I also do not see it happening for a long time. How have other teams done who moved out of the AE for bball since they left. I think it is not very good. Also, I know UB is struggling in FBS with attendance and the budget. Also, UA and the other university centers don't seem to have big student support or support from administrators and faculty, which would be needed for a large increase in the budget for the athletic department because it would effect other departments greatly.
I spent all of Saturday in and around the stadium from about 2pm until after the lax game with my buddy, his daughter (current UA soph) and 3 of her friends. We asked them about support for athletics on campus and they said there is none. They went to two basketball games this season and only because their friend sang the national anthem and they left during the first half. They said no one talks about it and no one cares. That's sad and part of what will keep us from moving up for a long time.
I don't care who is governor. Unless that governor is going to get A LOT more money for the SUNY budget that will go mostly towards athletics. I just don't see that getting passed.
