I like playing as the underdog. We will never be able to invest in our program as some other programs do and I don't think we should go overboard. I'd go with the following investmet levels...

1. 59 scholarships. This would allow us to play a big "payday" game each year to lean from the best. This would be at the 90% rate that would allow a BCS team to schedule us without hurting their bowl chances. The payday may pay a good portion of the increase.

2. A 5,000 seat horseshoe designed Rooney Field. This would bring more to the game, help recruiting, and Is realistically doable. The press box must be expanded. Not press, no coverage, no help to recruiting. Make it a three level box with access from a walkway from an expended grandstand in the back. Turn the snack shop around to face the street or under an expanded grandstand. Take the presidents club and put it above the building in the East Endzone with boxes.

3. Re-establish a marching band. If every high school in the area can, so can Duquesne with its great music program. How many great band kids don't come here because there is no band???

Otherwise, we have considerable potential.

Everything sounds great but until we keep our core players in Pittsburgh for the summer we won't compete with the big dogs no matter what else we do. It is about the Jimmys and Joes and when ours arent familiar and as strong as those serious FCS teams the first few games your asking for trouble "L"s and injuries.
