#100948 2017-18 MBB Schedule

Posted by Dane96 on 18 August 2017 - 09:09 PM

In the world where they have:


Won 428 games to 206 Losses since 1998.  


That's an average of 22.5 W and 10.8 L per year


Their worst season in that 19 year period is a .500 record.


They have had 16 of 19 years of at least 20+ wins, including a 30 win season.


6 NCAA tourney's with a Sweet 16 appearance. They have 4 NCAA tourney wins, including Oklahoma State, Indiana, Alabama, and Pitt (the latter two being #2 and #3 seeds, respectively, and Indiana a #4)


8 NIT tourney appearances, including 4 "at-large" berths and 5 wins, including over Villanova and Tulsa.


4 CIT tourney appearances.


6 MAC Titles.


Head Coaches such as Stan Heath, Gary Waters,  and Jim Christian (though I'd take Will Brown over all of them, combined).


Oh...and they were ranked 23rd in the AP Poll in 2008 and #12 in the ESPN Coaches Poll in 2002.


I love our school...I love what Will Brown has done, and the kids we graduate...but until we achieve that level of success in a better conference, Kent State = High Mid Major and Albany = Mid Major

Very surprised.  Wondering if he picked up an injury.  He was fighting for the backup spot, and he seemed to have a shot according to many reports.


Edit: Looks like he got injured.  If its his shoulder...i'd say he's done.  Feel bad for him.

Iorizzo' writing was as a UA proponent.


This is a great move.  

#100624 Jamir Andrews

Transferred to D-II Northeastern State. They play D-II in a really good conference, the MIAA.  


They are in Oklahoma.


He has a history with the Head Coach at NESU; he was recruited by Coach Downey who was then with Bowling Green when Jamir signed with BGSU.

We have an early verbal commit from George Richardson, a 6'2 193 WR/FS from Sterling, VA.


He was 2nd team All-State as a Junior.

A whole lot of people are placing a whole lot of faith in a wholly brand new offensive line and linebacker positions. I'd be pleasantly surprised if we make noise, and it would be a testament to great coaching.

#100191 Danes vs UNC

Posted by Dane96 on 13 May 2017 - 10:06 PM

Did you actually watch the faceoffs?!?!  TD went 23-30...destroying one of the best FO specialists in the country.


If you understood anything about UNC, you'd know their strength was in the wings...and it's exactly what they did in the second half...totally outplayed us on the wings AFTER TD won the faceoff.



#100188 Danes vs UNC

Posted by Dane96 on 13 May 2017 - 09:45 PM

TD did well, even in the second half.  The wing play wasn't great...but UNC has tremendous wing play, which is why they made it a game.


Honestly, while it wasn't a great second half...we did get one thing we needed to go forward: ADVERSITY.  UNC just beat the bag out of Syracuse and Notre Dame to get here.  They tried to beat the bag out of us, and frankly did...in the 3rd.


Albany closed it down in the fourth...and that can only help us going forward.  IMHO, if we face Maryland next weekend...the winner will be in the Championship game.  I truly believe that Albany, UNC, and UMD are three of the best 6 teams in the land.

Best job ever: Weatherman.  You can't get fired for being wrong.  :)

Closing in on 5700 sold.  With walk-up, this game is most likely going to sell-out!
