I'm at Penn, and went to the game against Binghamton earlier this season... they have just one player, a freshman, who resembles a D1 basketball player. I have a bunch of friends who go to Bing too; I'm from NY so my school sends a lot of kids there each year.
I go to Sarah Lawrence College. Our coach is still in his 20's. And I have friends who go to Binghamton. Not sure how they're doing this year, but the last couple years have been horrendous over there. I think they were riding a 50+ game losing streak at one point.
Binghamton never recovered from their scandal 4-5 years ago. No NCAA violations, but they recruited players of questionable character and had to dismiss 5 of them from the team. The coach was fired as well.
Interestingly, the SUNY chancellor who oversaw this was Nancy Zimpher. Previously, she was the president at Cincinnati who forced out Bob Huggins. Ironically, when Binghamton moved to D1, they changed their mascot to Bearcats, the same as Cincinnati
