At Best of luck to new ECU Lacrosse --- and welcome to all when AAC adds sport in 2019
Not very often you get to say best wishes to a brand new program. But the Pirates' Lacrosse team has their first ever game on Saturday.

I plan on being much more informed one year from now, but confess to not fully knowing the strength of Cincinnati, Connecticut, and Temple in the sport. Plus affiliates Florida and Vanderbilt.

Any of our Florida schools thinking about starting teams?

I don't really know of any other schools located in fertile recruiting grounds. I know it's mainly big out east and uer Midwest. Looks like a power House league though. Very similar to AAC baseball.

Florida won the Big East the last three seasons (ie since they joined). They should continue to be the favorite in the AAC.

Cincinnati's women's lacrosse team is one of the worst organized athletics teams I've ever witnessed.

Lacrosse tends to skew toward a higher-income population im the northeast. People might laugh, but with their academic rankings Tulane could conceivably start up a program and pull a bunch of kids out of real high-end eastern prep schools that can afford to pay their way just by promising them a spot on the team.

Ok, I'll go ahead and say it. I don't understand this. That's kind of a general statement, but specifically...

If we're in the same conference as Cindy, UConn, Temple, Florida, and Vandy, why are only two of them on the schedule?

ECU added WLAX for this year, but the AAC doesn't split from the Big East until next season. ECU is Independent this year.

The link just had the schedule, nothing about conference realignment. From the previous posts, it just looked like Florida and Vandy were joining a pre-existing AAC.
