Dayton Likely Losers If UConn Had Won American Title

It would have been Dayton likely as a possibility in terms of the team left out.

Say Goodbye to Conference USA, UAB

+

Eliminating football jeopardizes UAB's membership in Conference USA and associated programs including the school's marching band, though the school said it hopes to remain in the league and Division I. Members of the band and cheerleaders joined in protests on campus.

Conference USA's current bylaws require members to sponsor football. Commissioner Britton Banowsky said the league's board of directors will decide UAB's status.

"We are aware of the study but disappointed with the decision to discontinue the sport of football at UAB, particularly because of its effect on the lives of the student-athletes and coaches that have worked so hard to restore the quality of the program," Banowsky said. "We don't fully understand the decision, nor agree with it, but do respect it and the authority of the UAB administration to make it."

(Cox) was on fire. If they had cracked an egg, they could've fried it on his backside because he was so hot. They shot incredible all night long. They just dissected us.

I don't know how active this forum is, but I have a question that I would like answered. What do the people here think will happen to the Missouri Valley if Creighton does leave for the new Catholic 7 league? Will they be able to find a team to replace them? Will they be able to survive as an upper echelon Mid-Major conference?

The will of the man has got be better than the skill. That’s the route I have to go and I’m not scared to grind it out.

Iona's Scott Machado could go as high as 27 to Miami. Execs loving his ability to run a team. 3rd best "PURE" PG in draft.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) June 6, 2012

8. Damian Lillard, Weber State Wildcats A scoring point guard who is best off of ball screens, Lillard benefits from both the lack of great point guards in this year's draft and the need for a scoring PG to play right away. 25. Scott Machado, Iona Gaels Machado is an athletic point guard who can really create in transition or off of penetration. He changes the tempo of the game quite quickly and is a better shooter and athlete than Kendall Marshall, a better shooter than Tony Wroten and far more consistent a ball handler than Marquis Teague. http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/7987408/ranking-top-2012-nba-draft-prospects-ncb

Here’s what I know about the 2011-12 schedule: The Seahawks have to return games at Toledo, at Liberty and at Illinois State. They have a road game at Wake Forest. They will play at Maryland on Sun., Nov. 13. The CAA opener is at VCU on Dec. 17. They will have a home game with Campbell. No BracketBusters return game next season, they’ll play at Charleston Southern in the 2012-13 season. They will be on the road for the BracketBusters in February, however. Doesn’t look like the Seahawks will participate in an exempt tournament in 2011-12, though they’re slated to participate in the Preseason NIT in 2012-13. There are still some holes to be filled (in particular, home games). More to come.
