by way of rankings... not that this stuff even really matters, especially this early: http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/fcs/fcs-coaches-poll

a measly three votes! 

at least STATS gave us 35!

Well, Towson got 13 votes.  So, I guess that means we have a chance to move closer to the actual list this week.

The polls are dumb as hell this year. Teams barely moved around at all and I'd wager most of the voters don't even watch FCS games. New Hampshire and North Dakota both got thumped and barely moved. Idaho State beat FBS Nevada and barely moved. They're just dumb this year. Take care of business and we'll move up. The only ranking that matters comes the third weekend of November (or somewhere around there).

True. Look how UA got snubbed out of the playoffs last year, and even with beating UB and earning 7 wins!

in terms of SoS, it's good that right now:

#1 JMU
#6 Richmond
#8 Nova
#16 UNH

20 votes W&M
13 votes Towson
2 votes UA


the STATS poll is similar but also has Maine getting 20 votes, Delaware getting 7.

Just tuning in now at the half. Stadium looks empty despite Towson being a solid opponent and the wealthy relatively favorable.

Just got home and it was empty tonight  why I don't know. CAA game , great weather and  I guess we had 5k  maybe .   Anyway tough win but a win non the less . Towson played well and had a  few chances to pull ahead.

Just go back to the Bx from the game. great day for football but weak attendance as others pointed out. But we got a W. 2-0 in the CAA, 3-1 overall. Not the most exciting game. But I'll take it

Albany with a big win over Nova tonight

I think it's time to come to terms with attendance. We may never get the attendance we desire... This Long Island market sucks

It is what it is. Go Seawolves

Here are the home opener attendances for some of the local schools:
Fordham - 3,029
Columbia - 4,101
Monmouth - 3,898
St. John's- 0*
Hofstra - 0*
   I think Stony Brook football (AD, athletics staff, coaches, and players) do a horrible job in promoting their team
This athletic department tends to rest on their laurels and just thinks the students and community will come rushing to their event.  The football group could learn a lot on how the Wlax coach promotes his team through social media.

Some schools had football games at 6:00 last night. That really hurts the fan base. Thats why I didnt make the game and about a dozen other SB ticket holders, I personally know couldnt make the game neither..

Hey Hammer,
        I'm looking to purchase 14-20 tickets for the Delaware game - any advice?
