#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.

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.

#100522 UAlbany takes home its 5th straight America East Commissioner's Cup

Posted by MRSGDG on 03 June 2017 - 05:31 PM

Is this something that other conferences look at when deciding who they want to invite in? I'd think we'd be appealing to others considering our programs consistently know how to win.

I have looked into this a ton. It really comes down to MONEY and a major COMMITMENT to athletics... we r unwilling to do either ...
When your governor is more interested in who gets to use what bathroom in another state than supporting the state university's sports teams then you know we have no chance of moving up.

Jesus give it up already. Been there done that thread.

Tantrum, meltdown, melodramatic reaction.... all wrapped into one.

If it weren't for bathroom politics, we would be playing the Dukes of the world. Instead we get Central Connecticut state and the likes...


For many people sports will never be more important than rights and liberties. Not a far stretch for most people, either left or right or middle to put more worth on their beliefs than a sporting opponent.

Just received a call from an Albany athlete ... the conversation was terrific... the major problem I have is that the email specifically stated NO Solicitation.... this was not the case...at the end of the call I was asked to give money...

While it's not the biggest deal, this is very very wrong. My wife and I give what I believe is substantial money to the athletic department for the last 5 years and this was the second time in print (the first being the chairback seats) where they have blatantly lied . I'm sorry but this is becoming a problem in my option...if there is a third time I will cut my donation to nothing ... The communication from the athletic department is a joke .

 
You should call the Athletic Department and let them know you don't want to be solicited. 

I was speaking with Casey Crandall and Justin Brown from the GDAC at tonight's lacrosse game and I mentioned the call we got today, of which we were not solicited. They told me that the calls definitely were not solicitation calls. They were thank you calls only. However they got an alumn who wanted to donate and it created confusion amongts the other student athletes (they arent normally call center ppl).

So there were a couple of calls where the students mistakenly asked for money before the staff realized what was going on and reminded them they were thank you calls only.

So was just a misunderstanding with the students who dont normally make calls to alumns, etc. One thing I'm glad I never had to do as a student lol.
