RE: In what sports are your conference's fans especially proud?
The CAA is strong in field hockey and lacrosse, especially women's lacrosse. They often have two or three top 25 teams in women's lacrosse, and Delaware won the national title in field hockey last season.

James Madison has also been very strong in softball the last few seasons because of the ace pitcher they have, Megan Good. They nearly went to Oklahoma City last year and hosted their Super Regional.

Rutgers: extracting dollars from Midwestern rubes.

I just realized I misread this and this was a conference question.

AAC: Football is the obvious answer. The AAC is the league of teams trying to crack the Cartel's sclerotic setup.

B1G: As the Cartel's Cartelest league the B1G's favorite sport is extracting dollars from media conglomerates, as well as making other leagues kiss Delany's pinkie ring.

This is a good answer. The MAC has long punched above its weight in football. This is the sport that brings us together. I don't know if there would even be a MAC without football.

Another answer for the MAC is men's soccer. There is Akron's national title, of course, but just the fact that we manage to field enough mens' teams to sponsor a championship (with some help from West Virginia) says something about our commitment to the sport.

Schad: the fact you need a nonconference member to e able to sponsor a sport says THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what you claim.

Think about it: The MAC sponsors men's soccer with five full members and West Virginia. In contrast, the Big 12 does not. Neither does the SEC. Neither does the Mountain West. Given the size of budgets in the MAC when compared to these other FBS conferences, I'd say that shows commitment to the sport.
