I think basketball, Men's specifically, is the flagship program and only real opportunity for any real national viability. Nonetheless, if we're going to have football, we've got to fund it as an athletics priority. Win us a game Saturday, Torbush. I do want football to be successful. I want anything ETSU does to be a top tier effort, including the FPAC that has been delayed for so long.

P.S. I'm all for the cultural aspects of football. The money debates have been inane and overly political. I don't trust economic impact studies when it comes to sports.

Geez...you keep saying the same stuff over and over. Rinse and repeat.....hey I get where your username comes from now!

I understand that, I am sure everyone does. But what I found funny is that the year AFTER dropping football, the program losing 1 million a year according to Stanton, the budget went up, where was that million dollar savings? So they not only spent all the money football was losing they added to it and lost what revenue football was generating. Smart business plan.

And you all do the same from the fervent football angle. The difference is color of glasses and audience.

I'm actually very happy that basketball is being realigned as the realistic national visibility / flagship program. And I'm happy that ETSU is trying football again, just not going to blindly accept everything the new regime says. Yes, we are talking the old regime vs. new. This board like's Noland's agenda better than Stanton's (and I tend to agree) but the fact of agendas remains.

Completely fair point. Where the hell did the money go that year?!

I am actually a basketball guy myself but a university the size of ETSU needs football. ETSU was less of a university without it. You can argue it wasn't but I experienced it too many times how people thought less of the school because it didn't have football.

This isn't a Stanton vs Noland model; its a Stanton model vs EVERY DIVISION 1 ATHLETICS PROGRAM IN THE PAST 80 YEARS MODEL. Only 3 sports matter; football, mens and womens basketball. And at the FCS level I also think basketball is where ETSU can make its brand nationally. If ETSU would have followed through with the plan Stansbury had 13 years ago there is a chance we would already achieved national success in bball and moved to a better conference.

Yep, even if Basketball is the flagship sport, most conferences that we'd like to be part of have Football as a requirement. I think even if we have a bottom tier football program (I don't expect it to stay this bad all that long), it's a necessary sport for the others to have the visibility they need.

Rod, I beat that drum for years. Again, that $1 million thing was a big lie from the get go -- and the local yokels bought it hook line and sinker. The JC Press pushed that football losing $1 million a year crap every chance they got for years. They never seemed to figure out what was going on, or was just one of Stanron's mouthpieces. Anyway, it is a dead horse, of course, but that Stanton-Mullins athletic model (that Stanton predicted many other I-AA schools would adopt) hurt ETSU more than can ever be known. Trying to correct that money wasting experiement is like digging out of a grave now.

TennisAnyone was a legendary poster of the mid 2000's.
Football is here, it's here to stay. It's going to be funded properly. The key is getting this damn stadium built and built right.
