I have no idea if Richmond is going to be included or not, but the edit in that article tells me that we are a probably player.
I'm a GW fan who doesn't want to see Richmond go, but I have to think they will get an invite. G'town wants them, and they seem like a good fit. VCU is the better team right now, but I would bet that Richmond will get the nod over VCU and Creighton.

I think that Richmond is definitely a serious candidate and I too don't know whether they will ultimately get invited. I think that the edit to the blog post was more likely to correct an error than anything else. Those pieces are written hastily. In this instance we're talking about a blog entry on a game night at a road game where the writer is trying to meet the dealine for the game story and potentially get to the airport for a flight. People make mistakes when they're rushed.

As it is they gave up NCAA tournament money to the CAA if I recall correctly and could now be stuck in a very mediocre conference.
The CAA was kind of falling apart anyways due to football. Georgia St and ODU are leaving for football, VCU made the best choice no matter the outcome of the C7, the A-10 will still be stronger than the CAA. Of course VCU may find itself alongside the C7. I'm assuming one of the first calls the A-10 makes is to George Mason once this shakes out. They seemed close a year or so ago, but decided to pull back until the conference shuffle was a little clearer.

Also, I just learned that St Joes, UD, X, UMass, Richmond & URI are all associate members of the CAA, so we should all be experts of that conference

I think Richmond is a serious candidate, too. It looks like it's down to 7 teams for 5 spots, and perhaps the 5 are chosen if Feinstein is indeed correct (VCU and Creighton are out). I'm just not in the business of breaking reports down word for word. The Marquette guy said Siena and Detroit are not up for discussion. Not sure why that needed to be said, but it was. That's all I take from it.

Indeed.

I wonder if Mike is a Wright State alumnus.

Re: C-7 to be 12 to 14 teams?

I'm still worried about SLU getting left out.

Dayton fans probably feel the same way.

No, pretty sure he went to Oral Roberts and got his graduate degree at Ball State.

I hear they want to start with 10 and the three additions are Xavier, Butler, and St. Louis.

I also give them [the Flyers] a 50/50 chance on BE+5.
WTF ?

Re: C-7 to be 12 to 14 teams?

For perhaps the first time ever, I may agree with Muddy. Did you post an 85% chance of 10 teams in the morning and little to no chance of 10 teams in the afternoon? If so did something change?

The rest of the post is just Muddy being Muddy.

No, xu95 posted that he felt Dayton had little to no chance of joining the BE +3, and a 50/50 chance of joining a BE+5. Muddy just selectively quoted.

Losing Richmond is not the end of the world for the A-10 given there would still be a team in the city with VCU. While UR has generally been a good member of the league and had some decent moments, its loss does not compare to Temple and Xavier.

The quote is not that far off from being all of what xu95 posted, but it lacks context. xu95 was referring to Dayton's chances of being part of the C7+3 which he sees as little to no chance. His reply does not have context b/c it was implied in the title of the thread that it was contained in.
