    I haven't kept up with how Hofstra has done lately, but the school has had some pretty good football teams in the past, hasn't it?
    Oh well, at least they haven't cut wrestling...yet.

    No more Wayne Chrebets then.

    Somewhere, Meshawn rejoices.

    They should schedule a home and home with George Mason football.

    Meanwhile, the Pride pride will live on through Marques Colston.

  7. That's absolutely crazy. Football pays for every other sport at that school. I knew Weeb Ewbank Hall was being turned into a Med School, but are we to believe that the Jets' rent footed the bill for everything?

    wow, didn't see this coming, only because of all the effort the U. put in over the last decade. A mini-Rutgers effort. what's newsday going to do, stuff more Islanders in our stockings? But honestly, Long Island is not football country. It's lax, soccer, baseball, basketball, softball whatever, but it is not football. No one here is making a trek to Hosfta to see a mediocre college game on a Saturday. Leaves Stony Brook, and their new stadium as the only D1 program on the Island. Lets see what they do. Funny because SB has been trying hard to a rivalry going with Hofstra and the latter seemed to look down on SB. Now the Brook will probably be getting some decent transfers.

    Rumors now that URI will be next to drop. That would be three in two weeks in the CAA.

    Damn. I hate to hear this. Yes, Hofstra football has been pretty strong.

    Football at that level kills you. UR, the defending FCS champion, drew like 6,800 for its playoff opener on Saturday.

    Someone else said it, I think. But you have to think the Jets leaving killed the program. The Jets were probably bringing in the revenue to sustain a program. Once that was gone, there was nothing paying for it.
