    Georgetown: New Football Facility In 2018

    The good news: For the first time in 13 years, Georgetown has put a date on the never ending "Phase 2" of the Multi-Sport Facility project with an expansion in capacity from 2,400 to to 4,750 by the 2018 season.

    The bad news: if you're a fan of the other team used to sitting in the east side stands, bring a folding chair instead.

    That's one way to create a true home field advantage by making the opposing team fans sit on the grass including the band members...

    Great news! Georgetown can compete as a need base program IF they commit in other areas. This is a huge deal for the program and the PL.

    4750 sell outs? I would think you could still find a seat back as an opposing fan.

    It looks like there is space on the visitor's side for bleachers if I'm reading the plans correctly. Any particular reason why they won't erect any for the "new" facility?

    In theory if you look at the teams RMU plays in conference they don't travel well anyways. Lafayette & Lehigh fans generally travel halfway decent the rest of the teams you might be lucky if they bring 100 fans/band members.

    Monmouth plays in a conference far outside their regional area. Closest opponent to them is Liberty but they're moving to FBS so after that it's Garner-Webb in NC

    No need-based team can compete in the PL anymore. If they could, why didn't Bucknell and Lafayette stay with aid packages?

    The PL has not changed THAT much with the addition of scholarships. Scholarships do not guarantee success. There's plenty of scholarship teams that suck. Some of them have resided in the PL. If Georgetown improves their facilities and adds a little more flavor to their scheduling I think they can be competitive in a scholarship era PL.

    Lafayette an Bucknell simply choose to. Plus, are they allocating the same number of scholarships as Colgate, Fordham and Lehigh? My guess is no...
