Big Purple Growl 2/4 vs Stony Brook

26 January 2017 - 10:26 AM

I was going to make the trip up, but can't. I have two tickets sec300 and a Sefcu lot parking pass. If anyone needs let me know.

@Stony Brook 1/8

Will Stony Brook hit more threes than the amount of snow they get today???

It's as big of a second conference game as you can get. No one wants to start off 0-2 heading home.

SEFCU Parking Pass

Anyone interested in SEFCU Lot Parking passes for men's home games? Only going to use the BPG, and senior night.

 

Send me a message.

Has anyone else come across Reece Williams blog posts this the past week starting from 6/20?

 

http://www.reecewritesofpassage.com/

 

If you start from the begining you think it's just about the struggles of being a D1 walk-on, but he takes it to a whole other level. Accusing coaches of offending him, to saying he didn't care anymore come his senior year, and from having a scholarship to no scholarship.

 

He has the right 100% to voice his opinions, but I have to say this makes him come off extremely salty and bitter. No one forced Reece to stay at UA as a walk-on and if he thought he was good enough to play, he could have sought out other schools to transfer to. Theres probably hundreds of former HS basketball players at UA that would have loved to get to experience the life of D1 basketball. How many people get to say they played in the NCAA tournament twice?

 

I should just, cut to the point...

 

The blog posts made me sick. I don't know what happend, but I know coach Brown has never had a bad thing to say about Reece in the media. Everyone knows the life of a walk-on absolutely sucks! If the scholarship that wasn't, ended up actually being a scholoarship, would this personal vendetta against the program exist???
