#101555 Title IX violations

Posted by UAalum72 on Yesterday, 10:36 AM

Kinda devious. I like it. But wouldn't be a good look if some muckraking reporter does a story on it, even if it's allowed.


Another expense, I'm sure you'd have to get insurance for all these athletes.


I looked at the men's lacrosse stats, and of the 40+ players listed, twelve played in fewer than ten games, so maybe you wouldn't need all 97 more women if they cut a few of the men walkons.

Is this a confirmed "white out"?

As far as I know and was posted on their FB, it is.
It does say "WHITE OUT" on the Gold Level ticket

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.


But the berm has the best view of the video scoreboard

This game is a 'whiteout' game so where your white shirts folks!

A fake status "rule" from a time when only the stinking rich could afford a separate summer wardrobe, and hire help to keep cotton and linen clean and unwrinkled.
It's going to be 82 and sunny. It's still summer

BTW Rodger mentioned Morgan St. AD Ed Scott got his bachelor's and masters at Albany, played baseball for four years and was a team captain for John Mueller


But can't get a video feed of their games online.   :)


Well, one of his stops was with academics and compliance at Binghamton. Don't know if that was during the Broadus era or cleaning it up

#101184 9/2 @ODU

Posted by UAalum72 on 03 September 2017 - 06:52 PM

Couple things mentioned on the ODU forum

ODU had 18 completions but five were to Duhart and only one other to a WR. Ten were to RBs and two to a tight end. Pads the completion %.

They had two runs of 41 and 28 yards. Otherwise they gained 29 yards net on 29 carries

Football on the radio. If we win, party like it's 1938.

#101065 Friday Poll - 9/1

Posted by UAalum72 on 01 September 2017 - 07:14 PM

Not just winnable. Morgan St. was 3-8 last year and the MEAC is a very weak league. We'd better beat them. Plus we have a shot for at least  two of UD, UNH, Richmond and 'nova.

#101036 2017-18 MBB Schedule

Posted by UAalum72 on 31 August 2017 - 12:32 PM

Will was on Wyland today. Mostly promoting Coaches vs. Cancer (he wanted to hold it at SEFCU but Patsos wouldn't give him a home-and-home :D ).


Didn't catch all of it, but later he discussed the schedule some. Scheduled tough because we're experienced now, will rethink that in two years. Yale's Makai Mason, a fourth-year guy who missed all of last year, has already committed to Baylor for his fifth year - Ivy League doesn't allow redshirts. 


Devonte Campbell is our most improved player. This could also be Travis Charles' year. Doesn't see any newcomers taking a starting role this year.

#100995 Meet and Greet

Posted by UAalum72 on 24 August 2017 - 06:32 PM

Didn't seem to be as many people as last year.

Besides Pitt and Cent Mich the next two years, we've scheduled Syracuse for 2021. 2020 is still open.

There were 275,000 good reasons to play ODU this year even though they're much better than Buffalo. We've got 3 charter flights this year vs none last yr. Buffalo isn't taking calls from the 518 anymore.

Status of Ibitokun-Hanks is still up in the air.

Sussman will be the punter, figuring teams can't put on a full rush since he can throw. Also working on rugby kicks for field position. Got a freshman who can really kick but he has a "jumper's knee" injury and hasn't developed as fast as theyd've liked

It's his MCL, not the ACL from last fall, and Gattuso says it doesn't look serious

Plus athletic scholarships are not state-funded? Or does he mean that donations to athletics would otherwise go to the U's general budget, ignoring that without sports most of those donations wouldn't be made?

Nearly 80% of the athletics spending is from "external sources", the Student Athletic Fee covers more that 1/4 of the scholarship cost even using an out-of-state tuition number for every athlete.
