gate'80, I enjoy reading your posts on the history of Colgate football. However, that was 35 years ago and the landscape has dramatically changed. Colgate is in the FCS and that is where their future is unless there is another dramatic change in college football. That might happen, if the current FBS teams become semi-pro and fans once again embrace true college football played by students. To build a strong fan base and get really good players, Colgate needs to win consistently and schedule home games that are convenient for fans. No one loves 'gate football more than me and I work to get people to go to the games. Last weeks listed attendance of 2,900 (overestimated) is very poor. While the weather report was lousy, it actually didn't rain hard and for more than half the game there was no rain. Get more home games earlier in the season during the beautiful autumn weather. It helps.
