Trust me they didnít pay squat. To your point, they probably liked the idea of not seeing me in the back yard. They never got used to the nude sunbathing thing.

Re: Top 144

Ya, as JAF said, if Dayton finishes 10th or worse this year then I hope Grant fires himself.

League is down this year even more than last year. VCU is in full rebuild mode at least for this year, SBU lost some stout guards, Duq has 55 new players. I think Davidson and GMU could be fairly tough but yup....2 bids. Dayton ain't one of the two but a Top 4-5 finish isn't out of the realm of possibility.

If those 2 make it in then the A-10 will have 3 bids, the conference winner plus DAV and GMU, because neither one of them will win the conference!

Do you have any room left for preseason championship trophies - I mean you dominated that from like 2000 - 2012

Yes, dominated during the mediocre Gregory years for sure. I can't recall predicting too many preseason titles under Archie and def not under Grant. Probably predicted one under Archie and that being his final year.

Re: Top 144

FWIW. College Sports Madness has started the rollout of their top 144 men's bb teams for the upcoming season.I' ll update it once a week or sooner if an A-10 team is mentioned. They add a team daily. If any teams on the list are on your schedule, you can go to the link posted by Paulxu on page 1 of the thread to view the team's preview.

144-Grambling 143- Illinois 142-South Alabama 141-Wright State 140-NC Central 139- Grand Canyon 138-Temple 137-Stanford 136-Weber State 135-Wagner 134-Hartford 133-East Tennessee State 132-Utah 131-Radford 130-Tulsa 129- Northern Iowa 128-VCU 127-UNLV 126-Troy 125-San Francisco 124-Kent State 123- Iowa State 122-Penn 121- UC Davis 120- Texas San Antonio 119- Lehigh 118- Charleston 117-No. Kentucky 116- Georgia Southern 115-St. Johns 114-Minnesota 113- So.

There are times I miss the absolute lunacy of Muddy - then there are times I really DO NOT miss him.

The preseason Championship claims were among my favorites however....

Re: Top 144

I would take a 6th place finish in the A-10 right now after the years of darkness and underachievement we lived through with Kellogg.....

Depending on how long it takes for this team to gel (the transfers), we may not be a fun team to deal with by the time the conference season rolls around....

Re: Top 144

^ I'd be happy with it too but having UMass at #88 doesn't change the fact that Joel Welser, whether a virgin or not, has dubious authority on who the top 144 teams are. I'm not sure anyone could really do a convincing top 144.

Hey, look res! Billy and Marie's comes in at #83 . Although, Welser has them listed as the 336th ranked scoring defense last year nationally. But, they were top 10 in the CAA.

Any press is good press........ especially when you have been an afterthought for so long.
