The league is much stronger in mens soccer, baseball and mens golf than it is in football and mens b'ball. This is good for the league. I am sure Grassie helped with this as the WVU coach is a former Grassie assistant.
The Gazette-Mail article on this is pulled directly from BlueGoldNews.com, who surprisingly enough, managed to go 1,000 words without mentioning that the current NCAA Division I champion is from C-USA, or who that champion is.
They did mention C-USA placed three teams in the NCAA tournament this year, so that was nice.
