I know we are all excited about joining the ACC. The conference will be a powerhouse in basketball, and a good spot for us in football as well. This morning I was looking at the baseball rankings and I am amazed at the number of ACC teams in the Top 25. NC, NC St, Va, Fl St, Clemson, & Va Tech. Adding in the soon to be ACC squads from Pitt and U of L, and it looks very tough.
This will be very exciting for all of the sports teams. Soccer will be another sport where we will be upgrading our competition immediately. This is all so amazing. I went to U of L while we were playing North Texas State, Drake, and Tulsa. I cannot imagine being a student in a few years. The level of team sports will be palpable on campus.
I am still watching videos from the basketball season, and am looking forward to football this Fall, but I cannot help but look ahead to what is in store for us in another 16 months. We may have to step up our play in a few sports, but it looks like we will be very competitive in all sports, in a very strong conference.
