I'm fatigued from a fan perspective as well. This season has definitely been unlike any others for me where I've missed multiple games, didn't hurry home to watch them on replay immediately after (I took a 4hr nap yesterday before I even though about watching the game lol)...the roller coaster has not been fun. As Click said, we can (probably) beat anyone...but we can (likely) lose to anyone. On any given day. That's the unfortunate truth.

Goodness! Nick is hilarious.

Hahahah. They need to mic him every game from here on until he graduates. I'd love to sit with a guy like that on the bench haha, hell, in the stands.

#106563 New Board Headline

Posted by Eli on 11 February 2018 - 09:51 PM

Folks, I just want to reiterate some things.

I am VERY grateful that this forum exists and is free for all to use. DP deserves a round of applause for that. No one is 'complaining' about anything, just offering some suggestions for updates.


Benson has been growing our athletics program and as a result we got an updated look to the main UAlbany sports site some time ago...personally I'd like the same to happen to the fan community we all know and love. I don't think anyone (certainly not I) means any offense to DP by saying that or offering suggestions for an update or two. My background is in IT and I took more than my share of web/design classes while getting my B.S. in Informatics at UA...so I'm more than happy to assist with design, any possible technical issues that are lingering, maintenance, moderation...even costs (actually, I'm sure a few of us would be willing to help on that front).




I have zero intention of stepping on DP's toes. Whether DP uses my photoshop creations is ENTIRELY up to him. Again, it HIS site so it's HIS rules.


The reason why I bumped this thread: I just noticed that out of the blue he changed the banner to one I had created some time ago but I noticed it didn't look right so I decided to update it.




That being said, I decided to do further updates to the banner and updated the FB picture and the SEFCU picture (to show off our new scoreboard). I also updated the Damien logo to be the purple 'official' alternate not the blue one that some spots on the internet use.

DP, if you want, feel free to use either of these:




#106360 Contract Extension

Posted by Eli on 08 February 2018 - 12:36 PM



We didn't even wait to see if he'd find a QB to build around or start showing signs of getting life in that department/position.


I disagree with this move 100%. Should have waited. We just $iena/Patsos'ed ourselves. In a year or two, with 2-3 years left, we'll be praying he gets fired and will owe him too much money to actually fire him (see Jimmy @ LCC). And he doesn't sound like a guy who'll resign at the behest of the administration/fans either if things go terribly wrong.

Joe's 31pt game last time out earned him AE of the week honors for the 3rd time this season.

I won't be able to make this game but will catch it on replay later in the evening. Hoping we play the same way we did vs UNH. That UA team can beat anyone.

DP, can you move my posts out of the women's thread into this one? Totally didn't realize which thread I was posting in lol.

I was wondering why I was the only one posting 😂😂😂

David had a helluva game too. I wonder if he was forcing the issue during the season trying to get 1,000 and now that he has it he's comfortable and just ballin.

When these two are on, we're tough to beat.

Solid solid win and this is hopefully the team that we see the rest of the way.

#106190 Recruiting - 2019

JGIII got his Michigan offer over the weekend. I believe I heard that was his #1 choice all along.

He is a great local story, and I hope to find a way to go watch one of his games this season, but I'm thinking it's probably pretty safe to take the conversation about him out of the recruiting thread and start an OT normal thread on him.

Maybe I am just a pessimist on the chances now...


Not pessimist...realist.


There is NO chance, the chance might even be in the negative numbers, that we get this kid. If Brown manages to land this kid and get him to play in the AE when a powerhouse program has offered him Brown needs an immediate raise and to be immediately inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame for his contributions to Mid-Majors everywhere. lol.

Above is the story of the medical situation from last night's game. The guy went into cardiac arrest and survived

Wow. Good for him! Way to go to those doctors in the stands and on the bench.

#105968 [MBB] Game #23: 1/24/18 - 7:00pm - @ Vermont

Posted by Eli on 24 January 2018 - 10:16 PM

Offensively speaking...this game had nothing to do with the benches. It had everything to do with David shooting 4-10 (again) and Joe not able to get his good shots due to Duncan playing good D. Again, it's 100x harder for Joe when David isn't 'on'. Having Campbell out on the floor with Joe doesn't help either because NO ONE respects Campbells shot. Charles spent some time on the bench (again)...

It's hard for Joe to do what Joe does when the defense can collapse on him.


But even that being said, if we just rebounded better we might have won this.

Ball game. Blocking foul that looked like a charge to me.
