I certainly will be a very active participant on this board, but since Catholic is still going strong--and just notched its TENTH consecutive 20 win season, I'm going to wait until the end of the season...

Does anyone know if CUA or GOU will play non-conference games with CAC teams?
Would love to play CUA out of conference! Plus its easier  for me to get to!

Who, me, a "detractor? Not really, but I am bemused by so many venues leaving the MAC for what they anticipate will be greener pastures.

I would be surprised if Catholic doesn't play many of the CAC schools in non-conference games, including Mary Washington.

So am I going to have to hear this every 5th post or so like on the CAC board?

York is trying to play Catholic as a non-confrence opponent.   i know they are trying to keep a semi rivalry that has been building over the last couple of years with the cardinals.

Who decides and how in which region the Landmark(men and women)will be?
Does the MAC Commonwealth lose its pool A by retaining only 5 teams?
Will they move the women's final this year to Mass Mutual instead of Blake?

Yes it will.  In fact, 5 members is not even an official conference.

Whom will they invite to join them?

Ralph:

I've been told that Lycoming is moving to the Commonwealth from the Freedom.
No official word on the new seventh member.

At the same time, who knows just how this will shake out? Or, perhaps, those who do know aren't talking ... yet.  ;)

Nah.  Maybe a few times in the beginning of the year, but until/unless we get to #11, probably not.

Next year, Catholic is going to have (literally) no seniors, and like 2 juniors, so...that's going to be interesting.

Ah... I believe the MAC has a couple of years to fix things before losing the AQ. They will still have it next year. And Warren... I don't think anyone in the MAC (higher-ups) knows what's going on or how to fix it. They have been very SLOW to react to something we have now known for over a year and half.

And the NCAA decides which region. Pat Coleman thinks Atlantic... I think Mid-Atlantic... and I personally think the regions need to be redrawn and conferences moved across the country. That may just be my off season project!

I know I am asking a lot, but can someone assemble a list of the new alignments in the MAC as they stand right now?

Why don't you ask that in the MAC rooms... not the Landmark!

Warren, you have this knack for saying what I'm thinking...

Mr. Know-it-all, instead of being a sarcastic boob, why don't you just tell Coach, unless you don't know tha answer yourself, hence, the Mr. Know-it-all tag must be lifted?
