Re: 2017-18 A10 Schedule Pairings

No pairing of UD and Bona? I have always enjoyed the home and home with Bona, mainly due to UD going to Olean only while their students were on break. Now with only one game, my Flyers will undoubtedly be forced to play with a butt-ton of fingers pointing at them. Sad days indeed.

Re: 2017-18 A10 Schedule Pairings

It upsets me, too. I don't understand not having Dayton, as we are one of the westernmost schools in the current A10. It's also not ideal to have both UD and VCU only on the road this season.

Yes, and Davidson replaced UMass. No release yet. This is just what I've heard.

Very interesting. I think since VCU joined they have only changed one home and home series. Two would indicate to me that there is going to be a big change for all the teams.

Re: 2017-18 A10 Schedule Pairings

So VCU swapped Davidson for Fordham. I enjoyed the "southern" tier pairings. All in all I cannot complain about the home and home series and home vs away single games. At this point it looks OK. Going to Gola, Hagan and Chaifetz once is tough. I do plan to visit Hagan Arena for the first time and I will go back to Gola. I like the Philly games because it is not a tough drive.

Re: 2017-18 A10 Schedule Pairings

I like the pairings for the Bonnies. I think the league did us a favor putting URI into the mix. I would have liked to see Dayton stay in though. if SLU and SJU are improved/healthy, this will really help Bonnies resume and numbers.

Re: 2017-18 A10 Schedule Pairings

I'm guessing St Bona's & rhody will be the preseason favorites, so having them play twice is nice. It wouldn't surprise me to see Saint Joe's finish out in the top 4, so that is good as well, but having to travel to both UD and VCU plus getting St Louis (though assuredly improved), Duquesne and Davidson (minus Gibbs) seems like they won't get many chances for resume building wins at home.

As far as Dayton, with so many key figures changing out this offseason, I think this is about as good an A10 schedule as they could get. Good home & homes, chances for both confidence building wins and resume building wins at home if they can put everything together under CAG.

Re: 2017-18 A10 Schedule Pairings

The pairings will never be perfect for everyone. I think SJU's is fine, and as tough as it is in the other years, having VCU and Dayton at home in the same season is fine with me. It also looks like we will only have one game against URI this year, which saddens me. I liked the games against the northernmost Rams. They were hard fought and huge bitchfests on the part of the Rams fans.

I thought about the "southern tier" but I think it started to change when Davidson didn't get GMU last season.
