05, you're a good man, but with all due respect, wake up and realize the downward spiral this league has been in the last 6 to 8 years.
It wasn't that long ago that the MAAC was a traditional 12-18 rated conference. The AE and especially the NEC were no where near the MAAC in terms of strength.
Now many of the AE teams are stronger than the MAACs and MAAC programs remain content competing for NEC and MEAC recruits.
While others have leaped forward, he's taken the conference backward.
Now I know he's a product of the school Presidents, but it's his job to come up with bold solutions and rally the troops to support these moves.
He's a non performer who best years are behind him. The MAAC needs a change at the top.
I am not defending Ensor, please don’t get me wrong. I am just saying that all of the conference’s problems cannot be blamed on him. He made some aggressive bets that were ahead of his time — ESPN streaming deal, Disney roundtable, etc — clearly some of these backfired, but at least he went out and was willing to try. Ensor is not a great commissioner by any means, but the league’s problems are just as much on the schools and a function of the changing times in the NCAA as they are on him.
For what it’s worth, in my opinion any time an organization, association, team or whatever entity you wish to describe needs a change, especially an improvement to the results they are getting, a change at the top is in order. I would argue that a new, enthusiastic, upward mobile leader could change the culture of the MAAC. Influencing school Presidents, encouraging greater competition by member schools, better media relationships, etc. would be some of his objectives. I just think the MAAC is stale at this time.
