Are we leaving lots of $$$ on the table without a corporate sponsorship?

I don't know but we've asked the question on Bull Run

http://www.ubbullrun.com/2014/5/27/5753264/buffalo-stadium-naming-rights

"In our own conference there is InfoCision Stadium, in Akron Ohio. InfoCision is currently in the midst of a half-a-million dollar per year deal for the next decade. In addition to the stadium Akron cut a deal with Summa Health. From that deal the Zips earn $250,000 per year for the next two decades to call their field "Summa Health Field"."

Look BIE Minnesota with the Twin Cities that is it basically the only large main city wise

I stopped here... you're clearly talking out of your rear.. Nobody here, even in the outer ring suburbs, thinks of Minneapolis and Saint Paul as one city.

First don't take this post personally BIE stop being snarky when you know I am right about Buffalo and the Twin Cities it is apples and oranges

I'm not being snarky, I just refuse to indulge you when your whole premise is Bull-Shaq. I lived in Buffalo for 24 years, I've lived in the twin cities for almost 15. They are *FAR* more similar than apples and oranges. You've never lived in MSP. You simply do not know what you're talking about.

BIE I have never lived in the MSP, I never said I did, but I have been to the Twin Cities

Did you stay at a holiday inn while you were here?

Probably because in order to speculate on position battles, you need someone to attend open practices, and most regular posters here have been driven away by the bullshaq.

This site has a cancer, and it is slowly killing it.

Agreed, but how do you fix it?

This site has an Admin and a Mod.  If they they are happy with the status quo, there's not much to do.   Things may turn around once there are games to talk about, or the board will contine to devolve down to 4 posters arguing with each other.
Thanks for the feedback.  I think we need to connect with students.  Not sure if students are eager to discuss UB football.  I'm open to ideas.  Yes, perhaps I need to create a twitter and facebook account.

Anything I can do to help let me know... I cant imagine how hard managing the platform and the content is... On BR I only have to worry content.

One of the things I really like about sbnation is the back room discussions between site and league owners about how to keep sites growing. I remember when UBFan went looking for posters. Id seem the on ESPN and the like.. This community can be rebuilt but the users need to leverage twitter, facebook, and other social media to get people here.

A lot of the newer users we pull on Bull Run come from Twitter, thats been the way for years. Now I am also pushing hard on facebook

If you're not growing you're dying.

There is also a need to welcome new people and their odd opinions not have an "old guard" mentality.

Were sending someone out to the scrimmage today, hopefully he will have something up this weekend.

If things seem quiet at Bull Run I apologize, we are organizing for the season and with up to 12 authors this year it's going to take some time.

The football team is breaking in the new turf today.


I assume the regular goal posts will be up for Duquesne.


Where is the outline of New York State??


Around the words.  Look at earlier pictures.


No shaq sherlock..... Im left to assume then that it can only be seen from certain angles?  Because from the picture YOU posted, its not there.

I think its an artifact of the resolution / quality  of the picture. I can kind of see it but I also see a lot of pixilation.

ESPN Pre-Season All Americans - entirely from P5    http://espn.go.com/ncf/feature/video/_/page/PreseasonAllAmericans140821/2014-all-america-team
ESPN Pre-Season All Conference teams - only the 5 Power Conferences mentioned    http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/tag/_/name/2014-preseason-all-conference-teams
ESPN currently running a "College Football Mock Draft" which only includes P5 conferences

It does not help that this may be a down year for the G5 schools... UCF lost their start QB as did NIU. Boise is back to really good but not great... Our best hope for an undefeated team may be Marshall and they play a schedule which may be the weakest in football..

But even if that were not the case I think ESPN has been moving that way for some time.

Wow thats a huge difference. So...how big is this in terms of funding the fieldhouse renovations etc?? Will a lot of this money be able to get put to use like that?

The thing to remember is this... It's not about how much money you have it's about how much you can finance with it ;)

White has said the East Club was about drawing in a revenue stream to finance new projects. I think it was 1,600 or so premium seats which required on average a 1,000 dollar per year commitment for 10 years.

*IF* White sold them all thats 1.6 Million a year in revenue which was the *key* to financing many of the bigger projects. The revenue from the new ESPN deal is going to add about 700K a year to UB's coffers. I'd like to think that will all go into financing other projects but its far more likely you just saw how UB may start paying the full cost of attendance.

--

BTW UMass had a great idea for FCA. The Coach said the team may go from 85 scholarships down to 80-82 and use the difference to pay FCA... Im not sure about his math but it is an intriguing way at keeping up with the Big Boys.

I guarantee you that every single person here advocating playing in an NFL stadium would hate it after experiencing a year of actually playing in an NFL stadium. Ask ANY other fan base that's tried it how it's worked out for them (Tulane, Houston, heck even Temple or Pitt). It sounds like a great idea until you actually experience it for yourself and realize what a terrible fan experience it is.

Is it better than UB stadium is today?

Having been to games at Temple (Lincoln Financial) and UMass (Gillette) UB Stadium is better.  Having under 10,000 in 60,000+ seat stadium is horrible.

Enough of the folks here have all said it sucks. I guess that convinces me UB Stadium is better than an NFL stadium .

Ask any of the fan bases that have been there, done that (Houston, Tulane, Umass, Temple, Pitt, ect). Heck you live in Minny, Tim, ask the Gopher fans how they felt about sharing the Metrodome with the Vikings for years.

I don't need to ask them, I have you guys!
