    The A10 is actually a pretty decent conference and Sean Miller is a heck of a coach. Plus they just made an elite 8 and players play attention to that, just like I'm sure potential recruits paid attention to our Big 12 title and Sweet 16 run. Plus, Dayton has a good fan base, solid arena and a fairly good history (sort of I guess)

    Have they put players in the NBA?

    Sean Miller is a heck of a coach, but Cooke is not visiting Arizona. (Try his brother Archie.)

    Hopefully it will be just a little bit better than the Giorgios blow up. That was terrible.

    If I were Dayton and I saw Freddy and ISU were after the same guy, I'd have a contingency plan too.

    Yes. They currently have three NBA players. Anyone who rips on UD saying they have a mediocre program in a lousy conference are plain stupid. While I do feel that we should beat Dayton in the Cooke battle, it won't be easy and won't surprise me if he picks Dayton. The A-10 also has VCU, St. Louis, and UMass, who usually make it every year. Dayton will also be going to the Big East within the next two years most likely. They have a lot going for them.

    That being said, it's tough to say no to the dreamiest coach in basketball. That's our biggest selling point.

    Since we will be fine either way, I won't be worried if he goes there. I ant GT worse.

    People wants to go to UD because it's good school and top 10 party school in the nation plus they have pretty good bball tradition.

    That's a downgrade. If you don't believe me go pull up and see who's in the "new" big east.

    We are big time, U of D is not.

    Dayton has a respectable program, but it is just not the same.
