Re: Around the League

UD (and the league as a whole) should welcome that draw. Bring it on.

Re: Around the League

I do not like it one bit. Unacceptable. They used to say the same thing about Baron when he coached the Bonnies. It’s such a subtle “return to your potato fields, serf” dig.

Does anyone say that...

Re: Around the League

“More with less” drives me into fits of absolute rage. What in the shit does that even mean?!? Oh! I get it! Olean is a small town and Bona is a small school! It must mean any coach with some success...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Well, paul, take a look at the ACC teams' OOC home-to-road ratio in comparison to the A10. Most of those schools play two road games. Some don't play any true road games. On top of that, look at...

That... and the committee just moves the target each year to cram in as many P5s as possible.

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Not to speak for JAF, but it may have been due to La Salle’s recent exploratory committee involving athletics and (possibly) conference affiliation.

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

No public schools in the WCC, right? Also, Im not convinced that the AFA would be better off playing AAC over MWC football.

I could see the WCC take a look at Grand Canyon... assuming they are...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Yeah... the bolded schools are the only ones Id consider right now. Vermont could make sense, too, given their upgraded facilities.

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

In the event that the A10 has to replace anyone (or not), who do you like, jp? You listed one of my favorites above.

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Why wouldn’t the Big East just invite Wichita State? Former conference mates with Creighton, no football... it seems like a fit now that the Pandora’s public school box has been opened.

Re: Around the League

And it still is, but they have outstanding wings. No frills, but you can get some drunk on swish and drive wings into your boiler.

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Yep. The door is now ajar. My bet is the 20-game conference schedule will grow tiresome; as a result, a 12th member will eventually be invited. Now that the public school precedent is set, it screams...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Buffalo has football aspirations. They think they’re some sort of sleeping giant. They would jump at an AAC invite.

The other two fit what you’re describing much better. Belmont, Murray State, and...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

It is well underway, res. There is even an obligatory, "If St. Bonaventure can afford the A10, then so can we..." brain buster.



Well said, AA. As has been said before, Cincinnati, Memphis,...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

I’ve often wondered why football doesn’t adopt a conference setup similar to NCAA hockey. It seems unsustainable for many schools to follow the current model. Why not form football-only conferences...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Yes, duq. All very valid points; however, that group of schools has largely proven to be nomadic in nature. That is unlikely to change, so VCU or UD would need to consider the long game before making...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

It would be nice to think so, but it wont be a shock if the BE eventually wants to get to 12. The 20-game conference schedule fad could grow tiresome, and maybe the jpschmack logic will dawn on...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

Once Texas goes, Oklahoma goes—whether it’s together or not. The latter has a lot of ill will over The Longhorn Network and how Texas needn’t share revenue. If OU goes, OK State follows them. Kansas...

Re: Reshuffling Conferences

I expect the Big 12 to eventually find its way toward Memphis, Cincinnati, Houston, UCF, and USF. Yes, I anticipate that amount of movement in the Big 12 in the next decade. Once the Texas domino...
