RE: What If - Baseball?
Watching the Indiana St v Dallas Baptist game today and something popped into my head that "The AAC needs another baseball program". There is one that is pretty good who presently plays that sport in the MVC and is a nice geographic fit with a pretty good recent history of post season --Dallas Baptist. With the addition of WSU in the league, we are a little more balanced in that sport with Houston, Tulane, Memphis and now WSU. But the east has 5 teams in UCONN, Cincy, ECU, UCF and USF.

IMO we should balance as much as possible the AAC on both sides since it helps the travel situation. If you look at a map of baseball teams, the AAC needs to fill the absence-gap in the Dallas area with an associate baseball program. DBU has a very nice baseball facility on their campus and like I said is really cranking up their entire BB program. Maybe we should consider raiding the MVC just one more time.

Didn't know where to put this, but congratulations to the TU womens softball team who beat ECU there and has now won the AAC regular season title which gives them the top seed in the upcoming AAC tournament. They have once again been a dominant team in the conference. Good job girls!

BTW AAC softball will get an additional RPI bump next year when WSU starts playing in the conference. WSU may be the main competition for our girls next year in softball.

TU wins its 37th game by defeating UCF yesterday 3-0. Two more games Saturday and Sunday with UCF. If we reach 40 wins which we should at the AAC tournament, I think we end up in the top 20 with a good NCAA seed. But we need to get seeded away from Norman. Unfortunately, I doubt that happens.

RE: What If - Baseball?
Well since this is the "slow season" before we start playing FB, I think I will bring up something just for "thought" and possible "discussion".

We are evidently playing K-State in Wichita at the Intrust Bank Arena city owned facility next year - a neutral site. Good or bad it might start a trend of more neutral site games in the future. Thats fine, and something I am in favor of if feasable. So how about morphing this concept into another sport, something that may not necessarily be a TU thing, but an AAC thing.

Ready? Here it is. An OSU/OU v WSU baseball game at OneOk Field.

OU and OSU play a game or two there every year already and with our new conference brother close by, there might be enough interest to start an annual baseball game as a B12 vs AAC event here. It would, imo, spark a lot of interest. Now since we (TU) don't have baseball, we could support whichever team we feel closest to. I would probably go with WSU, but many others would probably wear Orange or Red.

So a neutral site contest featuring a B12 v AAC game might become a neat yearly event here - maybe. IMO its worth a try.

BTW - Let TU be the host of the game and allow for a cut in the proceeds.

Discuss.

Congratulations to the Houston Cougar baseball team for winning the AAC championship with a 6-0 win over ECU. Now hopefully USF and UCF can also get to a regional as at large selections. The league really needs multiple teams with a chance to make the CWS in Omaha. The AAC is the 4th best conference in the country according to its rpi numbers. I was actually hoping ECU would win since their chance of playing in a regional was not very good, but the best team obviously won.

NCAA regionals - 3 AAC teams selected andf the final rpi showed the AAC as the #4 highest RPI in all of College Baseball

UCF in Tallahassee Fl

USF in Gainesville Fl

Houston will host

Congratulations to those three programs for making the NCAA tournament and good luck on your way to the CWS.

UCF lost their first contest in a regional, so did host Houston to Iowa, but USF beat the devil out of Bethune. Hopefully, we can get a team or two into the CWS later on. We need to develope that habit.

On a slightly different note, I also want to see the AAC get several teams into the Womens Softball World Series, but the first order of business is to improve the strength of the league with teams considered strong other than TU for at large selections. Teams like the Florida schools, Houston and now WSU are strong programs that, with a little improvement, should meet that goal.
