  1. Kaloyeros Charged

    When I spoke to our President at the lacrosse finals, the idea of nano coming back was a ship sailed mentality. Maybe he was playing coy. Who knows. But unless the debt is relieved by the State, no rational admin would take that on in a time period where state funding is decreasing. How the hell did nano take on so much debt. Wow, just silly.
  2. I got your point and I also know that the school regularly effs up the roster for football for unknown reasons. Maybe take in some air instead of capitalizing words and using punctuation to prove you are right. For the record, camp hasn’t begun Carry on. 🤦‍♂️
  3. Not sure, but to your point, Serbin is definitely coming based on just watching his feed on Twitter. Posted the CAA best conference ranking and changed his profile from “Ath” to “WR” this week. So, he’s in. I also don’t think it’s a walk on thing with him. This could be a kid who sneaks up on us and becomes a player to watch.
  4. Verbal Commitment: Elijah Ayers 6'3 180 CB from Springfield, MA. Was All-Western Mass 1st team pick his junior year. 4.49 40 and a 11.0 100m dash. Fast as heck. https://twitter.com/lijahayers12 https://www.hudl.com/video/3/6233874/5a11c41fc11b700d5cb67f31

    Kid is a beast.
  6. No. Already committed to Cornell
  7. Recruiting - 2018

    Agreed. I’d like to see a 10 man rotation with 2 guys getting 30 min each, 5 with 20 min, 3 splitting the other 40 min. Roundabout, of course.

    Agreed on De Souza. And Miller will play. Senior leader with A-10 game experience

    This is pretty big news. While a fully funded scholarship that is endowed for life is about 750k-1mill, endowing even a portion of a full ride frees up money for other uses. So, it seems we have 8 scholarships at least partially endowed for lacrosse according to this article. There are 12.6 allowable scholarships in D I lax, per team.

    Or a paper just listing kids where they won't play... Not everyone is a PG.

    As an FYI, you have to pay back your signing bonus at any reputable company. Usually divided by service years. Other than that, it’s the way TD went out and where he’s going that miffs many.
  12. Minimum of a .500 season. If we get OL play and QB play, 7-4. I'd be ecstatic with anything more, outright overachieving if making the playoffs. This team is edging closer to relevance.
  13. Would be a blow if Solt was not on the roster. According to Renninger's twitter page, he's still coming to UA. Retweeted the equipment room delivery video. Some notes: Julian Desire is a former walk-on (who red-shirted) player at Pittsburgh. He's a DL w/ three years of eligibility. Probably more of an end or OLB. Kareem Gibson is the DB transfer from UVA. Played some significant minutes in 2016. Think he was hurt in 2017. Elijah Haynes is a 6'2 210 DE/OLB who was in the Top 100 Virginia list. We added TWO Temple transfers: Julian Conover- a walkon who has three years left. Played at Don Bosco in HS. 6'3 220 OLB. We added, as noted a few days ago, Benson Israel. Jaymare Fleming was a late add out of Benedictine Prep, a military academy in Virginia. Produces some great athletes. He's an OL. https://www.benedictinecollegeprep.org/news/post/~post/12-for-12 I don't see Justin Walker on the roster...and I hope that's not the case. He's a Senior and was a highly productive transfer last year. He played in the Spring Game so I hope he's not a casualty, academic or otherwise. QBs- As we know, Joe Davis and Will Fiacchi weren't messing around and he brought in a stable to compete. We have two seniors, Sussman and Testerverde. Since Testerverde didn't just take the job from Brunson in camp, I think it is an open competition including newcomer Nyc Burns...and it would not shock me to see Nyc end up our starter at some point in the season. Jake Thompson, who had three years left, transferred to St John's Fisher and I think that's a great move for him. No doubt WIll Fiacchi helped him get that transfer (he coached there). Going forward, Brunson has two years, Burns has 3 years, Undercuffler and Zenelovic (both big boys) have four years and are likely redshirts. Ta'von Granison is a multi-faceted player and more likely a wildcat and used as a WR/DB (just a guess). Marlon Jett Serbin still has UA on his twitter...and as an athlete even though he played QB. I can see him being a WR/Safety. Kid has a physical body ready to go now. Hopefully we still see him on the completed roster. Running backs- interesting- they have EIH as a Sr. That's why this roster is definitely NOT complete, he's a RS Jr. We look VERY thin at the position. I mean, we do have two studs in Ibitoken and Mofor...but not much after that for depth (two guys).
  14. Video for season tix on Twitter. Gattuso talked about how we should be great on the line.
