#101416 [FB] Game 3 - vs Monmouth - 9/16 - 7PM

Posted by Dane Pound on 16 September 2017 - 09:56 AM



It's because of your GDAC donation (the $50 for each seat) that you receive the parking.


If anyone ever needs extra's, please let me know (I have two seats). I only get to 1-2 games per year due to work and distance.  I also sit in the Upper Deck for the same reasons as GDG.  


Dane96 sits right by me, Click and Jimbo (and maybe others). I feel like we have the best seats in the house. Right on the 50 yard line nice and high. See everything. I've sat in the lower level for the spring games and I can't see crap on running plays.

I promise to behave. lol.



 Since there's just the two of us it's not a burden, but I could see where it would be prohibitive if there was a brood to bring along. There should be some sort of youth pricing to try and build up the fan base for future years. 



We've found the berm a good solution for kids. Tickets are cheaper and many kids aren't great about sitting in one spot for a long time. On the berm they can wander and roll down the hill. Sight lines aren't quite as good and you do miss Eli yelling at the quarterback but hey, you can't have everything.

#101235 2017 Coaches vs Cancer - Capital Region Event

Posted by Dane Pound on 06 September 2017 - 05:25 PM

One of the auction items is for seats in the General Managers box at Yankee Stadium with Coach Patsos. I was thinking that would be a great gift for Bob87. Maybe if we all pooled our money we could pull it off. :D


Seriously, though it's a great event and I'm sure there are better auction items.

Awesome. A lot to like about this commitment. Just about every write-up describes him as "unselfish" and "high-motor." Also, from NY!


I've seen him described as a shooting guard and also as a small forward. I like how we've progressed from essentially playing a third guard at small forward to getting true wings. De Sousa seems like the next in that line but seemed to be even better offensively.


Stoked about the present and the future.

SEFCU scoreboard ...pic is from someone on twitter




It looks nice but I thought it would be higher. It's really going to be in the way at center court :D

Verbal Commits has Grayson landing at Central Oklahoma (DII). Closer to home and will be playing in the same conference as Jamir Andrews. 

Best of luck to him both at Central Oklahoma and at home. He is from the greater Houston area. Hopefully spared from the flooding there.

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.

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.
