Look at it any way you want, but SUNY Cortland is profiting more from hosting the Jets than UAlbany is from hosting the Giants.

"Maybe in hindsight perhaps Albany might have wanted to look at the contract again with the Giants," said DeForest R. Hinman, a UAlbany graduate. Now working as a research analyst for a $300 million investment fund in Clifton Park, Hinman helps the UAlbany Student Investment Group with endowment funds.

I have never been to Jets' camp at Cortland. I have been to Giants' camp at UAlbany, and it is a no-frills, all football experience. The contract seems to be the same, and it seems to be good enough for UAlbany.
