I'm not sure that attendance at football games really backs up that observation. Am I mistaken?

My bad I didn't make it clear that I was looking at it from the recruiting angle.  I've always wondered why they don't draw better for football games particularly now that they have gotten so much better.

I'm not sure anyone said anything about attendance (of fans). The question, I think, had to do with recruiting and knowing what's needed to be done to make practice, walking across campus or bussing/driving.
;)

I mean... for athletes... who are usually in shape... a walk across campus must be a brutal deal breaker.  ;) ;D

Uhh let's see, I've gone to classes, practice for 2-2.5  hours, showered, so my head is all wet, now let's walk across this bridge over a river in the dark at 7:00, at say 15 degrees, maybe icy, maybe slushy.... yes, I might ask about that bus...  and yes it could rest in my decision making process... ;)
Of course, I guess the Fox isn't exactly the Mississippi... ;D

Ah, but alas!
Such a journey might be of little consequence and entirely worth whatever effort is necessary.............................. ....


It seems the esteemed Lawrence University has what is referred to as Gender- Neutral Housing. This is a Residential Life policy option which allows persons of difference genders to occupy the same room in certain designated dormitories. Accordingly, a comely lass or brawny lad may be waiting to provide comfort and warmth after such a perilous journey through inhospitable conditions. 👫 😮 😛 😁

Looks like it's time to jump in the Time Machine and point it in the direction of Appleton.  ;D
No such policy during my college days back in the Dark Ages. 🙁


SOLD!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Colleges students viewed the notion of gender quite differently back in the dark ages too.

You might be a little surprised to find out just how students are utilizing the gender-neutral housing.

No worries. I whiffed on that. :)

Best stories from older alumni (think 1950s) are the ones that involve certain rooms having an expectation to leave a window open for late night returns. There have always been ways to work around gender separation.

Back in the day my dorm room was on the first floor, in a corner very close to an exit door.  My roommate was gone a lot of weekends and my girlfriend at the time was also on campus.  My room was gender neutral relatively often.   ;D

My first year at college was on a gender-mixed dorm. Every other room was a different gender on the same floor. No big deal, honestly.

For whatever it is worth Lawrence has ten first-year players coming to school this fall. On top of nine last year one wonders if they have enough uniforms...

They may not need as many uniforms as you might think.
I don't know if LU follows the policy, but some schools have only a certain number of varsity uniforms. Let's say its 15. If there are 23 kids on the team, the top 15 are designated as the varsity, and the remaining 8 as the JV team. When the JVs play, they wear the team's old uniforms-the set the varsity wore before they got their new (current) uniforms.
Its nice when every kid on the team has a new uniform. But, some schools might be reluctant to spend money on an extra 7-12 new uniforms just so the JV team can look dazzling in front of the 50 or so people who might show up for a JV game.

New uniforms are overrated.  They're used infrequently so the 3 year old uniforms don't really show any signs of wear and you have a 50/50 shot of the new uniforms being worse in design or comfort.

At the half
UWEC 32
SNC 38

SNC was up 20-16. Pushed to 12, but then EC got it back to 4 just before the half.
