Davidson and George Mason have not seen a recruiting jump since joining the A-10. Correct?
The key to the Big East is charter member Georgetown. Sell the Thompson family lol.
Another key to expansion is the implosion of the Big 12 in 2024...yes 7 years will fly by. Big 10 wants Texas and FOX has the cash to bring them. LHTV is broke. I believe when the Big 12 and Big 10 gets sorted out the Big East will contemplate expansion. I believe 8 years remains on the BE TV contract with FOX. X gets $3.4 million per year in TV revenue from FOX compared to approx $500k per year it is last season in the A-10.
The difference in the Big East from the A-10 is aside from Depaul there are no off nights. Seton Hall was 12-8, 4-5 in conf play last night and played their hearts out to a 72-70 road loss at X. Teams aren't especially deep but have 2-3 guys who can wreak havoc. Injuries to Watson and Sumner are going to push X and Creighton's seed down from its lofty perch from December.
Dayton and UC have to continue the blue print mentioned above: Hold serve at home in conference play, steal road wins in conf, and schedule tough in Nov and December but mix in a few buy in games too.
Dayton's fan base and reputation is second to none. They have also had some serious roster adversity recently too...devastating things that we all know about.
The A-10 is cyclical. When 3-4 teams have a senior laden roster then they get 3-4 bids. Its just an odd year.
