Butler To The A10

8 posts in this topic

Yeah I read that somewhere earlier this week. I imagine it would be just for hoops.

Have they mentioned where they are going for FB? SoCon seems like a great fit.

I just graduated from there so I feel like I should know this..my interest in the school athletics are pretty close to non existent

CUSA for all sports, including football in 2015. I will link some articles. Tensor posted about it in the College football forum as well.

Butler to the A10 could turn out to be a brilliant move for the conference or it could turn out to be mediocre.

They come in with about 10-15 years of solid success behind them, but so did Charlotte, which proceeded to flop in the A10.

Charlotte obviously never made it to two consecutive national championship games, but any school with the exception of maybe 2 dozen nationally are just a bad season or two away from being irrelevant.

If Butler doesn't remain the Butler we've all come to know over the last decade, then the A10 is much weaker than it was before. Losing Temple is a big hit to the league. There are other solid programs, but Temple and Xavier were the only two that were rock solid year after year.

This is stupid. Temple was synonymous with the A10 and the NCAA needs to do something about this. They're ruining the history of college basketball.

Butler now joining the A10 in 2012 instead of 2013. The Horizon League said they couldn't compete for conference titles. It is difficult to get an at large in the Horizon League, so I don't blame them for jumping.

The A10 will have 16 teams for the 2012 season and could realistically get 5-6 bids this year.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
