I don't see the relevant aspect of it other than Glen Dubin. I hope he makes another donation soon, perhaps an expansion of LaValle Stadium to 15k seats. LOL

Good read...

I was a little worried about atmosphere comparing to pritchard.. but this excerpt give me hope that we will carry the amazing pritchard atmosphere to the bigger area:

The new arena will feature a bowl shaped style that is more typical of other facilities of its kind than the old arena, and permanent seating, something new for Stony Brook’s indoor arenas. Some of the seating will be movable, creating extra space for practice courts when the stands are pulled in, but still allowing for fans to be close to the game during the season.

“If you’ve been to a game at Pritchard, everyone’s on top of the action,” Larsen explained. “It’s a loud, great environment. So we’re hoping to replicate that down here by having the fans a lot closer to the action.”

Stony Brook University and Hauppauge-based Island Federal Credit Union (“Island”) today announced a 10-year, $7 million corporate advertising sponsorship agreement that reaches across multiple areas of the University community including athletics, arts, academics, medicine, the Veteran’s Home and alumni relations.

The agreement, facilitated under the auspices of the Faculty Student Association (FSA), a 501(c)(3) organization, consists of a long-term arrangement that includes two retail banking branch sites and ATMs at various locations on campus; title sponsorship for the newly renovated 4,000-seat Stony Brook Arena; title sponsorship for the 20-year old Stony Brook Film Festival; partnership in banking education through the Stony Brook University College of Business; support for Stony Brook Medicine programs including the new Stony Brook Children’s Hospital and the Long Island State Veterans Home; and, a commitment to support and provide benefits to Stony Brook University alumni.

Some of the benefits to the University community provided by Island as part of the agreement include:
A robust and an elevated level of banking services available to all Stony Brook University community members;
Financial products designed and marketed specifically to the Stony Brook University community and its alumni;
Mutual name recognition and branding that will enhance the value of both brands;
Island Federal Credit Union investment in an “employee pipeline” – a formal internship program and placement relationship providing undergraduates with learning and recruitment opportunities;
Direct consumer input to Island Federal through a Student Advisory Board which will provide product and relationship insights to Island Federal executives; and,
New and exciting academic partnerships that can strengthen the Long Island banking sector through education and research.

from SBUGold in the football thread: http://seawolvesnation.kinja.com/new-york-budget-includes-25k-for-la-valle-upgrades-1694997187?rev=1427898670283

New York Budget Includes $25K For La Valle Upgrades

"...for the purposes of a stadium expansion and "stadium improvement and locker room facilities."

...they are on top of other allocations that have been set aside for La Valle Stadium in previous years' budgets. A stadium expansion to boost official capacity up to 10,000 has been in the works for years, but so far any improvements have been incremental.

The budget also earmarks more than $12,000 for the new Stony Brook Arena, which just opened last fall.

my thoughts:

-all this assumes we can get the resources, but the plan looks great.

-everyone is thinking the same thing, can we fill it.

-one of the things I love about LaValle is that you can sit in the lower bowl and see the trees and hills and other parts of campus.  gives it a nice college feel.  obviously this is more important to have the bigger stadium, but I will miss that aspect.

-with new dorms going up just east of the stadium (and just west of the stadium in the next few years) there will hopefully be more students in proximity that will attend.

-a specified area for tailgating is a great idea.  and so easy to implement.  to me this sounds like the administration finally got on board with the fact that tailgating brings students and fans, and while there are certainly safety issues, find a way to get it done.

-fieldhouse looks great; note that it looks like its planned to go directly north of LaValle, meaning the path to the train station has to be moved (?).  https://www.google.com/maps/place/Kenneth+P.Lavalle+Stadium/@40.9188164,-73.1241937,544m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x89e83f24c6bc84e3:0x160bb4dcebd399ec

-with greater capacity, they obviously need to plan for traffic; sitting on nicholls road waiting to make a left is a quick way to turn fans off.  parking too.

Agree with everything Chairman. $100 million in 5 years seems VERY ambitious. I have to think the only way that's possible is if Heilbron gets James Simons on board, and Simons doens't strike me as the college athletics kind of guy. Either way I like that they put their intentions out there. I think its nice to show recruits where we want the program to go.
