    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies at the Stu Thread

    Well, well, well. Another fun game with the rams and the Bonnies! Unfortunately, for SBU it looks like OO is done for the year. Hopefully things improve, but it looks like a high ankle sprain for the big guy from South Jersey. Bummer, because I was trying to take my superstitious Dad to the...

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    Truer words have never been said. For a kid that's played D1 ball for four years, every time he sets a pick or even puts the ball on the floor at the low block, my heart drops...Would love to see his shooting stats for when he puts the ball on the floor v. when he just goes up with it...

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    Violet, it's not dead. Our fans just have ADD and are going down a rabbit hole about the La Salle game, who's our true rival, and a post about board decorum started by a troll named after the wife of the worst Bona coach in history. The board is active, but on all topics not related to the...

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    When Bona students are on break, the atmosphere is not all that great. This game should have been played in Rochester, but COVID deterred that plan.

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    We have many stupid fans. Please understand no sane Bona fan wants any part of the Big East. It's not exactly a coincidence Bona's rise came as soon as Xavier and Temple left the A10!

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    I've said this a few times, but if you really think about it, Bona's location might help them more than it hurts. Obviously Bona rarely gets that TOP recruit, but we traditionally out recruit the best mid-major programs that are slightly below the A10 (CAA, MAC, MAAC, etc). Bona...

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    Schmidt has three guys he will play off the bench - that's it. For the season, we have eight guys playing 10+ minutes a night. That was aided by Lofton missing a couple of games, but for reference, here's the minute breakdown for our three bench guys: Adams - 25-6-5-1-2-DNP-20-20-20-27-18-1...

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    SBU fans can be very dramatic. Think of Phillies or Yankees fans. You think you hate Bonnies fans? Well, a lot of us hate each other more than any opposing fan base ever will. (Kidding, somewhat...) Issue with our fan base is it spans so many decades and our performance has fluctuated quite a...

    The Official Beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Olean Thread

    Another year, another good battle between the Rams & Bonnies (hopefully). To answer a couple of questions to the above posters. Schmidt never seems to play more than eight guys. Last night was a bit exaggerated, but still holds true this year. I get it, to an extent, but unlike last year, we...

    21-22 Opponent Tracking Thread

    KD must have some stink on him. He kicked ass at Akron, but now has a bad rep for recruiting over players at DU. He had something like 17 scholarship players before last year started. Maybe it was weird because of the pandemic, but people start to notice, Not exactly a new trend with Mr. Baggins.

    Can we replace UMASS Lowell with Amherst at this point??

    League Loyola-Chicago to join the A-10 in July 2022

    Agreed. I wish we would have waited one or two years to see how their new 30 year old coach does. Like you mentioned, they had no success prior to PM, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out. Still surprised they don't really fill their gym frequently despite school size and their...

    For Funsies: Conference Reallignment/Creation

    Noted. I am not too educated on the payouts/finances of the NCAAT, so I do appreciate the clarification.

    For Funsies: Conference Reallignment/Creation

    Still seeing 20%. "This year, 68 teams got an invitation to play in the tournament. Each of those team’s conferences will get a piece of a pot of money known as the basketball fund. The fund was nearly $170 million in 2019, equating to about 20% of the TV ad money received by the NCAA."...

    For Funsies: Conference Reallignment/Creation

    I'm reading into this a lot differently. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the NCAA makes 70% of their yearly revenue off March Madness. They then proceed to use that $ to fund championships for olympic sports. NCAA keeps 80% of the $1B they make on the dance and the participating schools take only...

    The Future of the A10 from a Scheduling Perspective

    Dukes haven't made the NCAAs since 1977. I did think Keith Dambrot would turn things around at Duquesne, and he has to an extent, but he seems to run guys out of that program far too fast. Mason has been pretty average since joining the conference. Their fan support, like Duquesne, seems...

    The Future of the A10 from a Scheduling Perspective

    You do realize Saint Joe's has a bigger hoops budget than VCU, Cal. WSU, San Diego St., etc? While their on the count performance has been mediocre the past decade, they most certainly do not belong in a conference with the likes of Canisius, Wagner, St. Francis. Aside from La Salle and...

    The Future of the A10 from a Scheduling Perspective

    Not sure of your definition of a flash in a pan, but if Bonaventure finishes fifth or better this year, that'll be their seventh-straight top five finish in the A10.

    The Future of the A10 from a Scheduling Perspective

    Bonaventure fan here, but I come in peace! Just saw a quick article from everyone's favorite beat writer, Jon Rothstein, which made me think. He was worried that the A10 was trending towards being a perennial one-bid league due to failures from the brass in the A10. Aside from that statement...

    The Official Beat the Bunnies of SBU in the Animal Thread

    Congrats on the win, VCU. You guys look like and have an NCAA Tourney resume. I'll be sure to have Bona send you a postcard from Malibu or wherever we will be playing the second round of the CBI.
