It just doesn't seem like an on campus stadium when you look at walking under the interstate to get there but to be fair GSU just doesn't look like what I think of as a college campus. It may just be in my head but urban campuses are probably a harder sell to recruits and their families. Talking to people involved in recruiting over the years I would think that signing JC athletes and basketball recruits are the best bet for such a campus.

I am admittedly biased towards "college towns" after sharing a conference with UNT and the F_Us for years.

I know the 2D map looks confusing. The highways go below via tunnels. Pedestrians walk above. If you don't want to walk, GSU buses are always roaming around.

Everyone has preferences. I wanted to live and breath the city life so I chose Georgia State over UGA in Athens. As for recruiting, I think you may be overthinking about the urban vs. rural aspect. Kids care about coaching, new shiny facilities, and the quality of degrees. If anything, I would assume that 18yrs old with newfound independence from their parents would prefer the hopping club scenes in the big city.
I am not overthinking it. I have spoken to a lot of people who have done it and I know there are drawbacks to having an urban campus. College towns have bar hopping too and the bars are full of mostly college students while parents often prefer a bit smaller town for their child's first time on their own. Most of the larger urban schools just don't draw the same support from the community either or at least it isn't visible because of everything else going on. It's why schools like SMU, UNT, FIU, UAB, etc. don't draw well at all despite having FAR more potential customers an supporters in the immediate vicinity.

Man you are all over the place! lol. Are you arguing about recruiting or attendance smack?

Not sure why you cannot follow along but I don't know how long you have been following these things. Attendance and community support are a big part of recruiting. We are getting further into the weeds of the differences in an urban campus and a college town now. As you said facilities, coaching, prestige are all factors as well. No one thing is going to be the sole determinant for recruiting success and winning is naturally the biggest factor no matter where you are located.

It isn't "smack". It's just how the world works.

Exactly. It all depends on if you are a long time investor or looking to make a quick buck.

UCF and other AAC "city schools" seems to be doing just fine.

The AAC is largely an urban league so someone has to win it. They are 10-19 in bowl games.

Give me a league of the college towns from the SBC and CUSA vs. one comprised of the urban programs if I am building a new league.

These are the same people trying to buy bit coin right now..and not years ago...There is not a better buy stock in the Belt.

For those that understand investing a little

Buy GSU, GS, ULM, USA, ULM, CCU Because all will likely be better to varying degrees. GS with the most potential to improve the most best ROI likely.

Hold ArkSt, Troy Will likely stay the same TXST because you dont lose until you sell just hold and pray.

Sell App Will be mighty impressed if they maintain through seniors and coaches lost but see a step back.

Agree on the pros and con's with urban vs semi rural, suburban or rural, (most college towns are not considered rural btw), but GT has an actual urban campus your interpretation of campus for GaSt is stretching at best...Nobody outside of GSU people consider that area GSU's "campus". I will check it out again but last time I was down in that area I just happened to look up to see a GSU logo on a building if it was not there you would never know you were on GSU's "campus". With the development of the stadium area that will look more like GSU's actual campus than the loose collection of buildings on the other side of 75/85 and 20.

You see, my young alum brother, THIS is what I was subtly fishing for. The original comment was no ordinary uniformed comment about our “across town” remodeled stadium. It was the posters way of showing disdain for our program not looking like the other SBC schools that his school is firmly affixed to. The same way my oversimplification of our virtues was my way of letting him know that we are indeed more in line with Memphis, Houston, SMU, Tulane, UCF, USF, Cincinnati, and Temple: schools that GSU in Atlanta can aspire to join that those in towns with No Sales on Sunday cannot. What it really comes down to is Arkansas State is at the top of the conference and has been for a while and that wolf will bite whoever tries to move past them in the football pecking order. Unfortunately for them, I think that 3/4 of the conference is taking huge steps forward.
For me? I buy Texas State. My money is still on them to blow this mother out if they can ever start winning consistently.

Some ,arguably less confident, students find comfort in major metro U. For this reason I'm selling Ga state and forgoing any short term gain for the benefit of long term stability.05-ban

lets see.....since I spent a lot of summers in Manhattan, closest example I can describe is NYU and Columbia in NYC. In Manhattan downtown, the New York University's buildings are merged in the fabric of everything else; you can't really tell where NYU starts and ends, but you know that downtown is dominated by NYU infrastructures, faculties, and students. In contrast, like Georgia Tech, Columbia in uptown is more isolated within the confines of brick walls; indeed, they have a pretty little campus that seems to ignore the busy NYC life right outside the walls. Both NYC and Columbia are fine academic institutions. Yet, no one in the North have negative perceptions toward the NYU's campus (or Boston U or Georgetown) for being interwoven with the surrounding urban environment.

People just need to get out of the mindset that "traditional campus is a necessity for quality 4-year universities." Just throw that prejudice away guys! lol. I think some people have trouble with erasing the stereotype that college campuses must be isolated from the world.

The same way my oversimplification of our virtues was my way of letting him know that we are indeed more in line with Memphis, Houston, SMU, Tulane, UCF, USF, Cincinnati, and Temple: schools that GSU in Atlanta can aspire to join that those in towns with No Sales on Sunday cannot. What it really comes down to is Arkansas State is at the top of the conference and has been for a while and that wolf will bite whoever tries to move past them in the football pecking order. Unfortunately for them, I think that 3/4 of the conference is taking huge steps forward.
For me? I buy Texas State. My money is still on them to blow this mother out if they can ever start winning consistently.

haha..I was thinking something similar.

I think...people are bias toward what they prefer....and show disdain for things that are outside of their comfort zone. He likes rural towns. No big deal.

Or maybe if GSU actually has fans that show up regularly in proportion to its alumni base going forward it would help Sun Belt fans and their perceptions.

I’m not a Louisiana Tech fan; I’m actually a Georgia & a Troy fan who used to have high hopes for you guys, but not too long ago I saw the infamous handwriting on the wall about ULM and that is why I “sell” ULM.

The reason I would "sell" on ULM is because of the budget you guys operate on. I just don't see how ULM football can ever grow into a consistently viable program on such a shoestring budget. I do give you guys credit for staying as competitive as you do against schools with much more to work with. Still, I think it'll get harder and harder for you guys to maintain that competitiveness as I just don't see ULM increasing its athletic budget anytime soon.

Viator was a great hire and a heck of a bargain. You usually can't get much of a head coach for $350K these days, and I think he's a very good coach. Your AD did well with this hire. Good luck replicating it once someone hires Viator away.

RE: Sun Belt Stock watch 2017
Strong Buy: GS (this is a least a 2 bagger, some risk but huge upside[/i])

Buy: GSU, LA (strong investments made into the programs and good future growth YOY for GSU and LA is at a low so I see an up swing)

Hold: stAte, USA, CCU (I don't see much movement either way and will wait and see)

Short: App, Troy (going to short these 2 just because the bar is set so high and there is a decent chance they slip a little, but will buy back later at a lower costs for the good dividend yield)

Sell: ULM, TxSt (sorry, but I don't see much improvement and little potential)

Technically he makes 400k but I get your point.

Right on. Why not ARKST though? It's not like they were great this year. Plenty room for improvement and I think most of them would agree with me. OOC looks manageable.

RE: Sun Belt Stock watch 2017
I’m saying relative to the conference they are top 3

You may put a hold on them but to buy any of those 3 doesn’t make sense—Hold maybe but not buy

Just like us bottom 3 why sell you can’t go any lower put a Hold if you are unsure if improvement isn’t possible
