CSAC
https://csacsports.com/news/2019/11/1/mens-basketball-cairn-the-top-pick-in-csac-mbb-preseason-coaches-poll.aspx

2019-2020 Colonial States Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Preseason Coaches’ Poll
1) Cairn University – 61 points (6 first-place votes)
2) Centenary University – 48 points (2 first-place votes)
3) Wilson College – 42 points
4) Rosemont College – 41 points
5) The College of Saint Elizabeth – 35 points
6) Keystone College – 33 points
7) Bryn Athyn College – 15 points
8) Clarks Summit University – 13 points

Wow, that's a brutal league.

I read these boards on a weekly basis. I have always appreciated the love and the passion that the posters on here have displayed for all schools, big and small, and have marveled at how, (mostly) people that support D3 basketball do so in a manner befitting of the ideals of the sport. I also know that coaches don't often post outside of needing games, and, well, I am going to break that trend tonight. While looking through the lists of preseason conference rankings I noticed a small shot at the conference I coach in, the CSAC. I expected to look at the person who took this cheap shot and see a handful of names that I would recognize that fall into the "troll" category around these parts. Instead, I see Pat Coleman's handle, and, frankly, my jaw dropped.

"Let's discuss (sports) in a positive way, sometimes kidding each other with no disrespect." I guess I feel disrespected.

I have admired Pat for that quote for the decade plus that I have visited your website, and taking some time to look through a couple of pages of your recent pots, he has lived up to this ideal. Why then take a shot at the CSAC? Honestly, it's inexcusable. I am going into my 8th year at Rosemont, and while their might not be any Aaron Walton-Moss' in the conference, guy like Malachi Hall, Chris LaBelle and Rahaan Bean are fine examples of what makes D3 hoops great. As coaches, we are all looking to teach the same lessons as guys in the ODAC, UAA or NESCAC, and create in the words of my old boss "a laboratory for life". You qualified your statements a few posts later, presumably to lessen the blow. Please let my statement here be crystal clear- I lost some respect for you tonight, Pat. The student-athletes of the CSAC deserve better from you.

Best of luck to everyone here. Thank you for providing me with a distraction as I sit around figuring out ways to win in this "brutal league". I guess it should be easy.

Coach Hughes's post got me to do a little research and it seems like the Rosemont 100, at Cairn 97 CSAC championship game last year was one of the best games of the season with so much at stake. 13 ties, 19 lead changes, a road W for the chip.

Props to Bob for fouling up 3 with six seconds left and not letting Cairn shoot a three!!

Wow, I'm surprised that NEWMAC ranked Emerson above Babson (all but one guy back, add a high-profile D1 transfer) and Springfield (which has maybe the best player in the country and probably the two best players in the conference, and suffered some tough injury luck last year after making the Final Four the preceding season).  Even more surprised Emerson got four first place votes!  Yes, Emerson had a great run in last year's NEWMAC playoffs, but they were mediocre the entire season leading up to that, flamed out badly in round one of the NCAAs, and graduated a big-time player in Geoffrey Gray (led Emerson in points, assists, rebounds, steals) from a team that was very top-heavy in its talent.
