Re: Deleware at. To next?

I was just saying that academically, Howard fits in better with the Patriot League than the NEC. Let’s face it, the Patriot has some of the better schools in the country with BU, Colgate, Lafayette, Lehigh and the US Naval Academy. With all due respect to the CCSU and NEC, we don’t compare with the ...

Re: Deleware at. To next?

Saw a few social media posts suggesting Howard to the Patriot League due to academic standard similarities. 🤔

Re: Deleware at. To next?

Given that semi-serious consideration was given to adding DSU years ago, and now this story, I’m expecting a “go” with this.

IMHO...it’s a good addition and one of the few (if any?) lateral additions to the NEC as opposed to a D-2 to D-1 jump.

Re: MEAC meltdown

I recall that DSU was the subject of an addition to the NEC Years ago. It may have been as a football only member at the time.

Having said that, it would be great to have another state university in the league.

Thanks Sky (pardon the informality). Those were both neat stories.
Sky is fine. Reminds me of “Sky King” when I was a kid. :D

CCSU Football in the news.

Totally bored so I found a couple interesting articles. Obviously more ink than we normally get from the local press.

Re: No Surprise there

Actually, NJIT going to the AE is a good fit for both primarily because of football...or lack thereof. If CCSU was invited to the AE, we would have the same problem RMU is having. We would really struggle finding a conference that would accept us as a football only member and football is one huge br...

Re: No Surprise there

I’m surprise it took this long to see anything in the press. Football will be a problem. Who knows? Maybe they’ll drop it if the NEC refuses them affiliate status.

Re: Sharks on Ice

Hoops, I’m not so sure that football makes any money at all. Don’t get me wrong, you may well be correct but Dr. Miller told me directly that these pay day games are so football doesn’t bust the budget and merely allows football to break even. But yes, this program probably makes the most $$ and is ...

Re: Sharks on Ice

Me 2 but we are flat broke. Especially now as enrollment has dropped and the university is reimbursing students. Also, we recently dropped two sports so I’m sure there is no way we’ll see moving up in Ice Hockey. To paraphrase our previous sentence said to me “If you think I’m going to build a new a...

Re: Fall Semester?

All Florida public colleges and universities are planning to open with on campus classes this fall with individual plans that will follow general safety guidelines.

It will be interesting to see how the football schools handle the season. There are five D-1 public university football programs here.

Re: Sharks on Ice

Seems like an odd time to add a sport when we don’t even know if on campus classes will be in session. Furthermore, where will they play? I see they have a woman’s team but I cannot find an area associated with them. I doubt they would play at the Barclays Center because it would cost them a fortune...

Fall Semester?

Not trying to stir the pot but just be prepared for anything. I’m sure this is on all of our minds.

Re: CCSU at Miami (FL) 9/25/2021

Thx for the input. I know UC is getting $2 mil for playing Clemson, hence my query about our amount.

Unfortunately, I’m on the Gulf side...hopefully home of the Super Bowl next year, about a 5 hour drive...but a 1.5 hour small plane ride. 😉
