I mean just look at some of the bottom schools at the bottom conferences. Patriot League, A-10, and AEC....
I know for a fact some of these "fake d1" coaches have no clue and take moderately talented people and make them even worse.
Hey, don't hate too hard on America East, a lot of that is funding issues not coaching. I do agree though, teams like St. Bonaventure, Hartford, Colgate, Lafayette make me wonder why they are even D1. It's like they're actively trying to make their teams worse. There are good teams there though, SBU, UML, Binghamton, UNH, and others have (had) good athletes and teams, but they don't have the money or reputation to pull athletes like P5 or Ivy schools.
