With the whole conference realignment situation right now, one of the teams that are in contention to join the Atlantic 10 is the Quinnipiac Bobcats. With Temple leaving the Atlantic 10 and joining the Big East, it opened up the door for the conference to expand. Butler is the newest member to join the Atlantic 10. Can anyone imagine what impact joining the Atlantic 10 would have on Quinnipiac? Quinnipiac would have teams like Butler, George Washington, and Xavier playing against them at home. Their home games would be sold out.
In the past Quinnipiac had a few games on NESN and SNY, but now the school could have their games on television on a regular basis. When Tom Moore left UConn to take over as Quinnipiac’s head coach, he was very big on trying to get big recruits to join his program. Joining the Atlantic 10 would allow Quinnipiac to emerge from being a smaller program off the radar to becoming a good competitive men’s basketball team.
