Maybe 2018 will be different. They're up to 20 games against the big boys. Here are some upset opportunities:

UCF @ N. Carolina
UCF vs Pitt
Uconn @ Syracuse
USF @ Illinois
Houston vs Arizona
Houston @ Texas Tech
Memphis @ Missouri
Tulsa @ Arkansas

We'll see.

You never answered my question. Why are you so hung up on the AAC that you down grade them at every opportunity?

B/c the AAC is a real solid Power league

Ask again in a year or two, it could be another answer. But he hated small town Tuscaloosa, and he really likes Boca Raton (and of course nearby Miami) and coaching with his dad and other family members. I think he is kind of recovering from the Nick Saban pressure cooker, and enjoying life in a bit less glare and post divorce.

Right now he has the team he likes, enough money, and for the first time some love and stability he craves. I don't think it's a forever thing, but maybe three years in Boca making a measly $1M a year but being happy will rejuvenate him for another run at the big time. But for now G5 has to deal with a Chris Petersen level coach in a program that could lock everyone else out of the G5 NY6 for couple years.

No one would hire him.

A couple more 10-11 win seasons and everybody will be knocking on his door

I don't get the AAC hate for the ACC. ACC teams appear to have been the one P5 willing to play H/H with the AAC. I do get ECU, UCF & USF but the rest makes not sense.

Granted I get why home state teams would not want to play other AAC home state teams due to recruiting. Why I think you will see UNC and NCSU not renew ECU and Duke and Wake may not be willing as they were once before due to App State and Charlotte. Miami and FSU not wanting to play USF and UCF. I have no idea about Pitt and Temple if they are interested in playing each other. Much of the same logic SEC rarely play home and home instate G5s.

ACC Teams Playing H/H
