  1. I’d still call it a huge waste of money
  2. Look, I applaud the ability to get the single largest public school athletic gift in NYS history. However, this is a waste of funds. I don't care how great your facilities are...no one wants to live in Vestal for 10 months a year from areas they would need to recruit to become a legit national powerhouse on a yearly basis, e.g. the deep south. These facilities are quite frankly better than MANY Power 5 facilities, including that of the SEC, Big 12, and ACC...regular baseball powerhouse leagues. If this gift was restricted to baseball only, i get it...not much they can do. But if not, this is a joke. If I were the soccer and lacrosse teams I would be pissed. They could have broken this up and made themselves a powerhouse, facility wise, in lax / soccer / baseball / softball / track and field, and built an indoor practice facility. Even bigger roadblock to get to consistent national prominence: academics. Coming off the heels of the basketball fiasco, no way are they lowering their standards that they would require to do what is necessary to become a power. I dunno...again, I applaud the ability to secure the gift...but I feel it is a waste of $$$.
  3. Well, we did go four wide quite often. So, I can forsee a rotation of: Tyler Odekoven 6' 180- 3 yrs eligibility Jalen Rima 6'1 205 (Northern Iowa)- 1 yr eligibility Chris Potts 6'3 196 (NEO- same school as Nyc Burns) - 2 yrs eligibilty Ricky Johns 6'3 195 (West Virginia)- 3 yrs eligibility Dev Holmes 5'9 160- 3 yrs eligibility Then you have the RS Kids who were highly rated (if they come back):. All four years left Mike Gray Jordan Irizarry Ricky Gamble Quite a competitive bunch...and JUC will have some good / great players to throw to for the next three years.
  4. 63 full rides. Split amongst 85 players but a total of 63 rides. Total team limit for active players, I believe, is 125...travel limited is set by the CAA...think it is in the 50's.
  5. Looks like they had a DB on campus over the weekend. Kid from Bridgeton Academy.
  6. I think we may have picked up West Virginia transfer Ricky Johns. Was a safety out of high school and they moved him to WR. Maybe he goes back. Top 25 kid out of Pennsylvania. Temple, Villanova, and West Virginia were his final three out of high school. Would make sense as a db.
  7. Wow. Damn. Well, if he stays the course, keeps his head in check, holy crap does Albany have a stable of receivers and kick return specialists.
  8. He took his time...good on him...but Chris Potts committed today. Excellent news and with what we have in the stable, Odekoven, the Northern Iowa transfer, and Potts...we have restocked the WR corps.
  9. We can only revisit if he get significant data points to revisit, most considerably consistent playing time. Otherwise it is a moot point. You made a wild statement that a kid isn't DI. You just don't happen to luck into what he did early on in the game at the DI level. Full stop.
  10. Lulka has been the biggest bust of our Aussies, if you are using this as your basis. Seriously...considering the expectations...tell me what he's done. For clarity, I don't think he's a bust either. But I am not so sure about your evaluation of talent.
