Congrats. And they gave the SLC a nice parting gift. An extra NCAA share for 6 years.

Who cares? They will be in about three months. A feather in the cap for the WAC IMO.

You're right. You have no idea just how much of a whiney-baby some of these nmsu fans are. 03-hissyfit

That was a fun game to watch. And reading the meltdown on the Longhorn message board afterwards was nearly as much fun.

I just have to disagree Todor. If I were in a conference that was bringing in a member that just won an NCAA game I would be very glad.The stronger your league- the better seed you get increasing your chance of tourney wins--- and yes- money.

Any day any team beats the Longhorns it’s a day to celebrate. Any day an underdog wins and it’s against the Longhorns, it’s a day to celebrate. It makes it that much sweeter knowing it’s a team that will be part of the WAC soon. Congrats ACU! Hope to see them get to the sweet sixteen.

Even before this win, I think the WAC will be much improved next year. I hope to see more fans in the arenas, more games played, and see what kind of power numbers the WAC has.

With the prospect of lessened restrictions on fan attendance as COVID begins to get under control, it would be surprising of there were not more fans in the stands.

And yes, top to bottom, the WAC should be stronger in Basketball with the additions. That is one of the reasons it is so exciting to see the additions.

I’m excited for the new additions. Good athletic universities were added with a lot of potential for continued growth.

RE: ACU clips the longhorns!!
From the Article below...

"With that style of play, it’s hard not to compare ACU to its purple-clad Southland (and soon to be, WAC) brethren in Stephen F. Austin. But to put the Wildcats’ climb in more perspective, they were four seasons away from jumping to Division I when the Jacks made their first NCAA Tournament breakthrough in 2009."

"Will that type of scrambling effort be something the college basketball populace becomes used to in March?"

"It seems entirely likely with ACU riding a wave of momentum the past three seasons. They’ve gone a combined 42-11 in league play, made two NCAA Tournament appearances, carved a distinct identity and parlayed it into a move to the WAC next season. This will up the ante, creating the drool-worthy prospect of WAC powerhouse New Mexico State, reigning league tournament champion Grand Canyon and a Southland trio of ACU, SFA and Sam Houston State creating a quality mid-major league."

Abilene Christian has officially arrived on the national scene

The Wildcats “ distinct identity” is based on a unique tenacious defense. This blog sites offers a deep dive into what our defense looks like and the kinds of things we will need to do against UCLA later today.
