Does that mean that Xavier is considered a mid major like us since they are non power 5 ???? There isn't any official rule to who is and who isn't a mid major or high major.

True, but they are a program that reaches the NCAA tourney almost every year, and advances in it pretty often. To get to that level would be awesome. Agreed, but still not in a power 5 conference so they have to recruit with that handicap just like we do. Still wish the A-10 would be more proactive...

What's nice to see is we are in these guys' final 5 or so, and we are the only "mid major" in the group..... Now closing the deal with guys like Williams or Harris is another thing......but it's at least possible. We aren't the only non power 5 team of the group, Xavier is in there as well.

With the Neveda road game being added this year, how many games are we short from the max now?

Also interesting to note, we potentially already have three road games set up for next year with PC, Brown, and Holy Cross all being on the schedule. Tough to add anymore above that.
