I expect that by Christmas Central Connecticut St will announce they are going to America East/CAA fb now that the NEC has just lost 3 members to the MAAC.
With what is going on with the Big East Catholic 7 and the A-10 I imagine the conferences in the Northeastern United States are in for a real shake up. A depleted A-10 is going to look to probably CAA and MAAC for replacements. Depending on what happens, the Patriot might jump in and grab a school or two like William and Mary that fits their profile. I still think the America East might make a powerplay to take over administration of CAA fb. This probably wont be the last announcement that a school is leaving the NEC for somewhere else
I think CCSU could goto the AE, something I've been hoping for for years. But I dont' see them upgrading football to the CAA unless the CAA really wants them...which if they did, they likely would have already invited them. I expect CCSU to remain in the NEC as a football affiliate if they leave, same as Wagner and Monmouth. With Albany leaving, the NEC needs members, like Duquesne is, to keep membership numbers up for football.
