Virginia looks like the right place to stay. On the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives map there are four places near Elon on the Virginia side and none on the NC side. That's how I make my travel plans.

 

Glad the game is still on.

#100541 UAlbany takes home its 5th straight America East Commissioner's Cup

Posted by Dane Pound on 05 June 2017 - 09:53 AM


 

Will there be any growth staying in the AE?  Where is the ceiling for UAlbany athletic success?  Have we hit it?

Do we try and raise the bar?

I find the new conference talk interesting because right now, I don't see a "no brainer" conference option. The CAA maybe, but their high water mark seemed to be seven or eight years ago. The MAC maybe, but geographically it doesn't make a ton of sense.

 

The last couple of years we've been around the top 100(ish) in RPI in basketball and the top 10 in lacrosse this year regardless of conference. Not to sound cocky but I don't think we've hit a ceiling yet.




#100540 UAlbany takes home its 5th straight America East Commissioner's Cup

Using religious figures in a response of disgust probably isn't needed. 

+1, thank you for saying this.
So funny coming from the people on this board who complain people take what people say on here too seriously. DP has asked people not to talk politics on here....

 

 

Not to say anything negative about DP; but it is really physically impossible to participate on this blog and NOT talk politics. We are a STATE University. Everything this University does whether athletically, academically, community or whatever has political implications. Did not the governor slice off perhaps the biggest most successful part of UA (not to bring up another item from other threads--but did he not?)  Our very existence as a NEW DI athletic program vs being a historically big 5 power, is directly related to government blocking at the worst and government disinterest at the least. Like it or not, political interference at the most and government disinterest @ the least, continues to hinder any goals UA may have in expanding into a better conference and/or getting AAU certification. Funding also an issue; but again as a STATE University, government and politics inherently involved. How can we not talk politics?????

 

You're right to a degree that there is no separating politics from a state school. The Elon game is a good example.

 

I've been opposed to talking about politics for politics sake on this board because people can do that on basically every other form of social media there is.




#100182 Danes vs UNC

Posted by Dane Pound on 13 May 2017 - 09:01 PM

Not sure what you guys were worried about. This was never in doubt.  ;)

 

We just need to tweak our 10 goal lead offense a bit.

#100129 Recruiting - 2017

Posted by Dane Pound on 12 May 2017 - 07:53 PM

The program is in a pretty good place when we get a three star recruit who had multiple power school offers and we say "yeah, he can give us some depth in the front court."

 

Foster looks like a solid piece of the puzzle. Seems like a good student who had some Ivy league offers coming out of high school also. I suspect if we see a lot of him we'll see flashes of why he was so highly ranked coming out of high school. 

 

The thing I like about this class is that it looks like we got what we needed. We added depth at the guard spots and got bigger and more athletic in the front court.




#100062 Recruiting - 2017

Posted by Dane Pound on 10 May 2017 - 09:58 AM

Still not sure who is leaving and how many spots we still have to fill. If we're still looking for a big guy, they don't come bigger than Rozelle Nix who is leaving Pitt as a grad transfer - 6'11 and 300lbs.

Best of luck to Maitland at BC.

 

It's all about Ahmad Clark now. Clark is coming with a little less hype but he still had offers from a solid MAC team and brought his team to the JUCO national championship game as a freshman.

Should be a fun atmosphere when they split the arena. It took almost 20 years but I'm glad it happened.
