  1. Can we include the NJAC in this round up of local conferences? You have schools in the tri-state area that should be mentioned including Rutgers-Camden, Stockton, and Rowan. Rutgers – Camden is nationally ranked and currently off to a 5-0 start.

    Thanks

    • Bill- I can definitely do that. I’ll include Rutgers-Camden, Stockton and Rowan. Are there other teams you would like to see from the NJAC?
