I don't think the desire for another capable big is a knock against Moulaye. Anyone who saw him in the exhibition knows what he's capable of and assumes he will be productive. However, he alone does not solve our need for bigs. As far as commodities (forget "proven") he and Jordy are literally all we have outside of true freshman. Most people didn't think much of Matos transferring, but that loss only exacerbates this issue. And yes I know Matos is a "guard," spare me that line of logic please.

This goes hand-in-hand with our love affair of Chase returning. It is such a perfect and eloquent solution that despite its unlikeliness we can't help but cling to it.

It wasn’t meant to be a knock on Moulaye. Same with Zimi. Both have such a high ceiling. But to expect them to dominate next year as a freshman (rs) is a big stretch.

yes. I have no doubt the coach is more than willing to schedule us. Noticed it said nothing about whether Jean Smith is willing to schedule us or not. that ladies and gentlemen is where this conversation ends.

Updated today...6 seed for Rutgers, still seems strange seeing them that high up.

Ole Miss and SMU both in the next four out...Houston is the only AAC team.

@BSnow247
If you were hoping for live evaluation periods in AAU, that dream is basically dead. If you were hoping for unofficial/official visits in June or July, that is all sorts of dead.

@NABC1927
The NABC, WBCA and NCAA are collaborating to identify alternative recruiting opportunities for the class of 2021 and beyond.

In light of COVID-19, the NABC and WBCA have recommended an extension of the recruiting dead period through July 31.

does this mean Coach Grant, or a member
of his staff could not go there, and work him
out in a gym where he lives...

is that not feasible, probably not just asking..
they can't visit here, can we visit there...

@JonRothstein
The NCAA has extended its recruiting dead period through at least June 30th, per release.

@GoodmanHoops
NCAA has pushed back its deadline from June 3 for underclassmen to withdraw from the NBA Draft. No new date will be set until the NBA reveals its updated draft process.

I doubt transferring would be on his mind. Few kids want to sit out a second year.

Very cool. Speaking of schedules, I can't recall an off-season where we knew this much about the schedule and it looked this good so early. In years past I recall waiting until the very end (unless you were on Pride+) to hear some of these games announced. With the addition of the SMU H/H I don't think there's anything else to look forward to outside of who the buy games will be.

Conway (3)
Miss. St.
Ole Miss
@ Nevada
SMU
+ 6 buy games = 13 total OOC

Anyone see his story yesterday? Had a few of his highlights with the caption "miss it" and a sad face or something along those lines.

We miss you too brother. Come on home.

One-time transfer waivers are dead until at least 2021-22 academic year, sources told @Stadium, as NCAA Division I Council approved a resolution to develop legislation regarding transfer eligibility for January 2021 that would not be effective until 2021-22 academic year

Sources: The NCAA Division I Council voted to approve voluntary athletic activities in football, MBB and WBB to start June 1st and go through June 30th. There had been a moratorium on that through May 31st. Other sports will be acted on on a later date.


Huge for college sports to resume in the fall.

Huge. We've seen with the 14-15 team and the year the Bonnies ended up in the First Four this conference might have the smallest margin of error in college hoops

Any reasoning for this been offered? Since that means both teams still have the date open,
wouldn't another neutral site make sense? Both teams fans were going to travel anyway, so why not Kansas City or similar.

How about Nashville? It’d pretty equal driving distance for both fan bases, and less susceptible to wintertime blizzards. They could even tie-in a “music” theme: ‘70s Funk meets Delta Blues in the Capital of Country Music.

Yep. No surprise that the schools that have less trouble securing At-Large bids want to keep their schedules “in the family”, while the schools that are constantly struggling for recognition want to play as many OOC games as possible. I agree that this was a good decision by the A-10.

Isn't it just the opposite? The Dayton's of the A10 want to keep the A10 schedule at 18 games, while the Fordham's want 20. Fordham struggles to get a good ooc schedule, Dayton does not. Dayton does not need more A10 league games against the middle and bottom of the league.

I would like to go back to 16 league games.

The A10 has the same dynamics as the MW. SDSU wanted to stay at 18, the stinky schools wanted 20.

earlier this morning, but now confirmed: the UD-Ole Miss game in Chicago has been blocked by the powers that be in Illinois. Another example of the unusual challenges athletic depts are facing as they attempt to schedule in the non-con.
So what is the story? This game with Ole Miss is just gone now? Poof, just like it never existed? Find another venue. Or play in Oxford, Mississippi or Dayton or set this up as a h/h series instead.

Was this cancelled because of covid?

IMO we are still in 3rd place at best in the A10 since Davidson and Richmond are both playing 8 good ooc games. Why aren't we playing 8 good ooc games and keeping up with the competition in the A10? I want to be at the top in everything.

I still think the Ole Miss game will come together somehow.

SMU touts Dayton game

https://epaper.dallasnews.com/app/DA...3-60e255734536

After not getting a sniff of a bid to the NCAA's last season due to the 317th rated schedule in the nation, SMU upgraded significantly. With Dayton as a centerpiece.

SMU coach Jankovich, "I think it's a tremendous schedule and I am very happy with it. It took an incredible amount of legwork to get it, and I appreciate all the hard work our staff did. You don't snap your fingers and get this kind of schedule. "

This season and next, the Mustangs added Dayton and Arizona State. They also will play Georgia, UNLV, and Vanderbilt.

"It's just getting in touch with enough people and being relentless about following up on all the potential leads.....but really what we need is people to agree to play ! "

"And that is so much harder than what what people understand"

Me too. Add Murray State, Belmont, and Northern Iowa. Then go to a 16-game true round robin. To help fill the non-conference schedules you could do December games between the top contenders like Dayton v. Richmond, etc. This would boost overall SOS of teams competing for at-large bids and provide high profile "A10 preview" games. You could also pair with another similarly situated conferences like the American for a challenge.

Eliminating H/Hs for the conference schedule also limits the exposure of at-large contenders to NET anchors.

Sounds perfect, that would solve a lot of problems. I like the aggressive thinking. Would enough A10 members support this in order to get it done? Do you just need a simple majority?

Personally, I don't think this is something to fear. Strong indications that he was part of the reason for the missing team chemistry last season. Now Rhody has a flock of newbies to meld together. There are questions to be answered for sure.

Does anyone know how many of their transfer newbies are eligible next year?

BC wouldn't finish in the top half of the A10 and you are calling that a good OOC game?

Ok, I will back off a little and call this maybe a good game. If we announced a h/h with BC, you would like it though, right?

BC was Kenpom top 127, 5 out of the last 10 years.

Me personally, I'd be so p'issed if used a home and home on them... BC absolutely stinks... I'd only take a home game for them (no H and H)

Plus it helps when it's a "regional" game for URI so that's why they could probably get it.

They also draw more like an A10 team than an ACC team...I think just a little over 5,000 a game.

Being a power conference juices a team's computer numbers. Georgia was a mediocre team last year but ended up with a better NET than Belmont, Duquesne or New Mexico State

Sorry guys/gals, I would take a h/h series with BC, that would be better than 2 q3 or q4 stinky buy games. We might get a q2 road game and maybe a q2 home game if we were lucky.

Of course we'd take a H/H w/ BC. Hard for a P5 team to be a number killer because they play so many good teams in conference. Win-win scenario. If they are bad you crush them and it doesn't hurt you if they are good you get a number boost almost regardless of outcome.

Perfect example last year is Georgia (mentioned above) and VT. Did crushing VT particularly help us? No, but it sure as hell didn't hurt us and I wouldn't have batted an eye if one of those was a H/H instead of a random tourney draw.

Perfect example last year is Georgia (mentioned above) and VT. Did crushing VT particularly help us? No, but it sure as hell didn't hurt us and I wouldn't have batted an eye if one of those was a H/H instead of a random tourney draw.
Helped us enormously from a confidence standpoint. Every game in that tourney propeled them.

great move, two good games on the home schedule. Season after next setting up nicely with road games at SMU and Ole Miss, a home game in the MWC/A10 and likely an exempt tourney

Always wondered about the process of scheduling. I know a few months back DBO James Haring sent out a tweet looking for big conference home-and-homes. Of course, the head coach has some say, and I imagine the AD's office hammers out the details.

Anybody know definitively how the process typically works?


Schedule looks good thus far. Hope the do as good a job last year filling in with big fish from smaller conferences. That's a less splashy way to improve SOS.

Uh-oh. ud2 won't like this. We traded a neutral game for a home game, so we're back down to 14 road/neutral games.

Nope, just 7 good ooc games...still only just the 4th best ooc schedule in the A10 at best, in terms of the number of good games.

Sos does not really matter anymore it seems, the committee seems to look more at your q1 and q2 record, although if you schedule a higher number of good games, I bet your sos will improve concomitantly.

I'm not terribly bullish on Myrtle Beach. That said, this schedule and the A10 being tougher at the top should be good enough to get the job done.

Having the best schedule is debatable. You may have better nanes but that does not make a better schedule. All I know is that we have been in 5 of the last 7 NCAA tournaments (including this year.) That is what matters.

spot on right there....
our schedule doesn't have to be
the greatest and it won't be the greatest
because some teams do not want to come here..

it is what it is,

for me let's take our schedule
and win, a game at a time
that is 10x more important IMO

we do that, and everything else
will take care of itself...

Go Flyers!

Yeah, fair enough...but I am just tired of never being the top dog in scheduling, at least in terms of the number of purported challenging games, and really trying to schedule up...for years we let Temple and Xavier outschedule us, why did we allow that to happen? Where's the pride? Don't we want to be looked at as a top dog, and do what the top dogs are doing? Now the same thing is happening except that others in the A10 are outscheduling us. I do not know why we don't want to be the leader of the pack at least for some years. I am just disappointed that we don't strive for more. I just sometimes get the feeling that this sort of approach exists in the program: if we are willing to let little things like this be not at the top of the class, then is the administration really, truly committed to maximizing our potential? Seems like a dichotomy.

The answer to your question is yes. You are making a mountian out of a molehill. But then again if it wasn't this it would be somethiing else, with the success we have had it must be tough on you.

You keep worrying what a June 03 2020 bracket looks like and add in what a single meteorologist is forecasting for the temperature to be on Selection Sunday in 2021.

Id as soon finish my cold glass of Hudy on a summer day.

Besides not sure we were picked to be a potential #1 seed last year this time last year either ... AND NO ONE here would have done so either.

So relax, stay safe and social distance practice .... save worrying for a later time .

I don’t think anyone is “worried” . I’d say more bored in an even more slow than usual off-season. We all thought we’d be talking Obi’s NBA futures in June.

Well, the already weak Horizon League just became weaker. We would have given them Fordham or LaSalle.

I wonder if Wright State dropping to 11 sports will affect their DI status and, hence, the Horizon?

I know that WSU's financial woes aren't all due to COVID, but I would imagine that's how cuts are being framed. Does anyone know if the NCAA has released a position on schools which drop below the required number of sports due to COVID-related budget cuts?

CMU just got a waiver. I expect Wright State will as well.

Slightly different circumstance as CMU still sponsors 16 sports, but doesn't have the requisite number of male sports. They're also an FBS school, so I wonder if WSU will get the same consideration. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Heard on the local news that WSU is expected to be granted 2-3 years to get back to the required number of sports.

Agree, I do not see the appeal of RMU, they are not any good.

RMU went 20-14 and were the NEC champions. They got to finish their conference tourney before Covid shut down everything. Granted the NEC is a step below the Horizon, and I don't know what motivated the move, but it will be interesting to see how they do against better competition.

Toole their coach was a hot name for a while after they beat Kentucky in the NIT.

They've been burned as badly as anyone in the country for having guys transfer out and up a level
