I have reached billiken_roy levels of posting (7/7)

  1. Tx Taj Mahal 79. Martin and Archie were good hires. Travis is going to bring his A game to out coach them. Grant always finds a way to frustrate us as did McKillop (who will be like an AC to his son). Bottom line the top 5 ain’t gonna be a day at the beach.
  2. Not having done any in depth analysis of A10 teams I think our makeup serves us well against most of our conf opponents. Teams that I think could cause us matchup nightmares are UD and UMass. They both have a good deal of height. In the past Davidson would often play us by going with a couple of bigs at the same time and were successful playing a packed inside D. That may not be an effective way to defend us this year as we have better than average perimeter shooters.
  3. Hopefully with Jimerson, Perk, Parker, and improved outside shooting from Yurimania and Fred zones won’t be a problem for us this season.
  4. I think the NIL was primarily created to avoid a really major law suit and avoid congressional oversight of college athletics. Schools were making money off of players talents, images, uniform numbers, bobble heads, etc and players were miffed they weren’t getting a piece of the action. I really don’t think an NIL is going to stop a player from going after professional dollars unless his/her NIL deal is so crazy it matches or exceeds what they could make as a pro.
  5. I like it. Let them have the option. If they don’t make the show they still have options; G League or overseas ball. The college game will not suffer. Actually might make the game better as teams will get time to develop versus the revolving door we have today.
  6. Billiken fans have been conditioned to anticipate bad news. That’s not a reason to create it when there is none. We gotta stop with the negative vibes.
  7. I’m convinced Davidson is rated too low. Last year picked 5th or 6th in conference and won regular season title. Yeah, dad’s gone and son takes over but guess who’ll be sending notes to the bench? Davidson is never bad.
  8. Speculating on injuries should be verboten!
  9. For the big holiday tourneys the sponsors like name teams which usually travel well. Right now we don’t meet those standards. I got this from a guy who worked with the Charleston Classic group. They always have a good field, as does the Myrtle Beach tourney. Both tourneys normally have an A10 team because both venues are an easy trip for the Eastern A10 members. Dayton fans, of course, would travel en masse to Mars to see their beloved Flyers.
  10. Anxious to see if Yurimania gets listed on the Cousy award list. Should be automatic at this stage.
  11. I’ve been twice. Tickets can be had thru Davidson’s athletic site, Never a problem. It’s located in Davidson, NC. Small town quaint and nice. Restaurants are good but pricey. Charlotte is about 15 miles away. It’s where I stay. Although Davidson has motels. It’s right off of 77. Lots of choices. Belk is nice, I’d guess it seats 7k. Not near the Fetz standard but way better than a lot of A10 venues. The only problem I’ve ever had there is they kick our ass. Davidson fans are very nice. Billiken Bill can add his comments.
  12. Good stuff. Can’t wait for Nov.
  13. I may be wrong but isn’t a big factor in coming up with these rankings the profiles of the classes admitted, ie GPA and test score averages needed for admissions? If I’m correct it’s not hard to figure out why we’ve dropped. Location, location, location. WC schools have a big advantage there. I would also add that Zaga, Nova, and other such schools, private/religious, have helped themselves with their hoops success.
