Re: Random Pet Peeve

Football etiquette is missing. Children should be chaperoned, they should not roam around the west stadium club level. that is what happened. 5 monsters ruined much of the game for many of those in section 7 of the club seat area. Never sat down, moved to the rail blocking the view for many in atten...

Re: Random Pet Peeve

How about people that bring kids to games, then let them run wild. Four kids in the club seating area were as bad as I have ever seen, screaming all game long moving down to the rail blocking the view for folks in that part of the seating area. all the time the " adult " with them does nothing to he...

All the seats are now numbered so the actuall capacity is 25,000 and change, actually if you remove the students, we only need around 17,000 for a sellout

Re: Random Pet Peeve

I could care less if YBU is annoyed by insulting variations by which we refer to them. I do not see the ewe of ewe as a rival given they do not play us so it appears you are concerned about names called YBU. I have heard USU called dairy ewets, which is kind of clever

Re: When will the full schedule be released?

There are many reasons why name teams do not play USU in the Spectrum. First is of course it is a tough place to play, second is we do not have commercial air service, so unless they charter it is a more difficult trip. Third reason is we are not a program that most people's fans would think is a to...

My 7 year old noticed immediately and was overjoyed. He hates the cannon. He has very sensitive ears and doesn’t like any loud noises. He struggles with the Spectrum noise too.
Poor kid he must not have a lot of fun at loud games, that is to bad.

Re: Not Excited For This Game

Well Stony Brook has a larger overall athletic budget than Montana or Montana state by $10 million, in fact it is larger than San Jose st.

They played 3 FCS schools ranked in the top 25, won 2 and lost the third ranked one by 3 points on the road. They maybe better than our fans believe.

Every coach that I have played for or known tells his kids to never give up regardless of what happens. This team came very close to have a great goal line stand.

Re: Concede the Touchdown

The only play calling I really objected to was trying to hold WF with a minute and a half remaining. Concede the touchdown, and get a substantial amount of time to mount a game saving drive (and save time outs). I would have ordered the line to physically carry the RB into the end zone if necessary...

Yes we do not have MWC officials in North Carolina. However they are not the reason we lost. but it is nearly impossible to go a entire game without a holding call. Without that targeting call towards the end they would not have one penalty.
