I have been going to Albany-Siena games for 60 years.  The first four as a player(2 wins,2 losses) and the remainder as a spectator.  This is an important event in the Capital District.  This year was an excellent option.  UA got great seats.  The games were great.

Concessions are over priced!  I would favor this years set up with the game being out of season packages and being split until UA can update SEFCU to 6000+ seats.  Then Home and Home makes sense!!  

 

I'm all for the TUC being the neutral site for this game, as soon as Siena decides they don't want to play their actual home games there. As long as they play their home games there you can paint the whole thing purple and it's not a neutral site.

Someone on their board said at this rate they'll be playing on campus sooner than later (their losing fans and season ticket holders by the second...droppin like flies). Then it can be a true neutral site.

Most of the Siena board is entertaining, but when they get into their recruiting disadvantages compared to other schools it's easily my favorite thing.

 

I'm sorry, you play in a "pro" arena and you're the one program your school POURS resources into and you're at a recruiting disadvantage? You don't do JUCO's, fine...you can't get the kids in that Iona can, fine...WHO ELSE IN YOUR CONFERENCE CAN OFFER WHAT YOU CAN????

 

You're not firing your coach and AD mid season because of your Franciscan values?? Just admit the truth and get off your high horse, we can't afford or don't want to pay to remove both of them in the middle of the season.

 

Now I'm actually done, I've drank too much coffee today.

One of their posters said SEFCU will always be a “gym” no matter how it’s improved. LCC plays in a conference where all of the on campus facilities are smaller than ours...many are considerably smaller.

Funny, they used to say Albany could never match them because they had so many advantages (including how much they can pay a coach) over a mere state school

Really just because the Monmouth arena is newer, also the big donor was the founder of Hess and his son is still the CEO of the company. The rest of the MAAC arenas aren't anything special.

Of course Monmouth is a new non-Catholic member of the MAAC, jimbo is correct about the rest of that league's gyms.

. Additionally, when Siena goes on the road and plays in those other gyms, attendance is not very good. I believe attendance was around 800-900 last year at Niagara, and 1400 at Canisius. In fact last year when they played at St. Bonaventure, for the coveted Franciscan Cup attendance was 3859. And they traveled all the way to Leigh University in Pennsylvania last month to play in front of a whooping crowd of 767.

And it's still smaller than SEFCU. Capacity listed at 4100.
