all the talk on the main board about hofstra and northeastern dropping football and what it might mean for the caa gives me a good opportunity to say this... i think we should leave the caa for the maac. i'm not even sure if they're looking into adding teams. the doomsday people on the main board seem to think there's about to be a major shakeup though with dominos falling across all the major northeastern conferences (nec, caa, a-10, etc.). it doesn't seem like a stretch then to think opportunities might present for the maac. i've actually liked what i've seen from the maac teams we've played. the competition is not a step down. in fact...i think we fit in much better with many of the programs. they're mostly urban schools without football teams. rider and niagara both have gyms like ours. fairfield and siena actually play in nice arenas. we recruit many of the same players. our whole team seems to be from the new york city area. maac games have been good matchups. i'm expecting everyone to argue for staying in the caa despite the annual whining about the caa's southern bias. if you believe in that...he's your chance to do something about it. the best argument for staying would come from all of our other sports programs...like women's basketball, field hockey, and lacrosse...who have stepped up to the plate against tougher caa competition. the men's program would benefit from a move as long as we keep striking out down in virginia.
