Umm, I swallowed a goldfish while at UA in the mid 90's... That wasn't the 20's LOL

Same here...easiest night of pledging.  ;)

Not for me. Last night of hell week, a few hours before initiation. Put it in a beer and chug. Easy peezy. Lol


It's sushi, not poison like Tide pods!

#105357 President Update

Posted by alum73 on 10 January 2018 - 09:12 PM

I spoke to the president tonight.  I told him I was encouraged to have a 5 year plan, but we haven't had a president last 5 years in quite a while.

Levine, Lillis, Iati...  Loved that stretch of UA basketball.
"Kids are more sensitive"......  too funny.
Defensive, sensitive.... oh the youth of today.

My point exactly when I called it a generational thing last week. SOFT.


They said the same thing fifty years ago. I think Socrates said it too.

It doesn't mean it's not true.  Those Spartans were a lot tougher.

We got ask to leave again 6 mins after the game ended. Standing where we have our seats chatting with people in sec 200. I watched Eric Fletcher who works for athletics instruct the ushers to ask people to leave (he was on the middle of the court motioning with his arm telling them to get people out). The ushers then came up  into the stands and asked us to leave.


We did inquire (w/ athletic staff) and the reason they gave us is that they are kicking people out because we're on ESPN3 and we have a lot of equipment (looks the same to me), and so everyone must leave immediately. Are they afraid people will steal it? Im unsure how ESPN equipment has anything to do with anything, but but that was the reason given. Hmm all last season we were on ESPN3... and this season we're 5 home games into the season on ESPN and now we have this 'new' rule;..


Wonder if they kick people out at the women's games when they are on ESPN3?


Very frustrating. Tell me what other away game you have been too that has asked you leave immediately after the game because of ESPN equipment being in the building. TU staff didn't even ask us to leave this year...and they are the only location that has ever asked us to leave after a game, and we have gone to over 100 away games including UNLV, Duke, UNC, Pitt, Syr, S. FL, etc in the country to rinky dink schools...and this is a first. As staff they have all access passes to these away games so the wouldn't really know, but as regular away guests I can confirm we're not asked to leave...regardless of what they think bigger schools do..proof is that they don't kick us out.


Sigh, great community/ season ticket holder relations we have here at the university. But yes, lets (athletics) complain we can't get enough people in the seats, raise the prices and then kick the people you do have in them out as soon as we have their $. Not to add, no communication to attendees of these new rules. You'd think after their lack of communication on other rule changes etc they would attempt a tiny bit to communicate to people. Guess that is asking too much.  


Rant done... <_<

I keep telling you ... IT'S YOU!

We know who he is. ;)

You get in there as well...


It's a possibility.

#103919 2017-18 Season

Posted by alum73 on 01 December 2017 - 06:04 PM


I've been worried about this with Healy all along. Next season the team is really only losing Anderson but adding Rizzuto at the 1/2 slots. Can a young kid like him wait 2 years to see real playing time? In the 2019-20 season he will be the man as a Soph, but I have to imagine he is itching to play. 


On a side note, my 8 year old keeps asking about him and when he will get to see him play. Apparently he assisted with his team at the UAlbany summer basketball camp, and when he remembered my sons name after the purple and gold game, his eye's lit up and he was in love. (this is the same emotional kid that cried when he learned he wouldn't get to see Peter Hooley play anymore) 


I am rooting for him to stay and keep the aussie tradition alive!


Problem is, I'm not sure where you play with with how well Costa and Clark are playing in the time given to them...one could argue that each deserves a few more minutes on average. My hope is that Healey sees that if he takes this time to grow his game, the AE will be his oyster as a sophomore with a very talented Rizzuto as running mate. 


Assuming Rizzuto doesn't red shirt.

I would like to see Clark and Foster get some more minutes. If only to give Stire, Cremo and Nichols a little breather.

These games are good prep for teams like UNH and UML that their big guys shooting beyond the three point line. I'm really hoping to see a healthy David Nichols tonight. The wrist looked like it bothered him shooting from the line and in game the other night.

It must be really bad, it affected everyone's foul shooting!

Joe looks very bad to me.  Lazy passes, lazy D.  Some of the fouls on the bigs look questionable.

I'm guessing redshirt for Healy.
