  1. Officially 8500, highest FB attendance 9052 though we’ve thought over 11K for some games. Wiki says official lax capacity is 6394, the UNC game drew 6472. Means they must figure the berm is sized for 2100
  2. Which is what I suggested in post #3. But do the numbers work for a one-day event? Also curious if temp bleachers are made that can be placed on as steep a slope as the berm.
  3. We saw the UNC game, how do you increase that crowd by 50%? Unless he expects no one to watch both games
  4. What Marr said in the story Marr seemed certain if UAlbany reaches the NCAA Tournament in 2023, the Great Danes will be placed in the Albany bracket, rather than the one in Annapolis. “It’d be pretty unusual if we were to get to that point, be in the tournament that year, that we wouldn’t be in that (Albany) bracket,” Marr said. “I’ve had the pleasure of playing in the quarterfinals a number of times, as a player, as a coach … They try to do their best to put you in that bracket.”

  6. Is 6400 enough for a quarterfinal doubleheader? Especially if Syracuse is in our bracket? Might we have promised a screen so fans could sit on the berm, or temp endzone seats behind it?
  7. So an 8-week season would start by 2/20 (with a bye week) or 2/27
  8. Today’s TU, Gattuso adjusts to new normal https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-football-coach-adjusts-to-new-normal-15506071.php?utm_campaign=CMS Sharing Tools (Premium)&utm_source=share-by-email&utm_medium=email
  9. Channel 13 reports Malachi de Sousa will take his talents to Lawrenceville NJ, will sit one year then play two for Rider
  10. Yes, it's posted on the Football web site, under Great Dane TV, On Demand
  11. FWIW, Albany 24th in the preseason AGS http://thefcswedge.com/ags-poll/ags-poll-preseason-2020-top-25-results/
  12. That “56%” is the MARGINAL tax rate. Swedish State income tax is 20% on taxable (not gross) income above about $50,000. The rest is municipal, church, and burial taxes. For comparison just the Federal US marginal rate in the 1950s was 70%. And despite their high taxes the Scandinavian peoples usually are found to have much higher happiness/life satisfaction levels than the US
  13.

  14. Cropping dog ears for cosmetic purposes is banned in Australia, much of Europe, and all but two Canadian provinces. In America the Animal Hospital Association has opposed it since 1993, the Veterinary Association since 2008. The AKC doesn’t penalize dogs which are not cropped. So unless you’re taking your Great Dane on a boar hunt, there’s no reason to crop their ears
  15. T-U reports the SIena will have athletes report August 17, MAAC competition to begin Sept. 11. OTOH RPI has cancelled all fall intercollegiate competition. No decision yet on winter and spring sports.

  21. Lot of letters. Men volleyball is in EIVA, swimming in CCSA, men fencing in MACFA. Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Fencing Association Tennis was in the ASun
  22. But of those 17 sports, two are fencing, two are tennis, one is men’s volleyball and one is swimming, none of which are in AE
