  1. I'd pay UA an additional $100 for them to stream (properly!) all MBB and FB games. I'm sure many of us would. It's 2018. You don't need a lot of equipment or a masters in streaming...it's stupid easy. Just need to make the initial investment. Or at least upload the games after the fact to the site or something so we can watch later so they don't have to actually 'stream' anything which would be even cheaper. Then we can just pretend, as a forum community, that a 1PM game is actually at 5PM lol. It's basically what I do with Jets games and NFL GamePass.
  2. Don't know about the Fox ones...do you need a cable TV subscription? How about ACC Extra? And WTH is Yurview?
  3. Our women's team is the Bruin. They're the Maple Leaf (leaf is a great term in this instance):

    Yep. Benson shouldn't get any blame for anything. He put UA's and OUR interests first instead of caving to the so called 'community' game. I'm glad he didn't bite. Real glad.
  5. 2018/2019 Schedule

    I'd love a local game against St. Rose or HVCC. It's only been about their fan base. Always. Hah, I meant in general. Might be their first time here. But it seems like we play the following teams year in, year out...whether on the road or away. EDIT: I went back to my handy spreadsheet... (since going D1 including this years schedule with the majority of these being since 2010) Oneonta - 4x Dartmouth - 10x Holy Cross - 6x Canisius - 5x Monmouth - 5x Yale - 10x Iona - 4x Less concerned with Iona & Yale as they are actually usually pretty good teams lately which helps our SOS. At least we stopped playing Cornell and Colgate lol. Cornell - 7x Colgate - 13x
  6. 2018/2019 Schedule

    This I can agree with. Wouldn't mind some more variety. How many times are we going to play Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Canisius and Monmouth. Brown is probably reading this post and saying, "Damnit Eli...can't you be happy about anything?"

    lol. That made my snort in laughter.
  8. 2018/2019 Schedule

    I think a 17 year old kid also desires to actually be competitive instead of facing a team of 5 future NBA'ers and losing by 40. At least that would be me. I play in a co-ed softball league (I know, I know, not the same as D1 sports but competition IS competition) and games where the competition level is somewhat even are far more enjoyable than games where the other team should clearly be a league down (if we're smackin them in the mouth) or a league up (if we're getting mercy ruled). Say what you want but my point is we had an epic schedule last year with a lot of 'strong' teams which turned out to be duds. It didn't matter in the end because we didn't win the AE tourney but what the schedule ended up being would have absolutely given us a crap seed in the dance.
  9. 2018/2019 Schedule

    Let's not be hasty. Some of those teams may end up being good. Last years schedule in August/September was AWESOME. Turned out to be complete crap.

    https://dailygazette.com/article/2018/08/09/siena-ualbany-men-s-basketball-programs-won-t-play-albany-cup-in-2018 Benson FTW! Kicked Siena to the curb AND has managed to raise a ton of money for our programs since arriving. His only blemish, IMO, is extending Gattuso without knowing if we are going to be competitive. And maybe overall department communications (bag policy, etc.) although those are somewhat small potatoes in the big picture.
  11. 2018/2019 Schedule

    I agree on the schedule. Being we replaced 75% of the roster, I don't want a typical schedule and then go out and win 5 games the whole year and crush kids' confidence.

    Final update of 2018 as VC isn't 100% up to date. Not that we have roster room or anything but was curious if some of the guys reclassified that we offered but didn't get, etc. Quinlan Bennett - Committed to Triton College per his twitter Jordan Starr - Signed with Masters (NAIA) to play for his father Winslow Martin II - Can't find much traces of this guy making any moves...no longer on VC...may have been treated for some type of cancer during last season? Wish the man health if that's the case!
