Pick Dundee aka (@TheColbyD), Ryan McIntyre (@Moneyline_Mac) & Noah Bieneik (@NoahB77_) break down each and every team in the new look AAC Conference. Are Dusty May and the Florida Atlantic Owls a lock to run away with the AAC regular season and post season tournament championships? How was it that Florida Atlantic was able to bring back Alijah Martin, Johnell Davis, Vladislav Goldin, Brandon Weatherspoon, etc in this day and age of the transfer portal?

Will Andy Kennedy and the UAB Blazers be fine despite losing Jelly Walker? Did UAB win the transfer portal by getting Daniel Ortiz from North Alabama, James White from Ole Miss, Barry Dunning from Arkansas and Will Shaver from North Carolina? Will Mike Schwartz and the East Carolina Pirates be a contender in the AAC with the additions of Cam Hayes, Bobby Pettiford Jr. and hiring Mark Adams the former Texas Tech head head coach to an assistant position?
Is this the year that Ron Hunter and the Tulane Green Wave make a big time splash with the return of Jaylen Forbes and Kevin Cross and the addition of Kolby King from St. John’s and Gregg Glenn from Michigan? What should we expect from brand new North Texas head coach Ross Hodge after being a long time assistant for the Mean Green? Will year two for Rob Lanier at SMU be the year he turns a corner after bringing in Chuck Harris from Butler, Ja’Heim Hudson from Georgia State, Tyreek Smith from Oklahoma State, B.J. Edwards from Tennessee and Denver Anglin from Georgetown to go with Zhuric Phelps and Samuell Williamson as the Mustangs try to load up before heading to the ACC?
How will the new look Charlotte 49ers look after Ron Sanchez abruptly resigns to rejoin Tony Bennett and UVA as an assistant and how will brand new head coach Aaron Fearne do in his first season as head coach?
