    Just to give you an idea about the difference in leagues.

    Rhode Island finished in 13th place in the 14 team A-10

    URI record vs A-10 4-12 (8 home/8 away)

    URI record vs CAA 2-2 (1 home/2 away/1 neutral)
    (wins over Hofstra and vs JMU, losses @GMU and @GSU)

    Not tougher than I think. My "conference hopping" story is now done and in the queue to be published shortly after the brackets come out. I make your point. I'm really happy with how it came out. Some tremendous quotes from some significant people.

    Looking forward to it Jack.

    I hope you included some stuff on things like San Diego State moving to the Big East for football. That kind of stuff drives me nuts. Yet another thing with conferences unfortunately driven by money.

That's how deep the A-10 is right now - moving to the A-10 for us would be tougher than some might think.
    The Bonnies knock out Chaz & the Minutemen, 84-80. They'll play for the title at 1pm tomorrow against the St. Louis-Xavier winner.

    Nothing about BCS level conferences whatsoever. It's all stuff that applies to us and schools similarly situated.

    Butler has a great program and yes Saint Louis University from the A-10 is in the NCAA now. The A-10 has a respectable Midwest presence.
    You have to hope Hofstra puts a bid in. Butler wants to take advantage of a major market. Hofstra is in a major market already. Anything is possible. We will have to wait and see.
