#106739 2017-18 Season

Posted by UAalum72 on 18 February 2018 - 01:13 PM

I probably shouldn't post this because it'll probably jinx him, but after 24 games, I believe that Stire is 23-1 on the opening tip...

Nice move. I think he’s about 1-4 since this post

#106728 Syracuse

LaxPower forum says the last SU game with < five goals was a 10-3 loss to North Carolina in 1991. Biggest loss at home since 19-6 to Cornell in 1987. Worst loss was 21-7 to Duke in 2014

1 for 5? Boy, this team better work on their man-up offense.

Nice move by ESPN not having a boring game like this on a national network

#106667 new QB Coach and Passing Coordinator

Posted by UAalum72 on 16 February 2018 - 11:51 AM

He only played one game so a medical redshirt shouldnt be a problem.

Gattuso May have said something about mentally trusting the knee, but thats not unusual with those injuries

That Iona win doesn't look so great anymore after tonight... Talk about an RPI killer

It would be true if it didn't float Siena's RPI...it's a net wash...
It takes away any chance Iona will finish in the top 100. It moves LCC out of last. Neither of those are good
Aints also now have more MAAC wins than we do

#106430 Contract Extension

Posted by UAalum72 on 09 February 2018 - 10:23 AM

As for doing some research...here's some research for you. Not looking to far out but looking at other CAA affiliate members and peer institutions in the AE. Maine and UNH joined the CAA in 2007. Throwing away each teams inaugural season (Fords first year)...year 2-5 records. 
Maine 5-3
UNH 6-2
Maine 4-4
UNH 6-2
Maine 3-5
UNH 5-3
Maine 6-2
UNH 6-2
4 year in conference winning %
Maine 56%
UNH 72%
By contrast, a coach that has 4 full years under his belt has a winning % of 34% and a record of 11-21 and we are being told but it's so hard...other programs struggle making this move. <- this isn't even true...
Again, I'm not asking for him to be fired, I just don't understand why there was a rush to extend a coach and commit another 900k or more to him when he had multiple years left on his contract.

Not comparable. Maine and UNH had been in the A-10, the same league, the CAA just took over management. Stony Brook had a head start by going to the. Big South a full scholarship league before moving to the CAA. But some startups like Kennesaw seem to have moved right past us

Very grey...very

Cant people learn to turn their phone/camera sideways to give a wide-angle view?

Nice intensity in the second half. I was afraid they would be down enough after the loss to UVM to lose this one too. Has a corner now been turned?

This team is ALWAYS  turning a corner

Posted by UAalum72 on 24 January 2018 - 10:12 PM

7 deep and nothing from bench... Very surprising that we red shirted the whole freshman class and proceeded to have zero depth.

Our bench had two points, four rebounds, and one assist. UVMs bench, on the other hand, had ... two points, three rebounds, and one assist.

#105734 [MBB] Game #21: 1/18/18 - 7:00pm - vs UMass-Lowell (5th Annual Coaches Cure CF)

Posted by UAalum72 on 19 January 2018 - 07:26 PM

Someone (even the past) wanted Brown fired!? Boo that man!

Short memory. Even last March our resident manic-depressive Scrabbleship said the loss to UVM meant the clock has reached midnight for Will Brown. (He hasn’t posted since)

Remember it took him ten years or more to get his record up to .500. Lot of doubters even since then, eve after he got the rep for winning the tournament

#104994 [MBB] Game #16: 1/3/18 - 7:00pm - vs Hartford

Posted by UAalum72 on 04 January 2018 - 08:44 AM

They also play a bit rough inside with that Irish kid and Attia. Clearing out with elbows, etc. That's what had me incensed when Stire was called for 3 fouls on basically one trip down the floor. On the third one he took a charge to make a point and was called for the block instead. People were LIVID at that call.

Yeah, I was amazed that Carroll could play like he does for 37 minutes and not get whistled for a single foul.

Posted by UAalum72 on 03 January 2018 - 06:12 PM

With his outmanned Pittsburgh team well on its way to a 77-51 loss at Louisville, Stallings was overheard getting into it with what appears to be a Cardinals fan or fans.

At least we didnt pay our guys $100,000, Stallings yelled,
