  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Recruiting - 2020

    Offer to Jalen Harris, JUCO PG from Casper College http://verbalcommits.com/players/jalen-harris-ca
  5. 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
  6. After our last win, Massey now has us slight favorites in the next two games, and much closer underdogs in the last three (over 30% chance to win). All year I haven't figured out the love for Stony Brook in the polls (wins over 2-5 Bryant, 1-5 Wagner. 3-4 Fordham and 1-5 Rhode Island)
  7. The CAA had six teams in the top 25 last week. Five of them lost (#2 JMU beat #5 Villanova) all to other CAA teams
  8. Carter is a junior, from Bishop Kearney HS in Rochester, last year scored 16 ppg for Colby CC in Kansas. In 2017-18 he scored 13 ppg for Mohawk Valley CC in Utica. Had no D-I offers but asked Will if he could walk on, he’s a good student so sure.
  9. URI lost to the Gobblers 34-17 today. Best 1-5 team in the nation?
  10. Well, I would’ve called that incomplete, but we’ll take it
  11. That second fumble the QB was trying to pick the ball up without looking at it. Radio is 103.9 WPBZ on the Radio Pup app that I also use for Rodger’s usual station
  12. Whatever line they're using on AGS, it's Albany @ #10 Towson (-11) - O/u: 60.5 (TOW 35.75, ALB 24.75) Massey has Towson by 14, Sagarin by about 13
  13. VB beats Stony Brook tonight, 20-18 in the fifth. Cider and donuts in the athletic dept. Monday
  14. TU story today also reports on injuries Freshman Trey Hutcheson has a finger injury that will require a brace for nine weeks. "He's been told he can try to (play)," Brown said, "but he can't take that brace off." Freshman Sam Shafer is out because of a groin injury and is expected to return in a week. Junior guard JoJo Anderson will have knee surgery Oct. 22 and has yet to take the court since practice officially started Oct. 4. "He wants to play," Brown said. "He's hoping they can salvage the meniscus, play the season, and fix the ACL in March." Lauderdale and Rizzuto May be back this weekend
  15. T-U today https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-football-faces-Flacco-this-weekend-14503748.php Gattuso compares Flacco to Doug Flutie, when GG and Penn St. played BC in 1982 "I remember tackling him, thinking it was a sack, and I'll never forget it,'' Gattuso said. "I sack him and I get up to celebrate and the ref said, 'He threw the ball, son,' and I look up and the guy's running down the field."
  16. Starting in men’s D-I only this year, line moves from 20’9” to 22’1-3/4” (6.75 m, the FIBA distance)
  17. Will on radio today. Coaches vs Cancer on Monday. First practice tomorrow (new rule, 42 days before 1st game, 30-practice limit) Likes the new 3-point line, our guys shot from two steps behind the line anyway. Everybody’s gotten better. Lauderdale has lost 20 lbs, should be quicker and able to play more minutes. JoJo and Hansen are D-I double digit scorers and should be able to get to the rim. We need to be able to create off the dribble more.
  18. T-U story on the O-line UAlbany football trusts Royster to watch blind side
  19. Albany was to play Syracuse tonight but the game was cancelled due to a forecast of thunderstorms. I guess it was too hard to move the game into the Dome. Will not be rescheduled
  20. Dylan Burns’ four field goals win him the CAA Special Teams Player of the Week. His 86.4% of extra points made ranks 287 of about 340 in all Division I. His FG % is ranked tied for 127
  21. Not 1 minute before kickoff. Closer to eight. The band's playing the national anthem but the team's not even on the field yet (except the injured). The players' parents mostly arrived in Sec. 105 later. And I was up buying a water (because I can see my wife there without me.) Still shows how bad the crowd was that I can pick her out. SEFCU Arena fills in late the same way.
