Success in 2010 for the Golden Griffins of Canisius College depends on how their young pitching staff performs in MAAC games. They will face some very good non-conference teams (Florida, Georgia Tech, DePaul and others); this may toughen them up for conference play. If the Griffs qualify for the MAAC Tournament, they will be the host team and will be difficult to beat. But this season may be one of growing pains.
