Little trivia: I was once watching a show where they were interviewing Rachel Ray and she said one of the first jobs that inspired her career was working at a culinary shop in Stuyvesant Plaza.

These are great questions. With Nano gone, I'm not sure what else will take us into a national conversation or help us leap in the rankings. So Athletics plays a role beyond just community building. There is evidence that winning at a high level corresponds to increased applications and donations, so I hope the school will see the value. Or maybe one of our alums will just become a billionaire and start pouring money into the program :)

Putting aside all political grandstanding and/or posturing by ny state leadership,
UAlbany athletics has become 'a' if not 'the' dominant force of the America East.  
 
Many UA fanatics sit and ponder the current existence of our athletics program.  Are we content
with staying in a conference like the America East?  It has served its purpose, there is no doubt in this.
 
What is our athletic department vision over the next 20 years?  What is Benson proposing?
 
Will there be any growth staying in the AE?  Where is the ceiling for UAlbany athletic success?  Have we hit it?
Do we try and raise the bar?

Is this something that other conferences look at when deciding who they want to invite in? I'd think we'd be appealing to others considering our programs consistently know how to win.


I have looked into this a ton. It really comes down to MONEY and a major COMMITMENT to athletics... we r unwilling to do either ...

 

 

If only some donor could fund and endow our transition into a new conference. We've done so many things right and the program deserves to be recognized for it.
