With one of the best coaches in the nation and outstanding win-loss records, why would they continue to play losers like Bradley, Drake, Southern and Indiana State,etc.? They would earn a big financial draw in the AAC as opposed to the disappointing turnouts in regular season away games in the MV and the disappointing attendance in St, Louis.
With Wichita State out of the MV, Bradley may look a little better. But do not expect much from Bradley in the future. They will never again attract more than third rung players.
