Re: CCSU adds Yale and D-II AIC to future schedules

Is there a return game in New Britain? Ha ... I doubt it. We got $10K and 1K tickets in payment from Yale. Yale averaged 5,700 for all non-Harvard home games at the Bowl in 2019. While it would be a great game in New Britain, it isn't realistic to expect a historic program like Yale to bus up to pl...

Re: CCSU at Miami (FL) 9/25/2021

Maybe I’ll go to Fla. early in 2021. Maybe I’m being naive but I would think $1,000,000 would be more appropriate for this level of play. 🤔 Not really, FCS teams generally can't get more than $750k for a game. This is a great deal and exposure for CCSU. https://www.fcsfansnation.com/stories/2019/8/...

Re: Future Schedules (2020-2028)

Anyone hear anything about CCSU's 2021 FBS opponent; possibly a game at Boston College on Sep 4, 2021? No truth to the BC rumor, instead Central will play fellow ACC member Miami Hurricanes on September 25, 2021. https://fbschedules.com/miami-hurricanes-add-central-connecticut-2021-football-schedule/

CCSU at Miami (FL) 9/25/2021

Absolutely fantastic! The Central Connecticut State Blue Devils football team will play 5-time National Champions Miami (FL) Hurricanes on September 25, 2021. Who would have thunk back in 1983 that CCSU would one-day play the Miami Hurricanes in football? Kudos to Coach McCarthy and AD Pincince for ...

Re: Northeast Conference Announces Suspension of Spring Conference Play

With the NEC suspending Spring athletics and the NCAA cancelling Spring Championships, I have an eligibility-related question.

Will the NCAA grant all Spring student-athletes another year of eligibility?

Re: 2020 NEC Tournament

Just curious Will MC receive a bid to the NIT since they are the regular season NEC champs? Or do they have to complete the transition? It’s my understanding that the NIT can invite any team the committee agrees to...hence the word “Invitational”. The NCAA bought out the NIT a few years ago. It is ...

Re: 2020 NEC Tournament

Ugh ...

#3 Hartford beat #2 Stony Brook in the America East semifinals. The Hawks will play at #1 Vermont in the finals.

I hope the Catamounts pound UHa. But I expect Hartford will get accept an invite to a pay-for-play tournament like the CIT, if they lose to UVM.

Re: 2020 NEC Tournament

Great atmosphere at RMU. Looked good on TV and repped the NEC well. I miss those days at CCSU :( Robert Morris is a great program with a new facility. How long until the Horizon Conference or even the MAAC come calling? Also, give Andy Toole credit. He's a great coach and is likely on to a bigger pr...

In his first season as head coach, Jay Young led Fairfield to a 12-19 record (8-12 MAAC). The Stags finished 8th of 11 teams in the MAAC. In his second season as head coach, Shaheen Holloway led St. Peters to a 17-12 record (14-6 MAAC). The Peacocks finished 2nd in the MAAC this season. https://nypo...
