#106341 [MBB] Game #26: 2/8/18 - 7PM - vs Vermont

You can also thank Jay Bilas should UA defeat my Catamounts tomorrow. He pretty much gave us the Kiss of Death with this article:
64. Vermont Catamounts
This was the team that barely lost at Rupp Arena to start the season. The Catamounts have five losses, but all were very close games. That matters. In the NCAA tournament, this team can sneak up and beat some poor, dumb group that takes it lightly. The Catamounts will likely run the table in the America East and be crazy confident in March."
He is such a D-bag for doing that ...   Anyway UA & UVM games are always interesting. Good luck Danes..

Kiss of Death — too funny! Looking forward to another great game between the Catamonunts & Great Danes tomorrow evening — hopefully, we win this one.

Are the parking fees an attempt to raise funds for sefcu improvements or building of a parking garage? If so I would have no problem paying but I would love to know where the money goes.

excellent question and excellent point.

Still doesn’t make good business sense to me. You want to build your fan base and would reap more profit by getting new folks to return, than by chasing potential new fans away through gouging them $10 for parking. #Business101

Parking cost double today at Dutch, price gougers...
Just fyi for those without a pass.

Unfortunately, it’s stupid decisions like this that discourage a potential new fan from attending more UA games. We have a golden opportunity to perhaps hook some new fans, and the administration chooses to gouge them. I went to the Siena - Manhattan game at the TU Center last evening, and they only charged $8.00 in the commercial parking garage right next to the arena. Didn’t think that was too bad for downtown Albany. Just my opinion, but it’s a bad business decision to gouge a potential new fan $10 for on campus parking.

Interested to see what the attendance will be for tomorrow night.

Undoubtly, it will be low — lot of conflicts this time of the year with holiday parties, holiday concerts, etc., and Disney On Ice at the TUC. My guess — around 1500.

Go read their board... Im on the floor laughing. They are all passing around the gas can... Lighting themselves on fire.
What a joke of a program patsos has over there ... Should have hammered them but rivalry games are tougher.

If we had played them at home, like Vermont just did, I have to believe we would have beaten them by 15 or more.
