No word on DukesDan wetting himself (though it's a near lock).

Any questions?

Would it have killed Chris May to make a call to Lebanon, Illinois?

Someone on our board posted that his son told him that on ESPN last night there was a brief mention of the A10 having a discussion to drop 4 programs. Nobody Ono our board could confirm it. Not saying that is what they'll discuss, but it would not shock me.

Re: A10 Presidents call meeting

Why are the A10 presidents calling a meeting? Its utterly POINTLESS. Programs are leaving for the Big East when invited, its not complex.

Everyone will act in their self interest. Period

The point is to change the equation to the point where the programs self-interest is to not go to this newly formed also-ran conference.

Let's drop Xavier, SLU, Butler and Dayton. Also your autocorrect to "Ono" is pretty hilariously Freudian.

Pretty much your posting strategy, no?

Well, good luck and all.

Side note: Butler's president is from Villanova.

Re: A10 Presidents call meeting

Dropping teams could save the A10. If you get rid of the bottom teams in the conference then joining the A10 may actually be an attractive option for the BE7, but only if they can't retain the rights to the Big East name. How many schools would need to be dropped for this to be a possibility?

Absolutely. Should Xavier and other get poached then the bopttom should be purged and new blood added.

Re: A10 Presidents call meeting

Interesting strategy. Some have said it may take 1-2 years for the schools to officially separate so this could convince them to join in instead of recreate a conference. Even if the A-10 does get poached it will reduce the league and make it more attractive to teams like Creighton etc. Still dropping 4 schools is a pretty big step.
