    Speaking of Adding insult to injury. I think the following is an absolute disgrace. Hosting a NATIONAL Lacrosse Tournament and Charity Event and NOT putting your best foot forward: from UAlbanySports.com: ALBANY, N.Y. – The University at Albany men’s lacrosse program will be hosting the HEADstrong Foundation’s Nick Colleluori Men’s Lacrosse Albany Classic on Saturday, Oct. 13, on the grass fields adjacent to Tom & Mary Casey Stadium. "In addition to the Great Danes, the four-team tournament includes Johns Hopkins, Vermont and Army. UAlbany will face Johns Hopkins at 11 a.m. and Army at 1 p.m. In other games, Army faces Vermont at 11 a.m., and John Hopkins faces Vermont at 1 p.m. In lieu of admission, a suggested donation of $5 to the HEADstrong Foundation will be requested at the gate. Parking is available in the Dutch Lot for $10." This seems to say that neither Casey (Bob Ford Field) nor Fallon Fields will be used. I think if true, it puts UA in a BAD light in our first time HOSTING a "HeadStong Tournament." I know there is a "minor league" football game @ Casey @7pm. There is plenty of time after the lacrosse tournament to get Casey ready for foosb@ll. I am not sure where Fallon is with rehab and do not know if it is playable; but THERE IS NO EXCUSE not to use Bob Ford Field for lacrosse tournament & CHARITY EVENT. Add me firmly behind BENSON MUST GO!

    Semantics... Not sure which is worse the fact that he has a walk-on who as you said he didn't recruit starting or the fact that in year 5 the kid that dragged/invited himself to the team is starting. What does it say about gattusos recruiting? Don't answer... We all know! We watch it (this team) flop around like a dead fish every Saturday for 3 hours. Not only does this team overall have poor talent which is a direct reflection of the $ienaty recruiter Gattuso and his staff are but apparently they are also poorly coached that in week 5 they are pulling up the rear in penalties. It's a mess... Everywhere and at every level. #patsoswithafootball

    I made a rather insensitive comment on the AE board about not caring about any sports other than Basketball, LAX, and football because those are the ones that will gain national attention and increase the value of a UA degree, but I agree with Oldtimer, please dont call us a football school. Unless we are fully committed to becoming a FBS power, instead of being a FCS loser, we cant be a football school. Put money and resources into the programs that can and do win.

    With all our appearances in NCAA MW BB, MW LACROSSE, Volleyball, Golf, Softball, Baseball, Field Hockey and no post season appearances in football how can we be called a "football school"? We have had season tickets for years and support the football program BUT we must support the Stanford model to excel in all sports!!!!!!!!!

    Definitely stings, I was looking forward to "do more". May not be the worst thing, especially if he can get a red shirt. Will open up some more PT at the guard slot which seems like a packed house already. (Based solely on reports of talent obviously, as we haven't seen anyone play yet)

    You didn't hear? Gattuso is going to have the D play offense and have the O play defense. Or maybe he's warming up to play QB since we don't have any other QBs? By throwing to D-Linemen, he can blame it on them if the ball doesn't get caught...to keep with his MO of using buses on people. lol...HOF wanted creative so...there...

    Besides being disgraceful and bush league; I am wondering how are you going to protect fans from flying lacrosse balls. You are encouraging people to attend and CONTRIBUTE to this charity event?? are you not?? Do you think practice fields in the shadow of Casey stadium are a good incentive for teams like John Hopkins Institute and The United States Military Academy at West Point, to come to Albany for a regular season game or even for another charitable event? Considering the teams and talent in this tournament, I am sure "Inside Lacrosse" and other national media outlets will be present. What a great presentation UAlbany is putting on to the lacrosse world and the HeadStrong foundation. Feel free to share my concerns with other members of the Athletic Department and Dr. Havidan if you are so inclined. Above is the second email I sent to Peter Iorizzo [Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations (Football, Golf, Men's Lacrosse)]. The first email was basically a reprint of my post above, less the "firing part." Whether you are a lacrosse fan or NOT, or even a sports fan or not {I assume if you read this blog, you are at least a sports fan}; should be incensed by this POOR showing and embarrassing action at the University at Albany.

    In defense of Fiacchi, each coach is assigned a territory for recruiting. The recruiting coordinator is usually responsible for tracking available scholarships, coordinating visits, expense reports, admissions requirements, working with compliance...

    Brief report on Hill game. For anyone thinking UA was playing a high school team; Hill is a top notch prep school, probably the best in Canada for lacrosse. It's coach Brodie Merrill is a legend in lacrosse & I believe a former Tewarton winner. Some of the players are high school age; but most are post high school and equivalent to college freshman. Scott Marr's son who we will see Saturday with John Hopkins played a year @ Hill. Anyhow, I though UA pretty much out played Hill in every facet last night. I had the score something like 16/17 to 8. UA played pretty much everyone and rotated and mixed lines both offensively and defensively pretty much every series. Last years returnees played the least (many hardly at all) as freshman and sophomores got most of the minutes; especially on attack and midfield. With so much rotation it was hard to tell if the lines were fixed and who were paired with who. UA's passing at times was sloppy maybe because players were not always paired with familiar lines and UA was NOT very good with ground balls. Most of Hill's scores were a result of these issues in my thoughts; and UA would have even scored more with a little better passing and doing a better job of picking ground balls. But overall I was very impressed with UA's performance. #9(McComber), #25 (???????), #22 (????????) were freshman offensively who stood out; and #43(Tanner Hay) played good D and got some minutes @ LSM on the face-off wing. Many of the sophomores who saw limited action last year also stood out; and #8 (McGrath) and #12 (Brown) a JR. & SR. with limited minutes in the past look awfully GOOD to me. It will be interesting to see how this group does against Hopkins and Army this weekend.

    https://m.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-football-13297390.php?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Read it and weep... If excuses were wins Gattuso would be the best coach in the caa. Always crying about youth this, hurt that, penalties over there... Clown.
