Re: Lafayette cancels on Navy - Sept 12th

Re: Live Construction Footage

I note the use of the word "scheduled" game on September 19. It will be interesting to see where UD lands on having a football season much less actually having fans in the stands. Further if the UD decides to have fans in the stands at the Tub, how will that play out in terms of controlling the cro...

Re: Hero Sports realignment article has UD in the American

Only NC State and Maine were scheduled as charter flight trips this season and in both cases only one overnight is required. The team flies home after the game. Regardless of kickoff time the same is true of all bus trips; the team always buses home after the game. With respect to NC State & Maine ...

Re: When will College Football resume? Links and references.

It all comes down to money with all of these decisions. NASCAR has to fulfill its Cup Series television contract with Fox and NBC, which is why it squeezed three races into a week in the spring and have more multi-race weekends coming in August. NBA is building a $150 million bubble in Florida for ...

Re: NJ Article on Spending

If UD can't sell-out (ATTENDANCE: 14489) 8-time FCSChamps NDSU, the problem is much bigger than most "fans" & the UD Administration would care to admit. The FACT that the UDAD is now allowing STH's to keep their seats (on hold) & not buy them until the 2021 season was shocking to me! :oops: hen4lif...

Re: When will College Football resume? Links and references.

As far as the NFL goes, they should cancel the entire season. Why unless compelled to by an untenable covid-10 situation? The NFL makes big money just from TV. The NFL is not dependent on ticket sales, concessions, and parking revenue. Colleges are. I agree that the NFL gets more from TV however I ...

The athletic department received just $710,000 from donor contributions in 2017-18, below the FCS median, according to the Knight Commission. With the exception of several Historically Black Colleges and Universities, most FCS schools had a larger percentage of their revenue from those sources than...
