That is amazing any pub would rate UMass in the Top 100 after last season, but agree. Should be dramatically better having a nearly full roster and having Holloway all year.

That guy can EHOA also.
You have to admit the guy has a better understanding of the league than most of the national experts. I can’t argue with his assessment of the Flyer’s other than the loss of Darrell Davis and Kostas Antetokounmpo is not as big as what it seems to be on paper. It’s a valid concern though.

His VCU synopisis is terrible. Not the pick but the content. He begins with-- I am not sure what VCU has-- and then says that VCU lost Issac Vann to graduation. Vann is a junior. I guess he is correct in that he is not sure what VCU has.

This is true, but he is still better than the experts

So is his synopsis of the Bonnies. Oh. Wait.

1. The last time the Bonnies finished outside the top 144 was 2009-2010 (RPI 156). Nearly a decade. http://realtimerpi.com/2009-2010/rpi_118_Men.html
2. The overall talent level on the 2018-19 Bonnies roster probably exceeds most of those years.
3. There's probably more collective in depth knowledge on this board about the state of the league/programs than one can find on all the pundit sites/blogs combined (particularly the ESPNs, etc.). https://www.basketballforum.com/atlantic-10-conference/682331-top-4-2018-19-a.html
4. Preaching to the choir.
5. When will these pundits begin to believe in Schmidt and the program (reloading, not rebuilding)? They should give him the benefit of the doubt. He's earned it.

I am a fan of Schmidt, but honestly, there is no real track record of reloading. There aren’t many, if any, A10 programs that can say that ... maybe VCU, but last year kind of shot that to hell.

UD was close but couldn’t maintain after Scoochie, Kyle Davis and Kendall Pollard’s class graduated. URI was right behind Dayton. We’ll see if Grant and Cox can move their programs forward, or for that matter Rhoades at VCU.

Next year is Schmidt’s opportunity to earn the benefit of the doubt. I posted this before but this league has too many coaches that earn a good reputation by making intermittent NCAA appearances with rosters loaded with seniors (in many cases 5th year seniors) or POY players that graduate.

Xavier and Temple reloaded year over year. Xavier reloaded coaches and won year over year. I don’t see any A10 programs “reloading”
