Is a remodeled Dayton Arena a prerequisite for a Big East bid
Dayton is spending $72 mill on remodeling the UD arena. It seems needed even to keep the NCAA first round games, but will it put UD over the top for a Big East bid?

Unfortunately, the biggest thing that Dayton can do to get a Big East bid is something that they can't control, which is to be located somewhere other than Dayton, Ohio.

Yeah, because Creighton or even Xavier a few miles away is a hop skip and jump from NYC.

I think he was speaking from the perspective that Dayton isn't exactly a bustling market of opportunity. It's not like Omaha or Providence are either, but PC is a longtime member while Creighton was in the right place at the right time.

I wouldn't think of it as a pre-req though, more like the price of admission if they do get an invite. And the chances of that happening will be a little bit higher with these renovations, although having another team around as a logical addition to the Big East to put the league at an even dozen wouldn't hurt.

I think Frank is right on the location. Dayton is in market #64, and also within shouting distance of Cincinnati and Columbus. Also, isn't Xavier now blocking Dayton's entry to the Big East?

I love it when similar schools group themselves into the same conference. Birds of a feather flock together. I remember being disappointed when the new Big East invited Butler. Butler has a very good program, and is in the footprint, but isn't a Catholic school. At the time, they had recently been to two consecutive NCAA national championship games in men's basketball. I just hated to see the BE break up the Catholic consistency.

Dayton fits right in, both instiutionally and geographically. They also have a traditionally strong and well-supported program. Location works against them.

It's more of the fact that it's Dayton is so close to Cincinnati. Don't need two schools in the Queen City.

Right place in the right time? Creighton drew NBA sized crowds over the years. Dayton's main knock is that they are in a would-be duplicated market.
