    By contrast, just to name a few examples:

    It costs $26,000 - $30,000 to attend CalU of PA. https://www.collegesimply.com/colleg...ylvania/price/

    It costs $25,000 - $29,000 to attend Edinboro. https://www.collegesimply.com/colleg...ylvania/price/

    So, if you are a legit D2 football player, even if IUP, Cal or Edinboro won't give you a full scholly, are you going to Seton Hill or IUP? Seton Hill or Cal? Seton hill or Edinboro?
    Few full scholarships are given out in D2 or the PSAC. The dollar amounts don't really matter. If it's been reported that Seton Hill gives the equivalent of 25 scholarships, they give the equivalent of 25 scholarships, which is way more than most of the schools in the conference.

    You ARE NOT going to Seton Hill unless you are getting a VERY HUGE chunk of academic merit money along with the athletic scholarship!

    I see the bill when I pay it every semester. Tuition , room and board is 21-23k per semester before any academic and athletic money is passed out. Many student/athletes do get academic money along with athletic money but of the 90 guys on the FB roster I would guess approx 1/2 get academic money. SHU can give more money but in reality what a student/athlete actually is responsible for paying is not that far apart in many cases from a State School.

    If your scenario of $22k per year was accurate with the money they give out, the private schools would have a true recruiting advantage (like everyone thinks they have now).

    It is a good education. But ... let's not worry about the boring stuff.

    Clarion (D-II – PA): Per source, former Seton Hill (D-II – PA) offensive coordinator Charles Eger is the new offensive coordinator at Clarion.

    If he's going to leave Seton Hill ... he's not heading to Clarion. Any top D2 team would take him in a heartbeat. He's also a 'full ride' recruit (should he hit the market). I can't see Clarion giving any player a full ride with their budget. One full ride is a huge piece of the pie there. Perhaps they could get creative with funds from other places.

    This is a great hire for Clarion, as a coordinator and on the recruiting front. He's proven he can drive results from day one, which is something that Clarion desperately needs on the offensive side of the ball.

    I think he's headed to Rice.

    Saw in the Erie paper this morning the Edinboro WVB coach was awarded $219,000 to cover her legal fees -- increasing the total payout to $469,000.

    Rice is lower-level D1. I think.

    Much like sitting out bowl games has become a trend, this D2 to D1 jump may be come a lot more common.

    It sure will suck when it happens to your team. The grad transfer has changed football and basketball.

    The kicker from Assumption went to LSU this year and became a star ... hitting that giant, last-second FG to beat Auburn. We'll see where Fletcher ends up if he leaves Edinboro. Brown has left Seton Hill.

    Rice is FCS Level Football. They are in Conference USA, with teams like UAB and Florida Atlantic.

    And other sports e.g. wrestling. It reduces the incentive to redshirt the athlete. If you think you are putting them on course for a "5-year program" and they graduate in 4 there is a good chance they will leave for that 5th year. In a lot of cases it actually benefits the athlete.

    And they are at the bottom of that conference. They were 2-11 this year with wins over Old Dominion and Prairie View A & M (FCS). They lost to UTEP which had the longest losing streak in FBS at the time. That made Rice the leader in consecutive losses to FBS teams. Then they beat Old Dominion in the final game. ODU just became FBS a couple years ago.

    So ... it will be a step up in wins for him.

    ooooh we could start a new argument: Play for crappy team or ride the bench on a good one. We could merge with the recruiting thread.
