when i consider teams around here that should drop to 8-man, i see them in the 2nd lowest tier. not in immediate danger but a few rough years could put them on par with SCC, Cedarville, Bradford, and Dayton Jefferson.Springfield CC Should definitely. Has things at Triad really got that bad? They're a D6 school.
always thought Triad should be looking into the NWCC until Riverside and Lehman left.Around here with numbers being the way they are a few rough years could put any school with an enrollment on the D6/D7 borderline or lower in danger of dropping to 8 man or of having an extremely tedious rebuild to being competitive.
Triad seems to always be boom or bust competitively, and being in a prolonged bust cycle is probably becoming more difficult to bounce back from being in the much tougher division of their league.
