Agree with all of this - Geneseo is arguably the most well-rounded SUNYAC school in the conference. Along with academics, they're dominant in so many sports
- Women's Tennis has won like a ridiculous amount of titles in the last decade
- XC programs for both teams are almost always nationally ranked
- Dominant at Swim and Dive if i recall too
- Women's Soccer has been elite recently
- Men's hockey obviously
- Basketball hasn't really won anything but has been competitive
- Women's Basketball is arguably the best in the conference over the past handful of years
- Softball is a great program too
All of this is just off memory from working at Oswego Ath Comm department and remember them being at the top in nearly everything. While Cortland is historically in certain sports like baseball/lacrosse, they also are really poor at some sports. I'd argue Geneseo is the overall the best athletic department in the conference.
I support tuition payments past...
I know funding, facilities, and all that has been mentioned has a lot to do with a programs success. I have been following AICís rise at the D1 Level very closely over the last three years and I just donít understand how if a great new head coach comes in and can turn things around at a D2 school that is smaller both campus and student body wise than all the schools in the SUNYAC why a school with actual on campus facilities like Cortland, Potsdam, and Morrisville have canít turn things around. Yes, AIC has scholarships to toss around but their budget is similar to that of high end D3 programs and they just beat the #1 team in the country in the NCAAís. I feel like it comes down to a coach just overall hustling and being able to recruit the right type of players for their program. At the end of the day, players want to play for a coach they respect and want to feel valued. Is it the coaches that arenít drawing the right kids? There HAS to be a reason for perpetual basement dwelling in this league. The same can be said for all the other leagues as well, Iím just a New Yorker so I chose to talk about SUNYAC. Finally, let CANTON in! They offer a ton of 4 year programs. They have a storied history in the NJCAA. They have the facilities and a great young coach who gets his players to play. Let them in!
And Geneseo has won it's 5th consecutive Commissioner's Cup
Can SUNYAC posters give the reasons Canton, a SUNY school has not been in the D3 hockey league. In addition Canton has a good D3 team.
