Thanks for the report. I have to admit early in the summer when I saw how many top players in the conference had graduated or transferred I was more optimistic than 6th. But it appears that several teams reloaded rather successfully? It also seems that the conference has become loaded with experienced coaches. Drew is still a young rather inexperienced coach compared to many of the coaches in the conference.

Has the A-10 improved enough to be more than a one bid conference this season?

A-10 must win some Q1 games and stop stumbling against very bad teams to get some at large worthy teams. Multi bids will likely come when there's an at large that loses to a hot team in the conference tournament. That's what happened in 2022 and 2019. In 2021 there were two at large worthy teams.

The key is how well the A10 does against non-conference teams. That sets the standard for how good the best teams in the conference are.

Without solid wins in those games, the committee has no way to determine how good 2nd- and 3rd-place teams are compared to the field.

Hopefully, the Ramblers will set the bar high on Wednesday.

Just peaked at some A-10 scores and yikes. Not a strong start. Hope everyone can go on runs in their second halves. What is going on?

Am I the only one whose confidence level increased after last night? The boys should do well among this competition.
