I think X will have a say to our candidacy due to geography and them being a current member.

I know we have cemented our brand as an awesome BB school with a fan base others can't match. I know we have the best young coach in the biz. I know we have BE type facilties. I know our program's business model results in more cash generation as profit today than most any BE school. I know academically we fight in. I know geographically we fit.

I wish I knew exactly what it would take to cement a future invite.
This is well said.
25% of the posts on this forum seemingly surround how we get jobbed by the selection committee and how we are more deserving of a big/higher seed. Yet it seems that we are taking for granted that we are an A10 school. Why not the Big East? I hope that UD62 is correct in that we are handling things and that we are not OK with swimming in a small pond, no matter how big of a fish we are.
