Discussion in 'Football Recruiting' started by HuskyfanDan, Aug 16, 2012.
Heck BCU is closer to NYC than Syracuse.
Here's a brief article which explains SU's advertising in Yankee Stadium and NYC in general. It's just a part of a larger campaign to market it's brand in the city and apparently has been going on for years...who knew?!?
NYC doesn't have a team. Syracuse is one of the teams that has a following there. UConn does. Rutgers does. Notre Dame football does. Penn State football does. Duke basketball does.
If anyone thinks UConn has some sort of lock on top NYC basketball talent they have lost their minds. Dozens of schools have had multiple good players from NYC in the last decade.
What is there to be so upset about?
But nobody would see that banner... unless they looked at Groupon.
That Syracuse has a sign claiming to be New Yorks college team... Do you actually read posts before posting or do you just argue for the sake of arguing?
If you are going to lecture people about reading at least get it right. The OP has nothing about a stupid sign that is hardly new news, it's about Temple being closer to NYC than Syracuse and other trivial nonsense.
As for the sign... Wow an example of
marketing that isn't 100% true. Would you be shocked to learn that Fox News isn't fair and balanced, it's actually quite easy to tell it isn't butter, M&Ms will melt in your hand and barely any champions eat Wheaties for breakfast.
Do you think anyone sees that sign and thinks to themselves: I'm a NY guy, Syracuse is NY's team, so I now roll with Syracuse.
Alright, that was pretty damn funny. I don't care who you are.
kids and parents are getting influenced by this push syracuse is trying to make into the city. i started this thread for a reason that none here know and it has served its purpose.
the random thoughts in me would say uconn is more of nys team than cuse. i bet if u looked at sports rosters we would stack up quite well vs cuse with ny kids #'s and nyc kids #'s.
nyc is exploding with talent in fball and baseball. bball is bball. we will land some of the best and other will get away. for every kemba there will be a noah(yes that ugly as mofo). we are on the verge baseball wise of being top dog in the region and keeping the best prospects home vs the acc/sec. fball is on its way also. its a battle worth fighting if i were uconn between the recruits, short distance which ='s tix sold to games and the tv viewers, there a lot to fight for.
some simple truths in this battle can go a long way for any parent or kid looking at it with level eyes. those eyes will find out that uconn is large and in charge. a sign in yankee stadium is a sign in yankee stadium. its good advertising but also bull . can you take that sign out to dinner and it later? no, its a piece of metal. it wont get u to the nba or the nfl or the mlb. because cuse can't handle that . uconns resume and success speaks for itself without a sign, but the overall false perception cuse has been trying to push down state will not fly with me.
and before so idiot yells hey melo nyc come on man blah blah. the guy was born in nyc and lived in baltimore. stop drinking the knicks coming home bull and wake the up. they just wanted to play that stupid song by p diddy and play it up to no end. didn't that d bag drop the p anyway? hope his son kills it out west. not!
"Methinks thou doth protest too much".
First time posting, live in New York and starting to see increase in football talent last few years, UConn doing nice job, from reading the sites they know all the top players in area, Maxpreps released Preseason NY all state team (attached) and UConn has two commits vs one for Cuse and Huskies have three NY state High school commits vs. two for Cuse (they also have one juco) and have shot for a few more inlcuded some of the rivals top ten from NY who have not committed (attached), so the tide is turning.
Syracuse is irrelevant for FB in NYC and RU is the most relevant FB program in NYC... It's not close...
Rutgers-Louisville TV rating in New York City doubles Syracuse-West Virginia (2011)
Syracuse coach Doug Marrone can make all the claims he wants about the Orange being New York City's football team, but the facts simply aren't there to support that contention.
The latest TV ratings from Friday night's two Big East football games show the Rutgers @Louisville game (RU [5-1], UofL [2-4]) on ESPN2 having more than twice the viewers in New York City than the West Virginia @Syracuse game (#11 WVU [5-1], Syracuse [4-2]) on ESPN, a meeting that featured a ranked team (the Mountaineers). Both games started at 8pm.
Rutgers-Louisville drew a 1.45 share in New York City compared to 0.7 for West Virginia-Syracuse, according to the Nielsen ratings released today.
That rating tied for fourth all-time on ESPN2 for a football game viewed in the New York City area. Rutgers has been involved in all five of the top-rated football games in New York City on ESPN2.
Rutgers has also been part of four of the five highest-rated football games in the New York City area on ESPN.
That list is headed by Rutgers-Louisville in 2006, which drew an 8.1 rating, and includes Rutgers-West Virginia in 2006 (6.04); USC-Ohio State in 2009 (3.74); Rutgers-Cincinnati in 2006 (3.62) and South Florida Rutgers in 2007 (3.35).
Syracuse is not in the top 10 of ESPN's list of the most-viewed college football games in New York City.
You would think Rutgers would nood to win something before it's relevant anywhere.
While it is funny to see a rutgers fan feel the need to reference those numbers dissing syracuse on a UConn board, some of those numbers will probably be part of the BE's presentation to NBC/Fox.

Geez Blitz, do you need to write a book every time you post.
You know... you are the 2nd person to say that to me in the past 2 weeks... I had the same thing said to me on the Arkansas board (Hogville: Monday morning QB http://www.hogville.net/yabbse/index.php?topic=491595.0) where there is a 19 page, 820 post, thread started by RutgersAl... I guess I can get a little carried away when posting...
The funny thing is, it hasn't been nessecary if you look at the numbers... All that was needed was an annual bowl team to get those results... We actually win something of substance (BCS game) and we'll have the NYC and Philly DMAs eating out of the palm of our hand BETTER then what we had in 2006...
Here is the NYC and Philly DMAs for your reference...

I understand. Must be why the Big Ten continues to beg you guys to come on board.
Oh, btw, win something, anything..........just for the of it......
