for some reason I feel like the AAC should have taken UMass instead of Tulsa.
At least UMass would be a nice basketball rivalry for UConn. Plus it's a big state school versus a tiny arse private school so they would maybe have the chance to build up a legit football fan base instead of being maxed out like Tulsa due to a lack of alumni.
