So basically La Salle can say that they beat Northeastern, on the road, playing without one of our key players as well.

Fact is La Salle won the game and Northeastern lost. And La Salle won on the road playing without Garland. You might want to do a little research before you claim teams were playing without anyone missing, because obviously La Salle was not playing with the same team they have now when they played Northeastern, and La Salle still won the game on the road. Just FYI.
That is what we call owned...

Always cpico do not feed the troll

Re: Could the best team in the CAA win the A-10?

Can NU win the A10 this year. No.

Based on the evidence you supplied. An even stronger no.

Point of fact, Richmond's best two wins were without their best (or one of) players. Winning with injuries is an indication of a team's strength or lack thereof. Going 0-3 against the conference you'd suggest NU could win, injuries or not, is self-explanatory. Actually, I guess it's not, but now enough of us have explain it to you it's at least group explanatory.

However, I'm not as quick to dismiss your proposal as others. VCU is doing just fine in the A10. Many of us a couple of years ago would have snorted at the suggestion a CAA team like them could win our league. (Anybody else notice some poster as an aside suggested the top of the CAA recently was better than the top of the A10? Huh? When?) Also, though it was a decade or so ago, Richmond jumped ship and competed just fine at the onset. That being said, it looks like neither one of us will win the A10 in our first year but the gap between leagues isn't as big as we'd contend.

NU might have a shot a the top of half of the A10 but with the logjam that is the thick middle of our conference, that might also meant they are still only the ~11th best team in the league.

Charlotte beat Northeastern in the Alaska tournament. I doubt they would finish in the top half of the league if they were in the A-10.

Could the best team in the CAA lose at home to Georgia State? I think the answer is yes.

After yesterday's home loss to Georgia State, northeastern is 151 in the Pomeroy ratings, putting it roughly on par with Rhode Island.

Re: Could the best team in the CAA win the A-10?

This is just one of the silliest topics I've read on these A10 boards, and that's saying something.

Re: Could the best team in the CAA win the A-10?

Top 10? I really doubt it. Look at the standings in the A10 right now. 8 of NU's wins are in a watered down CAA. They're 0-3 against A10 opponents. I think they'd sit somewhere around 14th.

Georgia State won due to a spectacular performance by a freshman, this was also not because of NU's defense, there was simply nothing they could do to stop him. Following his 27 point performance, GSU's R.J. Hunter had 38, and 26 point games. Really nothing you can do about him. Thankfully, GSU does not qualify for the conference tournament due to the CAA exit fee.

NU now sits at 10-1.
