More interesting CAA speculation

Recommended Posts

PFL fans argue that because of the cost of tuition at their small, many time very very expensive schools (e.g. San Diego), the cost of additional travel is cheaper than the travel costs incurred.


I don't get it either, but that's the way it is. I also think that Marist was hoping for an invite to the Patriot League and that didn't pan out (as of yet). But who really knows.


The PFL is the league for teams that want DI basketball but do not want to carry the cost of scholarship DI football. The PFL, MAAC, and NEC were all products of the "Dayton Rule" which required you to play DI football if you played DI basketball. Dayton was a dominant DIII football team and plays in the A-10 for basketabll. Because of their status in Bball, they had resources that other DIII schools couldn't compete with. So DIII presidents lobbied for the Dayton Rule and they got it. Dayton and others (including Wagner, etc...) were forced to play DI football or drop.

It would make sense....unless you are a MAAC 'powerhouse' who is ashamed to be associated (in football) with the likes of UA and the NEC.



"maac powerhouse"?


What does that even mean in most sports. They lose competitively instead of being blown out.
