The beer garden in general was a good idea and I think it will add to the game experience for many fans.

The decision to have an awkward  separation within the garden between season ticket holders and individual ticket holders is a peculiar one and I'd suggest one unseparated beer garden w/picnic benches would make much more sense. Many times those with season tickets are accompanied to the game by those who have purchased individual tickets and vice versa. Plus it just looks strange (I was on both sides last week v Richmond). I realize they are still working out the kinks in what is otherwise a very good idea.

One thing we all forget is that Hofstra was in the CAA for a long time and their attendance was actually worse than SBU's which eventually made the school give up football,

The one thing that we have is we have a great venue located in a really nice area of Long Island. I just believe until the students come out on a regular basis attendance will stay in the 4,000 range.

Also when President Kenney was here she loved football president Stanley is not like her

Its not season ticket holders vs. non-season ticket holders...one is the beer garden, the other is the touchdown club (which is additional to just being a season ticket holder)...I believe everything is free in the touchdown club, hence the separation...that is an idea though, that there should be some way to flow between the 2, but I am sure they'd want to ensure that the tables and games over there were left available for touchdown club members. The touchdown club also has better sightlines with the scoreboard not being right in front of them. However, I have no problem with those that join the touchdown club being treated better, as they should be.

What makes you think Stanley doesn't like football? How he feels about the game personally I'm not entirely sure about, but based on his actions thus far, and his comments about FBS in the future, I have no reason to believe Stanley is anything less than 110% behind SBU football and athletics in general. I've heard JMU fans rip their president for wanting to stay in the FCS, not take the Sun Belt invite, etc. Other schools respect our commitment to athletics and willingness to spend money on our programs.

Ahhh, that makes sense. I just popped up to the beer garden buy a beer at halftime and jumped to the wrong conclusion. Although more expensive, it was a lot quicker than a trip to the car...and I got to see the band.

Good for you Wolffan. If you can tolerate drinking Bluepoint beer, then go for it..

This is going to be a tough game for SB. Oddsmaker has V winning. Not a total surprise considering V beat Temple and SB got smoked by Temple and AF. With that said. This is a home game and SB has the backing of the home crowd. If Carbone van just step up his game a little more and his passing game breaks 200 yards for the game, we got a chance.

I think the TD Club has free food too, so if you don't have the time to consistently set up a tailgate, its not a bad deal...I think $200 for the year (but thats only you, guests have to pay $50/game)...if I am right and food and drinks are free, thats not bad if you grab a bite and have a couple beers each game

Loved the new additions. The atmosphere has really improved. The whole area behind the new seats was hopping, really adds a new dinamic when watching the game

attendance says https://stonybrookathletics.com/boxscore.aspx?id=8260&path=football


7720

Yeah... Stony Brook is definitely being more honest about reporting. In the past they would've easily said there was 8-9k people there.

Good crowd!!!
