A-10 Plots Another Leap

It's been pretty interesting that while the major conference are maneuvering for football, the A-10 has quietly focused on basketball and done pretty well. Now they're considering annexing the Big East basketball schools and going from 14 schools to 21. They're currently at 16, but if we remember correctly, Temple was planning to go to the Big East (they may be revisiting that) and Charlotte wants football and will leave for that.

Your Season Long Guide To Duke Hoops!

“The Fan’s Guide is the essential source for Duke basketball fans in 2012. It is packed with brilliant analysis and writing by the ACC’s most astute basketball writers. I have not enjoyed any reading as much this season.”
Professor Walter Manley, II
“If you love NCSU Athletics this is a must read, I will buy it every year, very thorough and precise.”
Richard Mark Hunt
I was just glad to find a magazine about Duke basketball. I thoroughly enjoyed the magazine. It was well written and very informative. A must read for any diehard Duke fan.Camille H
"I get excited enough about basketball season as it is, but this Guide has been on my screen for weeks now and I'm more excited than ever. Not just about Duke, but the whole league. There are some truly unique and remarkable stats in this book, enough to make you just itch for the games to begin and see how the players do this year. I think my favorite article is the one on athletes and social media, though. I've read it three times already! Great photos, great writing, and lots of both. This is essential. " PlanBee

As you probably heard, the non-football schools in the Big East are discussing dissolving the conference. The A-10 would be an interesting home.

It would be a huge conference, but they would certainly split into divisions.

And like the Big East lately, they'll have some teams at the bottom. Fordham, Duquesne, maybe Seton Hall and St. Bonnies will struggle.

Still, it's an interesting counter strategy to the relentless push for football.
