Quinnipiac and Monmouth Moving To MAAC

We have seen the landscape of college athletics change dramatically the last two years. Those profound changes for the most part involved the “big boys” and the large conferences. Well now it has come to the mid majors.

Butler has already joined the Atlantic 10 so this isn’t a first but hometown Siena will be part of the reshuffled MAAC conference next season.

Loyola Maryland the defending champs already announced they were departing for the Patriot league, a strange move indeed. Striking back, the MAAC has announced that Quinnipiac and Monmouth will be jumping ship from their homes to the MAAC.

Both schools have resided in the vaunted Northeast Conference. Right now before conference play has begun Monmouth is 5-6 and Quinnipiac is 3-6. I believe Quinnipiac is better known for the polling on politics and other issues then they are for hoops.

The “new” MAAC conference is now scheduled to have 11 teams so it is a safe assumption I would think that it will be a one division league.

Loyola of Maryland is joining the likes of Bucknell, Lehigh, Army, Navy and a few others. A strange move down I believe.

By the way speaking of Butler jumping from the Horizon to the A-10. Rumors have them leaving that conference to join the “new” Big East, consisting of the seven Catholic schools that bolted the “old” Big East
