Re: Our Golden Platter?
I'd say w/ 19 years of Yankee/ A-10/ CAA conference play and 36 plane trips involved for conference road games, having 3 plane trips a year is not that much of a bump. We can handle that. Anyone know what JMU uses as a cutoff for choosing to travel by air or bus? I'm guessing somewhere around 400 miles, but I suppose it would depend on whether there is an airport near enough the destination to make it feasable.
I was surprised to discover the eastern division of the MAC has 4 schools under 400 miles from the 'Burg, though none closer than 270 miles ( Ohio). Not quite as close as some of the C-USA schools, but not a whole lot farther. And the western division of the MAC is a whole lot closer than the western div. of C-USA.
Sunbelt, nothing closer than 533 miles ( GA State ). Just a logistical nightmare.
