All the home teams are favored.
Vegas doesn't know what to do with the Bonnies.
The line for the Bona game is probably out there somewhere. When I see it I will post. ESPN sometimes gets behind with the spreads.

We're gonna need someone to weigh in on the win % acceptability rate. 8-0 is the only acceptable outcome. However that's unlikely so is 6-2 predictable? I see LaSalle is shitting the bed. Davidson locked in a tight one with NE. 4-4 should have been a cinch, but let's go full A10-ness and go 2-6 tonight.

No bueno! 3-7 Northeastern goes into Belk & beats Davidson while one win Lafayette is spanking
La Salle. It is the third CAA team to beat Davidson this season.

A10 is an absolute dumpster fire.

Saw on twitter that as it stands right now, Dayton's A10 schedule consists of 15 Q3/4 games. That's going to make an at-large pretty tough to secure.

There's going to be an A10 team in the top four that has 15+ losses and maybe a 20 loss team in the top 8.

Who's legitimately an at-large contender in the A10? No team in our 15-team conference has a Q1 win at the moment, which is insane. Not sure how this can get better. Some say a 16-game conference schedule, like what the WCC is doing next year could help, but it doesn't matter if you consistently underperform as a conference year after year in the OOC.

NET 87 - SLU: Q1 0-3...Q2 2-1 ... No Q3/4 losses
NET 88 - Dayton: Q1 0-4...Q2 0-0... One Q3 loss..Zero Q4 losses
NET 103 - Fordham: Q1 0-1...Q2 0-0..Nine of 11 wins against Q4
NET 106 - UMass: Q1 0-0...Q2 2-1...Q3 4-2...Q4 3-0
NET 145 - VCU: Q1 0-2...Q2 1-0...Two Q3 losses...Zero Q4 losses

This is the worst I remember since 2006. GW was an at large but only because they didnt lose until the A10 quarters. Their OOC was garbage. That GW team wasn't anything better than SLU or full strength Dayton.

You nailed it, third- doesn't matter if you consistently underperform as a conference year after year in the OOC.

Richmond, Dayton, Bonnies, VCU and SLU all had a bunch of coulda woulda shouldas in OOC last year that made a difference in 1 at large vs multiple. Changing the # of conference games wont impact the results. It either gets done out of OOC or it doesn't, sure as hell hasn't this year.

As an aside, since the A10Talk board of ours is deader than Zoolander's dead mother, we rolling it up into here?

Current conference NET is 12. It seems to me that rarely with that sort of place in the ranks, the tournament rarely takes an at large team. Even if you have a really highly ranked team in the NET or RPI, if they don't win the conference tournament they may get left out.
We've had that happen before.
