good stuff! I agree we need more exposure and more $$$. We should come up with creative ways to assist the program. I noticed the website will soon have a feature "Blue Devils in the News." We do the best we can with what we have. We need more $$$! We have made tons of progress since the early 1990s, but much more can be done. I like the attitude we all have.

I think everyone is on the bandwagon that we need to join the New Englad/New York public universities in the America East Conference. This is home to many former Yankee Conference memebers, that UConn fans and locals will recognize!

Who do we need to lobby for a marketing manager? Dr. Miller, CSU BOT, someone else?

Finally, I know the SCSU game doesn't do much for us, but I'm in the minority as I like it. Think about this, what if UConn refused to play us becasue we are "inferior." Let's face it when CCSU/UConn plays in any sport it only helps us, not them. When the shoe is on the other foot it sucks. BTW - Southern is one of the top-10 DII athletic programs nationally. They have a great history and are our sister school. We shouldn't go on the road to play them, but in my mind the Owls are welcome to play us in New Britain in any sport at any time.

I agree totally with J.J. about playing Southern. I have been a Blue Devil fan for over 50 years. Southern has been our biggest rival for many many years. This is a big in state rivalry that should be continued. I remember in the 60's and early 70's when the whole Southern roster was made up of Connecticut players. Friday night, about half of their players still come from Connecticut. The coverage by the Hartford Courant of any other team other than UConn is an absolute joke! Until this year, even the New Britain Herald which is only two miles down the rode from Central was virtually non-existant on its football coverage. The areas high schools bot better coverage. This year, at least Matt Straub is making a good attempt to provide newspaper coverage. Central sport fans do a pretty good job of "preaching to the choir." Not enough! Get on the phone or email these sports writers and editors directly and complain........I do! Guess what? I never hear from any of them because I'm only one person and they think I'm nuts. However, if all of you who read and write on this forum do this then maybe something will happen. Fire up!

How about posting their contact info and we can get a constructive email campaign. (not flaming) Matt Straub feels like the only ally on the newspaper side.
