I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that by 2020 there will be a plan in place for a Midwestern conference that sponsors women's lacrosse, likely under the MAC banner.

Regarding Bellarmine--if they ever do come up adding football would be a terrible move. I see them as more the Belmont type, ignoring football and focusing on basketball and boutique sports like lacrosse.

Agree, Lipscomb and Belmont ( and Trevecca Nazerene and Cumberland) have all seen explosive enrollment growth in the Nashville area and one will likely take the Lax plunge.

Buffalo should have both lax and ice hockey, but it doesn't have either. Expect it to add one, as that was the reason IMHO that it dropped baseball. The MAC schools that don't have a hockey facility nearby will probably add women's lax eventually. 2020 might be too early for a MAC women's lax, but 2025 is a very good bet.

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


It is not a fantasy. Bellarmine already have men's LAX in the Southern Conference as an affiliate. They need a home for women's LAX when they add the sport. It is part of the ASUN/Southern Conference women's LAX.

id like to know how BE/American split came about. Did both sides sit down and say lets do this and figure out which affiliate went where or did the American schools say we are leaving and florida and Vandy are coming with us?

The AAC teams would have wanted their own league, as it wants a better chance at an autobid and more control over scheduling. They weren't about to leave the Big East unless that left them with an autobid too. As far as Florida and Vanderbilt, the AAC would be preferred because it's more like the SEC for athletics and geography.

In addition, both leagues may add have know about additional schools from their own leagues that want a spot but haven't made it public.

Ironically, both Vandy and Florida used to be a member of the single sport American Lacrosse Conference, which was mostly Big 10 schools before Maryland and Rutgers were added, which caused that league to disband.

What happened to the four non-PAC 12 MPSF teams? Fresno State, UC Davis, Saint Mary's, and San Diego State can keep the autobid for up to two seasons with fewer than six schools, but it looks like the MPSF has scrubbed their site of any references to sponsoring lacrosse.

St Mary's dropped lax, so with only three schools the MPSF sports federation dropped it as it doesn't have an autobid. Also, Denver went to the Big East last season and there were rumors that Colo St was going to add it, but that won't happen by 2018. If UNLV adds men's hockey talk was they would add women's lax as a Title IX counterbalance. San Diego St, Fresno St and UC Davis are screwed as now they need three new teams to get back an autobid.

The PAC12 probably didn't expect the MPSF to fold up shop when they withdrew their teams as the St Mary's decision seemed to come out of the blue.

With no reference to women's lacrosse to be found, you ask your fantasy question "Who is gonna invite Bellarmine up as a whole for all sports".

Bellarmine has already stated that if women's lacrosse is added they hope to move the sport to D1. There is no reason to believe that Bellarmine women's lacrosse would not join the ASUN-SoCon affiliation if it does compete in D1.

Why are you replying to my post when I am supposedly on your ignore list.
