Yeah, but time wounds all heels, as John Lennon said. Pitt did the same thing to Bona in the late 90s when we won out there. They sent us a check to avoid the return trip to Olean. Meh. Moving on. Rhody will be fine. This series seems like a home run for both leagues.

I'm not so sure about a home run, I doubt very many of the possible matchups will have any material effect on anyone's tournament resume. Maybe more of a double down the line...

Up yours, res!

If this setup simply adds a solid top 30-50 game for our should-be top 2-3 teams each year, then I’d absolutely consider it a home run—especially given the difficulty most of our schools have getting truly quality H/H series.

I sense some college educator grade inflation entering into your evaluation.

Just like the ACC games used to buy out the Barclay Center? The A10 will screw it up.

I knew this was coming. I was going to attempt recreating your vernacular earlier today, but aggrieved-for-no-reason, Midwestern, beyond-middle-aged guy was beyond my ability to emulate.

You are so clever. Fortunately, you don’t really know me. If you did you would you would realized that I am not aggrieved. I have no resentment against the system. I am also not beyond middle aged. I am situated firmly in the middle of being middle aged.

I am sorry that I don’t have a lot of faith in the conference management. I am neutral on a MWC challenge, but the MWC as a whole is marginally better from a RPI standpoint than the A10. What does it actually do for either league? Instead of the H&H with William & Mary, St. Joe’s can fly commercial to Fresno. I guess I see why you are so excited by this.

I'm tempering my excitement until I know whether Fresno State is a top ten team when playing within ~50 miles of I-5.

Shots fired!

I don’t know, fellas... what do we want (assuming we do a “challenge” like this)? It isn’t about who the mid-pack teams play—let alone the bottom. It’s about the two leagues getting together to try adding an extra couple Q1 type games.

Re: Miscellaneous Stuf

Did like the initial post and like the tournaments for our shots at decent RPI match-ups. Nov 23 we'll play either Nevada or Tulsa from the AAC in Las Vegas. Let's see how this deal plays out. Especially since RPI was good in the past, but not so much now. Any word on the location? Bet they want Las Vegas. People liked Pittsburgh for the A10? It will be interesting to see the teams and where they will be played.

So what was the story, did we flat out not put anything in the Barclay ACC deal for cash if they never honor the games or we just got hosed. There better be something in this deal if we play out west and nothing is played here in the east.

Re: Miscellaneous Stuf

With the P5 conferences seemingly headed towards 20 game intra conference play, scheduling games against other then the Podunk Valley States is going to get more difficult. I would like to see the A-10 form an alliance with the AAC and another conference (MWC) is fine for scheduling purposes. Play one game against a team in each of the two conferences at home, and one against each conference on the road. That's four ooc games for each of the teams in the three the conferences every year. JP can be in charge of scheduling.

Re: Miscellaneous Stuf

Duke does not have one true road game OOC this year. They have only neutral games.

Talking about taking your team on the road to make money. Wofford College will play at Standford, at Oklahoma, at South Carolina and at Kansas. That will probably fund all their olympic sports for the year.

They also get UNC at home, in a return game, after beating them last year in Chapel Hill!

Will Wade should have either used a middle man or talked on a pay phone in a dark alley.

Actually was that Groucho Marx in Go West 12/6/1940
John Lennon getting a green card 7/26/1976
Or Nick Lowe releasing a song of the same name 3/15/1983?
