Yes, but 4th in the nation offensively. Shaver doesn't waste much time worrying about the defensive side of things. They're fun to watch, though I have not yet caught them live. I have told The Boy that I'm coming down for a game this year and that he can join me or not. The $2 PBRs at Paul's Deli are just as cold either way. I'm thinking of the CoC game in February so I can catch Sam Miller and report back to Jaffie, et. al.

I’m thinking that the Mrs. Miller that you are thinking about is married to Archie.

You could probably post Sam up for an “and one”. He was pretty soft at UD ... not suggesting that you aren’t a good post player 55 ... just sayin

She's too intense for me. Hot two ways.

Re: Top 144

Interesting.. didn't expect to see URI so soon. And since this list is a matter of national security I am greatly concerned that the Bonnies aren't going to be on it. Assuming Davidson, SLU, and SJU are his top 3 A10 members I wouldn't have had any of Bona, Dayton, or Mason ahead of URI. But I'm not getting paid big bucks to shape march madness on August 21st so I'll leave it up to Welser. Which one's the 8th?

Chill, bro! The Bonnies uniquely graduated seniors who heavily contributed, so that disqualifies them from contending in 2018-19.

Dayton had the sixth best RPI in the league and finished 9th last year, and most likely isn’t projected to be in the top 8 this year. So basically Welsner is saying that the Flyer’s aren’t going to improve on the worst performance in two decades. If this happens, Grant “should fire himself” (shout out to Flyer 75).

What are you guys talking about? There’s a “Bonnies on track for top 20” thread started over on the Bandwagon.

The general consensus seems to be that despite a weakening at the top of the league, the middle of the A10 will improve, which might explain why some are predicting that Dayton won't improve their ranking within the A10 vs last year, even if the team is improved.

In regards to the A10 as a whole, I agree with this consensus, but I think Dayton seems to be getting lost, and possibly underestimated, in many prognostications.
