Re: A10 close to adding Davidson (for 2014)
Davidson isn't small. It's tiny.The closer I look, the more I'm getting the impression that Davidson is a little odd. I suppose that makes sense. The smaller the institution, the more prone it is to eccentricity, and in that regard Davidson has a smaller enrollment than Amherst College. That doesn't change my opinion of them though. There still isn't any obviously better candidate, and I was already in favor of doing nothing and waiting another year regardless. But if Davidson is in fact the next addition to the A10, we shouldn't be surprised if their procedure for accepting a conference invitation is a bit different than the norm.
