Re: The Future A10 Thread

If, it's me, you add Davidson, GMU, and Siena after Umass leaves putting us at 12. Perhaps you even take a Detroit, Cleveland State, or a Murray State. Still, Davidson, Charleston, and GMU and other southern schools is more in line with where I'd like to go. I don't care that Davidson's gym is garbage. They are good and have name recognition. Also, I hope the old A10 schools schedule the A10 OOC. It'll be nice to beat Big East Schools regularly.

Re: The Future A10 Thread

siena would be a nice geographic, market and facilities fit if umass leaves for the nameless.

Davidson is ummm ya.

Not sure GMU will ever revisit success of Larranaga.

Siena has a facility but a lousy record of late.

I feel like a CAA fan circa 2012.

Siena is one good coach away from being an Eastern Version of Dayton who actually wins. They fill up a 16000 arena. GMU might not be as good as Laranaga days, but Paul Hewitt is a solid coach who did some good things before things went south at GT. Davidson is nice, but I doubt they would join to be honest. I still believe in Fordham for some reason. I just don't think Pecora was the answer.

Re: The Future A10 Thread

From what was on ESPN this would basically take away the midwest portion of the A10.
The move for the conference would them seem to be a north - south alignment with the addition of maybe a Davidson and ???. Just a thought.
However Bernedette McGlade did a great job getting Butler and VCU and I am sure she has been working on options for the past few months.

At least we have a solid commissioner. I have a lot of faith from her.

I am not sure where people get this Sienna sells out an NBA Arena idea from. This is from their website:

This past season, Siena established a new regular-season program attendance record with 114,383 fans, an average of 7,626, attending the 15 home contests. The Saints game with UAlbany became the 29th game to draw over 10,000 fans at Times Union Center, and the matchup with National Runner-Up Butler reached the set capacity of 8,444.

If Iona didn't play in a pitiful little high school gym, they'd be very appealing. Then again, they do.

Agree with all of this but the Davidson gym is just fine. Check it out.

Re: The Future A10 Thread

Davidson is a nice program (and their gym is indeed fine), but I have to wonder about their budget. Considering all the shit St. Bonaventure gets around here, what would happen with a 1,700 undergrad school in the conference?

Re: The Future A10 Thread

Davidson has a pretty damn solid endowment. If they chose to invest, the Wildcats would be fine in the A10.

Re: The Future A10 Thread

If we stay with the A10 I'm fine with it. Lots of quality traditional programs. Opportunity for many to rise again. No reason we shouldn't be the next league just behind the Big East. As I mentioned elsewhere it's not the first contract, it will be the second and the third big east contract that is relevant and while they'll have a big initial advantage things change. Circle the wagons and maybe we'll meet up again.

Re: The Future A10 Thread

The A-10 will ultimately add 3 more schools.

My predictions:

Northeastern
Siena
George Mason

That would give you:

Northeastern
URI
Siena
Fordham
St. Bonaventure
Duquesne

LaSalle
St. Joes
GW
GMU
Richmond
VCU

Re: The Future A10 Thread

First calls I make would be to George Mason, Murray State, and Wichita State. Make Wichita State say no. Frankly, I don't know if they will. The MVC minus Creighton is a TV wasteland. The A10 already has TV. I know this, if they don't call Murray State they are nuts. That program poops out 20 win seasons like Jamie Lee Curtis on that yogurt.

If one or more of those 3 say no, look at Belmont, Davidson, Drexel, Delaware, and Northeastern. Solid programs who will benefit from added exposure and money.

The A10 will likely lose 4 schools to the Big East, but is still in a much better position than the MVC, who is losing their only school with any consistent visibility. It will have VCU, St Joes, UMass (at least for a few years, perhaps longer), Rhody, and Richmond/Dayton. Add the right programs and it's still a very good, 2.5 bid league.
