    Lafayette an Bucknell simply choose to. Plus, are they allocating the same number of scholarships as Colgate, Fordham and Lehigh? My guess is no...
    Lafayette is somewhere above 55 scholarships. Not sure of the exact number but it's not far from the max. Lafayette was bad because we had a terrible coaching situation and an AD who refused to do anything. Last time Lafayette had competent coaching they did quite well, and we will get back to that point again soon. Not sure why Bucknell can't get over the hump.

    Buckies are hard to figure. Susan's inability to recruit a top QB is certainly a major component.

    As to the question of why the stands are not retained on the east side, there is talk that the soccer teams may have to be relocated to this facility if their land gets acquired for yet another building. If so, the field width has to expand and that's why this area is seen as turf on the drawings.

    Newly-approved Cooper Field:


    Existing Cooper Field:


    That's not a lot of added value for the donor's $50 million contribution, IMHO.

    That's what 50m gets you?

    Uh. If you have 50m in donations you should do something better.

    I used to care about UNI football. May well again some day....

    Here's what the D.C. Zoning Commission originally approved in October 2007:




    In a December 16, 2016 letter, D.C. Zoning Administrator Matthew Le Grand determined that the current, "modified" proposal with 1600 fewer seats, is "within the parameters of the Commission's original approval . . . and do[es] not require further zoning approval."

    Don't they play above the gym on that new(ish) field that they openned with great fanfare a few years ago?

    I was gonna say, new stands on home side and some trees. Took down the old stands. Planted grass and put up a fence.
