I don't think people realize just how hard it is to "play at the next level", even with the right contacts.  Remember Lucas Terci for Montclair State - All-American and 2016 Offensive POY?  He finished his career with 63 goals and 40 assists and couldn't make the grade at RedBull II (who call Montclair State home).  Was offered a trial with Cosmos that went nowhere and eventually ended up at FC Motown in NPSL for a short stint.  Not on roster now so I have no idea what's happened since to a former D3 stand-out talent.

What I found most interesting is that West is making more in this new league than USL was willing to pay.

Seems like OWU will have a bucket full of alumni to choose from when Martin finally retires, which you would think has to be soon. Not many coaches are active in their 70s.

D3 coach I spoke with last week said he's just about done with the '20 kids and will start looking at '21 kids after the fall season.

Igo wasn't just All-NE, but was an All-American.  That's a huge pick-up, alhough I don't see him listed in the Endicott recruiting class:

The Gulls will also bring in two transfer student-athletes in Connor Ross (Atkinson, N.H./Clark University) and Kobe Barnes (Hartford, Conn./Newbury College).

I'd keep a close eye on Springfield.  Crabill is an excellent coach. Last year they could have easily gone 18-2 instead of 14-5-1.

You do know that's based on last year's final poll

Yankee Stadium is supposedly 110x70 - league minimum, but I recall reading an article about a visiting coach who walked it off and it was something like 106x68. In fact, I don't think the press are allowed on the field anymore for this very reason.

I'll kick this off by going out on a limb and saying Messiah will be strong this year.

I'm hearing AJ Marcucci was looking to transfer from Conn College. Anyone know anything about that? That would be a huge loss.

I have been told there is another school who is making significant moves to become a Tier 1 institution (and they are located in a major metropolitan area), but realistically (IMO) there needs to be two institutions available before the UAA would think about expanding.

The CAC was already losing AQ status when PSU-Harrisburg and Frostburg announced they were leaving after this year.  With York bolting, that leaves 5 schools. I'm most interested to see what happens to CNU and UMW, both traditionally very good programs.  Also curious to see if this shakes up the MAC, with some teams moving from the Commonwealth into the Freedom.

Can someone educate me on the backstory? I see they're routinely smoking everyone in football, but what's different about the school compared to their league peers, and how have they changed in the last 20 years? I'm not familiar with the conference at all, and as someone pointed out, there are plenty of other conferences with outliers. For example, I'm not sure what Stevens has in common with future MAC-Freedom conference mates Delaware Valley or FDU-Florham.

He had earlier been listed as an Emory commit but evidently something changed, I don't know what and won't speculate

Oh, please speculate.  It would be a nice off-season discussion for the board  ;D

FDU Florham hired the head coach from Centenary (N.J.)

That's a good hire.  FDU has been an also-ran for many years and O'Connor did a nice job at Centenary which is a tough school to recruit to.  Interesting that he's only coaching though as he was also the Centenary AD.
