Subject: SBU football

Here is a great Newsday article regarding Stony Brook's football schedule:
<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.newsday.com/sports/college/ny-skmarc013950213sep01,0,3205528.story">http://www.newsday.com/sports/college/ny-skmarc013950213sep01,0,3205528.story</a>

It reads that SBU is using games vs. scholarship squads as a "litmus test" for their future plans. Albany is doing the same thing. I know CCSU hasn't faired well against A-10 teams recently, however do you think the school will invest more resources and continue to schedule up in hopes of competing with teams like Hofstra and Maine? To me it looks like the future of I-AA mid-major football is very bleak, so will we follow the lead of the 2 SUNY schools, or will CCSU hope limited aid football continues into the future?

honestly, I don't see CCSU following the same path.

I thought so. I know CCSU doesn't have the $ to keep up with other schools, I just don't know who we are going to play in 5 years. By then I expect teams like UA, SBU, and Duq to "step up" to the A-10/Patroit. St. Peter's, SFPA, LaSalle and Iona drop football. So what's left for mid-majors: CCSU, SHU, RMU, Mon, Wag, and Marist plus the Pioneer schools. It just seems like the NCAA needs to do something, but I don't know what.

Here is an article that says 1-aa (mid major) is going to be more competitative with less teams. An interesting thought. Also, it says LaSalle is serious about football.
