Re: Attendance- Perspective

Agree with your overall point about OOC vs conference attendance, RJ, but most of the handwringing about URI attendance is related to not drawing great against the Holy Crosses and Browns in OOC. That’s why the distinction is warranted for this discussion.

Re: Attendance- Perspective
