  1. I stopped watching all sports. When athletic events turned into political rallies I was done. I also stopped all donations to my alma mater. I spend my Saturdays with my young kids. TV is limited to my kids shows. I’ve taken to day trading as a hobby. This is my first time back to BPF site in months.
  2. Maslow's hierarchy of needs... You’ve got too much time and money if BLM is your priority. Or worse yet taking pained efforts to splice words to tack on “too” because your marketing effort is offending instead of uniting. My mother grew up in war torn Europe. Her father in a POW camp. No food. No toys for the kids. Nothing. Bombs falling from the skies. What a testament to how affluent and easy our lives are if we have time to argue and fight over words. I wish for the days when we were poor and spent 12 hour days at work. No time for such luxuries
  3. Slap a roof on it and we have our field house 👍
  4. I’m not sure what is so hard for the Northeast to have a single budget friendly football FBS conference? Clearly with UMASS, UCONN and Army adrift and Buffalo, Temple and parts of the CAA available why something can’t be pieced together. There is clearly a need! I’m not talking about the SEC or BIG10. A MAC level conference with a Northeast footprint makes sense. I understand it’s probably a pipe dream but I don’t understand why. Why is the Northeast so damn dysfunctional?
  5. Our own Northeast Football FBS Conference
  6. I tweeted Susan Herbst, Gov Cuomo, UConn, UMASS and others lobbying for a Northeast cost containment football only conference. The Northeast seems to really have a need. 2 independents and several possible upgrade potentials in the CAA. Just need some damn leadership to make it happen!
  7. I will NOT withhold funds for the football program specifically or athletics generally. It’s too important to me and posses risk in crazy liberal New York. They’ll just ax the damn program. That said I give $0 to this university generally or any university. Just athletics. These universities are too screwed up to support their crap.
  8. Shouldn’t we sell out a home opener? Meaning did we in prior years?
  9. I had 15 tickets for the game. 12 if us showed so I ate the other 3 tickets. Tailgating was a lot of fun but very thinly attended. A few people attended toward the end. We started tailgating at 4. My uncle rolled in with catering level service so props to him. Same experience for the game. I thought attendance was light at first but by the first beer run there was a line. That could be because a single worker was manning the bar. The weather was awesome. The play on the field was poor. Based on prior experience I’d say it was a B- experience. Part of
  10. My donations are squarely tied to football. Too much nonsense happening at colleges for me to fund the university or academics. Not sure I’d follow UA much without it.
  11. Stories like this just make me want to say screw it. Cancel athletics altogether. There is so much political crap today it’s not worth watching. I’d rather throw my money in the sewer.
  12. I’ll be flying in from Michigan for Saturday’s game. I bought 15 tickets for family and friends. I was happy to see us play our first ACC team despite a loss. URI was a huge disappointment. The program seems a bit rudderless. Let’s make some changes to get us back to winning. Upward and onward
  13. Agree. A good ruling. Obviously not the 9th Circuit clown court.
