Re: Hampton Univ and A-10 talked about membership?

What I would like to see, is the A10 and CAA merge into a new league, with the new league taking the best programs from each....say 6-8 A10 and 4-6 CAA.....and leave the rest to form their own lower level league.

Re: Hampton Univ and A-10 talked about membership?

AAC would make sense for URI from a competition standpoint but....

Their TV deal really isn't all that great, nowhere near what the BE schools make....which would impact a school like URI a lot due to what would be a huge increase in travel costs....the AAC has a huge geographical area to cover.

Agree with RR2 on GM....they are trending upward..... As for Duquesne, a new coach doesn't guarantee anything.....however the A10 might hold off on them due to what looks like a recommitment to athletics, with all the money they're spending. Fordham's admin doesn't give a shit....read their board.....
