    Stony Brook is growing their athletic program very much like Hofstra was doing when Shuart was at the helm....McCabe will get the Hofstra post because he will be a "yes" man and that is exactly what Rabinowitz wants...Everything at Stony Brook is positive....football has 3 major college transfers that will be eligible this coming season along with another strong recruiting class...basketball had a nice recruiting class....eventually they will move up to FBS, just a matter of time....they are already scheduling FBS schools [so was Hofstra before the program was abruptly cancelled].

    While I agree with what some of the article says, Should that also apply to the other programs. Does soccer and basketball make money for a majority of colleges. Is it just the bottom line or are there other factors why athletics in general are good or bad for universities. if we had accountants running the schools there would be no NCAA or maybe just a hand full of colleges who will have athletics. It is a slippery slope. The economy I am sure is a major factor for cutting programs.

    The guy only wrote the best book ever on football (according to Sports Illustrated), had it made into a movie and two television series. I'll hear him out.

    Sarcasm at its finest.

    I guess the author has a point, but omitted some big points. For the 99 percent of college football players that will never make it to the NFL, it's a great way to get an education, in many cases on scholarship, in many cases for people who might have never gone to college otherwise. That's the most positive impact of the sport.

    Plus, people enjoy college football and it does invoke school spirit. Of course the purity of the sport is bastardized at the top level, but that's where football can actually have a positive financial impact on the school. It's unfortunate FBS has become all about payouts though.

    Also homecoming is always related to football. from high schools on it is always a football rally connected to homecoming.
