Buffalo Super Fan, what's your background?

If you're a student, intern in the Department of Athletics. If you're a donor/fan, share these insights directly with staff.

Your optimism and passion are great. The reality is that it costs money to make money. Bona has several staff whose ONLY jobs are to make the school money through licensing and fundraising. UB has 11 people dedicated to marketing, licensing, and fundraising.

Canisius doesn't have the state money or history of LARGE donors to support that.

Does that mean that Canisius gets a pass for everything? No. Should Canisius hire someone exclusively to lead fan development/fundraising the way Manhattan did? Yes.

First of all I agree that Canisius for too many years has gone on the cheap. Reggie,Maher etc appear not to have the vision to grow this program. It appears they are actually killing the program.I cheer for UB football because we do not have a team. They are Buffalo's college football team. I will cheer for Niagara when the Griffs aren't playing them, like I do for other MAAC teams when they are playing out of conference. Bona and UB think they are better than us. How does Niagara not play Bona or UB this year. F them, I know how I would have felt if that was the Griffs.

I'm not sure I agree on Bill Maher. He has to work within a budget put in place by the Administration. That gets him to "on the cheap". These days Niagara is way out-doing Canisius. Their apparently talented young coach is doing a fine job by everything that appears on Voy. He has an impressive group of 2022 recruits lining up,maybe including the second coming of Bob Lainier or Mike Smrek. Every time I see one of those NU, "Power of Niagara" quick spots on TV, I think, how many incoming students does that cost CC?. In the meantime at Main and Jefferson from the Administration to the Athletics Office (Men's BB)- seems nothin's happenin'. We are rumored to have a meaningful improvement in enrollments this semester, including from out of state. But no pub on that; not even by e-mail to the Alums. How about some numbers ASAP? We'll probably be waiting breathlessly in the Spring for some word on commits for Men's hoops. Will we still be waiting to learn then who the new CC President is, after a "Nation Wide Search"? If she/he is not the right person with real vision and a lot of enthusiasm, God help us (seriously). St. Peter Canisius, please schedule an appointment to talk with Him.
