"I believe that teams – whatever the sport – when they change conference, they ultimately play themselves to the level of that conference," Kessenich said. "It's kind of like a marriage. After 20 years of marriage, how often do the husband and wife look the same? That being said, you're joining a league with teams like Michigan. We're not sure how they're going to look like in 10 or 15 years although all signs are positive. You're joining a league with Rutgers. Rutgers hasn't had any kind of success, has never been to championship weekend, and has had one quarterfinal appearance. I worry about putting yourself in a league with other teams who aren't championship caliber and ultimately as a program, you become just like them."
