The CAA, the poor man's ACC, also has its tournament this week, featuring W&M, VCU, Delaware, and Hofstra. Soccer America recently reported that several CAA sides are plausible candidates for at-large NCAA bids, including ODU, which didn't even get into the conference tournament:

Interesting article on NCAA attendance trends:

For some reason, the article focuses exclusively on men's programs. One wonders whether the reporter is aware of what is going on with women's programs at Portland, Texas A&M, UConn, etc.

OT: To judge from Goff's Twitter page, it appears that the LAG has a following at the Food Network.
