    Wow, that means I'm as old as the conference my school plays in.

    Not sure quite what to think of that. I guess it could be worse: I could be saying that as a SoCon fan.

    On the whole, I believe the League has held up well. Has received a lot of respect for the philosophy of stressing the student part of student-athlete, but still treating athletics as a serious part of the overall experience.

    I don't know if this truly qualifies... It was the "Colonial" League after all!

    You have done an excellent job and have represented Eastern football greatly. Best of luck in the future to a host of schools trying to do it right.
