I would argue that either facility would be a fraction of the cost and isn't aimed at bringing in more revenue (although I do think soccer would bring in a decent amount more in terms of attendance with a nicer place.) SHU is spending $60 mil on a facility that is single use. Most of the big programs average about four, maybe four and a half thousand people per game at about $20. Assuming SHU puts even half that many people in the seats at that price and you're generously looking at brining in only 1 mil a year. SHU averages less fans at games than Alabama-Huntsville. This feels like a pretty dumb move. Granted, it's a Bobby Valentine original so....yeah. My broader point is that it's annoying to watch smaller schools on probably similar budgets have a bigger mentality and commitment to building the facilities needed to recruit than Mason.
