Subject: Fan Base

Just a post to see if the fans are really quiet. Or is Griff away and nothing is being posted. Since Griff is the only one to have an actual post button. It's been almost 3 weeks since anything has come out. I hope nothing is wrong with Griff and we have just gone silent.

WTF, Daemen? Why not the other Big 4 teams?

Because UB and Bona both suck and won't give up a home game for the betterment of local college basketball. Hopefully this means the Griffs are back in Mike McDonald's good graces

UB doesn't want to play a home game at a neutral site, especially against a local rival.

Apparently UB and NU were reluctant to give up a home game.Will be interesting to see what kind of a crowd the games will draw. Go Griffs!!!

For a Big 4 doubleheader to work it needs to be annual and consistent. Plus you need to incentivize the other three schools. Perhap sponsors, the Key Bank Center, the Big 4 as a group, etc. could pool money together to do one night for the doubleheader and give each of the Big 4 schools one home game in the arena.

Probably because both UB and NU have games both before and after 11/23, but nothing at home on the 23rd that could be moved. UB has expressed reservations more than once about giving up a home game to play downtown.

Eagle, this is true but let’s also not forget that Siena spends about twice as much money on men’s basketball vs. the Griffs. If you look at the numbers Siena’s budget rivals Bonas.

I agree, should be a Big 4 DH.

Does KeyBank have curtains for the upper level endzones?

I attend Siena games and the TU has curtains which makes a huge difference. Without the curtains even the TU (17.5K) is too big and with 5,000 it seems empty, plus you can hear the ball bounce. The curtains completely change the game atmosphere, the games seem crowded at 5K yet with a big time feel do to the scoreboard, video and high ceilings. It impresses recruits big time.

The TU is smaller than KeyBank (19.2K) and a bigger factor is that the TU’s steep seating (smaller footprint) meaning fans are closer to the action, more involved. Without the curtains I doubt that Siena would still be playing at the TU, their impact is that significant. Siena success in basketball is 100% responsible for Siena’s growth.

1) I wish the Bona game was a night game as Saturday afternoons are busy for many, especially those with kids....2) someone figure out a way to make the Saturday night of Thanksgiving weekend (or the weekend before) an annual Big 4 doubleheader night. Rotate home teams. Get sponsors involved...do whatever it takes. The selfishness has gone on long enough.
