As it turns out, the MAAC does not sponsor three sports in which the Hawks compete: women's field hockey, women's bowling, and football, which meant that Monmouth president Paul G. Gaffney II needed to apply back to the NEC to become an associate member in all three sports to remain.
It didn't seem impossible that Monmouth would remain in the league in these three sports.
But today, Monmouth got their reply from NEC commissioner Noreen Morris, returning the will of the NEC presidents: yes to field hockey, and no bowling and football.
With Monmouth's "Plan A" going by the wayside, the Hawks are now certainly looking at their "Plan B"'s - one of which could very well be the Patriot League.

The news trickles out slowly, from a variety of sources, and finally ends with the official announcement from the schools of the incoming football recruit class.
But with a little work (and a lot of help), it's possible to get a list together of verbal commits to the individual Patriot League schools.
Below the flip, get a sneak peek of Holy Cross's class of 2017, including links to some highlights, and also embedded video clips - and come back to this page often, as I'm going to be updating it frequently over the next few weeks.

In past years, I have posted one humongous posting of all the Patriot League teams whom I've confirmed are headed to Patriot League schools.
This year, though, I've decided to break out my posted commitments by school.
Below the flip, get a sneak peek of Forhdam's class of 2017 - and come back to this page often, as I'm going to be updating it frequently over the next few weeks.
