    Don’t know how state funding works, but with UB winning yesterday do they have any edge in receiving more state funds towards their facilities since they won an NCAA game?

    https://amp.usatoday.com/amp/378291002 Base over bonus Albany's Will Brown has no team-performance-based incentive bonuses prescribed in his contract. A previous version of Brown’s agreement included 12 such provisions, occupying the equivalent of three single-spaced pages, under which he could receive a maximum of $241,500 in bonuses. For the 2014-15 season, when those provisions were still in effect, Brown’s base salary was $301,660. Under a new contract that took effect in August 2016, Brown’s base salary is now $350,000. “When (athletics department officials) negotiated the current contract they took into consideration the bonuses he had been attaining and added them to his base salary; therefore eliminating the bonus structure in lieu of a market base salary," Albany records access officer Lisa Taylor said. "So he is now receiving more of a guaranteed base.”

    There’s no question. UB did catch fire with the three which is usually the way mids have a chance at the upset. Either way it was impressive.

    And to the UB poster that used to come here and troll congratulations. I’m officially envious of your b-ball program
  5. 2018 Bracket Challange

    Clean program or not give me a win in the tournament. No one around the country cares about their previous players getting kicked off the team. They are the Cinderella’s of Thursday knocking off an even more dirty program lol
  6. 2018 Bracket Challange

    The perfect combo for a mid major upset. Ridiculously athletic guards and hitting 3s
  7. 2018 Bracket Challange

    The difference in athleticism between the MAC and the america east is incredible

    And we supposedly destroyed UB in a closed scrimmage this year??
  9. Agree on all points! Still disappointed men not going to 6 STRAIGHT TOURNAMENTS! Still feel in a one bid conference any tournament is a REWARD. Still feel by declining you are telling recruits, get to the ncaa or you are garbage {maybe a bit too strong, but I still do not like the message declining a tournament represents.} Would've been 7 for the men as well. CIT, NCAA, NCAA, NCAA, CBI, CIT..then decline for cost. Does make it a bit odd that they're highlighting the now 7 straight trips for the women..when put in that context. Could have been more too it than just cost. Maybe the team took a vote? UTRGV is 15-17 and playing in the CBI. Why should any team with that record be in any postseason tournament. CIT games that were broadcast on CBSSN on Monday I would have been down for. Any national TV game no matter the day or time is good.
  10. No respect! Don't the America East Broadcasts go through ESPN. I don't think it's about respect because the chool doesn't have a contract with ESPN. I do think that the America east does and thought that the conference games would be broadcast on espn3.What about Spectrum sports? Wouldnt they want to pick up some of these games?
  11. Recruiting - 2017

    Oh I couldnt point out Wyoming on the map anyway lol. I just thought of some of the schools in the mountain west theyd be playing are close to Nevada
  12. Recruiting - 2017

    Isnt he originally from the Vegas area?
  13. We are the number one team in the country!! Why is it that we cant get all home games on espn3???
  14. UMBC

    I think it is the fear of losing a PIG and not even getting to Thursday/Friday that hurts more. If you win great, but if you lose its like you were never there.
