    Not that I care one iota; but "mayhem's" record at Mt. St. Mary was NOT awe-inspiring and a barely .5OO record and second round knock-out in the 2nd/3rd worse conference in the country. GW desperate obviously; but I am not sure exactly what everyone see's in JC. He promised mayhem and a fast passed offense and won most of their games on the defensive end. I think lcc had a higher scoring average under pathos. Probably wrong about all of this, as I don't follow that school very close; but anything that hurts them makes me happy {sorry Jimbo, not as magnanimous as you--no offense intended.}

    Probably not a surprise after their amazing win over Virginia in the NCAA tourney last year. Oh, wait. That was Odom and not Boals? Bleh. At SBU for three years and then moves on.

    Did not hear this. Wow. I guess alma mater and MAC is a draw. Don't ever worry about CB going to his alma mater to coach, Dowling closed two years ago.😝

    So Boals is off the his Alma mater in the MAC and Ohio. Don't know what effects this will have on the SBU roster, but have to think that it will set them back a little.

    Times-Union reported yesterday the steelwork of ETEC is complete https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Steel-construction-done-on-UAlbany-s-huge-ETEC-13689944.php#photo-17072995 Construction on the steel structure of University at Albany's new Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurship Complex (ETEC) is complete — less than a year after ground was broken. The final steel beam was placed Feb. 14. The $180 million facility on on the Harriman Campus will be the largest instructional building on UAlbany's Uptown Campus. It will include classrooms, research labs, an emergency preparedness situation room, weather map and observation facilities, business and technology transfer offices and conference facilities. A vast geothermal well field on the site will reduce heating and cooling costs as well as the reliance on fossil fuels, according to the university. Time lapse of construction

    I grew up in Binghamton - they seldom get the lake effect snow. It passes across the state through Syracuse and down north of Oneonta down into the Catskills, BUT the kids are surely use to it! I'll be nice and warm watching it on the computer!

    Partly, I think it is just how crazy this year is. The top 4-5 teams seem to be separating themselves from the pack. I do think the AE is as down as I can ever remember. Even when the overall conference was weak, UA, UMBC, or Stony Brook had strong squads. That's one of the reasons, while I liked what I saw on Saturday, I don't think we should officially say all is right now. The defense is still giving up too many goals, face off consistency is still a huge issue, and while overall turnovers seem to be improving, too many just silly ones at bad times.

    I guess lowell worse than I thought. But Harvard like lowell is supposed to be very bad, beat BU who is getting top 20 votes. Just cannot figure this year. Maybe the only consistent is how bad the AmEast is. Hartford lost to a pretty poor Quinnipiac team. On the other hand UA beats a "very bad" lowell team and shows up again receiving top 20 votes after two weeks off the list. As someone on the blog said; wins against anybody effect ratings more than close loses to powers?

    Did not say they were great on the wings; only better than pretty much every other wing rotation yesterday. And I absolutely agree with you they are a liability on close D. So have most of the two way middies, the last couple of years. Agree with 2018, used fewer two ways yesterday. Agree with coach in doing so; does not seem to have the horses to run two way middies any longer. Maybe just don't have the depth and/or skill to run two ways any longer; but I loved the strategy and it gave us a real advantage when we did have the kids and #s to do so.

    Exactly. If they can, and they can if there is money, there is NO doubt that with the amenities upgrade (e.g. firecode and bathroom codes), that building can go to 6500, and that is perfect IMHO.

    "Ground ball play has to improve and coordination on the face offs. Too many times the wings are on the wrong side of the ball either allowing an easy exit or a fast break." No kidding, I was screaming at them the entire game!!!!!! Man down is pathetic!! Same couple of guys are killing the squad. Time to make changes! I like Tehoka coming in as a middie, he even stayed on Def a couple of times.

    Yes, blow them out, but keep improving. Our man down defense is allowing opponents to score 55% of the time. That has to get better. No idea why that isn't getting addressed. It is so obvious what the problems are. If what I saw on the replay, of fewer two way middies, I like it a lot. Ground ball play has to improve and coordination on the face offs. Too many times the wings are on the wrong side of the ball either allowing an easy exit or a fast break.

    Tried to watch the replay after I got home; but it was not up last night. So solely based on my live perspective, have to complain about a couple of things. Face-offs were terrible and a number of new players played wing yesterday (for the first time I think) and IMHO they were worse than the kids used before.The Burgmasters' (who have been @ wing sparingly this year) were the only wings who showed me anything yesterday. I also thought ground balls were terrible; felt worse than the 31-37 stats reported. Not only did the wings hardly get any; we gave up at least 2 EASY goals on ground balls that squirted out of scrums to wide open mass players. 2018 said we should have won 20-5, and I agree; if we had done a better job on ground balls, mass would have scored less and UA more. Also, when mass made a run in the fourth, it was against some newbies on defense. However, I do not agree that mass is that bad a team. IMHO in a bad AmEast, they could finish 2nd or 3rd; partly because the league is just that bad and partly because I did not see mass yesterday being bad. Reserve the right to change my opinions, if I am able to watch the replay later.

    It looks like they’ve figured out where TN fits in to this offense. Some great passing going on and good point blank shooting.

    There is an updated master plan that is under his tenure... Athletic specific.
  40. 1 point
    The Master Plan is a university-wide document, so while the athletic department would've had input, it didn't have a free hand. And as I recall the SEFCU renovations were all about athletes and nothing to do with spectators, so if there are any seating/amenities improvements proposed they're recent. Edit - 2012 Master Plan.

    Most of the accolades Benson gives himself are not really even "his". Most were done by or ushered by other people in the University for athletics. I think most people know that he is not a coaches AD but an administrative AD. McElroy was a Coaches AD but let the administrative side of the house fall apart. Benson was brought in to be the other side of the spectrum supposedly focusing on fundraising and administrative stuff. He also sold himself as someone who would increase community and fan involvement with the program. However the large fundraising that they have done has actually been the work of Development (schools fundraising arm) not Benson. GDAC is actually under Development and is partially under Athletics (joint venture). Securing the scoreboard funds, the football stadium naming rights were also key things that were done by Development. We have more professional season tickets with pictures. And that's really cool but we no longer see much if any advertising on billboards or TV as we originally did when he first got here. There are also few if none GDAC listening sessions etc. (Because we would all be there to complain I'm sure....) There is also no interaction with fans at the games at GDAC area. They now use money to pay for security to kick us out of a basketball game 5 minutes after it ends. And have yet to tell anyone publicly why they are doing that. Then the whole Gattuso thing.... You have that whole seat debacle with the stadium where they told us we couldn't bring in our seats and then retract a year after when they realized they didn't know what they were doing. (Making up that it was UPD) They also charge for parking which I can tell you no other America East School does and barely any school that I go visit for away basketball games does. I truly can't think of the last non UA college sporting event I went to that charged parking. (And the fact that they jack the price for good games is price gouging..) A lot of unkept promises from when he was hired. And agreed as others have pointed out...infact seems worse in many ways. Especially the operations side ...still as bad as it was under McElroy.. we just are now paying more for bad services (but pretty tickets). Hmm I think we got the short end of the stick..
