Agreed. That said, the cost of living may be lower but so is the quality of life IMHO. Buffalo metro has taken great strides and has Toronto nearby, but LI and NYC have climate, cultural and proxy advantages.

STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- Former ESPN beat reporter Adam Rubin has been tapped as the new Associate Director of Athletics for Strategic Communications, the department of athletics announced.  In his role as Associate AD, he will be responsible for the development, implementation and execution of the department's strategic communication initiatives. Rubin comes to Stony Brook after nearly three years in a similar role at the New York Institute of Technology.
 
During his tenure at New York Tech, Rubin made a dramatic impact on the coverage of the athletic program.  He more than doubled the social media and website traffic each year while unveiling several initiatives that landed the program national media attention.
 
While with ESPN, Rubin built the largest social media following of any team-specific MLB reporter.  In that role, he made frequent appearances on "SportsCenter" and hosted a baseball show on ESPN 98.7 radio in New York. He also has worked for the New York Daily News and Birmingham (Ala.) News and is an active voter for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.

He is a 1995 graduate of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor's degree in economics and concentration in marketing. He originally is from Bellmore, Long Island, and attended Mepham High School.

Excellent hire. Should increase the exposure of SBU and SBU sports which we desperately need. It's criminal that a university as good as SBU is largely known outside of the Northeast due to our low profile athletics. This helps.

well stated- it answers the question why do universities spend so many millions on what some perceive as useless athletic contests.
