The move is good, but I question why it was made. We didn't need to add anyone.

Plain and simple.  NJIT tried to get into AE before and was rejected.  It makes much more sense for them than traveling to FL for games.  For AE, it's economics and it's insurance against defections (namely, SBU and UVM) and the possible demise of the league.  Of course, with sports and budgets up in the air, I don't think these defections will happen for awhile, at least in the case of SBU.

all makes sense.  while jersey tech is a fine school, not sure this really adds flair, but does give us another local rival to compete with.

Also gives another game a year that is fairly close to home.  Ive never been to Maine, New Hampshire and UMBC only once.  Hartford and NJIT are games you can regularly get to.

NJIT isn’t as shitty academically as I thought they were. At 11,000 they’re still a small school, but our 27,000 just dwarfs everyone else.

I don’t know what the procedure to leave conferences is like, but I hope that Shawn is doing the hard work behind the scenes.

Per Jeff Borzello, Chef is now headed to Delaware rather than Southern NH.

Rather strange, no?  Delaware was a stronger team than we were last season.  Unless they graduated/lost a bunch of players, Chef will be a bench player at best.  He's probably kicking himself that he led the charge leaving SBU.

You never know. New coach. New players. New atmosphere. Ochefu has the strength and size to be a really good mid-major BB player. He just didn't have the confidence and to make that turn.

I wont disagree with you. He had an exceptionally great attitude, and with regular reps, he may have developed into something.

If in fact, Fall Sports are actually going to be played in the Spring, I would think that this is going to overwhelm athletics departments.   Very tough task.

Covid will still be around in the spring. Best to just cancel fall sports all together. It'll suck, but it is what it is.
