Re: Around the League

Now why am I thinking about this...

VCU - 20 home losses in the 12 seasons before Rhoades
vs
The Mooney Bell Curve - 31 home losses last 4 seasons, 17 homes losses the 6 seasons before that, 28 home losses the 4 seasons before that.

...sorry, the NBC A10 preview had already been shared. Dauster fooled me with a retweet.

The chart is also kind of misleading for like, Prairie View, who have a home-court win streak because they've played only SWAC home games and Non-Division I Huston-Tilletson at home. The only team NOT in the bottom 75 of the RPI/NET in their stream is 164 Texas Southern.

Deadest time of the year. Last season is dead and buried. Rosters are pretty much set, and it's a bit too early to start predicting. Let's hope it stays quiet. No unexpected bad news.

Re: Around the League

We could talk about the TBT. Dayton got a team together called the Red Scare and they lost in the final of the Columbus regional over the weekend. Tomorrow, at the Stu three A10 TBT teams play in the Richmond Regional.The Web (Richmond) plays the Green Machine (Mason). RamNation (VCU) plays a team called DRC. Some former players from the conference like Marcus Posley have been tearing it up.

Re: Around the League

The following is excerpted from a 6/25 article written by Dave Jablonski of the Dayton Daily News wherein he discussed with Dayton AD Neil Sullivan the difficulty in scheduling games with good opponents. The revenue generated by Dayton's Basketball team goes a long way towards funding its other intercollegiate teams which I suspect is the case for other A-10 members as well. I would think his comments apply to other conference schools too.

“It is the most difficult scheduling environment I’ve been involved with since I’ve been here, since 2006,” Sullivan said. “We have just been soundly rejected by what I would say are other NCAA at-large contending teams: from the Power 5, from the Big East.”

Dayton released its non-conference schedule July 30 last year. Sullivan and Darren Hertz, the assistant coach who assists in scheduling efforts, have work ahead of them to complete this schedule.“At this time last year, we had maybe a game to go,” Sullivan said. “We’re sitting here in late June, and I’m still holding three or four dates, trying to hold out for these games to happen, which are home-and-home series against at-large caliber opponents. It’s very challenging. We ran some numbers, and if you look at last year’s NCAA tournament, there were 29 at-large Power 5 or Big East teams, and we were the only one in the Atlantic 10 to have hosted one on our home court in Mississippi State, so we were above average at one.”Dayton and other similar programs are starting to see the impact of the power conferences moving to 20-game conference schedules. That lessens the number of non-conference games they need.Most Big Ten and ACC programs, Sullivan said, have between 24 and 27 games already set before they have to worry about filling the rest of the schedule. Michigan State, for example, will play 20 Big Ten games, four in the Maui Invitational (one on the mainland), one in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, one in the Gavitt Tipoff Games and one in the Champions Classic. It also leaves a spot for Oakland on the schedule most years. If Michigan State plays 31 regular-season games, that leaves three open spots on its schedule.“The average Big Ten team maybe has 24-27 games already done before they even have to take a phone call from Dayton,” Sullivan said. “Then when they do, they just flat say no. Dayton just doesn’t fit what they’re trying to do.”The Atlantic 10 and Mountain West Conference will combat their growing scheduling difficulties by starting a challenge series of their own in the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons. That series was announced in December, and it will ease Sullivan’s scheduling problems by one game.Still the ripple effect of the power conferences distancing themselves from the rest of college basketball, dominating the NCAA tournament field in the process, will continue to hurt Dayton and others. Sullivan said every scenario is on the table when it comes to scheduling, including playing true road games against programs who won’t return the favor by playing at UD Arena. While that would cost Dayton a home game, Sullivan said he would not let money be a factor in scheduling.“Obviously, we need a certain amount of home games to fund our athletic program,” Sullivan said, “but when it comes to at-large opportunities and competing in that space, we would do what’s in our best interest, and that means a lot of things.

My understanding is the UD ooc schedule has recently been completed and will be released shortly.

Setting up a solid OOC schedule is one of the biggest jobs a coach has in my opinion. I would say, recruiting, scheduling and of course winning are the most important. As a VCU fan it has been interesting to see the scheduling over the years. Believe it or not coaching movement helped in the OOC scheduling department due to contractual agreements. Capel was an Oklahoma h&h, Grant became a Bama h&h, Shaka with UT and now the Wade LSU h&h begins. Getting a P5 team to agree to a h&h is next to impossible. Thankfully, Tony Bennett has been accommodating over his tenure but otherwise it is tumbleweeds and selecting top mid-major programs as either buy games or home and homes series. For instance, Rhoades got Wichita State to agree to a series along with the College of Charleston. A coach has to pay attention and become Nostradamus of sorts. It is not easy.

No one wants to go on the road, especially against a program that they see as beneath them. P5 schools don't want to play at any non P5 expect for the elite BE, and AAC teams. The elite P5s won't even play at other P5s unless they're at the top of the pile. Of course this trickles down. A10, and MW teams ain't going on the road to play teams from the Summit League either.

The A10 quandary is whether to choose to go on the road as a buy game. Most coaches to not want to be in the habit of doing so.

Re: Around the League

I'm not exactly sure what happened here in Spartanburg with Wofford the last couple of years, but it has been fun to watch/attend.
Perhaps it was the influence of Jerry Richardson (former Panther's owner/Wofford alum) when he funded the new basketball arena.
But for the first year UNC came to town to christen the place...and hosted Wofford at the Dean Dome the following year (a game which Wofford won). Same deal with South Carolina.
For some reason, Wofford is going back to Chapel Hill to play at Carmichael this year. Don't know what that's all about. But it was great to have UNC and USC on campus at little Wofford College.

Re: Around the League

Dayton has released its ooc schedule for the coming season. Season ticket holders will not like the lack of a 'name' opponent for a home game especially considering this is the 50th anniversary of UD Arena. Unless indicated all games are at home.
11/9 Indiana State
11/16 Charleston Southern (mainland game for the Maui Invitational)
11/19 U Nebraska Omaha
11/25 Georgia Maui Invitational
11/26 Michigan State or Virginia Tech Maui 2nd round
11/27 BYU, Chaminade, Kansas, UCLA 3rd round other side of the bracket in Maui
12/3 Houston Baptist
12/8 St. Marys in Phoenix Colangelo Classic
12/14 Drake
12/17 North Texas
12/21 Colorado in Chicago Legends Game
12/23 Grambling
12/30 North Florida
