#102380 2017-18 Season

Posted by MRSGDG on 14 October 2017 - 07:24 AM

Quick video of some of the nice moves, etc. I cut out a lot of the running of the plays, etc. to appease MRSGDG :P (and to cut the video time down lol).

LOL you never know who is watching. I do know for practice they sometimes put paper over some of the windows in the gyms.

#102308 Oct 22 - MBB & WBB Meet and Greet

Posted by MRSGDG on 09 October 2017 - 09:33 PM

Not that an email has gone out.... Still need to work on sending communication out to fans in a timely manner. Hopefully will get better. Remember last year they sent emails about game day stuff at 6pm that night lol. Growing pains...

Saw this on twitter posted 3 days ago.

#102106 Stuyvesant Plaza

Posted by MRSGDG on 07 October 2017 - 01:45 PM

Not fully related to this topic but the UA Alumni magazine came in the mail this week and this issue and every time I get surprised by an alum and companies they lead. Like the cover story that the CEO of Hertz is an alum and the Pres and Chief Exec of Brookstone is an alum.  http://www.albany.ed...MagFall2017.pdfJust neat to see the national impact of the business leaders.

#102087 Stuyvesant Plaza

Posted by MRSGDG on 06 October 2017 - 12:12 PM



If it's just the scoreboard that would be great as well. Benson when it comes to fund raising is doing well.



Albany Foundation staff are the ones who work on the fundraising for the college.



The athletic department has it's own staff for revenue generation when looking for corporate sponsors. The foundation works for fundraising for the university itself. I am sure there is some overlap, but if you owned a business that wanted to donate or sponsor athletics you work with the athletics department directly. 



Yes I know how it works. And I also know the Foundation is the one who works on the large donations that take years and years to cultivate. That's all. Credit shouldn't be assigned or assumed. Very thankful there are staff who have cultivated these relationships to get businesses to donate to the university. Onto video of the scoreboard ...is it the 13th yet?

Unveiling at SEFCU Arena sounds like the plaza is putting its name on the scoreboard.



"for their generous gift to the University at Albany"


Sounds like they are behind the gift of it. Great new partners for the school if that's the case!

#101485 Title IX violations

Posted by MRSGDG on 17 September 2017 - 07:13 PM

I read the article and was surprised the school doesn't have someone who is responsible to make sure Title IX is being followed. Most institutions (banks, hospitals, most organizations.. etc) have compliance officers or lawyers or someone on staff who's job it is is to make sure they are following all required rules, regs and laws. And it's not like Title IX is an unknown thing, just kinda surprised they don't have a staffer on that. Ball was dropped on that one. (I work in administration so that's why it's surprising to me). Least it looks like things are resolving themselves from the article.

#101271 Let's Fix SEFCU!

Posted by MRSGDG on 09 September 2017 - 11:33 AM




Hahah DP.

Do we know if we are doing away with the corner screens or will those still be there + the scoreboard?

I was wondering that also. Not sure if the folks on Millionaire's Row will be able to see the video screens up there.
Looks all four sides of the scoreboard have a video screen.

Is there a ribbon below? S eels like there is one of those round scrolling ribbons there.



Someone I know who saw it in person said that's what it was ..like the scrolling round advertisement thing.

Props to the Coaching staff for their recruiting work. I'm sure nights like this make all the traveling and recruiting efforts worth it.
