ROONEY IS THE SMALLEST FIELD IN FBS AND FCS

Division 2 Edinboro is LAUGHING AT THE SIZE OF OUR DIVISION I FIELD!!!
PLAY A GAME OR TWO AT HIGHMARK!!!

THIS IS EMBARRASSING AND I WILL NEVER AGAIN TAKE FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO A FIELD THAT IS BUSH NEXT TO THEIR HIGH SCHOOL FIELD!!!   THIS FIELD SUCKS!!!! 

Highmark is a beautiful field that faces the city that will attract recruits and fans.

Highmark is a Soccer Stadium, not sure that it is available for college football.  It would make sense to seek some kind of long-term solution to the stadium problem but unless they can upgrade Rooney the options seem very limited.

Why in the world would you allow the football team go out and play two programs clearly above Duquesnes talent in back to back games.Duquesne takes in a lot of money for these beat downs but they also endanger the lives of of our players when they are outmatched in size,speed and depth.Either upgrade the program,by offering more schlarships,enlarging and improving the football stadium or drop it down to a Division 3 level so our players can compete against others with comparable skills.Keep playing
teams like WVU and sooner somebodys going to be paralyzed or suffer a neurologic brain injury.

You are not allowed to drop to Division 3.   Division 1 schools must play FCS football or don’t play football. 

If you don’t play football you would have to add at least two men’s teams because you need a minimum of six with football or 7 men’s teams if you don’t have football. Dropping football would require two additional men’s teams to be added.

Central Catholic used to play select big games there.  The Riverhounds became good and they were told to find some place new.
