'A10 Suck Factor' Games


This should be a fun thread during the Atlantic 10's 2012-13 non-conference schedule.

In order to qualify for recognition on this thread of shame, an Atlantic 10 team must lose a game to a non-conference team it was favored to beat during the 2012-13 regular seaon.

On Friday November 9th, no favored A10 teams lost.

GW lost to Youngstown state for that reason. The Colonials did not generate a lot of easy shot opportunities and when they did, they often missed. Seniors Kromah, Byrnes and Smith were a combined 6-23 and GW shot 27% on treys.

The defense was a problem in the first half, too. Colonials tightened up in the second half but the damage was done. They played catchup the whole way.

I thought Youngstown State was well coached and they played a good game.

Good news for GW is that the team has some talented youngsters who will get better rapidly as the year progresses. Frosh PG Joe McDonald was shaky to start and had five TOs, but he has a college-ready body and looks like a player. He settled down in the second half.

Small forward Patricio Garino was the second leading scorer and top rebounder for the game. He looked like GW's best all round player.

Still, if GW doesnt get more from its seniors it will be a long season.

Re: 'A10 Suck Factor' Games

This should be an interesting thread. I don't know if it's a good or bad thing that I was checking A-10 scores the other day just to know whether or not I'd need to prepare myself for any shenanigans 'round these parts.

Oh, Bona84... You're like those people who post/tweet apolitical posts on election night complaining about all the political posts.

I'm with 84 on this issue. Ignore Muddy at all costs. Even a milli-cent is to much to "spend" on the "Mudster"!

I just want the team I support to be in a stronger conference. I'd prefer it to be a stronger A-10! To me that would mean every member would have at least 2 trips to the NCAA Tourney and 5 winning seasons during each 10-year cycle. It would also be great for every program to seriously challenge for a league title (either regular season or Tourney) at least once during that same period of time.

When you open with findlay, walsh, Arkansas State and colorado, you shouldn't be talking about suck factors.

Really? Complaining about UD's exhibition foes? And Colorado? Colorado is actually a pretty good team. That's some off-brand trolling.

"A10 Suck Factor" games was actually coined by WH in his Dayton Nonconference Forecast, to mean he was picking at least one loss for UD that shouldn't have been a loss because A10 teams just tend to have one every year.

Re: 'A10 Suck Factor' Games

just for clarification, the "A-10 suck factor" was coined long before the Dayton nonconference forecast, WH has been talking about it for years.

Other than that, ignore is a lovely feature.

Colorado made the NCAA last year and if UD manages to win that it could be a ranked opponent in Baylor. But let's talk some more about 3rd ranked Findlay.

Re: 'A10 Suck Factor' Games

I didnt coin the phrase A-10 suck factor. I am not that clever.

But the phrase caught on, 5-6 years ago, during a down period when it seemed like the league was losing more than its normal share of games we considered gimmes. Truthfully, it's an affliction for all leagues, not just the A-10.

Re: 'A10 Suck Factor' Games

You could call them "Lutz factor" games, seems to be a great fit.
