I mostly agree with you but St Joes isn’t helping anyone’s RPI this yearMikeUMA wrote: ↑Fri Oct 25, 2019 10:54 amI'm not so sure about that. These matchups are about increasing the visibility of both conferences and giving each other a better RPI game than they might otherwise get from a low-major regional school. A Fordham / San Jose State (hypothetical) game doesn't really do that.
I'd bet the bottom feeders get left out again in 2021, and as we've said, given the travel costs, they'd probably be fine with that.
Anything and everything that is UMass Minutemen Basketball.

I don't know if there is any significant traveling fan base for the A10 teams headed West, but this schedule will not excite them. The two best MW destination cities are San Diego and Las Vegas. No game at either site for the initial roll-out. Yea, let's to Laramie in Nov./Dec!bobolink wrote: ↑Tue Oct 22, 2019 7:21 pm^
might be better to be included. But I wouldn't sign up to change places with Duquense, who gets to visit Wyoming (potentially awful trip) and probably play at the same time as Dayton plays at Nevada. Maybe Duquense-Wyoming will be televised, who knows. I don't think I'd want any of the road games on the schedule:
Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020
San Diego State at Saint Louis
George Mason at Fresno State
Boise State at Rhode Island
Air Force at Saint Joseph’s
Richmond at Colorado State
Duquesne at Wyoming
