College basketball's largest conference for 2012-13 is also its most difficult to predict.

Aug 9, 2012 - Let's get one thing straight right from the outset: neither one of us has any idea what's going to happen in the Atlantic 10 this season. The additions of Butler and VCU mean the league will have a Division-I most 16 teams this season, and of those teams about 10 seem capable of at least competing for a conference championship.

The A-10 sent four squads to the NCAA Tournament in 2011-12, and though the conference appears stronger overall this season, you have to wonder how much all of these similarly talented teams beating up on one another is going to hurt the league from the standpoint of potential at-large bids. Because of this, no league in America has more to gain or more to lose during non-conference play than this one. A couple of top 50 RPI wins in Nov. could very easily be the difference between NCAA and NIT for a squad with a conference record of 9-7 or 10-6
