  • Bridgeport to CACC

    University of Bridgeport is leaving the ECC for the CACC. The UB announcement includes this interesting paragraph.

    UB will join 12 other member schools in the CACC for the 2022-23 campaign, including Bloomfield College, Caldwell University, Chestnut Hill College, Dominican College, Felician University, Georgian Court University, Goldey-Beacom College, Holy Family University, Nyack College, Post University, Thomas Jefferson University and Wilmington University.
    University of the Sciences is not mentioned. We've known about the merger into Saint Joseph's but it had been unclear as to what would happen with Sciences athletics. I have not found any official announcement so maybe today's news is how we learn what will happen.

    The Bridgport announcement including a list of CACC members but NOT UScience is interesting. Wonder if the NCAA stepped in to forbid having two scholarship programs at different campuses or if it is a cost cutting move by St Josephs?

      Nothing I have read about the merger indicates losing athletics at Sciences is a cost cutting move.

        Then the only alternative is that the NCAA said no. Check that, I guess the reason could be St Joseph's just saying, we don't want to.

          The US DEVILS MBB are having a hell of an awful 2-6 season thus far so my guess is some sort of typo.

            Not saying it's not a typo (although I don't think it is), but even if it is, I doubt it has anything to do with their record!

              Only meant that their MBB team seems to be, for the time being, alive and kinda kicking. Sorry.

                We now have a statement from Sciences.

                Consistent with NCAA regulations, USciences has formally notified the NCAA that its 12 intercollegiate teams will be discontinued effective May 31, 2022.

                  So, I guess NOT a typo.

                  Interesting that UScience (St Josephs) is of the opinion that NCAA Regulations do not permit them to have two separate intercollegiate athletic programs at two different campuses.

                    With USciences dropping sports as part of its merger with St Joe's, that leaves 13 members of the CACC. I wonder how many more ECC (or even NE-10) schools will be changing leagues in the next year or two.
