    For the uninitiated...what is COLA? Google just keeps showing me a soda.
  2. New Word Mark and Team store

    OH SNAP! IT DOES. When the hell did that happen!? http://albany.bncollege.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Nike_Replica_Football_Jersey/ProductDisplay?parentCatId=40360&imageId=1331467&level=&graphicId=J000251UNAL52M&categoryId=40425&catalogId=10001&langId=-1&storeId=19071&productId=400000320639&topCatId=40000 Sucks it's only #44. But I might have to scoop this even though I always wanted #3 (my number).
  3. New Word Mark and Team store

    As someone who is into web design and design in general as a hobby...I think the font is fine. Could it better? Sure. Is it the worst font known to man? No way. That being said, like Click, I'd LOVE to get an authentic replica FB and maybe MBB jersey but they sell smocks or nothing at all. Heck, I had to get my fitted UAlbany cap on eBay from a total 3rd party for Pete's sake. I also bought UAlbany mini FB helmets for my office on eBay because, again, not sold by the school or athletic department. I currently work from home so not a big deal but if I ever go back to working in an office I definitely want EVERYONE to know who/what UA is and quite literally, that's barely possible. Whoever signed that stupid contract limiting what the actual Athletic Dept. can sell vs what the bookstore can sell was an idiot. When is that dumb contract up?
  4. UMBC

    Wow. What a year for them. Nearly made the sweet 16!
  5. 2018 Bracket Challange

    Wow. UNC AND Cinci going down? That's a wrap for my bracket. This year has been a TOTAL toss up. EDIT: I guess it changed again cause Bob and Click have the most possible points now.

    I'm tied for the cellar with Popeye, but unlike him, I have the most possible points still achievable. #imcominforyall

    Brown isn't the issue. We are LUCKY to have him. I hope he stays as long as Ford did. But I hope, generally speaking, the university/AD continue to give him the tools to succeed (read: update SEFCU!).

    This is why I 'crush' David as someone said and have zero reservations about doing so. The dude is now a senior. He is a captain. And he is the one being consoled by teammates or being handled with kid gloves instead of being the one to lead his men. He's probably top 5 in talent/ability in UA history. So...he is NOT 'just a kid playing basketball'. Me shooting hoops outside 10 years ago is. He's 21/22 now. Time to act like it. Most players of his level are likely looking to play basketball in Europe or something for the next 10 years. That is to say, they aspire to be professionals. But he can't even manage to be a leader or captain as an upperclassmen. I don't blame Brown at all. Not even .01%. We saw the kid Brown recruited last year. The kid that showed up this year was probably as much of a surprise to Brown as he was too us. Well, no one came out and said what Trpcic said, so who knows...
  9. Athletic Budget

    So we actually made money in 2016? I thought our level of program always lost money. That's great news!
  10. 2017-18 Season

    I got to think this helps AE recruits just slightly across the board. Makes the whole conference look good.
  11. UMBC

    Whoever runs UMBC's twitter is good. I lol'ed. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/22800525/umbc-epic-ncaa-tournament-upset-eyes-twitter-handle
  12. UMBC

    This. If him winning the AE in 2 years wasn't enough impetus, him setting history as the first team to beat a #1 will have people stalking him at home. Dude is good as gone from UMBC unless he is happy there like Brown is at UA and doesn't care about other opportunities (per se).
  13. 2017-18 Season

    I agree that UMBC has stolen a LOT of our thunder...but we still have a MUCH MUCH better history of excellence than them. It's not even close. They are the Cinderella right now...we'll see how the rest of this decade goes for them.
  14. 2017-18 Season

    I think you're overreacting. Brown is still one of the top 3 coaches in the AE IMO (up there with Becker and Odom). He just got stuck with a bum (at least this year) in Nichols who COMPLETELY derailed UA's season with his petulance and other flaws (I don't need to beat that dead horse anymore). We all knew coming into the year that this team would go where Nichols took it. And he took us nowhere. This is his team for better or worse and he didn't lead it. If he comes back next year and plays like he did in 2016-2017, we'll be fine. If he lays another egg like he did this year...Brown will retool with the likes of Healy, Rizzuto, etc. the follow year. Our future bigs (Hanks, Lulka, whoever else they bring in) look fine...as do our guards (Cremo for one more year, Healy, Rizzuto). And there is rumor that we're recruiting Cremo's heir apparent. Future is bright. Definitely not doom and gloom. We'll be fine. This year wasn't our year. It was UMBC's. It is what it is.
