECU today 3-1 so they will play the deciding game tomorrow. Winner goes to the CWS in Omaha. ECU had several chances to break the game wide open, but just couldn't make the plays down the stretch. Good luck tomorrow to the Pirates. Game time should be 2pm again and on ESPNU.

Texas Tech eliminated the Pirates in the super regional in Lubbock yesterday, so no CWS this year for the AAC. But ECU still had a successful year beating the defending national champion Virginia Cavaliers in the regional.

Good luck next year to all the baseball teams in the AAC!

Congratulations to Coastal Carolina, the 2016 CWS and National Champions by defeating Arizona in Omaha. There is a lesson in this - that in the sport of baseball, there is a level playing field. The AAC can excell in this sport!
