Re: 2012-2020: Future of Stony Brook Football

I didn't wanna say it, but that's the perception I get also. It might take 10-15-20 or even 30 years but we will eventually end up in something like the Big East or ACC. That's if we follow the path of universities like Uconn. Consider UConn 20 years ago. They were A10 football members and quickly rose to the BCS by means of the Big East. Now they enjoy 40,000 attendance levels, something no one would've thought back then. UConn is now outnumbering Boston College in terms of fans, while BC has been the traditional BCS team of New England. That jump was fast, and its makes me think that SBU is on the same path.

I don't want to sound like I'm getting carried away, but I'm sure back in 1995 no one expected Stony Brook to have a fully funded Division I-AA football program with an 8k seat stadium and competing for Conference championships and potentially for FCS championship this upcoming season. Who ever said that back then would've been considered crazy or something. Get what I mean? We are growing extremely fast, its no joke.

Add to that the constant donations that we are getting from alumni, we're an attractive school, no way you can deny that...
