Very encouraging developments. These guys get it and have made great progress from where things stood a couple of years ago...Cuse Football Game Day Focus on Fans
'Cuse Football Game Day Focus on Fans - Syracuse University Athletics
Love the ride share change. That is so huge
The band is in the Dome very early. Remember, they perform a pre-game show that begins a good half hour before kickoff. Before that they march over to the Dome from the Quad.When does the band normally head in to the stadium? Seems to be a conflict of interest incentivizing concession discounts if people really would prefer to stay out and enjoy the quad's new festival atmosphere.
Scooch, curious how the band is doing numbers wise these days. I randomly ran by my local high school marching band practicing recently and it seemed to be like 1/4 the size it used to be 20 years ago.The band is in the Dome very early.

No one who likes watching the band on the Quad would ever not be able to make it to their seats with tons and tons of time to spare.
They will also have routes from Great Northern Mall andSU Football Game Day Express
Centro's 440 Game Day Express Shuttles operate from the Centro Transit Hub to and from the Carrier Dome for each SU Home Game. Shuttle service begins 90 minutes prior to kick-off and ends 60 minutes after the conclusion of each game.
Customers may board the Game Day Express Shuttle at Bay C19 at the Centro Transit Hub. Buses will pick up and drop off on Waverly Avenue near the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
Round-trip tickets may be purchased at the Centro Transit Hub Information Booth prior to boarding the bus. Tickets may also be purchased at Shaughnessy’s Irish Pub, which is conveniently located in the Marriott Syracuse Downtown on the corner of Harrison and Warren Streets.
Regular Centro fares apply and all valid Centro Ride Passes and Transfers will be accepted.
The SUMB fluxuates a lot in numbers, but they have consistently had an estimated 150 on the field every year. Band dorks are band dorks for life, and there's always interest for Upstate band kids to do it.Scooch, curious how the band is doing numbers wise these days.

I wonder how much longer some of the smallish northeastern private schools will be able to retain any semblance of a big time marching band.
lol everyone on here makes this argument but all of these schools dont have noticeable drops in attendance. Cuse went from awful to god awful so its not apples to apples, people.Wildhack gets it. Winning helps, but it doesn't cure all. Even Alabama is seeing a drop in attendance (maybe they're spoiled?). He provided really good insight. If Syracuse University can figure out a way to lower concession prices like the Atlanta Falcons, they make money hand over fist.
