Can anyone tell me why the hell AAU, or academics at all matter to an athletic conference? I keep seeing things like Boise can not go to the PAC because of their academics, or this school is not a research school, or that school is not AAU. Why should that matter as to weather teams are a good fit athletically or geographically? I did read up on what AAU is. That is not my question. Why does it matter is my question.
Come guys, educate me!
