The La Salle poll
So what's your guess for what happens say between now and December 31, 2020?
Stay put in A10 with no changes? Drop some sports but stay A10? Keep all their sports and change leagues? Both drop some sports and change leagues?

I say they drop a few sports and remain. One thing about college sports and life is pride. If Chicago State hasn't dropped, then very few will.

There is the option of not opening the thread/poll.

RE: The La Salle poll
On the one hand, the responsible thing for La Salle to do if they feel they can't keep up is to drop down a conference, or out of D1. Over the long haul, the operational costs will save the school a lot of money it really doesn't need to spend. FWIW, D3 is thick in the area...they wouldn't be in bad company were they to go that route.

But...A10 money and NCAA payouts. They aren't going to ever see that in the MAAC.

Honestly, I think they should look at America East if they're buying. Again, not bad company to be with. They would be the only Catholic school in the conference, too...one of the few "only" things they could enjoy these days, because Catholic schools are a dime a dozen in Philly, the A10, and MAAC.

That seems most logical to me, they sponsor a huge number of sports.

La Salle will stay in the A10, at least for the foreseeable future. The only way to realize significant savings is for La Salle to drop to D3 which is not under serious consideration. La Salle sponsors a huge number of sports as a recruitment strategy for full-time undergrads and with exception of basketball runs those teams on shoestring budgets.

It was explained to me that Water Polo was started in 2016 to expand the student recruitment footprint into Florida and the West Coast in particular. La Salle already had the facilities and was able to join conferences that required only van travel. The coaches salaries are tiny and La Salle is discounting tuition anyway so why not call that discount a partial athletic scholarship. I don’t know enough about La Salle’s budget to know if this strategy actually makes sense but apparently it did cause a spike in applications in the target areas, almost none of the team members are locals and they were able to increase by some small amount the number of students enrolling from outside their typical geography.

La Salle has a relatively new president. She is the first person who is not a Christian Brother to hold the position. I’m pretty sure that bringing in the consultants and disclosing the discussion university-wide was another of her attempts to shake up the organizational lethargy there much more so than any real intention to drop down to any lower level of competiton. I wish her luck. She’s got a very tough job.
