Another AE school in MA that's nearby..but it's in Lowell which is a REAL nice town (aka, it's gross)....that's about it on the excitement meter.

If this is the truth, I'm happier for this reason more than any other tonight.

U Mass Lowell will be a FANTASTIC addition to the AEC with a ton of athletic and media upside.

When is Bryant announcing?

I could go back in look but what do they bring to the table with lacrosse, men's basketball, athletic budget, facilities, and sports need another for an AQ.

Re: UMass Lowell to America East

UMass Lowell is a nice add- I don't want to sound like I'm not supportive because it makes sense. That said, would like to see the league go after Bryant or add someone who's D1-experienced.

Eh.........Not overly excited about this if it's true. Would like to see Bryant or another real DI school.

Re: UMass Lowell to America East

I'd rather see Middlebury College move up from D3.

Joking aside, it seems logical. How does Lowell's academic prowess match up with the rest of the AE?

It's not there academically, but it's getting there. Their chancellor has made a big push to make them a research institution, and he is also the one pushing the D1 move. Overall, I think its a good fit location-wise, academically and athletically in America East.

Fair enough. I'm on board with this.

I thought you said joking aside?

Will be the worst academic school in the AE. This definitely wasn't an academic move.
