Re: A-10 / Mountain West Challenge

My ‘guess’ is that all four Atlantic 10 teams left out in 2020 would automatically be in for 2021. I do think the A10 is intent in giving every member an opportunity to participate I'm not so sure about that. These matchups are about increasing the visibility of both conferences and giving each oth...

Re: State of the Progam

Interesting comments from Bamford re: the AAC/independence. Not sure if it’s lip service or his real feelings on the matter https://www.gazettenet.com/UMass-footba ... e-29609334

Re: The flagship...

US News uses the “official” names because they are ranking pretty much every school out there and need to be specific. Other than UCLA, for the most part any of those schools that are flagships don’t use the locator in any branding scenario.

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

This quote doesn’t sound too promising if we’re looking for him to help our case: “"Whoever it is has got to bring value and I don't know who's out there that does," Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said. "Is there anyone that can enhance the situation?"”

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

Keep in mind the options available to the AAC-either a split arrangement with Army football only along with a non-football school or the remaining c-USA/MAC detritus. If ESPN has a say in this (which I think they will with the new media rights contract they just signed), who among what’s available h...

Re: UConn back to the Big East?

Even though the AAC doesn’t have hockey, I hope the Frozen Four appearance shows how big the bandwagon is when it is activated. The fact that both football and basketball have just done hard resets and the administration is putting $$ into them should also help. We need to sell them on the future po...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Looks like there's some interest in 2019 PG Josh Pierre-Louis. He's re-opened his commitment since Marvin Menzies was let go at UNLV If he has a motor anything like his brother Nate from Temple, then bring him in ASAP. That kid is tough as nails and all hustle and effort. He follows quite a few UMa...

They were all notified today I’m told
I’d imagine this was done now so they can look for other jobs during the final four weekend. Apparently it’s THE big networking event for coaches

He’s gonna need to recast the turnover chain into a T!

Re: 2018-2019 Season

I don't mean to be a jerk about this, but can we stop referring the women's team as 'gals'? 'Ladies' or 'women' make sense but to me 'gals' seems sexist and condescending. Instead of the 6' 5" 'gal', how about the 6' 5" 'center' or 'player'. If I'm off base on this, please tell me, but I don't thin...

Top-Tier schools will be fine. They always are.
Exactly-they'll just get the best of the players in the next tier down.

Re: Fire the OC

The most important/telling parts of the Bamford quotes are these: " I tried to build this schedule in a way where we could go out and really figure out if we could acquit ourselves and get ourselves prepared to be a bowl eligible team” "I think we’re going to have a level of success this year that w...

Re: NCAA Announces End to RPI In Determining Tournament Field

One of my main concerns with this is that many of the criteria they have laid out are interrelated and will favor the P5. For example, strength of schedule, "quality" wins and losses, offensive and defensive efficiency ratings and margin of victory are all obviously P5 leaning metrics. The P5 have b...
