Siena's AD opined that the game should be at the TUC because it is a community game and that the TUC would allow more fans to see the game. This rationale or explanation would be furthered if the scho

without knowing any of the details of the negotiations, a big pat on the back to Mark for his willingness to pass on this game/contract until an equitable offer is on the table ... during our early ye

Been looking at some data...Siena's MBB budget is 3.1million, Albany is at 1.85...looks bad right...until you realize while UA is spending 303k on game day operating expenses for the year (read SEFCU) Siena is spending 1.22 million of 39% of their budget goes to game day expenses to put on games. This is for sports year 15/16, latest data available.

That's crazy regardless...we're losing money (A LOT OF IT) every game? How much can we make on ticket sales in a sold SEFCU? $100k (4,500 * $20 = $90k)? You think we make $200k in vending/food sales? I don't.

Why the heck does it cost $300k to open the arena for a 2hr game? That's nuts. Is it all those yellow shirts we have all of a sudden which we don't need? I can't imagine the electricity, vendor and staff (audio/video, announcer, etc.) costing that much for 2-3hrs.

Pretty sure the $300k figure is for the year..not per game..haha.

Also..I would imagine the overkill of ushers, security staff, etc. has pushed that number higher..given that the $300k data is from 15-16.

That's correct, data set is from 15/16 and the cost is PER YEAR not per game of $300k. LOL

hahah...totally misread that. "Game day operations" sounded like, literally the day of the game, but now that you mention it I can see that it'd make more sense for that to be cumulative for the whole year. Doh! #brainfart #itwas11soillblameitonthemorning

Tuition is higher at Siena than Albany. If scholarship cost is part of the budget equation that's going to give their basketball budget a bigger number also.
