    College basketball games are 40 minutes and with 5 players on the floor that means there are 200 minutes to go around. Last night we played freshman for 101 of those 200 minutes. As good as our freshman our, unless they're named Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett, we're going to struggle early in the season. I'm surprised at the reactions to Lulka. Maybe we all expected him to come with a cape, a big "S" on his shirt and fly around Sefcu Arena. I thought he's been pretty solid for his first two games - Avg 9PPG, 6 RPG while shooting over 58% from the floor. He showed a couple of nice post moves. Right now, our offense is no where near organized enough to get him consistent touches in the post.

    Lets not forget that with Joe and David on the roster we did win 67 game in 3 seasons and they were true Student/athletes!!!! We should appreciate them for their accomplishments. Our standard has become the NCAAs so they did fall short there but they really had a good run. I wish them the BEST and hope they are not disappointed at the end of next season.

    I'm pretty sure that's our role in those whole thing, isn't it?. We're not players and we're not coaches. We watch youtube clips and look up the 3pt percentages of our recruits. Then next year we'll drive through snowstorms to away games. We'll live and die with each foul call and then won't be able to talk the next day from screaming. We're fanatics, that's just what we do.

    So Rizzuto just strolls into the 9th game of the season and, after not playing a minute of D1 basketball drops 13 pts, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. If there are any other Rizzuot/Iatis out there we should totally offer them a scholarship. Also, nice find of Fruscio to set up his score. Best game of the year for Hank. I'm not sure what the MAAC did to Ahmad Clark but had 30 against Canisius and 29 against Monmouth. There were stretches of Ahmad and four frosh out there. That's a good sign. The zone in the first half was interesting. Made rebounding tough though. Monmouth is good for what ails you but a solid step in the right direction.

    I can't remember a year when we've had this many interesting story lines going into a season. -Son of an NFL QB might be our starting QB -Hanks coming back from injury -Former starting QB and Punter might be starting at LB -Former basketball player as a Tight End. -Click still banned by Gattuso on Twitter.

    We had a putrid home loss against Harvard to go 2-6 in the first 8 games of the 2005-06 season. I don't remember how the rest of that year went.

    Jus saw that. Awesome. Anyone saying this isn’t good for Albany is insane. I’m still not happy they left...but we have two kids that are first guys or so off the bench for the national champs and a top ranked ACC team. Brown did a great job getting and coaching these kids.

    Yup, yup and yup. It isn't just this year either. If you look over the last couple of seasons they've outperformed us in in the CAA. To me, that's the capper. If both programs were struggling, you could say the CAA is tough ,etc. The fact that they are doing well and maintaining it, really shines a light on us being in the cellar.

    And I have noticed that our fellow SUNY brethren Stony Brook, are playing great ball this season including destroying URI today 52-14. Just makes our pathetic season look even worse. Ready for BB!

    Your honor(s), I'd like to submit exhibit #147 into evidence to support the charges of the thread herein, where the defendant Gattuso has been charged with the destruction of an entire football program and demoralizing an entire fan base of seasoned vets into not bothering with attending games. Exhibit 147 = Homecoming Massacre of 2018

    They had the longest winning streak in the country until tonight. The way I look at it. Albany beats Morgan State - Morgan State beat North Carolina A+T - North Carolina A+T beat ECU - ECU beat North Carolina - North Carolina just beat Pitt. That means, we're better than Pitt. Simple.

    Siena's AD opined that the game should be at the TUC because it is a community game and that the TUC would allow more fans to see the game. This rationale or explanation would be furthered if the schools played the game twice in one season (once at the TUC and once at SEFCU) or if the game were played once a year with the game being treated as a neutral game for Siena and not in either schools' season-ticket package. Indeed, were the game treated as a neutral game, even more community members would have access to seats because it would not be included in Siena's season ticket package. What Siena's AD is really saying is that this is a community game for Siena season ticket holders. The position taken by the Siena athletic director is offensive, one-sided, and selfish. I want nothing to do with their basketball program or school. Benson has represented our interests well, but I am not so sure Siena's AD has done the same for his school.

    Related to complaints and suggestions above, new hires at the Athletic Department: Leslie Moore, Associate AD for Facilities, Scheduling and Operations, promoted from Assistant - your complaints here. Erika Kenney, Assistant AD for Ticketing and Group Sales - hope that's selling tickets, not ticketing cars in the parking lot John Reilly, Assistant AD for Athletic Communications - assumes there's something they want to communicate, unless his job is to delete complaining emails http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211735394 Sorry if I'm getting cynical

    The fire Gattuso and/or Benson thread seems to be still going strong over on Fall/football etc. But I decided to post my comments here as more than football is at stake. See Clacks negative assessment of football, title IX, facilities ALL right-on. In Clack's post, he does give props to Benson on GDAC and I also agree with him there; but he says Benson is hard to judge overall because COMMUNICATIONS on facilities, resource allocations, title IX are pretty much non-existent. And here-in rests my biggest concerns. Does Benson think the title IX issues are just going to evaporate???? Everything is always such a big secret?? Going back to the "bag and stadium seat" fiasco; a committee of administrators, students, fans, community leaders, campus police, etc. could have avoided so much embarrassment and BAD feelings. On these larger issues of coaching concerns , title IX, facilities, and resource management; COMMUNICATIONS AND COMMUNITY/FAN INVOLVEMENT are even more vital!

    I'm new to the board but have followed our team for years. Regarding defense: I cringe when our 5 is above the foul line and our point is left with their 4 or 5 underneath. Hank moves well but his game is patrolling near the hoop. Trying to trap out front should be the exception, not the rule. Can't count the number of times our bigs leave their post only to have the ball dumped in for an easy layup. Also, BU moved the ball well. No unnecessary dribbling... led to solid looks. If we play zone, need to move faster- Can not allow easy three point looks. BU was exceptionally hot in the first half but still there needs to be more in the face. Additionally, we must have two or more positioned to haul in the rebound. Offense looked best when Malachie was in there. He is long and creates opportunities. Healy a gamer. I though Ahmad played well, although he missed a couple of easy layins. On the other hand, I agree with the board that he trying too hard. Some shots are not meant to be. My line up would be Healy, De Sousa, Clark, Campbell and Luka. Campbell plays 4 and is only allowed to drive and shoot bank shots 10 feet in. Coach still hasn't broken the bad habit of chewing a guy out on the sideline. Looks bad and doesn't get a the affect sought. Ditto- for the foot stomp.

    I don't need to have designed, built or driven a train to know that when it goes off the tracks something went wrong. Maybe the train was going too fast, maybe something was on the tracks, maybe something on the train broke, maybe a rail failed. If a plane crashes into the side of a mountain I don't have to be an aeronautical engineer or a pilot to know something went wrong. If a team is 1-8 over its last 9 games and just got blown out by the only team selected below us on the preseason poll, I don't need to be a former player or coach to know something is wrong. Former players and coaches may have better insights into inner workings, but it does not take away from others who can see and analyze. I have a very good friend who is a successful former head coach of a sport I know almost nothing about. This former coach asked me what I saw at one of the games....wanted my opinion. Gave my opinion. The coach said I was absolutely right and had been harping on the team to correct it. Never played or coached that sport except for a few PE classes in HS. I've watched football religiously for nearly 60 years. You learn stuff.

    Listen. Everyone on this board , myself included, loves the Danes and hope's they win every game in every sport. I will venture to say most on here are multi season ticket holders that donate hundreds if not thousands of dollars to the school. I for one love your updates and posts and hope u continue them . However Coach G is a disaster. No game plan. Several mistakes and that's on him. The problem is , he never thinks it's on him. 100 percent of us this board hope we wins the next 12 games and wins the national championship, but even you need to admit we r not getting better. and maybe getting worse. I for one can see it in the defense scheme and again thats on him, not the players and that's what makes me extremely upset.

    President of Siena gets up to the podium and welcomes J. Christian to Olean...they don't even know as a program what city they are in. No wonder they couldn't find their ass with both hands trying to fire Patsos and hire a new coach.

    Antonio Rizzuto - Player of the year Antonio Rizzuto, Northeastern, 6-3, sr.: Solidified his standing as one of the best players to come out of York County with another stellar season. He averaged a YAIAA-best 23.4 points per game, knocking down 61 percent of his shots inside the arc. A two-time GameTimePA first-team all-star, he sank a YAIAA-best 102 3-pointers and knocked down 44 percent of those attempts. He also averaged eight rebounds per contest. Undercut while attempting a layup in the postseason, he played in the final six games of his career with a fractured tailbone. He finished his career with 1,565 points, ranking third on the school's all-time list. Rizzuto has signed to play at the University at Albany.
