Yet another league that can't figure out what acronyms are already taken. NEnAC for these guys.

We don't get to have an informal naming contest for this one like we did with the NAsCon?  (By the way, I'm not letting that acronym die; I love it!)

and thats why these schools all combined. Their best chance toget into the NCAA's.  These schools are competitive with each other.  Thats all the schools care about. They don't care what other leagues think.  Just happy that in 09-10 or 10-11 they will have their own AQ.

10-11, hat is assuming they can maintain seven men's basketball programs.

What happens if the other NEAC folds, can this conference take over the acronym or do they always remain the NEnAC? 



...no, I couldn't come up with something better.  I yield.

i think the NEnAC will be fine with 7 teams.  I think you might some other schools join this league now that it is official announced.  I could see teams like Anna Maria, Regis and Rivier looking to the NEnAC very seriouslly now.

I believe it was NAthCon and I do occasionally use that. I usually use it on the board when someone tries to call it the NAC.

Elms should consider playing. They'll have to win probably 20 games against that weak schedule to get a Pool B bid.

The rankings say it all on there, though.

Congratulations to the Mitchell Pequots on their move to Year 3 of provisional status.  Games versus Mitchell count towards post-season consideration.

The Pequots (named for the indigenous tribe) should be full members in 2009-10.

Now Mitchell games are just a joke, not just a charity.
