true frank but let me ask you this.  What if a guy like maurice clarett transfered to trinity after that whole draft debacle.  What would people be saying then, or what should people be saying then.  (and for the record, I have no idea what clarettes academic credentials are, Im assuming that is around what 95% of d1 football scholarship players is)

Frank, being a football guy I would agree with you about Trinity.  I went to Ithaca college for a chance to play for a national championship.  On the other hand, Trinity as a school needs to be associated with the nescac schools.  If the nescac schools threatened to throw trinity out of the leage because of rule violations or even for the reasons that the majority of trinity athletes couldnt get into to other nescac schools and the nescac thought that some reputation was being challanged,  you would see trinity administration drop football for a few years before they would leave the nescac.

I might not be able to make the IC-sjf game next weekend, but I will be at the mt ida/sjf game today in boston if it doesnt rain.  I plan on making a few bomber games this year though.

footballfan, my point was that NEFC schools with the exception of MIT arent at the same par academically as the schools you mention, (union, hobart or any nescac school)  The kid in highschool that is looking seriously at schools like   hobart, union or the nescac schools is not going to look at nefc schools in the same light.

Union, Hobart, LL schools and nescac schools are the best college in the country in all areas, academics and athletics. They are on the top of the first tier schools. The nefc schools are fourth tier schools, therefore the two groups dont have to compete with the same student athletes for the most part.

And although I would love to say that massachusetts highschool football is on par with nj or even ct, it just isnt true.  NJ has the best highschool football in the country regardless of size.

There are a few problems that I see the nefc as a whole has.

1)  Such a big league only leaves a few non-conference games for nefc teams.

2) A large d2 New England Conference (NE-10) with below average d2 football nationally takes away talent from many NEFC teams. 

3) no real full time coaching staffs at NEFC schools.

4) The NEFC schools themselves dont have a great deal to offer in terms of facilities, academics or programs as a whole.  D3 NY State schools seem to put a lot more money into their academics, schools and athletic facilities than MA schools.......On the other hand, the nefc schools also dont have to compete with nescac, LL or empire 8 schools either.

5) MA highschool football talent isnt as great at CT, NJ or even NY.

I guess I dont mean recently there dan.  Over the last 15 years I guess I should have said. 

the sconn game might have been different if it was played at the end of the year I dont think they were better than rowan.  (not to say rowan was 28 points better though either)

cortland in 2001 might be an example of a team they should have beaten by 28.

Rowan is always good for one big letdown every year.  It seems like one of their losses every year is to a team that they should beat by 28, and the games that you might think will be close, Rowan puts up 50 on them

And Cortland is the other way around the years they are crappy.  They usually end up upsetting a higher ranked team, including Ithaca.

Yea Jeff, the framingham guys do have a better feel for the system this year, and especially with a good qb they might win another game or two unlike the last few years when they were slow, crappy and without a qb.

now, of course they would lose by 60 to any upstate team but thats not the point here.

I cant really say for sure but Im sure tradition might be the major reason.

true frank, but I would also say that most nescac coaches like the league the way it is.
