It's his MCL, not the ACL from last fall, and Gattuso says it doesn't look serious

Plus athletic scholarships are not state-funded? Or does he mean that donations to athletics would otherwise go to the U's general budget, ignoring that without sports most of those donations wouldn't be made?

Nearly 80% of the athletics spending is from "external sources", the Student Athletic Fee covers more that 1/4 of the scholarship cost even using an out-of-state tuition number for every athlete.

RealtimeRPI power rankings are out, list Albany #158, 30th in FCS, 5th in the Colonial. Project us at 8-3, losing only to ODU, Richmond, and Villanova. I'll take that.

72, do you still own that fancy hat you are wearing in your profile pic?

I do, but don't wear it much. It's heavy, hot, unbalanced, and blocks the view of the row behind me.

Like Albany in the NCAAs, Mike goes out in the first round.


Or as Will Brown says, he's like a Kentucky player - one and done.

How does this stack up against our SUNY Center competitors? I'm guessing much better.

With such a stellar resume how do we convert that into a promotion?


Outside of maybe Syracuse...we're probably the next best 'winningest' D1 school overall (but SU has what, a 100yr head start on us? lol)...at least it feels like it. What other NY school is up there? St. Johns? Definitely no SUNY and definitely not the other local community college. That place doesn't even register as a sports school on this map.


Lately, anyway.  For sure, Cornell has some over the decades.  I'd just want a national title to match the two hockey schools in the area. (RPI also won USILA's Wingate Trophy for the top college lacrosse team in 1952, before the NCAA had championships)

Looks like they're only selling tickets for the west grandstand and end zones, that'd cut maximum attendance to around 14K, I'd guess.


A note if you've never been there; the stands are very steep, built before ADA requirements, so while there are great views, you may not want the upper rows if you've got bad knees or hips, or a fear of heights.
