Just a question without somewhere else to ask, but is there any way to get an ECFC thread started?

I was going to ask the same question a couple of weeks ago....I'm sure Pat will set it up since you have requested it....

I know this has been hashed out on other boards, but does this conference have what is needed to have an AQ in a few years?

Husson is a team on the rise and the conference does have some wins against mediocre E8 teams and top NEFC teams... In my mind they will be on par with the NEFC when the conference recieves their AQ.

In fact I believe the conference has the distinct advantage over the NEFC in the fact that they do not have as many teams in conference and geographically they will be able to reach out and play a tougher non conference schedule.

One huge problem does come up in recruiting because many of these teams are going to be competing with NEFC teams with recruits which could water down the east region more then it already is.

Teams like Plymouth are going to run into trouble now competing for recruits against the likes of Husson and Norwich and Castelton which can use the same pitch Plymouth used to become relevant again: Early Playing Time and Easier Road to the Playoffs.

Husson should have a pretty solid team this year right? At least in comparison to the NEFC and some lower epchilan E8, LL, and NJAC teams. They played SJF well and beat Springfield last year dlippiel thinks.

that is correct ... I like Husson this year and think they have a chance to run the table in the conference... if that does happen do they have  a chance at an at large Pool C Bid?

It would be Pool B, but I would think yes, if they run the table they would have a shot. But they would need to win all of their games, not just the conference games. There's just not much there.

Yes, 'gro.

The ECFC is on track to take a bid from Pool B and move into the group of Pool A conferences in 2011.
