SORT BY Relevancy
The latest Seton Hall Sports Poll, which polled 771 Americans (by landline and cellphone across the nation), was unveilved on January 28, 2016. With the Super Bowl coming right as the presidential primary season “kicks off,” Americans said they were following the presidential contests by more than a 2-to-1 margin over football, with 60% choosing the political contests, and 24% the Super Bowl. 53% say the political races will be the most competitive, compared to 37% naming the Super Bowl.
The reasons for watching the Super Bowl are of course, varied. 40% said it was best explained because they were football fans, with 19% saying they were a fan of one of the participating teams, 18% saying it was a “big event,” and 10% interested in the commercials. Only 2% said it was primarily because they had a bet on the game, although in another question, 13% said they participated in wagering on the game.
Peyton Manning, whose name emerged recently as having been sent human growth hormones (the report was on Al Jazeera and was recanted by the source), was the subject of a question on whether that report changed opinions about him. (During the polling period, the NFL announced it would investigate the charges). A significant 11% said they thought “less favorably” of him, and 76% said it had no effect.
Pete Rose, who will be inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this year, was the subject of two questions, the first asking whether that was appropriate - to which 47% said yes, 33% no. The second asked if he should be eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to which 56% said yes, 28% no.
The Seton Hall Sports Poll has been conducted regularly since 2006.

Established in 2006, the Seton Hall Sports Poll is the nation's only college-based poll addressing issues of the day from the world of sports.
Sponsored by The Sharkey Institute and emanating from the college's renowned Still School of Business, the poll has surveyed the nation's populous on matters of interest, such as PED use, gambling, public funding, payments to college athletes, effectiveness of sports officials, popularity of key sports figures, and much more.
As colleges like Marist and Quinnipiac survey political questions, Seton Hall provides valuable insights for sponsors, governmental leaders, sports officials and fans.'
The poll meets all criteria for polling standards, including wide spread use of cellphone calling, which makes certain to include younger people in the samplings. The call are randomly dialed across the country and weighted as required to deliver accepted standard results, usually with a 3-4% margin of error.
The poll is directed by Rick Gentile, former Vice President of CBS Sports and a member of the Seton Hall faculty. Rick began his career at the Elias Sports Bureau, his first immersion into the statistics that are sports.

His family lived in farm territory north of Syracuse and he grew up around the corner from his grandparents’ dairy farm, where he spent a great deal of time dodging cows and chores as well as he was able.

In 1978 he published his first book, The Foolish Giant, a picture book illustrated by his wife, Katherine. Since then he has published over 100 books for children and young adults, from picture books to young adult novels.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Coach Karen Hall will interview Former Pitt Basketball Star Pitt Woman's Coach Pitt Assistant AD Kirk Bruce.
In his current capacity, Bruce oversees the day-to-day operations of men's and women's soccer, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's track and field, women's tennis and softball.
More recently, Bruce helped guide the softball team to two back-to-back Big East Championships, where they upset then-No. 25 South Florida in the opening round in 2006. He also had a hand in the women's tennis team making a trip to Tampa, Fla., for the conference championships, while the women's soccer team set a school record for season wins last year.
Bruce was instrumental in leading the women's track and field program to three Big East titles and four consecutive ECAC outdoor titles. Additionally, Bruce oversaw the Pitt baseball team which finished as the runner-up in the Big East in 2004.
Bruce previously served as the Panthers' head women's basketball coach for 13 years from 1985-1998. His coaching career was highlighted by the 1992-93 season in which the Panthers produced their first 20-win season (21-10) and finished third in the Women's National Invitation Tournament. Bruce coached numerous Big East All-Conference players and two Kodak All-America honorable mention players in Jonna Huemrich and Lorri Johnson.
A standout starting point guard at Pittsburgh from 1971-75, Bruce was a member of the Panthers' 1974 team that finished 25-4 and advanced to the East Regional finals. He was drafted by the Utah Stars of the former American Basketball Association (ABA). When the league disbanded, he returned to Pittsburgh to begin his coaching career as an assistant for the Panthers. Bruce was later promoted to the head coaching position prior to the 1985-86 season.
