AFA would be a great addition Archived Message

Maybe I'm looking too much into it but the Commish did not mention "faith-based" yesterday. Which I'm glad because it's not necessary. A quality private school or academy would fit quite nicely. Air Force would be a solid addition and they have no aspirations to look elsewhere like BYU football. |
Commish speaks of BYU without referring to "faith-based". Now uses description "philosophy of undergraduate education". Hello AFA?
"It's great to add a school like BYU to the mix with an incredible track record, a great national—international brand, actually—... and one that fits with the philosophy of our schools in how they think about undergraduate education and how they think about athletics on their campuses," Zaninovich said. "It's a lot bigger school, but how they think about athletics is really similar. So, it's a slam dunk that we were able to get both things—a good fit and a great basketball program."
