Topics I've Started

SUNY Free Tuition

31 March 2017 - 02:43 PM

Not being in New York I'm somewhat removed from this topic. Curious if there is a consensus that this is good or bad for UA generally and UA athletics specifically. Not talking about good or bad for SUNY or tax payers just UA affect.

1) It's good because it drives up enrollment thus driving up alumni (fans) and more athletic fees. Ohio State has 66,046 students.

2) No affect

3) It's bad because it backfires. Students get free tuition but are angry about the athletic fee. SUNY loses more "prestige" to private schools hurting recruiting.

I'm confused because for years I heard that a team cannot move to FBS as an independent. FBS was by invitation only. And yet that is what Liberty just did:

Cuomo Speech

10 January 2017 - 03:10 PM

I see in the Times Union that Cuomo is giving one of his six state of the state speeches at UA tomorrow. Any knowledge if UA is proposed to get any goodies or is this just a venue?

Elon

12 October 2016 - 10:26 AM

I made an impulse decision to purchase airline tickets to Albany Saturday 10/29 to attend a UAlbany/Elon football game. My wife will be outta town that weekend and this is my only shot at getting to a game for at least a year or more as we're expecting. It's a very short trip. Flying in Saturday morning and leaving Sunday morning. Love to meet some of you in person.
