I would question if a move to the MAAC really saves them that much money.La Salle will survive as a university, but given some of its significant overhead in a pretty saturated market, it won’t surprise me if a step down in athletic investment is around the corner (5ish years). Regardless of the message board banter to the contrary, I’ve repeatedly heard a return to (not of) the MAAC is a very real possibility.

That said, when money is tight, any savings can feel like a lot.
