Since Syd made her decision to attend the University of Louisville, we have become Cardinal fans (although I still maintain my allegiance to the Hoosiers). She is excited about playing at U of L and it’s hard to believe she will start college in just over a year.
Louisville, along with nine other schools, will be a part of the American Athletic Conference. This will be a one-year deal for Louisville as they will move to the ACC in the 2014-2015 season. The American will be a 10-team league in 2013 with Big East holdovers Louisville, Rutgers, UConn, South Florida, Cincinnati and Temple along with newcomers from Conference USA in Houston, SMU, Central Florida and Memphis. In 2014, East Carolina, Tulane and Tulsa will be added as Louisville heads to the ACC and Rutgers departs to the Big Ten.
I saw on social media the look for the logo of the new league. They chose just a single letter because the league simply wants to be known as The American. Looking forward to how Louisville fairs in this new league and then in the ACC.
