Re: D1 vs. D2
I disagree with all these calls for Neumann to move up to Division 1. I feel like the size of the school would prevent them from potentially being able to compete at the level that they are. Sure they will get new guys on the team, but it is possible that a year or two could go by without new talent, and that would cripple them in terms of competing in Division 1.
Attending a school twice the size of Neumann, we face the same thing. We had two guys join the club my freshman year, six the next, NONE the next, and two this year. If there aren't new kids coming into the program, which the size of the school could prevent from happening, there is a downward spiral once the bigger class leaves the program.
Perhaps instead of calling them out for not moving up, people should be congratulating Neumann on their national championship. They had an unbelievable season and played fantastic in the tournament.
Let's not take that away from them.
