This year A-10 was 11th, CUSA was only 3 spots behind at 14. You tell what that trend says.

Not sure its a trend though. The A10 had a crappy year and still got three teams in the NCAA. CUSA had a pretty good year and still only got one.

Davidson got in because they won the tourney. The Bonnies got in because they were able to con their way into a good RPI.

I don't think either of those teams are better than MTSU or Western Kentucky. I'm not sure Rhode Island and MTSU would be all that different.

It's interesting that you left ODU - who finished 2nd in CUSA - out of your statement. Not saying that I disagree with you. Just saying that it is interesting.

ODU was certainly better than St. Bonnies and I think on par with Davidson (who I think we would give trouble to a la Marshall). Where weren't as good as Rhode Island, imo.

Thats my opinion, I didn't really care to post it because the responses would be "LOL, WE BEAT NO ONE. THIS CANNOT BE DEBATED!"

I just do not agree with us "certainly being better than St. Bonnies".

I was not a fan of them. Watched them a few times and don't like the talent outside of Adams/Mobley. FWIW, their KenPom ranking was 68.

They did make their conference championship game and beat 5 tournament teams, including Syracuse and Buffalo on the road.

Stockard was a good player and got a lot better at the end of the year. Say what you want, but in no way do I believe we were better than St. Bonnies.

And also lost to 3 teams worse than anything we lost to.

I'm with you. I don't think we were better than Davidson either. I do agree that MTSU was as good as URI. In fact, I would say that I think MTSU and WKU were at least as good as URI.

Is that Forgot Where I Was University?

ODU should schedule them next year. They might see ODU as being too big of a drag on their RPI though if Jeff doesn't find a player or two to replace Porter.
