How does this stack up against our SUNY Center competitors? I'm guessing much better.
With such a stellar resume how do we convert that into a promotion?
Outside of maybe Syracuse...we're probably the next best 'winningest' D1 school overall (but SU has what, a 100yr head start on us? lol)...at least it feels like it. What other NY school is up there? St. Johns? Definitely no SUNY and definitely not the other local community college. That place doesn't even register as a sports school on this map.
Lately, anyway. For sure, Cornell has some over the decades. I'd just want a national title to match the two hockey schools in the area. (RPI also won USILA's Wingate Trophy for the top college lacrosse team in 1952, before the NCAA had championships)
Looks like they're only selling tickets for the west grandstand and end zones, that'd cut maximum attendance to around 14K, I'd guess.
A note if you've never been there; the stands are very steep, built before ADA requirements, so while there are great views, you may not want the upper rows if you've got bad knees or hips, or a fear of heights.
Massey conference ratings have the ACC and Big 10 at the top, then a step down to a tight group (Colonial, Big East, Ivy, AE, and Patriot in that order) and then another step down to the NEC, SoCon and MAAC.
Don't forget America East was also the third-ranked men's soccer league last fall, behind only the ACC and PAC-12 and ahead of 21 others.
Speaking of the "bubble." At 8-6 and only 3-3 in their conference [not even getting out of the first round], & with one of those wins against lowly Michigan; may be hopkins should be sweating the bubble. but TRADITION?
Of course it is. From the Bracketology article just quoted: " … Johns Hopkins’ victory at North Carolina back in February could turn out to be the difference between home game and road trip in the first weekend of the tournament.
