In some ways we are a victim of our own academic success and stellar reputation.  Long Island and NYC kids going SUNY now see us as the top academic choice. Of course those kids are likely to head home for the weekend...and some of the academic types might not enjoy watching football in any case (This is an admitted oversimplification.)

At the same time there are enough folks in the surrounding area to give us near capacity crowds v good opponents and homecoming. Just have to keep the style exciting and to keep winning.

Nothing like LaValle stadium on a sunny brisk day with the SBU band blaring,  and good football on the field...and a cold beer in the beergarden to boot!  Grab a few neighbors, hop on the train, grab a pint at the Bench and walk on over to the action.
