It’s HATE WEEK, as the Flyers prepare to take on VCU on Wednesday. Dayton has the opportunity to win its first outright regular-season A10 title, so the boys had to bring back Mat from VCU Ram Nation.com to break down this week’s YUGE contest at the Arena. The trio quickly recaps the weekend’s action: VCU lost a tough one on the road to Rhode Island and Dayton escaped with a miracle win over Davidson. Close games have defined each team’s season, some good (for UD) and some bad (for VCU).
Jerry Palm? Is he a serial killer, the man with the plan? Mat provides a nice breakdown for Wednesday’s game as the boys verbally assent to everything he says. The talk quickly shifts to the A10 tournament — who is the favorite? Who are the sleepers, and who are the deep sleepers? After some riveting discussion, the gentlemen breakdown the All-A10 team, choose the Player of the Year, select the Coach of the Year and even pick out the best fan base of the season. Mat brings up the specter of fellow fans going at each other via Twitter, blogs, etc.
Then things go off the rails. Oscar talk sparks up and Blackie gives the recipe for making an award-winning movie. It’s definitely a fast-forward worthy portion of the cast. Can the Atlantic Ten get three at-large bids in two weeks? The consensus is…maybe. Donnie expresses some interest in next season’s Saint Louis team to everyone’s surprise. Is Michelle Williams hot? Do you even know who that is? Mat is bestowed with the honor of picking the Yacht Rock outro, he goes with Lionel Ritchie (which is never a bad instinct).
