  1. I had the chance to watch the Billikens for the first time this year over the holiday. They looked incredibly polished for this point in the season (a time in which many other teams are not). Should be a very good A-10 team and I suspect a sleeper in the NCAA? Nice to see the revival (even if it is one year later than expected).
  2. Bobinski just leaves the room when Xavier is discussed. I believe he can stay in the room when any other A-10 team is considered.
  3. The only thing interesting to this story was that the players went on Twitter and denied they were leaving... Anyhow, X has to fill two open scholarships.
  4. Latham has come out on twitter and said he's not transferring FWIW. Not sure about Canty at this point either. It would not surprise me if both transferred.
  5. I remember Sean Miller wanted to bring him in at X to be an assistant or Director of Basketball Operations. Apparently X has a no nepostism rule, and it wasn't allowed. This could either be a great hire for UD, or a bad one. It does alarm me more than some other hires. If he turns out to be as good as Sean was at X, the whole conference could be in trouble. Guess we will wait and see.
  6. That's an interesting .... development for Mizzou? When I looked at this thread I had to pause and place Frank Haith. Good luck to the Tigers. Have they run Alden out of town yet?
  7. How is he any better than Hewitt? Maybe the GT AD thought, "If I can't get one A-10 Coach (Mooney) I'll just substitute another? They're interchangeable right?"
  8. I thought SLU looked very good today. I'm not looking forward to the rematch.
  9. I will be there. But I don't think I'll be offering the kind of support you're looking for.
  10. I believe that UC would attempt to block X coming to the Big East.
  11. Won't this fill the arena with opposing team fans?
  12. So if that means Majerus can't recruit outside of a one state radius on a consistent basis, you're ok with that? I'm all for reducing the influence of Agents, Runners, and AAU scam artists. But there has to be way that doesn't seriously limit non-football schools ability to recruit.
  13. It's a good sign that Loe made the All Freshman team. Had no idea he was that highly thought of by the eastern half of the conference.
  14. If this happens Basketball Budgets will go through the roof due to increased recruiting budgets. This move only benefits the BCS schools (and may hurt more of them more than we think). Any school without football money will be at a huge disadvantage in my opinion.
  15. As the guy that does the day to day over at XH, I know all of the work you've had to put in to make the transfer. It looks good, and I'm sure the finished project will be great.
  16. Is this the tournament that is played in a ballroom? (There is one of these tournaments that seriously looks like it is played in a ballroom complete with chandelier).
  17. I only wish you guys had gotten this game on a more neutral court (X played Duke in NJ). That way there would be more tickets to go around for SLU fans. Cameron Indoor might be a tough ticket to get. Hopefully the first three minutes of your game will go better than X's. I think we were down 20 by that point.
  18. I prefer to play SLU home and home. 1. There's no reason they shouldn't (UD, X, and SLU are the three closest "western schools"). 2. I enjoy my trips to SLU and I'm anxious to check out the arena.
  19. The NY post has an article that discusses who might be added to the a "New" Big East. Sadly it doesn't mention SLU (who I would take in a hot second over Duquesne). http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/college/foo...0#ixzz0o84uCro4
  20. Big East money would probably allow SLU the ability to fly charter flights.
  21. I'll grant you Marquette. I'm not sure about Butler, Creighton, or Bradley (though I truthfully don't know much about Bradley). I just haven't seen any proposal for a new league that is more beneficial than the Atlantic 10 for the schools involved.
  22. I just don't see that as a conference that anyone will pay attention to though. The A-10 gets some benefit from being in those East-Coast markets, media wise.
  23. Glad nothing ultimately came of this. Never like to see this kind of stuff happen to conference mates.
  24. Anderson has my early vote for pre-season A-10 POY.
  25. I hope not... I see X, SLU, and UD carrying that league financially. That's not a good deal.
