I disagree with that.

 

We are a growing program in the northeast that has been very successful.

We are in a fairly large market where the competition D1 team is sinking and losing fans.

Our football team plays in the same conference as their football teams.

All of our other sports have been rising and have become national contenders year in and year out.

Half of the schools in that league are public institutions so we fit academically.  

 

 

Biggest problem is that they are not a lacrosse conference. If they were, it would make lots of sense.

 

I think I was just having wishful thinking.

Can we get St Louis to leave the A10 and take their spot? Travel wouldn't be that bad with the remaining schools, and the schools in that league that have football programs are all in the CAA...

I'm not trying to be critical either. I'm amazed at how well they are playing, and just a few years ago, I never would have had close to a negative thought about keeping a game against Memphis close.

We are getting high expectation syndrome!

For me, it was the low shooting percentage, and how much it looked like the team was out of control at times, especially in the first half.

I'm not sure if it's coaching, or mental make up, or what, but for the last few years there always seems to be stretched where the team just looks bad. Last year it was the last part of the SBU game on Long Island that led to the epic collapse. Multiple 3-5 minute stretches where nothing goes right. The last 2 minutes of last year's chip game. Last night it was the last few minutes where the game went from tied to down 9 in just a few possessions. It happened in the Monmouth loss as well.

If it happens early enough, the team typically finds a way to get past it and beat teams on their level or below, but if it happens at the wrong time, especially against a higher level opponent (like UConn in 06) we just can't get over it.

Maybe I'm over thinking it, but to get to the next level as a program they need to figure out how to put a full 40 minutes together on a consistent basis.

At least ESPN misspelled LCC as Sienna
