The 21st is a Wednesday. But I'm glad to see that SU's streak of social media confusion -- much like its streak of beating up on Colgate -- continues!

game to me is more than money. so the SU program goes belly up if we play one game in colgate ? give them a game on their home court . we'll survive.

They don’t even have a decent size high school gym if it only seats 1750, you can’t be serious about playing in their closet.

But will Colgate survive?

We play in front of 18-20,000 fans, and Colgate takes home a nice six-figure paycheck.

We play in Hamilton in front of 1700 fans, how much $$$ will Colgate make?

We pay for their hoops program with one game. They're not going to give that up to get us in their HS gym.

We are in the same conference as Duke if you are desperate to see us play in a HS gym you can drive down to Durham when we play them.

Exactly. Truly one of the more bizarre takes - and that's saying a lot coming from tbone. I'm sure they let people walk around campus if you don't bother anyone and really want to see it that badly.

You got it. Heck, give the athletic department twenty bucks and they'll let you play five-on-five in Cotterell Court. Or you could walk in any day of the week and shoot around by yourself for free.

Seriously, Colgate's program doesn't even want to play this game. They've come to the Dome for 20 years for one reason: SU funds something like half of Colgate's hotel stays and bus trips to Worcester, West Point, Bethlehem, Easton, Annapolis, Roslyn, and Lewisburg with just that one guarantee game at the Dome. It's the difference between Colgate having a basketball team and not, because the 47 Madison County residents and nostalgic alumni who pay to attend their home games really aren't keeping the program's head above water.

sure colgate could schedule another big to give them a warm up game and beat down if that's what they want. once again you make college hoops all about the money.

Not me. Every D1 school. Don't hold your breath waiting for a roadie to Hamilton. Minimal travel to keep the costs down. No other P5 school can say that. The only way we play Colgate anywhere but the Dome is if we were to face them in the NCAAT.
