Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)

Sure, just as any program could when their coach leaves.

It's a risk you take. They've been to 5 of the last 8 NCAA tournaments and took Marquette to the wire just as Butler did this year. Stephen Curry, Elite 8 in 2008 etc. etc.

Along with George Mason, we've really cleaned up in conference expansion as much as we've been able to in our position.

I'm thoroughly impressed with McGlade. This is tremendous.

I've gotta say one thing: Davidson couldn't have played it any better when they turned down the Colonial.

The CAA is conference realignment's whipping boy the past couple of offseasons.

Taking public blows left and right.

Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)

I hope you're right A10BBall.. my fear is the A10 certainly won't go to 15 and even when Dayton/St. Louis leave (if they do) the A10 easily could stay at 12 teams.

It's a quality addition if it happens.

Davidson when McKillop retires is a bit different than most other programs when their coach leaves. McKillop will be entering his 25th season as Davidson's head coach. That is not your typical replacement. He will e 63 in July and there is nothing that says he has to retire when he reaches 65, so hopefully he sticks around for a good number of year more.

Good point, I have faith he'll be around for awhile. Even if that's not the case, he's built a pretty solid program at Davidson and the increased A-10 profile would really help them attract a good coach I'd think.

Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)

Now that it appears Davidson is on board, I'm not sure how it would make sense to add anyone else for the time being. If SLU and UD wind up going to the Big East, then we should just sit at 12. Also, it doesn't appear as if UMass has anywhere to go and 1-A football may stop making financial sense if that's the case. I suppose the Big East could choose only one of SLU/UD along with Wichita State. In that case, though, I'd prefer Charleston.

Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)

Between Patsos saying publicly that Siena might be joining the A-10 on-air and Goodman reporting that Siena is under consideration, it looks like they're a candidate.

I agree that the numbers work out well right now though. It certainly looks like Siena is the next in line though.

Charleston's 1 million dollar exit fee is probably a bit of a deterrent for them.

What Does Sienna bring to the A10? They had six losing seasons out of the past ten. OK! The have a very nice public arena for home games in Albany.we need to get over this fascination with arena size and look for quality teams to replace the quality teams we lost; Temple, Xavier, Butler. If we don't thnk big we will soon be a low mid- major conferemce

I like the Davidson possibility along with George Mason

Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)

Siena will be in.. The A-10 will seems to be destined for 14 schools... 12 schools doesn't seem to be in the cards..

Dayton and STL will be gone and Siena and Iona/Fairfield will hop in..

All the conferences seem to want to grow to 16 schools.. Not saying that is best for basketball conferences..
