    I suspect IUP will bring a very large crowd (by D2 road game standards). For typically having a pretty dead home crowd, IUP generally has a lively road crowd. Figure that one out.

    I suppose those willing to travel are more vested in the program. On the road they all sit together and it has a snowball effect.

    I'll probably make the long haul to Kutztown for the opener. Both of those first two, actually.
    Especially if my big mouth is in the stands!

      Just go in October and see the colored foliage and all the Trump 2020 signs in people's yards.

        Indiana is the 'big city' in these parts ... if that tells you anything. LOL.

          I've found that the better and more passionate fans tend to be in visiting venues. I think that's true for all sports at all levels. You see that with the Steelers and Penguins all the time. Lots of transplanted Pittsburghers plus others willing to travel. It's a ton of fun going to Nationwide Arena to see the Penguins play the Blue Jackets. I get such a better vibe from the Penguins fans I interact with there because they bought the tickets. PPG Paints has a corporate feel. Heinz Field doesn't intimidate visitors. Large road crowds can get rowdy. Sometimes rowdier than at home.

            The last time I heard this, it was Alabama. Do you northerners think all southern states are the same?! /s

                • It could be Indiana.

                    Times are a changin' as they say. The South is flourishing. Only us idiots still live up here.

                      Yeah much of the rural south is hanging in by a thread. I’ll stay along the Northeast Corridor.

                      BTW the Ruby Tuesday in Indiana got nailed by the health inspector s for not having a dishwasher that was sanitizing the plates and silverware. Just sayin...

                        The rural north is hanging on by a thread, too. I'm referring to places like Charlotte, Raleigh, etc. Places are boomin'.

                          One of our freedoms that is sometimes overlooked is the freedom to pick up and move.

                          • For any of you hardcore football-only fans ... the IUP men's and women's basketball teams both won the West and are both currently ranked No. 1 in the Atlantic Region. It's a real good time to hop on the bandwagon.

                              Southeastern PA seems to be moving along...I’ll stay.

                                Wouldn’t it be lovely if they could go all the way and sweep the Natty’s..much to the IUP haters dismay.

                                Its nice to dream.
