I'm wondering if the ECAC falls apart by the end of the summer. If AIr Force and Bellarmine move to the Atlantic Sun now, the CAA could pick up Ohio State and Michigan for 2014:

Penn State
Ohio State
Michigan
Massachusetts
Delaware
Towson
Drexel
Fairfield
Hofstra



I don't see Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan leaving Big Ten lacrosse. In fact, I don't think they can leave.

I think he's talking about a temporary, one year proposition since I don't think big ten lacrosse is set to start until the 2015 lacrosse season

Agreed. It starts in '15 when UMD and RU are officially members of the conference.

If ECAC folds, OSU and Michigan go independent for the year.

Interesting Inside Lacrosse article on some of the new programs entering the D1 ranks.

...have to say, I'm intrigued about Monmouth (who left the NEC for the MAAC only to put lacrosse into the NEC when the MAAC fields it) and Richmond and their intentions...

I also get a feeling Boston's program won't stay very long.

St. Francis (PA) announced that they will be moving their field hockey to the Atlantic 10 and become an affiliate member of that conference.

http://www.sfuathletics.com/news/2013/7 ... 30206.aspx

Is there any particular reason for this move? The NEC still has 7 field hockey members (at least as far as I know).

NEC dropped field hockey when Monmouth and Quinnipiac left, I think all the remaining members (Bryant, RMU, SHU, and Siena and Rider brought the sport back to the MAAC).

Just in case the NEC might get raided by nearby regional D-I conferences, would it be wise or not for them to add upcoming successful members from D-II conferences like the NE-10, the CACC and the former NYCAC-turned ECC? Plus, the possible addition of NJIT.

It couldn't hurt for the NEC to find a school from the D-II NE-10 conference to upgrade and join.

Bentley University would probably be the best option: They are near Boston (specifically Waltham), but have about 5,500 students, sponsor football and have placed in the top 3 in the conference Presidents' Cup each year since 1986, with 6 championships.

Stonehill College is also a good option: They are in Massachusetts but close to Bryant, have about 2,400 students, sponsor football and have placed in the top 3 in the conference Presidents' Cup each year since 2005, with championships in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

There are quite a few decent options, and Bryant joined from that conference and could be doing much worse. Bryant is overall better than NJIT since they've upgraded.

NJIT's problem in the NEC is FDU. Wagner to a lesser extent. It has a Monmouth and Rider problem in the MAAC, were they to even consider a public school. I wouldn't be surprised if the AE winds up with them, but who knows with schools like Wagner and Monmouth out there with football (and programs who want to collect body-bag money), and whether something finally happens with AE football sponsorship.
