Re: Savannah State joining MEAC

They won't play a MEAC schedule until 2011. It may not help their travel expenses because now they'll have to play FCS schools up the eastern seaboard instead of D-II schools in Georgia. But at least they may get more home games. Yeah I just saw this thread...http://www.championshipsubdivision.com/...

Re: Savannah State joining MEAC

I'm happy for Savannah State...hopefully being in a conference and having something to play for will help their recruiting and turn the program around. Also this must be great for their travel expenses...especially in basketball...but how does playing in the MEAC and playing a MEAC conference schedu...

Re: GaSt Signing Day

Do the GSU folks know how many of the high school kids signed for the first two classes are partial scholarships? Weren't there around 28 high school signees last year? There must be quite a few partials, or GSU may run into the problem CCU did with overloading their scholarships early on, and seei...

Re: ODU Drops Georgetown and adds Hampton to the 2010 Schedule

In the meantime, enjoy a VERY rare view of Foreman Field: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4040/4318032486_d173c939ab.jpg How big is your athletic budget that you can afford to switch on the stadium lights when the place isn't in use? How expensive it? I see local high schools and rec fields with the...

Re: CAA Footbal Future

Also I did a little additional research. First of all, ODU acquired its land for football practice facilities through a land swap with the city of Norfolk. I wonder how much money that saved ODU, to use to build their facility? http://hamptonroads.com/node/92931 Second, ODU announced football in 20...

Re: CAA Footbal Future

So would Georgia State be guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Yes, but then again who expected the economy to fall apart like it did? But, is Georgia State doing things "on the fly," I don't think so. Football is a long term investment for the University, any University....

Re: CAA Footbal Future

I wasn't inferring that the Big East concept was part of the business plan. What I was saying is that the four stage plan for the practice facility, field house, offices and weight room is apparently not yet fully funded. If it was you would think it would be under construction because it is needed...

Re: CAA Footbal Future

There's been discussion from some on the GSU board that if the Big East was take in GSU, the school could then parlay Big East related revenues to develop the needed facilities. Unfortunately that's polar opposite of the way it would need to work. The Big East would want to see the available invest...

Re: CAA Footbal Future

I'm not sure why everybody thinks that Ga State is going to go to FBS soon. They have miserable attendance at their basketball, and in football will have to compete with Ga Tech. A few of their fans bluster about going to FBS and making a huge splash on the college football scene, but frankly I don...
