in a way using those two schools as the benchmark is small minded thinking considering the original post said 4X the budget.

I automatically went to Gonzaga and Xavier. both a little bit larger enrollment, but I dare say that enrollment increased with success of national exposure due to men's hoops. Men's hoops is basically the only reason we have all heard of Gonzaga.
And before we eliminate Xavier just because..... they have to compete with the Reds, Bengals, Univ of Cinn and two other Major Schools not too far away. Ohio State and Louisville.
I'm sure those two schools have a blue print of success.

the obvious quick answers without solutions:
Major gifts/donors
Steady continual small gifts/donors
Recruit Local - More than they have been.(land the local big fish every year, if not, every other year)
Play elsewhere (other than a glorified HS gym) - I don't have that answer. Aud fit somewhat, KeyBank - too large/empty.

I forget what local rival coach said it, but their philosophy was "locally dominant, regionally prominent, and nationally relevant." I think that's absolutely right.

Bona and Siena can serve as benchmarks, but the goal should be creating a national presence long-term.

Time for us to figure it out. Let’s be honest we know what we have right now doesn’t make us locally dominant, regionally prominent and nationally relevant. Go Griffs!

Great ideas, but all a pipe dream. These suggestions and observations have been tossed about for years. The College doesn’t have the money or the visionaries to pull it off. Those are the facts. We are stuck with what we got. Unless they get a decent coaching staff who can also recruit, there is no hope to avoid being perennial bottom feeders in the MAAC. Go Griffs
