Very good…the metro whatever it was was garbage…….

The team could't play to its fullest…now we will not only be challenged, but get better exposure as well…

Could this be a sign of a conference shift for the entire department?!?!?

Probably not, but it's good to know that if soccer does well, and we continue to do well in the Belt, we have our foot in another conference already…

Not at all…

All the SBC teams play soccer in different conferences because the conference does not sponsor a championship. For example, FIU plays soccer in CUSA. As another example, I'm pretty sure a bunch of CUSA teams swim in the SBC because the SBC sponsors swimming, but their conference does not.

Maybe for soccer, but not for anything else.  FAU in the MAC would be as bad as when UCF was in the MAC.  Not to mention New Mexico State and Idaho in the Sun Belt.

Re: FAU Soccer team in the MAC

Ok…not much going in our favor so far in men's soccer…2-6 thus far…and we got waxed by Akron friday 7-0…yikes!   :o

Guess we are seeing VERY quickly that the MAC aint no joke for men's soccer.

But here's a question:

What the heck is with the schedule??

4 home games, and 14 road games?

WOW…talk about a tough schedule.

SBC's affiliate members for men's swimming & diving are Evansville, Missouri State, and Southern Illinois (according the SBC website).

The MAC's affiliate members for men's soccer are FAU and Hartwick.

C-USA's affiliate members for men's soccer are FIU, Kentucky, and South Carolina.

I'm so football-centric, it's odd to think of a conference game between FAU & Buffalo or FIU & South Carolina.
