Does anyone have an update on Hanks? Is he100%? I assume he was not 100% last year. Did the NCAA grant an extra year of eligibility because of his knee. If he was healthy last year they beat Maine and Elon giving them 6 wins.
He was granted another year saw something about it somewhere last fall. Some kids take longer to mentally get over a knee injury like he had. They said he was physically ready to go but he did not think so. Anyway he is ready to go. He is the captain of one of the Player Teams from the Danes draft - they are competing with each other. I think there are about 8 or 10 teams. They post photos of themselves at BB games and doing community service - they must have goals for all of those things plus competitive work outs etc.
My question is about Diggs. He was great last year but unless he was given another year he is done. He said he spent a couple of years screwing around finally got himself together.
I'm optimistic that he'll help the offense. He really didn't say anything in the interview - just a lot of coach speak. But he's new, still getting to know the players and hasn't had a practice yet so i'm sure that he's still feeling things out a bit. Will be interesting to see if things are any different in a few weeks when they start spring practice.
I have done a little background research and he seems to be a very good QB guy so we'll see how that translates. Hopefully his influence and ability with the QB's, plus Hanks being back plus a year of experience with the O line and a couple of stud lineman that were redshirted last year will translate into actually scoring those 20 points this year that would have made us a winning team last year. I forgot Mofor and the receiving crew from last year having another year. We'll see.
Just my input guys. Do some research on how teams fair when they step up to a league like the CAA from a league like the Northeast Conference. It is USUALLY a 5-7 year period to get the program where it can be consistently competitive.
Oh please... What exactly was the rush to max out a coach who's a proven loser at Albany when he had 2 years left.
Say what you want and make all the excuses you want... His offense is a complete joke and his qbs, the entire stable is garbage...I watched the starting qb repeatedly not be able to make the most routine throws.
Again, what was the rush?
Excuses!!!! You guys don't grasp the reality of coaching, just run with 'feelings'. Did you actually READ what I said?? All a couple of you ever do on here is bitch and complain with LITTLE concept of what it takes. I am done responding to you. You don't care about a reasoned look at things. Not a chance a new coach coming into a situation with a jump up in level of competition with an entire new staff could do much better!! Bottom line. Now if things haven't changed in another 3 years I may agree with you!
Also, one of guys last fall tried to compare with new coaches at other CAA schools. CAN'T. Those were long time programs with existing reps etc etc.
Not good news. Clark is a great Defensive coach, which has been the strong part of the team since Coach Gatusso hired him. My BIG concern is that guys who have committed to Albany will uncommit or not sign the NLI because they think Clark is leaving!!! Which is why I am Shocked that this thread would be started the DAY BEFORE NLI signings are to take place.
Gives this loser gg some reprieve unfortunately and a reason to keep this loser coaching staff in place.
. I am at hunting camp and did not use my season tickets today. Sorry but I truly think you have gone off The deep end with the negativity. There are always positives and after mentioning the negatives a couple of times it is tIme to look at the positives. Offensive coordinator should go obviously. But there is talent on the team and some petty good players red-shirted and few commits already.
I am really invested in this program, played for Fordy years ago, have had 3 season tickets for sometime now and donate more than I probably should to FB and I get really pissed at the on-field coaching like you do, BUT, there are positives as well. All I'm saying. Time to talk about them
