I'm sure recruits are not impressed when they see the stands compared to their high school stadiums. Going there with friends doesn't feel like a real college game particularly when they also then cut the marching band. Halftime was a guy, a dog, and a frisbee.
I know that there is an advantage playing on campus but unless they make Rooney into more than a practice field we aren't going to attract more fans for a real college experience.
I suggest we play at least one game at Highmark stadium, possibly the Robert Morris game there as we play Pitt at PPG each year. Himark is a showpiece of a small but "big league" stadium.
See what the games attract there. The shuttle bus trip from campus is short and celebrating on the south side after is a consideration.
I'll start a poll.
