Working as an assistant manager at a Kohl's on the north shore is enjoyable?

In all seriousness, great post and welcome to the board. Looking forward to having UMass-Lowell join the conference.

Don't really expect them to be arrogant jumping from D2.

The only (legit- only 1) poster from SBU on this board for YEARS was Put in Rickard, who ironically no longer posts since SBU has become a good team.

Re: UMass Lowell to America East

A separate source of mine also says NJIT to AE but at a later time - let today be Lowell's day. Seems like now some real sources other than my anonymity on this message board are starting to confirm the UML to AE fodder...let the fun begin! Go Riverhawks!

Re: UMass Lowell to America East

I think that's because Put in Rickard was related to a certain coach at SBU who no longer patrols the sidelines!

I'd support NJIT, that's good to hear.

Ok...I can accept Lowell at some level....BUT NJIT I shudder on the athletic side unless they plan on SERIOUSLY upgrading their athletic profile in a $$ sense.

If the dominoes fall for other football schools...I can see UNH, Maine, UA and SBU moving on.

This does not help keep those schools around. Being balls out and creating a football league would help.

Is this some kind of Joke? The America East is no rinky dink operation. How dare you suggest that games be played in a facility only seating 2000 people! If this is what you are bringing to the table then I am forced to just shake my head. What an embarrassment! 2000 people! Give me a break!

Or was it Pickard himself, with the too-obvious moniker to throw everyone off...who currently does roam the sidelines at SBU?

Hmmmmmmm

Makes sense, they need a place, Great West is all but defunct and as a public they fit in with AE. They will need to add some budget when they get here and add a couple more sports but solid new destination city.

Also on the front with many complaining about not adding Bryant, they've got some integrity and are not going to dick over the conference that gave them a shot the moment they get eligible for NCAA bids. Lets go back 4 year ago, NEC was the only one who would accept them, if they tried to bolt to a conference with no football and ask that former conference who stuck it out there for them to be an associate member in that conference...forget it!

Re: UMass Lowell to America East

OMG...I have heard some funny things but "solid new destination city". You need to get out more my friend...Newark is far from a destination city unless you want to see TOTAL RECALL live and in person.

Me saying UMass-Lowell and NJIT to AE were sourced info.

However, I'll throw some speculation out here for a second. If the above two things are true (looks 99% now that UML is definitely true), my guess is that the following happens.

1. AE adds UML, Merrimack, NJIT to bring them to 11
2. SBU and UA go to CAA to bring the AE back to 9
3. CAA has north and south divisions
4. AE eventually gets 10 schools somewhere
