I assume G'town, Nova and St. John's find some sort of softer landing than this. As a Xavier fan, I don't want to be too greedy. That leaves:
Kind of a homely lot (Marquette excluded). But it would still look nice in a combo with 8 A-10 teams (so that the auto-bid remains):
The biggest upsides for the A-10ers would be (along with adding Marquette) losing Fordham, LaSalle and Duquesne. I'd almost miss St. Bonny. Almost.
Never happen, I'm sure, but it's fun to dream.
