Re: Around the League

Indy will almost certainly get 2020. Atlanta would probably get one anyway, but a new stadium almost guarantees it. New Orleans is a final four hub, they probably get one.

I think Phoenix will get the last spot. Hasn't been a final four out west since 1995. It's time. The stadium has hosted a regional, College football title games, and soon to be a 2nd Super Bowl. They're more than ready. Minnesota, Dallas, and St Louis can fight for 2021-2024 spots.

Re: Around the League

On the fan base ranking: We were standing around Beale St after the Elite 8 game, and a group of Florida fans walked by and started talking to us. After talking about the game a bit, they paid Dayton fans the highest possible compliment: "It felt like an SEC football road game in there". The area around Beale St and the arena was a sea of red, including a small park roughly 1/2 a block by 1/2 a block filled shoulder to shoulder. It was incredible.

There are only two A10 arenas that could fit Dayton's season ticket base, UD Arena and Chaifetz. And by tipoff on opening night, UD may have out sold Chaifetz.

Dayton fans, man. We are a disease. Symptoms include a red, vest shaped rash and an irrational sense that every black referee has it out for us.

Uh oh! Ramble like Rothstein is at VCU so it is about to be Twitter Havoc.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 17m
Greetings from VCU! Here to check out the clear favorite in the Atlantic 10.

Re: Around the League

Uh oh. Rothstein makes every team he visits sound like the 1969 UCLA Bruins, so I'm sure the "talent" evaluations will be "off the charts" for the Rams.

Re: Around the League

Can we ban Rothstein's (porn) tweets for one day? Or mark them NSFW?

You are funny paulxu. Hey, I have a question about the bathrooms at UR's football field. Why in the world do you guys put a huge sign about prostate exams right above the urinals? I know that would seem to be the perfect place to advertise but when I attended the UR/New Hampshire game on Saturday I found it to be comical and strange at the same time.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 36s
This could wind up being Shaka Smart's deepest team at VCU. Rams will play 11. Have reserves that would start at other A 10 schools.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 1m
Palpable buzz out of VCU surrounding Melvin Johnson. 6-3 SG made 66 3's last year as a sophomore. Should make between 80 and 95 in 14-15.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 57s
Terry Larrier may not immediately start for VCU but he'll hit his stride by the time the Rams hit A 10 play. Kid has no ceiling. Pro.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 50s
Early prediction on VCU's starting five --- Briante Weber, Melvin Johnson, Jordan Burgess, Treveon Graham, Mo Alie-Cox....

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 47s
Mike Gilmore gives VCU a different look at the 5. 6-9 freshman is a pick and pop big that can face the basket. Has a chance. Very skilled.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 2m
Mo Alie-Cox is one of the more physically imposing big men I've seen in person. 6-6, 250. Will start for VCU at the 5. 8 and 8 guy.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 2m
VCU may have a better team this year than last but Rams could enter A 10 with a spotty record. Non-conference slate is BRUTAL.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 1m
The guy who's going to surprise people on VCU is freshman PG Johnny Williams. Built like a fullback. Big time facilitator. Going to play.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 1m
Quick thought: JeQuan Lewis may be better served playing in long stretches off the ball. VCU's second best shooter behind Melvin Johnson.

Older alumni use the field for lawn bowling in the off-season. It's a PSA about PSA's.

Re: Around the League

Fordham Partners with SNY for Basketball Television Package
http://www.fordhamsports.com/news/20...922144020.aspx

The SNY package brings the total number of Fordham men's televised basketball games to 17.


Proof positive that there are too many cable TV sports channels out there.
