Bringing this back from the wintry depths where we last left it with this: http://www.bigeast.com/news/2017/10/11/b...-2019.aspx

The AAC starts sponsoring women's lax in 2019, with UConn, Cincinnati, Temple, Florida, and Vanderbilt leaving the Big East and East Carolina joining after playing as an independent in 2018. The Big East adds Old Dominion to go with Denver, Butler, Georgetown, Villanova and Marquette.

Cheaper than women's ice hockey, clearly!

It's too bad Kent State and Delaware State couldn't switch - it would keep the three midwestern non-Big East programs together, reunite the two MEAC schools, and provide a natural bridge in the Atlantic Sun to NJIT should they start a program.

I also thought it curious that the Big East kept Old Dominion as the sole public, but I guess keeping a presence in Virginia had some value in recruiting.

Bellarmine wants to start women's LAX and be in D1 for the sport. They already are an affiliate for the Southern Conference for their men's program.

How many teams are needed for a conference? ECU and ODU added to the AAC three would only be 5. Who else leaves?

Denver would stay with the Big East. ODU would have to be an Big East affiliate rather than American. Pardon me as still counted Cincy as Big East. Six are needed for an autobid, if a single sport conference splits.

Damn, you called it.

If it’s college ice hockey or lacrosse, NoDak is your man.

Am just fascinated by sports that are growing. The MAC/Horizon will break off from the ASUN and SoCon when more schools add women's lax. Akron doesn't appear yet, even though they have announced if they get community-based funding.

Sure. One thing to keep in mind though: the US has like 350 million people, or something huge, and yet we routinely get defeated in sports by countries much smaller.

What's my point? My point is, that Americans seem to have all their sports eggs in a few baskets, and everything else is left on the wayside to rot. For men: Football, obviously. Baseball, obviously, though not growing anymore. Basketball, obviously. Everything else? At best, you have a die-hard niche. At worst, no one gives a crap and you won't get any money to grow your sport or grow interest in it.

Just makes me wonder if all this hype about growth in lacrosse is short-sighted, and in fact there is about to be a very hard glass ceiling that the sport is going to run into, as the "power players" start trying to prevent it from growing further and taking away athletes.


That's the American way. When you see an up and comer, you go after their kneecaps with a crowbar. You don't encourage them, you don't foster competition.

Who is gonna invite Bellarmine up as a whole for all sports? They have been flirting on adding football, and their men's LAX is already D1.

And there it is. Another thread hijacked by David's D2 call-up fantasies.
