@FUCoP69, I am going to agree with HKRam here. Comments like you made are what start flame wars. We don't need that. It's only been a week, but it has been a good week as far as that stuff goes. I would like for it to continue.

ace, I'll accept a reprimand from you, but not from HKRam. He's in no position to chastise anyone, given his posting history. In any event, my post was not directed at him.

Fred has still not answered my question. I do believe that he is a troll.

Fucop, Didn't Ace warn us all about hurling abuse. Please stop. I've completely laid off of you.

Mind your own posts. This has nothing to do with you.

Enjoyed the article.  It shows all of Joe's hard work paid off and the torch was successfully passed.

Here is the SI conference preview.  Note that they predict 9-13 will be within a game of each other.  There is a lot of uncertainty outside URI Bonnie’s SJU who I think are the clear top three.

Whoops, you beat me to it.  I just posted this over in the starting 5 thread.  I took too long doing my write up.  What I find odd is no mention of JC in the write-up when every other team's projected leading scorer gets a mention.  I mean, hmm, projected leading scorer, assist man and rebounder (at least tied there), second in the nation in steals?  Forget him, that Prokop Slanina is tall.

Not that it matters.  And it's at least nice for the other guys to get a mention.

9-13 all predicted to be within a game of each other.  Interesting year coming up.

SI's A-10 season projections are up.  These are usually pretty good, if prone to the same problems all projections have.  How are they supposed to know what guys are "in the best shape of their lives" mentally and physically a la Will Tavares (we'll see when the rubber hits the road).

https://www.si.com/college-basketball/2017/10/19/atlantic-10-projections-preview-team-rankings-standings


For Fordham? 6-12 and 13th.  The only specific shout-outs are (i) to Slanina being tall, a "true center" and hence his defense is mentioned, I suppose with the idea he's a rim protector, although Chartouny and Chuba had better D ratings last year, and (ii) that Evans can really shoot it and was an Oklahoma State commit at one time. They do give a projected top 7 players with ppg, minutes and projected o rating, but no specific mention of Chartouny in the write-up.  That's odd, since EVERY other team's leading scorer is mentioned in their write-up, and on top of that Chartouny led the league in steals. 

No matter, really.  They have Zarko in the top 7, 4 ppg, 52% of minutes, when, depending on Raut he is likely 10 or 11.  I guess that's based on history of minutes played when healthy. They also give Zarko the highest O rating, which seems to be solely based on the fact in limited time last year he had a 4.33-1 assist ratio (well, at least he doesn't turn it over much but he doesn't get all that many touches). Not to rag on Zarko.  I like him, and maybe I'm selling his time short. No mention of Hicks or Bunting.

Ah well, a computer projection won't know everything someone watching the program might know.  We aren't all even sure about some of the line-up.  It's a hoary cliche for a reason: That's why they play the games.  And SI did peg us for 7-11 last year in conference.

I'm keeping my rose-colored glasses.  Over .500 in the league.  The A-10 projection talks about how many top scorers are in the league.  Well, we'll zig when they zag and win with D, with the scoring spread around.

This topic has been moved to Fordham Sailing because we have a Sailing board for crying out loud.
