The guys at metsblog do a good job with good info.

SLU won me over in AC last year. Their cheerleaders are surprisingly top notch, the Billiken is ridiculously awesome and their band plays songs that sound like songs you should drink beer to.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

I like Fordham because the folks on this board give them so much crap and Fordham's fans manage to stay above the fray, with class.

A Top rated university.

Next favorite is Temple, they win and they have a La Salle alum As head coach;
And John Cheney helped La Salle get an A 10 invite. Two class guys in a solid academic school.

Mostly joking on that one, but those announcers are intolerable. It's hard to dislike Shaka Smart, though. I like the fast pace at which VCU plays, as well. Since they're newcomers to the A10, I don't really want them winning the conference title, but I suppose I can deal with it.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

Bonnies for me.

First, my uncle went to the seminary there. Second, the history and ties between Bona and Duquesne are strong. Whatever my head tells me about future conference changes and realignment, my heart always hopes that we are tied to SBU.

There are a lot of you on here that have stated similar, and I don't blame any of you for not wanting the newcomers to come in and take the league by storm in year 1. I understand where you're coming from with that.

I hope we disappoint all of you there, and I'm sure you can understand where I'm coming from with that.

I am cheering for your success in the NCAA tournament, assuming you make it, though! Not cheering for you on Wednesday, though. Go Flyers! (Sadly, I have an 8:30 AM meeting on Thursday (Shanghai time) that will prevent me from watching that one. Feel free to taunt me while I'm away if things go awry for Dayton.)

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

VCU.
And Richmond.
And St Joe's. --I like "the Hawk will never die" thing.

But the VCU game could be ugly this year, so...

Ugh, I liked it when our team was better and some of the rivalries were more heated. Although we did manage to beat Richmond last year. So there's that.

But in the last couple of weeks the western teams have dropped somewhat in my book.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

I would have to say Fordham even though they're a train wreck. It's a fantastic school, great campus, awesome location etc.

Umass and St. Bonaventure would be the only other teams I can really get behind. I'm old enough to remember Umass-Wake, Umass-GWU, and yes, Umass-Temple so there's some nostalgia there. As for the Bonnies, I believe they get short changed. They have great fans that pack a hidden gem of an arena.

Xavier, St. Joe's, URI, Dayton, Charlotte and SLU do nothing for me. Especially Xavier...

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

I like St. Joe's. Especially fans like clark who do nothing but whine about Temple having a nicer arena because we're a state related university.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

I generally root for Duquesne and Richmond when they aren't playing Dayton. VCU will probably become one of those teams, too. My feelings on GW are directly tied to the number of Eastern Europeans on their roster. More is better, Lonergan!

I don't root against anyone unless Dayton directly benefits, either in standings or bubble positioning, by a team's loss. I hate Michigan, the Cubs, and the Steelers too much to have any more sports hate in me.

The White Sox just need a catchy name for their defense, so it can be repeated ad nauseum. Then we're there!
