    College Team should be from one of New York's Public Universities.

      That area of New York is sort of symbolic of the rust belt. The University is one of the main drivers of employment there.  Whether this is a "good" project versus spending 200 million elsewhere in the State is probably dubious. But the area needs enhancement and it's an odd criticism to say that a Governor shouldn't care about a large metro area in his State.

        in this economy, as long as we are not pulling money from elsewhere (again no idea), 200 million to dig holes is a benefit.

          Cuomo should care about Syracuse. Syracuse should NOT be promoting themslves as New York's College team, and the State shouldn't give SU a dime for the dome.
