In the same conversation with The Mitch Davis Show, Commissioner Aresco touched on losing Cincinnati, UCF, and Houston to the Big 12. In hindsight, losing those three programs is a loss for the AAC, but again, Aresco did the best he could to bring in six programs with bright futures that would only grow under the AAC footprint. Nobody prepares anybody to continue the growth and ever-changing footprint of College Athletics. Yet, even in a victim state, Aresco kept pushing forward, building for the future of the conference.
