The AAC, American Athletic Conference, was once known as the Big East but when 94% of the conference decided to roll out, they had to change things up and it started with the name.
We aren’t big fans of the AAC title but it does roll off the tongue better than Big East. When it came to basketball, the Big East was a monster. But for every other sport, not so much. It is time things changed anyways. Maybe the next name change can be sponsored by Taco Bell or KFC.
Regardless of all the changing, the conference is and was the Big East first. That is where the majority of our alumni hail from so do not take off just yet. At least take a moment to enjoy the views.
