danefan Posted September 13, 2007 Report Share Posted September 13, 2007 OK, so I've done some reading and investigating regarding the so-called "Mid Major" football moniker. It appears as if the NEC, MAAC and PFL together with Don Hansen and The Sports Network created the mid major moniker (poll, awards, championship, etc...) years back becasue of the lack of foreseeable access to regular rankings, awards, championships, etc... As you all know, we have achieved great strides in recent years in football. So much so that I think we no longer need to take part in the Mid Major poll. I actually think it is creates a generalization about the quality of football we play and quite frankly I'd rather not be associated with the MAAC for football in any way. I'd rather be associated with the CAA, Ivy and Patriot league. So after some investigation, it appears that unless the Athletic Department and/or NEC refuses to participate in the polls then we will continue to be ranked as a Mid Major. What do you guys think? Should the Athletic Dept/NEC brass refuse to be ranked as a mid major and refuse to be considered for the Sports Network Cup (self-proclaimed, non-NCAA recognized, FCS Mid-Major National Championship)? Just so you know, Stony Brook is still being ranked Mid-Major even thought they are at 38 (edit - thanks UAalumn72) rides. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
