No, it is a homework thing. Sure, you may have an opinion, but it is a baseless one. URI and UMass are two of the stronger teams and programs in this league, and one can make a pretty convincing argument for St. Bonaventure being a quality program.
Sure, UMass has stunk it up the last few years and their attendance is lousy, but they were the NUMBER 1 team in the country a decade ago.
URI was a very solid program during the Skinner-Penders-Harrick era. And perhaps you're forgetting, or perhaps you NEVER KNEW, URI was PICKED TO WIN THE EAST THIS YEAR. Take the two best players off most teams for the season and of course they're gonna suck.
St. Bonaventure was a consistent postseason team very recently, and they frequently sell more than our place seats, despite being 2-20.
I would have no problem debating how the A-10 should be 12 or even 10 teams. We debate this 4 times a year here and three more times on the A-10 board (maybe you should check that out first, net time). But instead of making a solid argument, you go off on how Fordham are net year's contenders in the league based on one sloppy game, while at the same time UMass and URI (two teams that in the last 15 years have performed FAR better than GW), should get the ae. You're not a bottom-line kind of guy, you're an idiot.
