Doods, I read a rumor the MAAC was looking to expand to 12 teams. Have any idea is this is legit or just stupid internet rumor? I'd love to add Hofstra, and bring Fordham back into the fold, their foray into the A-10 has been disastrous.
Also, Bob Morris would be a good choice, they have outgrown the NEC, a very solid program
Bryan, I have no idea where this "rumor" is coming from, but there is absolutely no validity to it. On the off chance that it was something legit, I checked with Rich Ensor. His response: Expansion hasn't even been on the league's agenda in 18 months, and only then it was simply a matter of basic planning discussions.
Figured as much. It's too bad though, I'd love for the MAAC to get 2 more teams. Thanks for checking
Expansion is off the table because the Big East and Big 10 will have a major shake-up this offseason, which will take effect in the next 2-3 years, and there will be an effect on the MAAC - Ensor knows this.
Any comments on the security issue raised by the league against the TUC after the championship game which led to the Pandemonium on Pearl Street?
