The author’s thesis is that we stink at sports because we have a small student body relative to our competition. However our student body size compares favorably to the rest of the Patriot League and to many of the Catholic colleges we play. That being said, we never do well in the Presidents Cup so something is amiss. Nevertheless, I believe the school is on the right athletic track. Pine is doing a fine job. I think our men’s basketball team is in for several great years and Chesney is doing wonders with the football team.Women’s basketball has some great young players and women’s hockey has just moved into Hockey East ( with the men to follow soon I hope). The Luth is a showpiece and is already yielding results in the recruiting battles.
Going D2 would be ludicrous. I am happy with the path we are on and hope that recruits never see this article.
