re: 2012/13 Rankings, Including Bracketology

It's all going to be dependent on scheduling...If current trends hold true, UMass and St. Joes (two preseason favorites) will have to play @ SLU. I'm not saying my Billikens are (or will be) the better team, but it IS fairly hard to win on the road, especially at Chaifetz. Other similar scheduling quirks could end up deciding the conference...

Yup. People ignore this all the time, but the unbalanced schedule has a huge effect on the standings. With 1, possibly 2, new teams to the schedule, all scheduling bets are other than the obvious X/UD, Temple/St Joe and other rivalries are off. H/H will change, as could the expected location of single games.

re: 2012/13 Rankings, Including Bracketology

Umass might have to give up their pre-ordained Nat'l Championship and worry about getting thru this monster A-10 schedule. Holy sheeeeeeet. This is going to be one helluva League this year. Battles Royale !!!! .600 might be heck of a mark.

I thought "National Championship" was code for "Consecutive winning seasons"

Is it not?

re: 2012/13 Rankings, Including Bracketology

I'm guessing with 16 teams next year, it will be one game vs every opponent and two games vs one opponent.

re: 2012/13 Rankings, Including Bracketology

I don't think Butler will finish in the top 6. I liked them coming in rolling in 2013, but this year is one year too early. VCU has an easier transition with more upper class talent and they're coming from a tough league. Butler is still rebuilding and going from Freshman level to the Varsity.

Right now, I lean:

1. VCU
2. Temple
3. St Joe
4. SLU
5. Dayton
6. Xavier
7. Butler
8. Richmond

this conference is really amazingly stacked. i think the top 8 on my list will all contend for at large bids. something like 6 bids isn't out of the question.

re: 2012/13 Rankings, Including Bracketology

We're returning all but the weakest member of our starting lineup, plus bringing back a couple of players who were injured last year? (seriously, Sampson was the wrong Carter to be injured)

The team improved throughout the year, and all the important pieces will be back. Keeping them out of your top 4, that's fine, but out of the top 8? Might be a bit of a stretch with the talent currently on the roster.

Ok, I know Twister and I have made some high claims for UMass, which will be right by the way, but you need not let your new found hatred get in the way of the facts. This is a problem with the human mind, and it shows in other areas such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Like e-parade said, putting us out of the top 4 is questionable, but out of the top 8 is downright appalling. If this your actual view, which I don't believe it really is, then you need to get some mental help. Actually who am I kidding, you are a deluded Flyers fan. You probably do believe this junk you're spewing...
