    Plus, according to ESPN, a team yet to be determined that is not Butler, Xavier, Dayton, St. Louis or Creighton.

    For what it's worth.

    I think ESPN is wrong. Reading the tea leaves, the new conference would have 12 teams. Those teams would be the C7 plus Xavier, Butler, St. Louis, Dayton, and Creighton. It makes no sense to go to 13 teams, so I don't see them adding just one more team. It doesn't make much more sense to go to 14 teams. 12 or 16 teams are better numbers and 12 seems more likely.

    The decision to include public schools or not will be the biggest factor in whether VCU is included.

    Otherwise, it's Richmond. Calling it now.

    I think Richmond will be just as left out as us.

    Yeah, didn't include it initially because it doesn't effect our conference, but just added it to avoid confusion.

    This is most certainly, factually and statistically, incorrect.
