Re: What Have You Done For The A10 Lately?

Dayton is unquestionably a big positive to A10 teams on the bubble - Dayton's wins help keep that bubble team's chances up. Conversely, Fordham is almost always bad for A10 teams on the bubble.
It also doubly rewards teams because of their wins in the postseason...the Bonnies were a 17 win team before the A-10 tourney this year, and I'm sure a couple of Dayton's 20+ win seasons were augmented by the conference and NIT tournaments. Not that I'm begrudging this...I go to games to see a win.
