2018-19 Season Previews (Media)

Thought we could start a thread to compile all of the different websites and media outlets with their UD-related previews/predictions. I will start it off with this one from a website called Busting Brackets.

The writer definitely is not looking through rose colored glasses but, at times, I wonder if his glasses aren't in need of a good cleaning. The main things that make me scratch my head are:
  1. In his starters section he only names four starters, Landers, Cunningham, Crutcher, and either Toppin or Mikesell
  2. He thinks Landers is a guard
  3. Thinks Jordan Davis was/is a bench player
Overall, his best case scenario is a top five finish in the conference with no tournament.

I remember back in the day I used to buy Street & Smith's preview every year. It was great looking back at the end of the year to see how wrong these so-called "experts" were, especially when it came to mid and lower major conferences. It just shows you how little homework these guys actually do. It's all word of mouth and based on previous year's stats. It's a lot like recruiting sites.

I like flying under the radar this year!

@JonRothstein
Rhode Island freshman Jermaine Harris is the most physically imposing big man the Atlantic 10 has seen since Mo Alie-Cox was at VCU. Heck of a shooter too.

@JonRothstein
Fatts Russell is an under-the-breakout guy nationally. Showed flashes as a freshman. Should be one of the top scorers in the Atlantic 10 as a sophomore.

@JonRothstein
Early prediction on Rhode Island's starting five: Jeff Dowtin, Fatts Russell, Tyrese Martin, Cyril Langevine, Jermaine Harris.

Rothstein was also at Bryant yesterday and reading the tweets about Bryant, you would have thought they were a bunch of All-Americans. While we know Russell and Dowtin are both really good, I wouldn't put too much stock into this.

Darn good preview. Unlike some of the others, these guys have done their homework and cross all the t's. Their indication of the middle of the A10 being jumbled, and UD with upside potential of a top 5 finish makes sense.

"but the Flyers have the upside of a Top 5 finish in the league."

I like this phrase!

I agree they actually mentioned newcomers by name, did a good analysis of the team play last year (shots, defense, etc), although I thought one mistake was mentioning XW as a key loss ... that didn't happen AFTER last season, it happened DURING last season.

I agree this was a good review and they obviously did their homework. My only issue was they said we made the NCAA four out of five years, which is true if you include last year or the year before we went, but we went four years in a row. I am also surprised that they did not talk about Crutcher more. Not that they said anything bad about him but in my opinion he is on the road to being a great point guard and I think, if they don't know it already, people are going to be wowed by him this year.

The overriding issue with all these preseason ratings is the perception that UD is in disary with all the defections, and the belief that some of the defections(Williams and Crosby and Kostas) were a critical part of the team. We are really a black box for these folks as they have no idea that the additions to the program far outweigh the losses, not to mention the improvement in team morale and togetherness. We will be a suprise to a lot of folks.

I'll be interested to see where we land when the A 10 Coaches poll comes out. That to me will be more telling as to what is really thought of about the talent on our team.

I agree with this

I think some of the reason people are down playing Dayton's chances is that while Crutcher and Jordan Davis had good seasons last year they weren't eye popping like a Kellan Grady that gets the national medias attention.

If you're someone who watched 1 or 2 games and looked at the stats those guys are probably bigger question marks

A10 coaches probably have a better feel on how good the returning talent is

I agree, but figure it will be 9 ish.

Face it, we weren't very good, and had a lot of turnover. Coaches focus on their team and recruiting in the off season. I doubt many know much more that the headlines about a team.
