Fordham loses to UMass-Lowell at home. A10 has had many bad losses and its only been 2 weeks into the season

It appears that some of the better teams have dropped since last year (i.e. St. Joes, St. Louis) without a rise in the lower teams (Fordham and George Mason are still hideous) to replace them.  We are still a good conference, just not as good as in the last 2 years.

LSF,  UMASS won't experience a drop-off and Rhode Island could emerge as a top team in the A-10 this year after the win over #21 Nebraska yesterday. So you could have 5 Atlantic 10 teams, VCU, GW, Dayton, UMass, and Rhode Island, as strong contenders to make the NCAA tournament. I think the A-10 is becoming a 'We Don't Rebuild, We Reload' league now.

Hope you are correct Thomas.  I think it is a bit too early to predict 5, especially URI and GW.  Lets see where everyone is in 2-3 months.  I will say that Fordham seems to remain an anchor for the conference.  They are NEVER good.

No surprise that SJU and SLU are down.  Both revolved around a core of outstanding seniors, much like us next year.  The difference is we hopefully have some recruits this year who can step in as juniors (plus Cavanaugh will be a senior, Roland a soph, etc.), whereas SLU and SJU are both basically relying on freshmen.

One interesting note about Fordham is that the relationship between Coach Pecora and Jon Severe has gone completely sour.  Severe has been benched and is barely doing anything at all this year.  He was suspended for the first game, and he's played 11, 11, 17 minutes in their three games since.... scoring a grand total of 5 points combibed.

Really strange, but a safe bet he won't be there after this year (and Pecora will almost certainly be gone, assuming his contract is at a poiint where they can get rid of him).

In defense of SLU, didn't TAMU-CC give Georgetown a real run for their money in the Verizon Center already?
