Re: Lack of marketing (lazy old regime wasting DH's time?)

Agreed on the marketing sucks Rod. But there has to be a way to get another 1000 people in those BB stands other than relying on the PC game. Look at FB,am told the raffle is down (over time) to $20K in revenue vs $40K,which to me indicates that some core supporters are drifting. They offset that wi...

Re: All CAA

Ginetti to Syracuse.
Beauvais and Parker to SEC schools.
Boyd to Temple.
Pires to St. Thomas More Prep in Montville Ct.. Where he can learn to catch punts there without a lot of pressure.
URI coaches can monitor his progress conveniently.

Thorr is correct-Fleming is paid ahead of Maine and below UNH.
The state is not over spending,(nor are they getting any return).

Re: How many games will the football team win in 2017?

Ramster-I do not get the comparison of state employees vs. Coaches or any URI faculty. Fleming get paid less than anybody in CAA other than maybe Maine?

Re: URI football: History is chasing us

No extension for Fleming (unless he wins 2 or 3 games in a row).
Ed-since 1985,look at the amount of all conference QBS and O line from UNH and Maine Vs. Rhody!!
Thats a big part of problem! At Maine and UNH a good QB plays 2 seasons.
Rhody goes thru 2 a game!
