    The misguided feeling of superiority by Siena and its fans sickens me. I hope we don't give in to them. I'm fine not playing them this season.

    I hear we are quickly approaching the drop-date on this game and at this point this game is unlikely to continue. Good, proud of Benson finally standing his ground. Good luck Siena getting someone else to come in and bring 10k people.

    Cuomo is the fraud of a governor that allowed this to go on including dismemberment of UAlbany...apparently clever enough to insulate himself. To bad he isn't sitting behind bars.

    I have a hard time watching it. The rules are so different than the men's game that its barely recognizable as the same sport. You can't say that about WBB or WSOC for example. So maybe that's why. They certainly are talented and dedicated athletes, but the game to me is dull.

    Could not agree more. I often travel back to Albany for the game. No way will I do that any longer unless it is home and home. With any luck, their new coach will be another disaster.

    I’d love to see atleast a 8 or 9 player rotation with no one over 32 minutes.

    I’d rather have too many good players competing for those 200 minutes a game than not enough. Basically any kid good enough to earn a D1 scholarship was a star player in HS. Those that rise to the top get the bulk of the minutes in college. Those that are willing to put ego and preconceptions aside become solid role players and prosper. Those that are unwilling to accept a lesser role or can read the tea leaves and see that they are in over their heads and won’t see much playing time will move on. It’s the way it has to be. I, for one, am really excited to see which ones rise to the top this year and if some players can’t accept that they will have diminished roles, so be it.

    This to me seems like a stretch in terms of worry...last year we all thought the same thing. What happened? Clark got in and couldn't do anything, Conway and Cohrain looked lost and couldn't really play at this level thus transferred down. This may shock some folks...but not everyone one of the kids brought in this season will pan out. The goal is to build competition, let them go at each other and EARN time...some will excel and some won't. Not worried! Just worried that we find enough guy in the excel group that can play.

    For the record, I do not wish him well, in fact I wish him nothing...this man quit on the school, his coach that recruited him and he spoke glowingly about and his teammates. If folks here want to carry on like he didn't quit on the #purplefam...go for it. As for me, I wish him nothing! #snake

    We made it to the final four this year! Do we think we need to tear down the UA program because of one kid's decision? Hell no! Every program needs to evolve, each year things are tweaked for one reason or another. I don't think his transfer says anything about a lack of structure and discipline. If anyone's transfer in or out gives the coaching staff ideas on bettering the program, so be it.... that's how running a sports program works. Someone said that 'jonesy' was mentioned in the stands by parents, saying he's a heck of a faceoff guy, and from the stats, it looks like Altimari has a 70percent high school fo rate, played football, and wrestled. I really don't want to hear any former player's name here anymore. It's getting old.

    I didn't know where to put this so I figured I'd start a thread to follow updates on Connors status and career going forward. In this article they talk about why Fields has not had surgery yet and why he is playing right now. http://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/mock-draft-update-connor-fields-knee-and-timeline-a-sniper-joins-the-half-dozen/52604

    Commissioner's Cups are great for our athletic dept as a whole. Problem is no one besides us cares about that. Siena is about one sport and one sport only...men's basketball. If they were allowed to cut all sports except for that they'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Have to admit, I'm not as sold on Flory as other people seem to be. I'm much more wait and see but I'll be happy to be wrong about him. To me, guys who already know our system have an advantage coming in so it wouldn't surprise me to see Clark and Healy in the back court. I thought Clark was as talented as anyone we put on the court last year so he was kind of a mystery.

    Why does Campbell have a 'guaranteed starting spot'? Perhaps he does, but two years ago he was better than he was last year.

    I was trying to wrap my head around the lineup for the coming season, but frankly it is a fools errand. We seem to get it wrong every year. People we bring in that were hyped sit the bench (example: Cochran), and people we know nothing about excel (Example: Singletary/Sanders). I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the starting 5 on day 1 be: PG: Clark SG: Flory Wing: Campbell Forward: Lulka Center: French First off the bench: Healy, deSousa, Lauderdale, Brooks 9 would be one of the bigger rotations we have had. Miller wouldn't come unless he could get minutes and Brown likes defense. Supposedly Hank has become a defensive force as well, but needs work on the offensive end. Rizzuto and Starks are both touted. Not going to be an easy job. Could be an incredible season, or a rebuilding disappointment. but again, who knows at this point. The good thing is that it looks like only Campbell is guaranteed a starting spot. Everything else will be a battle for minutes. These types of battles can many times improve a team greatly.

    I wasn't trying to say it was a 1:1 match, I am simply saying Marr tends to err on the side of "He gave us 2 great years". I don't think it has been mentioned here yet but TD wanted to leave after his freshman year, and Marr asked him to stick it out one more year and if he still wasn't happy then he could go. Despite him not being highly recruited and all of that jazz, at the end of the day it wasn't the right fit for the kid. It is no different than a company hiring a kid fresh out of college, giving him a signing bonus, training and all that and the kid leaves because he got a better job offer or whatever. As far as my person situation, and there are two sides to every story but essentially we started 0-5 and Marr called me into his office and said "We need to light a fire under this team so you are going to be suspended for the next 3 games until we start our conference play." I said, "Truck no" and took the position that it was up to him to realize how ridiculous that was and despite the captains lobbying for my return he did not budge. There is more to the story on Marr's end as to what he was going through off the field but I won't speak to that. During my time at Albany, my freshman year I experienced the type of program that is described today, during my soph and junior years it was much closer to what you would think of Hopkins. A lot of negative reinforcement, a lot of running as punishment, and a lot of discipline..which coming from a life of playing West Genesee lax year round, didn't really phase me but it definitiely put a negative vibe around the team. As far as why I transferred to St. Rose...I was going to head to Syracuse with Cometti however they were offering 50% scholarship and I was graduating with my accounting degree and heading to grad school for my MBA so I opted to go play for Liam Gleason at St Rose who was just starting their program. Liam went back to UA before St Rose had their first practice but by that time I was comfortable with my decision. With 25 freshman and myself as a 5th year, we went 8-8 in the hardest conference in d2 and beat a top 10 team... which as you can tell is something I am proud of.

    I am holding my tongue on all this butt kissing to TD. I am sorry but I think it is a bunch of crap and I can not swallow that much of a load. I have bled purple for the many years since I played at UA. I think is shows a total lack of loyalty to the school, his coaches and the team mates at UA. Sorry but some of you are WAY too touchy feely. I won't tell you what I would say to him if I had a chance. I can't listen to it anymore and will stay away for a while. Screw him!

    Playing an out of conference team twice in one year does not make sense to me regardless of the rivalry. Home and home like all mid major scheduling or move on. It's that simple.

    Just play Siena twice in one year. Once at the TU, and once at SEFCU. The argument that it would diminish the rivalry by playing twice in one year is utter nonsense (i.e., Duke vs NC or Ohio St or Mich St vs Michigan), and two games draws in more fans and money for both schools. So if we play them twice, we might grow fonder of Siena? Is that it? Is there any doubt that we would sell out SEFCU if we played them again in January and dislike their putrid fanbase any less? Please. This is such a simple solution that benefits and solves problems for both schools (we have heard scheduling OOC games is challenging). Adding 2 local games to each school's OOC schedule saves the respective athletic departments money in travel costs too. Play them twice. Do it. As for revenue, they keep their ticket sales and proceeds from their TU concessions and rotting pizzas that they sell, and we keep the proceeds from those dry chicken tenders that Sodexo serves up. Sodexo has come up with some tasty stuff behind the endzone at football games, but the food at SEFCU is for freshmen. Booze and atmosphere in the HOF room is great, but where's the beef? A burger would be ______! When we win the America East this year, I want to look back and say I ate red meat while we did so. I have more confidence in Sodexo than the TU. The TU's food menu is dated like the building's footprint -- namely, 1990 (but I appreciate the renovations and movie screens on Pearl Street; hopefully some eateries and pubs will go in across the street next to the probation department). We win the food round. Returning to the matter at hand, I am sure that both fan bases would rather watch a Siena and Albany game twice than some other game against a low mid-major private school. Colgate? Cornell? Bryant? Columbia? Some NEC or Ivy League school? BU? Patriot League? BORING. Who else will come to the Capital Region? Be honest UA and Siena. Play each other twice (or more). I will dislike them twice as much (or more). Love it.

    Brown has often espoused position-less basketball...it's all the rage in the NBA as well. I don't see 5 PG's...I see 5 or 6 kids that can play the 1 or 2 and some of them can even provide depth at the 3 in spurts.

    I think we are all learning this new feeling of being fans of a high caliber program. This happens when your program grows and your bring in recruits. As fans, we are use to our high profile players being high profile in our eyes, not the nation eyes. We are use to these players staying all 4 years. However, as all the major programs in majors sports, this stuff happens. It terrible, it sucks. We scream about loyalty because we are use to it and we believe in it. However, when you reach higher levels, this happens. I'm angry and upset, but it's not surprising either. It happens in all collegiate sports with major programs. I think we are a little more pissed in this case because it was Yale, who beat UA twice this year and won a national title. That is my take. So we won't retire his number.

    I was sent a private message asking about anything I have heard regarding potential transfers and I haven't. There are still a few names swirling in the air, but I haven't heard any potential schools as to where those guys might wind up. As far as our former FOGO concerns I am tired of hearing about it. It sounds as if the departure has in a weird way reinvigorated the guys who want to be part of the team to work even harder this summer and fall just to show that as someone else said there was a team before TD and there will be a team after his departure. What I have hated most about this entire ordeal is that it has made UA the school and team look like second class citizens and that only our former fogo was the person willing to work hard. Now I don't know if those are his sentiments or just what the lacrosse media has put out there.

    Article in this morning TU. NCAA has made it easier than ever to transfer. Player no longer has to ask for a transfer; only ANNOUNCE that he IS. In conjunction with this, NCAA will enhance no tampering rules. Since twice nothing or 100 times nothing is still nothing; it is going to be a free-for-all. How do you monitor a coach shaking hands with the opponent team and whispering to the opponents star, we could certainly use you. And certainly their is NO WAY to control alumni/etc from encouraging in any number of ways a player to ANNOUNCE and transfer. Also interesting to note the ncaa REFUSED to change the "conditional release/transfer" rules. So all teams including UA are totally allowed and protected from law suits to RESTRICT where a player may transfer to.
