The Future has nailed it.  Colgate football is in great shape.  Excellent coach. Terrific players and broad support of the team and Vicky Chun and her whole team!  Go 'Gate!!

BOT directed athletics to drop them.  Think they felt Bryant wasn't a traditional opponent and doesn't fit the current "schedule up" attitude.  Of course if the alternative ends up being a 10 game schedule you'd have to call this a mistake...[/quote]

then let's call it a mistake!  had the pleasure of attending the football banquet Saturday (wonderful event!)  and was told that the 2nd week will remain open and only 10 games will be played.  Spoke to over 20 players about the 10 games and only 4 home games NOT one of them liked it, NOT one!!

Hey, that's my quote!  I stand by it, would much rather have an 11th game and if it's at home in September, all the better.  I know for sure when we dropped Bryant the intent was to replace the game with another opponent, looks like that didn't work out.  So chalk it up as a mistake, but let's not then extrapolate that attendance is declining, the program is dying, etc... when there's no evidence to back those assertions up.

I never said that the program was dying, I simply stated the obvious: the 2016 schedule sux!  and the players, especially the Sr's deserve better!

Agate, check out GR's comment from 2/20.  Think that's what folks are reacting to...

Bla bla bla, mamby pamby. Stream the games while making love or in the bathroom ?? How sad !
What about the locals, I haven't missed a Gate home game in maybe 20-25 years, I can't even tell you the last time I missed a game. I guess I've been watching since around 1953 when my parents would take me to the games. Father dressed like Vince Lombardy, it was suits and fur coats worn to the games.
Maybe I live a shallow life but their are many diehards that live and die with Gate football and hockey. We look forward to seeing old alums and people that we don't see except at these events(like Gate83). Maybe we don't count with our shallow pockets, and you guys think streaming a game once or twice a year if they make the playoffs suffices, believe it or not their are more important things in life than money.
One home game in Sept and Oct is just brutal, come to a game in September with the changing leaves, theirs nothing like it.

Zap, look forward to seeing you Friday.  Maybe for the women at 3 and then hit the Southern Tier tap takeover at Rusch's?

At least we're at 'Cuse next year... that's closer to your house than Colgate I think!

Not having an 11th game is a mistake. There are far worse things than playing Bryant at home early in the season (like not having an 11th game).

Zappa, you have probably been to a few hundred more home games than I have, how do you think attendance has changed over the years? Numbers are inflated now with season ticket holders but crowds also look smaller with the Dunlap stands. I was there for 2-9 Colgate playing Davidson in the snow so I know they were some (very) small crowds mixed in with the big ones.

Anybody know is the 10 games is set in stone or if they are still looking? Seems like NDSU might have an opening--maybe Vicky gets a home and home with them and everybody is happy. (Though I am sure there is a down side to this somewhere posters can find.)

Also, where is Maven? Does Gate '80 have him (or her) handcuffed to the old board? Maven knows stuff!!!

NDSU is not happening (at least not for 2016)
