I will feel sorry for the Jets if they select Utica College. The AD is the real president since Todd Hutton only does what that tool for AD says. They do not have one coach that really understands the sports. Plus, the coach's statement made a nice powerpoint presentation - is he for real??

And, so where were the locals when this all started? The Syracuse papers had this weeks before possibly going to Cortland. Seems like the local officials were a little slow out of the gate again. This is typical of the local leaders. Never late for a free lunch though.

I work at the college in an area that would be greatly impacted if the Jets were to have the training camp there and UC was NOWHERE near equipped to handle a professional sports team for any extended length of time.

Apparently you've never been to a fancy hotel because the new RESIDENCE HALLS are not like "six star hotels." They're nice. Period. Did you ever think for a moment that someone might have already reserved some space in the residence halls? Three words: "teenagers" and "Air France."

You don't know the score. After reading this post, I highly doubt you know much of anything.

Now that's funny - RoAnn actually accomplishing something.

Here's a quiz - name something meaningful Ms Destito has accomplished? She's always been in the majority, backed Shelly at the expense of Upstate and she has big Democratic connections. Anyone got anything??

Fatso got the liquor license secured at the turning stone for her husband. That's an accomplishment.
