  1. We played Cortland eighteen times, all but one year between 1976 and 1994. We were 8-10
  2. Where are the students? Does the T-U provide an answer? Well, it's been a while since the last "UAlbany students are here to party" story. Surprised they didn't mention Kegs & Eggs. https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Two-counties-two-huge-UAlbany-related-parties-14550378.php For the unsubscribed, two 1000-person parties, one in Menands and one in Chatham, Saturday afternoon while the game was on. Broken up early, no arrests, but no research on how many were from Albany or from other places. Eighteen police agencies responded to an unsanctioned party in a warehouse parking lot in Menands at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, where police believe up to 1,000 people attended. Around the same time, residents in the area of Clark Road in Chatham reported a huge house party. The Columbia County Sheriff's Office responded at 5:40 p.m. and also found up to 1,000 people, many of whom were UAlbany students who had been bused to the rental property some 40 minutes south of campus.
  3. 2021 Syracuse game has been moved to 9/18. On 9/4 we instead travel to a tougher team - North Dakota State.
  4. Wanted to go with #2, but giddiness is on a slow boil. Massey has our 8-win odds up to 22.65%, favored over Maine and < touchdown dogs to the rest. Sagarin has us almost even with all four opponents. nobowls.com bracketology has us with a “Bubble burst” Collegesportsmadness.com projects us with a first round game at Northern Iowa for the right to travel to the Fabulous Fargodome for North Dakota State. A long way from six weeks ago
  5. University release says this was the SIXTH-largest crowd at Casey Stadium, not second. Most homecomings have been near sellouts until last year. The missed XP was, again, a low snap. I guess he doesn’t adjust well. The other kicks were solid The URI QB didn’t impress me much, a lot of his yards from throwing high and let the 6’3” WR jump for it.
  6. AGS says the line is us -7. O/U is 50. I think I'd take the over TU story calls this our "Revenge Tour" https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-football-seeks-revenge-against-Rhode-14545484.php Mencer said head coach Greg Gattuso didn't play up the revenge angle during practice this week. "Definitely not," Mencer said. "This is definitely a players' thing. We can't stand for this. We're not going to go out like that, especially the seniors. We've got something to prove."
  7. My son-in-law has to work tomorrow, so if anybody needs a ticket in the gold section, msg me.
  8. EIH had TD runs of 24 and 73 yards vs Western Carolina on 9/28, but pulled a hamstring with 40 yards to go on the last one and hasn't played since.
  9. UAlbany football vs. Rhode Island is wide receiver showcase - TU https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-football-vs-Rhode-Island-is-wide-14543166.php The University at Albany football program made the proclamation from its Twitter account. "The Top WR Duo in the @CAAFootball Jerah Reeves and Juwan Green," the Great Danes tweeted on Tuesday. Rhode Island's Isaiah Coulter and Aaron Parker might have something to say about that. Arguably the two best wide receiver tandems in the Colonial Athletic Association will face each other on Saturday when UAlbany takes on URI at 3:30 p.m. at Casey Stadium. They're the CAA's top four players in receptions. Parker leads the league with 47 catches, followed by Green and Reeves with 46 each. Coulter is close behind in fourth with 43. Green and Reeves have combined for 12 touchdowns, best in the CAA. Coulter and Parker, who are first cousins from Maryland, have 10 scores between them. Coulter, Green and Parker all average at least 100 yards receiving per game, while Reeves is at 80.7 per contest. "I think the numbers speak for themselves,'' Reeves said. "We've played very well. They've played very well. There's an opportunity where we finally get to meet up, so I'll take myself and Juwan over anybody, and D-Mac (UAlbany wide receiver Donovan McDonald). He's explosive as well. I'll take us over anybody." UAlbany head coach Greg Gattuso pointed out the CAA has abundant talent at wide receiver with UAlbany and URI's duos among them. "I think they're certainly in the conversation,'' he said. "Are they the best? We'll know this week. It'll be a nice elimination battle. I think these two guys with Rhode Island have been doing it together for a period of time." Coulter and Parker blistered UAlbany in a 45-26 victory in Rhode Island last year. Parker had nine catches for 146 yards and a touchdown while Coulter added nine receptions for 109 yards and a score. The UAlbany secondary had trouble dealing with their size and speed. Coulter is 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds and Parker is 6-3 and 208. Asked what the Great Danes learned from that game, safety Hayden Specht replied, "Just how good of players they are. Last year, we didn't really recognize that going into the game and we paid for that. This week and this year, we're really focusing on taking them out of their game plan and focus on getting the 'W'." Green didn't play in last year's meeting with URI because he was still having an NCAA eligibility issue cleared up. He said he doesn't view this game as a personal challenge between wide receivers. "That’s not something we set out to do in our gameplan,'' Green said. "What we focus on is what we control. We control our offense. They control their offense. So at the end of the day, we just look to do our job better than they do their job." Green said URI has "very aggressive" cornerbacks, much like the rest of the CAA. "We've just got to match their intensity and physicality,'' Green said. "Really, we want to be more physical than them." Green and Reeves have developed an excellent rapport with UAlbany redshirt freshman quarterback Jeff Undercuffler, who is tied for second in the Football Championship Subdivision with 20 touchdown passes.Meanwhile, URI has a different quarterback than last year in redshirt junior Vito Priore, who leads the CAA with 333.8 passing yards per game. He's more of a pocket quarterback than JaJuan Lawson, whom he replaced. Gattuso said Priore reminds him of former UAlbany quarterback Vince Testaverde because of his gunslinger mentality. "Their quarterback will give (Coulter and Parker) a chance to just go up and get the ball,'' Specht said. "That's what they did last year and we're expecting them to do that again this year."
  10. Longtime Albany assistant Ryan McCarthy just had the interim tag removed as head coach at Central Connecticut
  11. If we want to keep JUC around, I hope somebody teaches him that when you dive, it’s feet first, not headfirst like on this Ch 13 videohttps://wnyt.com/sports/undercuffler-named-caa-co-offensive-player-of-the-week/5524784/?cat=256 And hang onto the ball!
  12. Maybe, but Massey has us slight favorites in the next two games, not prohibitive dogs in the last three. Maine doesn't seem to be playing well. Delaware got blasted by Elon when they lost their QB to a targeting hit. If this team is really getting it together. we'll just have to see. One at a time.
  13. Getting votes in the polls! 38th in the STATS/FCS poll and 32nd in the AGS poll. None yet in the Coaches' Poll. Also, Massey now gives Albany an 11.13% chance of getting to eight wins, up from 0.48% last week. That's still only a 1 in 9 shot to win 4 of the next 5 games, but still... Besides, some have commented that with the CAA's poor showing in the 2018 playoffs, eight wins might not be enough for an at-large bid in a twelve-game season.
  14. Recruiting - 2020

    Offer to Jalen Harris, JUCO PG from Casper College http://verbalcommits.com/players/jalen-harris-ca
  15. SRO at sun-splashed Alumni Turf Field as Albany field hockey hosted #1 North Carolina. We scored in the 1st quarter, but UNC got three in the 2nd and one in the 4th. A lot of Tarheel fans in the crowd. Official attendance was 289, but a lot of fans on the hill and behind the fences. T-U story said they've been coming here to make travel to league games with Syracuse worthwhile
