That IS awesome! Congrats and way to make a splash in the A-10.

I haven't been following college soccer too closely but does anyone know how the A-10 is comparatively to the CAA in this sport? I remember hearing briefly about it a while back but can't remember. Is it a step up or pretty even?
 

GMUgemini

Hall of Famer
Fairly on par, but slightly below at this point. SLU had a bit of a disappointing season overall and found themselves left out. They are usually nationally competitive in soccer.

VCU and GMU will continue to be strong just by virtue of being in a fairly soccer mad region of the country.

Look at the following recent CAA teams in the NCAA tournament this season:

W&M, Drexel, Delaware, GMU, ODU, VCU. That's half the old conference right there.
