  1. Beyond good. Remember, Testerverde and Sussman graduate. Burns has 3 years left. To me the competition is Burns, Testerverde, and Brunson. Neither Brunson or Testerverde grabbed the position in spring ball. I mean, Coach even alluded to his frustrations that one didn’t go grab it. The two frosh signal callers would have been redshirted no matter what...so this gives us balance. Super excited, and Burns has played games so his biggest challenge will be learning the playbook and jelling with the guys. Frankly, without meeting the kid but going just off social media...I believe he will have zero issues with either task
  2. Grad Transfers - Will Brown

    Read this earlier today. Class act. Will only help recruiting. Our program comes off as Champs!
  3. Nope not him, though from his posts on Twitter he seems to be having a good time. The new recruit is a new adopted great Dane puppy
  4. Groundbreaking

    Please. This is nothing. The football stadium at Jax is a joke and they have zero facilities for Lax. So they are getting offices and lockerrooms? Not earth shattering. Doesnt move the needle at all and we are not getting a box arena. We need SEFCU renovated and an indoor practice facility, followed by the end zone facility for Football, which clears a ton of space to add sq footage for sports like lax. Kids will come to Albany for the tuition, Scott Marr, the style of play, playing in a stadium...and (can’t believe we can say this) playing in front of some of the best and largest fan bases in the nation. Not because of a lax only field house
  5. Siena under investigation..

    Agreed...but bottom line is Siena isn't giving the resources necessary.
  6. Recruiting - 2018

    Indeed. I actually like that someone posted Game tapes...full games. GIves you a better indicator. For example, it's VERY clear (except if you know JUCO's) that Starks played against a much higher level of competition than others. It's abundantly clear. What is also clear: It seems that defense is a lost art at the JUCO level.
  7. No message. Put in wrong spot. It’s in the 2018 thread
  8. Have to love a kid who wants to be here: https://twitter.com/NycholasBurns/status/996158919721570305 He does have an official with UT Martin next week.
  9. Recruiting - 2018

    Not a Campbell hater...but he had a terrible offensive year. Terrible. If he sticks to the "Charles-game" (15 feet in), he's going to be very effective. His outside game was just awful last year. I like Campbell alot...but i think he tried to do too much last year and it affected his entire game.
  10. Recruiting - 2018

    My prediction: it all comes down to two things 1) how quickly the kids pick up the system and 2) how much Coach (prodded by the staff) lets the leash out with what seems to be a talented but insanely inexperienced group. I prefer going 10 deep and losing OOC games if need be. This is about making a run this year but really building for next year and the year after. The four guys I’m interested in seeing what they bring right away: Rizzuto, Healy, Starks, and Fromm. I say that because how they go could say a lot about playing time. It’s going to be an interesting battle at every position with a lot of guys who can play a lot of roles. I really think we will see a lot of Villanova style offense with a big and guards abound. Rizzuto, Fromm, DeSouza, and Flory all look like they can post guys up. Same with Healy. My early guess is that French is versatile enough and Lulka such a highly touted straight “4”...that we will see those guys start at PF and Center...unless Coach really wants experience and D and starts Campbell at the 4. I think we see a lot of Campbell at the 4 as his offense won’t be as necessary this year. If Campbell starts on the bench, he’s the first 3-4 off and Lauderdale is the first true big off the bench. He reminds me a bit of a smoother Jimmy Covington. I think this is a year of spot time for Hanks (remember Puk was the same). Love Clark’s mindset and team attitude but he’s going to have to really fight for minutes. if De Souza plays any defense, he’s going to get many minutes. Both he and Rizzuto were players with a lot of hype and recruitment...but DeSouza is a straight stud at our level. Defense will get him time. I think we will have a balanced attack with Starks, Flory, Healy and Fromm. Bottom line would be great to see a guard or two redshirt and for the remainder of 1-3 positions playing 20-25 minutes a night
  11. you should put on ESPNU because Georgetown is currently rolling Hopkins.
  12. Richmond

    Traveling is not a big deal. They are chartering or taking commercial. 4 hours versus 3. Not a major difference Denver scares me a lot. Baptiste evens up Irelan, there D is stout.
  13. Richmond

    Denver dominated the first half. Nd the third qtr. now Denver in control. IMHO, the winner of the qtrfinal is going to win the title. Both these teams scare me and UA can beat anyone in the field.
