Conference and Athletics / Re: Conference Realignment Rumors
« Last post by VA_Seawolf on January 22, 2019, 10:12:55 pm »
The biggest obstacle in football is attendance and it's not going to improve. We have now played 6 years of CAA football hosting more familiar names than the unknown Big South teams. But our average attendance has been constantly less 8k. Only time we break the 10k attendance is homecoming games. 6 years ago when we moved our football to CAA, I expected a steady rise in attendance. That has not happened. Even if we go to FCS quarterfinal or semifinals, I don't think its gonna change. Can't blame Priore for college football apathy on Long Island. Hofstra was averaging less than 5k before shutting their football. I am getting more and more pessimistic about college football on Long Island. I don't think "If you build it, they will come" applies here. Am I wrong?

Wrong!!! Win Playoff games and the fans will come. The Media will be jumping on top of each other to write articles on the success of this school. Win the FCS Championship game and SB can be another JMU. We just have to win the big games and the fans will follow.

There's also the whole student attendance issue due to the administration making stupid decisions. There's no good reason for the student section to be empty playing JMU and Villanova, when it was packed playing Gardner Webb, Presbyterian, and VMI. Fix that issue and we're probably looking at close to 10k at conference games.

South Carolina beats ranked Auburn!

That game is the gift that keeps on giving!! Had Rhode Island been their usual ranked/competitive self, and we didn't lose the Hofstra game, I'd almost say we have an at-large worthy resume. Carolina will be ranked eventually if they keep this up.

That makes so much sense. Didn’t think about cold. Just look at the list below. Only like 2-3 cold weather schools in top 25!

2012 was an aberration; the stars aligned with that team. The Big problem is that big time players don’t play in the Northeast; they gravitate to the south and west. Here on Long Island you’re playing more than 1/2 your season in the freezing cold. Who in their right mind, with exceptional talent, would sign up for that?  Only kids that really want to stay home. Don’t blame Senk; the cards are stacked against him when it comes to recruitment.

A must win!  Losing this game, going into the biggest game of the year, is not an option. SBU by 12.

Otchere is turning into a nice player...learning to stay out of foul trouble. Very pleased with Boals recruiting so far.
