Hofstra, Northeastern and Drexel are in the CAA. No way are they leaving that league. They are also huge schools, far larger than the MAAC schools you mention, which would want nothing to do with them for that reason alone.

Maybe, but school size isn’t entirely relevant in today’s D1 athletics. It’s about commitment to athletics, facilities, etc. Look at the A10 and its diverse institutional styles.

In that sense, the schools I mentioned fit much better, as private schools without football, with the aforementioned MAAC schools. The CAA is rooted in the south, and I’d imagine the northern schools would improve recruiting in a more regionally-focused league.

The WNY trip is seem as an albatross by fellow league members, so I’m just worried as I consider the current D1 climate.

No one is knocking on our door or Niagara’s. Both schools held on to being independent way too long in the late 70’s. What could have been. What’s the choice now? Unless the MAAC expands and you have two divisions east / west like some of the power conferences. I don’t see Ensor being that aggressive. We better figure it out. Look at what the other schools are doing with regards to facilities.

Wonder what the future of the MAAC looks like. Robert Morris & Sacred Heart wanted in and the league said no.
