Davidson and St Louis are my NCAA picks. If there is a 3rd then its a surprise
You forfeit games because you would not qualify for the post season, purely selfish reason.Reading an article like this will always make a Bona Guy wonder what “lack of institutional control” actually is.
One of our employees (still) blew the whistle on a coach who used his father (school president) to get a JC recruit, just short of an associates degree, admitted to SBU. We self-reported, sat the player, and forefeited games. The punishment levied by the NCAA was severe, and it cited that “lack of institutional control” as the primary charge. Since then, school after school has dodged major punishments despite far shittier actions.
What’s clear is that blowing the whistle and displaying honesty, as was the case with SBU and Lonergan, is what’s punished by the NCAA; lying, cheating, stealing, and defiantly challenging charges—despite being caught red handed—seems to be the way to go when dealing with the NCAA cartel. Ask UNC, Louisville, etc.

Pittsburgh just beat Saint Louis.
The A-10 will almost certainly be a one-bid league. In fact, the committee should take away the league’s auto-bid this year. League is ... not good.
The league is down...well, no shit. But one loss to an ACC team is the tipping point?
