^ Sarcasm? Or are you actually suggesting someone should get an extension based on a pre-season prediction from Joel Welser?
Welser had the Dukes in the 70s one year during Ron Everhart's tenure, and they were in the top 144 a couple of other times while Ron was coach.Holy shit - preseason 7th in the conference - Give that coach a long term extension. That is the 1st time in a reaaaaallllly long time they have been better than 11th.
I'm guessing SLU (30s), URI (40s), SJU, Mason, Dayton, Bona (70-80s)
Agreed, And where will they fit in?
Take 85’s top 6, replace Dayton with Davidson, and move Davidson up closer to URI’s spot, if not in front of URI, and I think that’s where this all important preseason ranking shakes out.https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/article/2018-07-31/davidson-primed-another-10-title-run-heres-14-questions
Maybe. I don't know where Welser will pick the Wildcats, but it has to be somewhere in the top 4.
You are absolutely right. What a pathetic oversight on my part.
You may be right. You'd better be right. The importance of this is life or death. And preseason championship trophies.Take 85’s top 6, replace Dayton with Davidson, and move Davidson up closer to URI’s spot, if not in front of URI, and I think that’s where this all important preseason ranking shakes out.
On the list so far VCU has Charleston & Rider on the OOC schedule so let's see about this.FWIW. College Sports Madness has started the rollout of their top 144 men's bb teams for the upcoming season.I' ll update it once a week or sooner if an A-10 team is mentioned. They add a team daily. If any teams on the list are on your schedule, you can go to the link posted by Paulxu on page 1 of the thread to view the team's preview.

If only, Jaffie. And, welcome back. It’s been awfully quiet around here without your wonderful prose.EYODH 84. You’re a homer.
I love reading reading the garbage spewed out by the “experts” and half of you cretins. If Dayton finishes 10th in this league next year, 75’s “Fire Grant” threads will be justified.
We return 4 starters and Grant ran off a bunch of road apples that were causing problems in the locker room. Remember this name - Obidiah Toppin. 6’10” RS Freshman with a 41” vertical. A10 Newcomer of the Year.
DC graduates Aldridge and 4 other seniors. How many starters did Bona and URI lose? Sorry G. Mason fans, you guys haven’t won squat in the A10. I can’t believe that Duquesne is projected at 105. WTF? Dambrot has 16 scholarship players and is still projected at 105? St Joe’s is a wild card. It’s been four years since Phil coached a team up, so he’s due for a decent season.
Top 4 will be SLU, St. Joe’s, Dayton and either Davidson or G. Mason. I may come back and edit this with VCU replacing Davidson and Mason. I really wish I could put the Bonnie’s up here but Adams, Mobley, Ayeni, Taqqee, and Brockington will be tough to replace.
Well 84, I’ve been busy building a privacy fence and new deck, plus work has been a bear. I love building stuff and can do it well, but I’m reaching that age where it makes too much sense to pay someone to do it.If only, Jaffie. And, welcome back. It’s been awfully quiet around here without your wonderful prose.
