Im not trying to be a dick but look around. St Joes just scheduled Tennessee the other day. They also played Auburn, Kansas and were supposed to play Nova. Rhody had an awesome schedule with WKU, Seton Hall (last minute game), BC Wisconsin (also scheduled at the last minute). Meanwhile Cuse was actively looking for a game and we didnt get them. Teams are scheduling so many games off the cuff and we havent gotten one. We have an at large caliber team and the A10 is strong but we will not sniff one with our schedule.Bona03,
Who else in the A10 has gotten marquee games? URI-57, Dayton-3, Rich-38, VCU-68, SLU-49 and Davidson-75 were all top 75 in the NET rankings last year while Bona was 122.
That ranking is not going to do you any favors when it comes to scheduling. It's as simple as that. Could we have scheduled a low end game for last week and one more for this week? Probably, but those games aren't helping our RPI, so they don't do us a world of good.
If it weren't for our positive test, we would most likely have scheduled replacement games for the MTE Tournament.
ETA: St Francis was a game we schedule after the fact
