No problem. I'll miss you guys a lot more. I don't even want to know if a Big East board exists.

Re: 11/16 A-10 Games

Some nice opportunities for the A-10 to get some wins that will get some national buzz tomorrow. Good luck to Dayton, UMass, and St. Joe's.

For just basketball, yeah, but it's terrible. CSNbbs is probably the best for BE boards.

Re: 11/16 A-10 Games

The problem for SJU is that their point guard, Tay Jones, is suspended for 3 games. I can't imagine that they have the horsepower to play a high level game without him.

Re: 11/16 A-10 Games

NC State is a 7.5 favorite over UMass. Seems a bit low; I expect the line to go up by game time.

Owlfan, you're welcome to come back next season and continue to do this valuable service.

I'll look forward to seeing how Providence finishes in the Big Least. They showed some talent and guts last night.

Re: 11/16 A-10 Games

Yes, I don't expect that team to finish last. They did make a lot of lucky shots in the first half to stay in the game, but looked very good in the second half. Sometimes I think having just 6 guys is a positive. Guys get in the flow and play loose. Helps to be in shape, too.

Until further notice, Depawful remains the BE bottom feeder. You can thank Jerry Wainwright for these last 8 years, Chicago fans. #strokeofluckforRichmond

We'll see, either way I am sure I will still be on here a lot and still be watching A-10 basketball a lot.

Re: 11/16 A-10 Games

I am interested to see the bigs match up in the Dayton/Boston College game. I think one thing was made clear by Colorado, Dayton's big men have to be more physical.
