JMU is also in an area that has a lot of talent that they can recruit from.

The 2021 New York HS Football Class lost over 40 of their Top Players to other states (especially to the NJ Catholic Schools) and once a player leaves the state they get more exposure that leads to more opportunities so schools like SBU are at a disadvantage when it comes to home grown talent. As an example the top 8th grade QB in the Country is from Cold Spring Harbor and he will attend IMG Academy as a 9th grader and with the success of the Freeport players other LI kids are thinking of doing the same.

Who is the QB from Cold Spring Harbor?

He's 6-5, in eighth grade. Wow. Took me till my sophomore year of high school to crack 6' and only grew another inch after. Kids got some stellar genes.

Do you think if SB has the opportunity to go FBS would some of these players stay home and play for SB??

They would consider it if we were FBS, but I think what would actually get them to come here and stay is if we went FBS, AND fixed all of the anti-social cultural issues this campus has. That's the biggest hurdle to recruiting I think. Sure as an FBS school we'd get considerably better talent, but consider that those kids could also consider attending Buffalo or an AAC school where they'd likely have a better social experience. Go FBS, improve the culture, and get us into a decent conference? Now you've got something brewing on LI.

1000% right
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.
