GAMEDAY!!!! How bad of a father would I be if I stayed home from son's baseball game to watch this? kidding of course. Phone will be shut off and game will be DVRed. Expect some late posts from me after watching the game after it is over.
I don't know anything about lacrosse but I found it strange how we couldn't advance the ball...every time we passed even across the field UNC kids were on us. Not sure how that happens...I'm clueless though.
I'm no expert but it seems they were using a 10 man ride a lot which is kind of like a full court press but different because they have an extra man defending with the goalie coming out of the goal. Just like a full court press, if you break it you have a layup. If you break the 10 man ride you have basically an empty net to shoot in but it's very hard to break.
Can any of the real lacrosse people on here explain this better for us?
I'd give it a 0. I watched the game at Vermont on AETV last week and the Vermont production was infinitely better than ours. They had a play-by-play guy who was fairly knowledgable and had done appropriate homework on our team. We had no audio, just crowd noises. Their video was much less choppy and much better at following the ball. Their graphics included the clock with the score. Ours did not have a clock. I thought our production was embarrassingly bad.
Please email the athletic department!! It is unacceptable that we have a top 10 lax program and the video feed is THAT bad. I've already emailed. The more people to email, the more likely it will get better. It's choppy and the cameraperson doesn't follow the ball very well.
Oh god, I just realized that anyone can access those tickets. Another classic Albany AD move.
Yup, it was mentioned on the America East board by a UVM fan. I would imagine you will get some UVM buying from us. Not sure it matters if UA can't sell all the tickets to UA fans and UVM fans buy them from us instead of waiting for them to go back to UVM's box office if we can fill them all.
