Not bad. I'd rather have WSU (discussed a few minutes ago), but not bad on short notice.

Not bad at all.

Davidson is a good program. Certainly not geographically ideal for our western family members, but from a VCU standpoint, this is terrific.

GW, VCU, UR, George Mason, and Davidson? That's a dream from a regional basketball perspective at our level.

I'm arranging for 5 gigolos and copious amounts of blow to be sent to Bernie's office tomorrow morning.

Fantastic work.

Yep, the roots of the A10 is the east coast and it's a good move.

Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)

I'm crushed but Siena has nobody to blame for this but themselves hiring a bum like Mitch Buonaguro.......

What happened to Siena being the next team in?

I don't know if the ball has stopped rolling yet. The Big East has tabled expansion, so it might take longer. Remember, 4 teams checked out of the A-10 this year, and it is still believed by some in the media that there are more on the way...so I don't think the game's over by any means.

Anyone worried about how Davidson fares post-McKillop? Could they become Fordham-esque with the wrong hire when he retires?

I honestly see Siena's fate tied to the western part of the A-10 in a big way.

Relax... I talked to the subordinate of the person who told me about the order of expansion..

Siena is absolutely still in play and the reason why Davidson jumped up the list was due to the fact they backed away from their COC demand which was a staple of their request. It is logical to assume that they (Davidson) said well SoCon stinks so let's get out of here..

Siena's summer invite is still there
