Stop. Then play FDU , Wagner or Monmouth and don’t pay their appearance fee with our tax $$. They are from Massachusetts.
Fine. Then it's no different than us playing Florida A&M or Prairie View A&M. They are paying the appearance fee no matter which of the NEC or MAAC or low-major teams they play.
The only thing that matters is how they never travel to a November tournament and instead play three tomato cans at the RAC instead.
Not that it matters and I may not recall correctly but I believe they were scheduled to play in a real exempt tournament last year before everything went sideways.
Regardless now that they look to be taking a step back, I fully expect this to be the highlight of their home OOC.
