a healthier CAA!
ODU Football... Undefeated vs JMU
I disagree. Attendance in the urban markets is small compared to attendance at schools in small college towns. But the TV and media exposure is still there and it's big. While many in the CAA bash Drexel for their poor attendance, I'm certain that Drexel's presence in the CAA is the reason why so many CAA games are being televised in Philadelphia. Same holds/held true with GSU in Atlanta, Hofstra in NY, and NU in Boston. If Drexel is not in the CAA, those CAA games on Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet are likely replaced with games from another league. With 2 teams in the NYC market, we're more likely to get more CAA games broadcast on the NYC RSN's, which is a big deal for the CAA.Part of the reason why going after schools in major metro areas made little sense when the AE teams joined. Getting into those markets doesn't mean anything most of the time because the major urban centers tend to be dominated by pro sports and the colleges are left to pick up the crumbs.
For every Shaka Smart, there are ten Monte Ross's.
gradually add football scholarships. Fordham will keep their football team where it is for a long long time.
But still it's a bit odd.
It doesn't make sense that Fordham would make themselves ineligible for the Patriot conference championship if they were planning on staying in the Patriot.
It seems Fordham changed their policy on football scholarships 1st and the Patriot 2nd.
From what I read, Georgetown is not on board with 60 scholarships. Maybe the want to move their program somewhere else.
The CAA cannot ignore UNH, Maine, Hofstra, UD and Drexel...we need another northern team or two. I'd like to see the CAA pick-up another VA team (NSU/Hampton/VMI) and another team from NC. Stay away from Liberty (too FBS trigger-happy) or anything south of NC.
So forget College of Charleston???? You've got to be kidding me. They are better than any school you mentioned above. We are looking to strengthen what will be left of the CAA. Not drag it down deeper.
SHUT UP AND PLAY!!!!
Yeager can attempt to Raid, but Davidson and C of C will not join our beloved CAA.
