    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.

    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.

    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 Admin can promote UA being a football school but the reality is that has meant resources ($) taken away from other programs to support a flailing one, because we're a football school now... 🙄 I do agree though this is a bball thread.. 😁 so back to bball....can't wait!

    Guys. Why are we fighting? We’re all in this together. Don’t be like the rest of the world right now. This should be a safe, enjoyable space to root and discuss, not to belittle and tear down. We see enough of that elsewhere. We all want the same thing. UA Victories in all sports. Let’s act like it. Full stop.

    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.

    Hawai'i pays travel and room expenses, and we're allowed to schedule an extra game (home or another money game) if we want to. Without that incentive, how could they get a non-conference home game? Plus, a fun road trip for fans

    without knowing any of the details of the negotiations, a big pat on the back to Mark for his willingness to pass on this game/contract until an equitable offer is on the table ... during our early years of DI athletics this game mattered a whole lot more to UA than lcc, the table has turned ... "50-50 or walk" - the UA fan base and now administration have spoken

    3 year deal, 2-1 is fine. The community needs this game too much to let it die. SEFCU in 2018 TUC in 2019 SEFCU in 2020 Anything less should be a big fat no.

    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.

    A lot of people on this board were pretty happy we were able to pick up Ale Foster because of the grad transfer rule. Some were even saying Brown should even go out and get one or two more. Unfortunately this is the other side of that rule. People came in and poached our program. I find these two transfers out of the program to be very unfortunate I wonder if Joe would have stayed for his final year if they were able to make the dance in one of his first three years. I wouldn't put this on the same level of Logan Aronholt. I find this situation to be worse. Joe is a Local guy, great player, great teammate, leader, tough, all the things you want. I always found Logan to be soft and hide in big moments. I didn't think he was very dependable. I agree with the guys who said this is a bad look for future recruits too. It just lends itself to questions of why and how could this happen. But, for the current incoming guys and guys coming off their redshirt year, its a great opportunity. I was hoping Joe could show them the way before his 4 years was up, hopefully they don't follow his lead now.

    My very first thought when I saw this tonight was that this is what happens when your AD refuses to fund the team's post season. As a fan, I agree with most that the CIT and the CBI do not thrill me, but, I recall a post by Patch stating that the players wanted another game. If the AD doesn't support the players, why should we expect David and Joe to pass on the opportunity to play at a higher level. My second thought was that Patsos will be rushing to sign a new contract knowing we enter the season with only Campbell & Clark as returning players

    Olddog- 100% agree. We have some INSANE talent coming in...and they better just be ready to go. As a fan, I am hurt by Joe’s departure. I get it...but he won’t be anything more than a 6th-8th man on a Power 5 program. He could have played pro in Europe wherever he played his last year. He was a legacy guy...a local hero. Personally, the NCAA needs to get it’s $iena straight...work with the NBA to get rid of the one and done...and work on themselves to get the Grad Transfer rule abolished. It’s destroying low major and mid-major hoops...and the NCAA is forgetting what makes hoops so great. Wait until the not havin to sit a year rule goes into affect- forget about keeping stud players.

    Hopefully Lulka and Hanks can contribute and we can grab 2 solid bigs. No reason we shouldn't be good the question is how good can we be. It's David & Joe's last shot at the NCAAs, every freshman that has stayed 4years over the last 8 or 9 years has had at least 1 NCAA appearance.

    The complaining about each other is part of the fun of it though. Brown has gotten much better at it over the years. I love hearing his little subtle jabs during interviews that if you weren't a real fan you wouldn't realize he was pointing directly across town.

    Spoken like someone that doesn't understand CB and what drives him. I don't think incentives (money) drives him at all or he would have left. He continues to win games, qualify for post season play and make sure that he helps produce Student/athletes that represent UA well. I don't think he has ever had an "if you don't care I don't care attitude". This year he played WVU in an exhibition, scrimmaged Buffalo so he seeks competition and that's seemingly what drives him. When he got the job he made a commitment to consistently keep UA near the top of the AE, I think he thought he had depth and redshirted the 3 Aussies (1 medical) and I think they might have helped but he tried to do what was best for them and the program. He's 67-33 over the last 3 (non NCAA) seasons and some fans think he's complacent that's a compliment to the program he took over where they were 19-57 in CB's first 2 1/2 seasons ( 1st year 7-13 taking over for Beeten). Hey, disappointing season at 22-10 is a good sign! Let's see if CB can get some bigs to add to with what we have. It seems like a lot of depth on the perimeter.

    SportsCenter tweeted after the game about how Albany soundly beat UMBC a few weeks ago and it has been retweeted and liked thousands of times since. UMBC’s huge accomplishment is bringing recognition to our program too, and it’s great for the conference as a whole!!

    You are extremely irrational at the moment. Lol. UMBC did what no other team could have done in 135 tries. We also beat UMBC by 44 points this year. Stony Beat them by 30+. Crazy things happen. UVA plays UMBC 1000 times, they probably win 990. Crazy things happen. To say that UMBC winning has undone everything we've accomplished makes little sense. When UVM beat Cuse in a massive upset, did that set us back 15 years? Within a couple of years, we were making our debut in the big dance. UMBC will get a lot of recognition and that will be good for our conference. Mid-majors conferences are only as good as the results they produce in big game situations. I think this ultimately helps UA, and I think we could have an excellent team next year.
