2018-19 Pre Season MBB Updates/News

Jablonski: UD's Neil Sullivan talked to me about state of @DaytonMBB, scheduling, the A-10, etc. On Anthony Grant, Sullivan said, "He has a maniacal focus on developing our current players and just relentlessly recruiting new talent to the program. He aims high."
https://www.mydaytondailynews.com/sp...mEWLbrEuixfdK/

In response to a tweet about the article. Jablonski says they are dotting the I's and crossing the t's on the schedule and that it should be released soon.

Finally, maybe now we can get on to the up-coming season and leave behind any further discussions about 2018 fellows coming in.

I think AG focus (as well as staff) is to seek out who they can nationally as the article suggests, for the openings in future recruit years (i.e. 2019 and 2020).

These are the players that we need to get inside their minds to start formulating UD BB. Have a time to reflect and listen.

As Flyer Faithful

following a 14-17 season we are in a "Show Me" mode rather than a "Tell Me" mode. We'll be hoping and watching.

After looking at the schedule it looks like I will only be attending one non-conference game at UD Arena. Mississippi St is the only team that even remotely excites me enough to make the 3 hour round trip.

Detroit should be much improved since they just hired Mike Davis... Guys this is not bad... B4A Loaded, a top 25 team at home and one on the road, a solid game on a neutral court, IPFW is always a decent mid major team as is Western.

What did you guys expect... we were coming off 14-17... What massive teams would come here this year? lol

It just feels like the goalposts keep moving. We could have played a 16/15 this year, and we still would have gotten the requisite 16 home games, instead we schedule yet another buy game for 17 home games.

17 home, 14 away/neutral.

UDM had a bunch of guys transfer out so next year could be a tough one for Coach Davis.

So when we are bad they won't come, and when we are good they really won't come?

Think I've seen this movie before.

Who says the goalposts moved? The old adage, "it takes two to tango" could have come into play here.

People complained about the non-con last year too. Then we had a top-5 SOS.

Neil Sullivan is a scheduling genius and I trust him a lot more than any of you muppets.

#3 on the list- 3. New face: Meadowdale High School graduate Jabali Leonard worked out with the team. He is trying to make the roster as a walk-on guard.

I have not seen him play, but a friend who knows his hoops quite well (coached girls hoops at the college level) has seen him play. For what it is worth, he says the kids BB IQ matches his off the court IQ, and says Jabali will contribute this season and will see the court for the Flyers.

He led Dayton city league in scoring last season at 23 points per gam

It was also #118 according to KenPom with Auburn being the only team with an at-large caliber resume that we faced. Neil did a great job getting a bunch of buy games in 100-150 range and avoiding 300+ anchors, but there wasn't a lot opportunities for the signature wins we would need.

I realize all the numbers impact the schedule but I am simply looking at the schedule as a fan who needs to decide if he wants to make a 3 hour round trip to watch a game in person.

From that viewpoint the home schedule SUCKS.

Can you explain to me the reason for the very big difference between the KenPom ncsos ranking and the ncsos? 4 vs. 118.

He led Dayton city league in scoring last season at 23 points per gam
If I got the correct Twitter line Mr. Leonard was selected 1st Team SW Ohio and 3rd Team All Ohio Div 2

Not true,



Bruce Rasmussen, selection committee chairman and Creighton athletic director

Dirk is correct in stating that the non-conference SOS has its flaws. It only takes into account the won-lost records of who you played, not where you played the game, not the outcome of the game, and most importantly, not the strength of the team you played. For instance, for non-conference SOS purposes, a game at home against 9-6 Penn has a more positive impact on non-conference SOS than a game on the road against 7-5 Indiana because winning 9/15 games is a better decimal than winning 7/12.

Non-conference SOS is not a predominant tool in selections.

Again, while non-conference SOS is a number referred to by the committee and the public, it is not the non-conference SOS that the committee looks at but the non-conference games with specifics that the committee looks at. Did you give the committee a picture of whether or not you should be in consideration for an at-large spot or a high seed in the tournament if you did not win your conference tournament?

The regular SOS only takes into account the win/loss records of opponents so it's easy to game

We had an extra game to burn this year, just roll the dice and take a chance on playing a home and home vs. a non-p5 school that might end up being good.

It is just going to be difficult going forward to get better than a 7 seed and consistently advance past the 2nd round, unless we start to dominate the A10 and become the next Gonzaga or Butler or Creighton, and I am not sure that is possible, due to the
A10 being a tougher league than those 3 leagues.

We had arguably the hottest young coach in the country for 6 years, and we topped out at a 7 seed, and only got past the 2nd round once.

We need to get down to about a 5 seed if we want to consistently challenge for the Sweet 16 or better.

Yes, the home schedule sucks. I can't imagine paying $1,000 per seat to witness maybe 3 decent teams (1 non-con and 2 league)

Compared to almost all other non-p5 schools, our schedule is generally very good. I just wish that we would take a flyer every now and then on an additional non-p5 home and home series.

Of last year's non-p5 top 100, I could only find about 4 teams IMO that really scheduled more than 5 decent, winnable away/neutral games, in order to get to 15 or more away/neutral games...Illinois State, Temple, New Mexico State, and Vermont.

It is slim pickens now, the p5 is destroying college basketball by trying to freeze everybody else out. The non-p5 schools need to start scheduling each other more, it is the only remaining option.

Wow. We play VCU, Rhode Island, St Joe, Richmond, George Mason, St Louis, UMass, LaSalle, and Duquesne. Only two of them are "decent?" I also wouldn't say there is only one "decent" team in the non-con.

I do not know how many of these are home and homes. I suppose that I would not be opposed to a 1 way road game if I felt like the game was winnable.

Playing at Duke or at Kansas is not winnable IMO.


-Illinois State...a/n with South Carolina, Boise State, Tulsa, Nevada, BYU, Mississippi

-Vermont a/n with...Harvard, St. Bonaventure, Northeastern, Marquette, Bradley, Richmond, Northern Kentucky, also Kentucky (not winnable) and Coastal Carolina (CC is not decent)

-Temple a/n with...Old Dominion, Auburn, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, GW, LaSalle, and Penn

-New Mexico State, a/n with...Saint Mary's, New Mexico, Illinois, Davidson, Miami of Florida, Southern Cal...UTEP and UC Irvine maybe a little questionable

Rasmussen says a lot of things. Not all of them necessarily true, which has confounded ADs all across the country about the annual moving goalposts. Rasmussen and others have stated emphatically that your resume' against the top schools are what matter -- in other words who have you beaten and who have beaten you. Did you capitalize on your chances. This was the entire point of creating the four Group win categories so they could better determine who is getting the job done against the tourney caliber teams on your schedule both home and away.

Creighton went 2-10 vs the Group 1 teams. They beat Nova at home and that whitewashed everything they else did or didnt do. And its not like they snuck into the bracket. They were a #8 seed.

2-10 is atrocious given their apparent talent. Didnt beat a single Top-50 team on the road.

The committee says one thing publicly, then do other things inside the war room -- and its not just UD taking issue with it. Schools like UD just want a straight answer so they can shoot at a fair target. When the target moves after you've pulled the trigger, it turns into a fairgrounds carnival game.

Perhaps Creighton was still a tourney team, but their seed and Rasmussen's connection to Creighton draws all kinds of frustration from others on the outside looking in. And Creighton is just one example. Next year, the metrics may once again change.

We've been in the mock selection room and listened to the discussions. There is certainly bias in there with sportswriters and they watch as many games as the committee members do.

All you have to do in order to refute any algebra is to simply say "well they pass the look test" or "they appear to be gaining steam" and your team suddenly has traction. Its up to the other people in the room to more or less vote your convictions down. If you're a smooth talker, it doesnt always happen. Definitely salesmanship going on. And I dont even begrudge some of it. Its human nature. You cant take human bias out of a product designed and orchestrated by humans. But there needs to be more accountability when the public statements contradicts the resulting brackets. That's the only leverage the public (and those left out of the bracket) have to ensure the race into the bracket is indeed a level playing field.

First team out on the Dance Card, yet averaged a 9 seed on the bracket matrix. That does seem to point to great inconsistency by the selection committee.

With what happened Middle Tennessee this year and St. Bonnie getting RPI doesn't hold much weight alone.

I think what he says it's on SOS was borne out in the selection process this year. It's about stacking up quad 1/2 wins. It's better to play to a Penn or Georgia State for a buy game but playing them versus Coppin State or Detroit is out on the margins for a program like Dayton

Buy games are on the margin, gaming the RPI by playing good teams for buys is worthy if you can do it but the supposed elite OOC SOS Dayton had last year wasn't fooling anyone but Dayton fans

Beat good teams, collect high quality scalps and get your reward in March

Actions Speak Louder than Words

The beauty of non-conference scheduling is it expresses the confidence or lack thereof that the Coach and AD have in the team. While they did well with 6 of the 13 opportunities they selected the third worst team in the final Sagarin poll (Coppin State) the 12th lowest rated team (Presbyterian) the 39th lowest (Detroit Mercy) and the 64th lowest ranked team (North Florida). This seems to suggest that Dayton will not finish in the top half of the A-10 in the opinion of it's leadership.

They did not select Coppin State, CS was forced on us as the forth game in the B for A tournament. Please get your facts straight before you make judgements on the leadership. Agree some of the buy games leave something to be desired

Very small sample, but Chatman's handle seemed a bit sloppy, but his D on Landers was great.

A-10, C-USA each have a lot riding on a loaded Battle 4 Atlantis with Dayton, Middle Tennessee headed to the Bahamas

Two flagship programs riddled with question marks will look to make statements in a star-studded field.

It sure as hell hurt us last year. If we had sophomore-year-X our W/L total would have been pretty different IMO.

But we didn't and it wasn't. He did hurt us last year, glad we won't see a repeat of that this year.

Rasmussen and others have stated emphatically that your resume' against the top schools are what matter -- in other words who have you beaten and who have beaten you. Did you capitalize on your chances. This was the entire point of creating the four Group win categories so they could better determine who is getting the job done against the tourney caliber teams on your schedule both home and away.

Creighton went 2-10 vs the Group 1 teams. They beat Nova at home and that whitewashed everything they else did or didnt do. And its not like they snuck into the bracket. They were a #8 seed.

2-10 is atrocious given their apparent talent. Didnt beat a single Top-50 team on the road.

The committee says one thing publicly, then do other things inside the war room -- and its not just UD taking issue with it. Schools like UD just want a straight answer so they can shoot at a fair target. When the target moves after you've pulled the trigger, it turns into a fairgrounds carnival game.

Perhaps Creighton was still a tourney team, but their seed and Rasmussen's connection to Creighton draws all kinds of frustration from others on the outside looking in. And Creighton is just one example. Next year, the metrics may once again change.

We've been in the mock selection room and listened to the discussions. There is certainly bias in there with sportswriters and they watch as many games as the committee members do.

All you have to do in order to refute any algebra is to simply say "well they pass the look test" or "they appear to be gaining steam" and your team suddenly has traction. Its up to the other people in the room to more or less vote your convictions down. If you're a smooth talker, it doesnt always happen. Definitely salesmanship going on. And I dont even begrudge some of it. Its human nature. You cant take human bias out of a product designed and orchestrated by humans. But there needs to be more accountability when the public statements contradicts the resulting brackets. That's the only leverage the public (and those left out of the bracket) have to ensure the race into the bracket is indeed a level playing field.

The only thing that proves is that it doesn't matter for P5 schools.
