Fairfield is one of the top LAX programs not in the Big East, Big Ten, ACC, Patriot, or Ivy.
Sorry, but still a false statement.
There are only 63 Division 1 varsity programs, and if you take the Big East, Big Ten (most of which are not good programs), Acc, Patriot and Ivy out of the picture (28 programs) you have 35 programs left, and in that group Fairfield MIGHT be 15th.
First off there will be 66 programs, and the BE (6), B1G (6) , ACC (5), Patriot (8), and Ivy (7) equals 32.
Secondly, you are kidding yourself if you think the Big Ten won't quickly become a top LAX conference. tOSU and PSU are getting really good, MD and JHU are already great, Michigan just started but will catch up quickly, and Rutgers is...well okay you got me on that one.
Feel free to debate me on this I really don't mind but IMO the CAA (which Fairfield is now in) also belongs in that list of top LAX conference above...outside of those top conferences the list top program gets slim. I can only think of a couple programs better than Fairfield in the AEC.
Fairfeld is not a top lax program even if you limit it to the conference they are in (they finished 4th of 8 in the ECAC Lacrosse Conference).
4th in the ECAC behind Denver (Big East) Ohio St (Big Ten), Loyola (Patriot)...way to frame the argument
I mean come on, the MAAC sponsors LAX and Fairfield chooses
and is allowed to
(by the MAAC and CAA) play elsewhere in a better conference. Why do you think that is?
Fan of the Big 12 Conference, the Mountain West Conference and...
