Re: Around the League

I'm all for Hampton as a member. My uncle taught there. When it was still the Hampton Institute. Circa 1930. Yes, 1930. He was gassed during WWI, probably at the Chemin des Dames. And no, sjhawk13, I am not yet eligible for Medicare.

All true, except for the part about being all for Hampton as an A10 member.

Re: Around the League

Since when did I become the resident ageist? I bet you have received that big packet in the mail outlining your soon-to-be benefits, res.

Sign me up for this being a pile of shit. Who said that they were negotiating with the A10, Hampton or our league? I am skeptical.

Additional note: this league does not need more schools based in Virginia or in the South. I like my league schools in colder environments and in areas of greater population density, preferably within a megalopolis, tyvm.

The only one I could find on short notice was this one, from January 2016, addressed to njslufan. I believe that this was about the time you were applying to Canisius. Yes, that's right. Canisius.

Bingo. Two unnamed "sources"? Daaaa! What's the angle and what's in it for someone else? Because there certainly wasn't anything in it for the A10. Poop year notwithstanding.

I did apply! And I dodged that bullet. It came down to two Jesuit schools, the aforementioned Buffalo school and one on the left coast, and a Massachusetts state college. I went with the lattermost option.

Also, we should recognize your surprising commitment to go back nearly two years to try and find that post of mine, of which we know I have many.

I'm all for unnamed sources in real journalism about real things, but this note in a wrap-up column in the Virginia WhatsItPost does not quite hit that standard for me.

Re: Around the League

If true, that story is an embarrassment for the A-10.

Re: Around the League

I can’t imagine there is any truth to the A10 seriously considering Hampton U. It feels like a puffy piece in a local paper as a favor to the AD. I’m SURE Hampton would want to discuss membership, but Bernie politely listening and declining does not mean there were serious discussions.

Re: Around the League

Seen this posted else and have not confirmed if it was true. The P5 and Big East accounted for all , except 5 at-large bids with the AAC, A10 getting 2 and the WCC 1. So the A10 must be very, very careful before they add anyone, who can not make the A10 stronger with in a year or two.
