So, trading Salisbury and Frostburg for Cortland and Morrisville strikes me, competitively, as nearly a wash. Brockport probably fills out the middle of the conference.
So will the E8 and NJAC sit there cannibalizing each other while the LL continues to be a one-team league?
I see it less as cannibalizing as a natural re-alignment into common sense. The geographic swap makes excellent sense, and I think the competition levels are close to a wash. Overall, this is a really good thing for the E8 and a pretty good thing for the NJAC. It does leave the NJAC significantly more exposed should the CAC ever get enough members, but that is a problem for the future.
