Very childish tweet. That's like the 12 year old saying "I know something that is bad for you, but I'll let you know next week."

Don't say you have negative information coming, if you aren't going to say what it is.


Childish....

I would guess (hope) it's that we are not eligible for the playoffs next year...which would not really be news.

Who is this guy? Would a blogger really have a "scoop"? Or this just a guy trying to drive traffic or followers w/ sensational tweets?

It will be interesting to see what UR and W&M do. Will Elon go back to the Socon? Will W&M join them? I think the Socon is the best fit for both. UR may be left by itself as the only Virginia school in the CAA. If I am the Socon, I only accept full sports members.

The CAA is a 2 bid league going forward. Most seasons post ASU & GSU the So-Conn has had 2.

As long as the CAA has more than 10 teams, they'll get 2-3 teams in. If the CAA starts to break apart - or there is a major reshuffle in the east coast conferences - then things could change.

Every week JMU is still in the playoffs Chase posts an article "Why JMU will lose to ____". People that only look at the headline think he's just JMU bashing, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. It's very tongue in cheek.
I believe he started it the year after he picked JMU and they lost early in the playoffs. So as a "reverse the curse" theme, he would "predict" JMU losing to the next opponent.
Childish? Probably, but not everything sports related has to be serious.
I'm starting to believe that we may be too sensitive of a fan base. Lighten up.

Depends a little bit on perception of strength and possibly the SRS/SOS scores. If Nova makes a deep run, or a team like UD or URI gets their act together, they could get more slots. But if they perform like this season, they might be lucky to get 2. I tend to agree with BDK on the SoCon precedent. When there are fewer high ranked teams on the schedule, it works against that conference.

On the question of UR and WM, i've seen a few posters on their boards talking about Patriot. Patriot or SoCon would not surprise me. I'm not sure either school wants to put more money into football. Of course, outside of UD, most of the CAA does not show signs of ambition either. UD has made some serious investments, but has had poor results and the fan base has been badly damaged the past 10 years.

An interesting read on how frustrated Towson fans are, some want to pull the plug on football: http://www.towsonfans.com/index.php?/top...the-point/

Towson has invested in football and basketball facilities. I really thought that investment would allow them to move up the FCS ranks. They did make it to the finals one year but have done mostly nothing since. I like their stadium. Tailgating there has been fun too.
