  1. Last Up: W (30-27) vs Morgan State Next Up: vs St. Francis (PA) Red Flash (1-2...lost to Lehigh 21-19 and Richmond 35-27...beat Delaware State 45-14) TV/Streaming: UAlbanySports Local Radio: N/A Morgan State is done for. Despite the win and the 30 points scored, UAlbany had a VERY bad showing IMO. We allowed Morgan State to get 422 yards of offense (we had 408). They gouged us for 229 yards rushing which is inexcusable. Testaverde threw 4 picks including 1 pick six and as a whole, the team threw 48 passes and only rushed 26 times which is also inexcusable. We should never be throwing that much. We had drive after drive of just pass after pass. It was literally 10 passes followed by a run followed by 10 more passes. We had some big plays on special teams and defense (recovered fumbles, HUGE 51yd field goal, etc.) but aside from one or two big plays, we would have lost the game. We must win this next game against SFU AND dominate them. If we have another tight game with this level of opponents, it's lights out on the season. If we can't beat teams like this, we will have no business beating teams in the CAA.
  2. Fact of the matter is Albany is VERY (extremely) fair weather. It is what it is. It'll be 3-4 decades before we see what we wish to see IMO. Right now, we need to focus on the product on the field which sucks. D96 hit the nail on the head...it won't get better until we clean house.
  3. Your annoying. "Period!!" I'm in agreement on the LBs. How many times did they get burned over the middle of the field? That has ZERO to do with the DL or their push. When our LBs are dropping into coverage, they are not making the adjustments necessary to pass guys off (in zone) or can't keep up with guys (in man to man) causing plays over the middle. Seriously dude...for someone who claims to know a crap ton about football you don't understand defense 101. Did you play on special teams only or something?
  4. Depends. We using his system or <insert scapegoat here>?
  5. Last Up: L (45-26) @ Rhode Island Next Up: vs Morgan State (0-2) TV/Streaming: UAlbanySports Local Radio: N/A So, after a decent end to the Pitt game (held them scoreless in the 2nd half after a bad first half), UAlbany laid an utterly disgusting egg against URI in week 2. It was ugly. Rock bottom type of ugly. Supposedly, we will be playing Gattuso' 'system' in week 3 (not sure what system we were employing the first 2 weeks) but being that this is the first home game, the system better work or NO ONE is going to come back to watch another game. Hell, I'm a die hard and I might not give the 2018 team another chance until they do something with the staff. IMO this game is a must win.
  6. We were taking about Holmes at the game. The thought is that he's so good he might get poached by a bigger program. No guarantee he sticks around for 4 years. But yeah, another so so win which leaves a lot to be desired in the confidence department. We're gonna get out doors blown off in the CAA and our offense which is putting up decent numbers won't be able to keep up.
  7. Our secondary is atrocious. Getting embarrassed and caught with their pants down every time.
  8. Refs completely just missed a personal foul (their guy when Suh on one of our guys while a pile was clearing). And then two guys on one of theirs and he out jumped both. Ridiculous.
  9. We can't stop a nose bleed on 3rd down. They are converting at like an 80% clip on 3rd and anything.
  10. I don't know who just called that series but that was good. Passes over the middle, in the flat, runs sprinkled in. That's what we need. Keep the defense off their toes by attacking every angle.
  11. HOF. Just stop. If I was the HC...even if I was defensive minded like Rex Ryan...if my OC was stinking up the joint I would take over 100% of the play calling duties IMMEDIATELY AT THE FIRST SIGN OF TROUBLE (we are now 3 games into 'trouble'). I am THE man. I am LITERALLY the top of the pyramid on a football team. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING goes through my headset and my microphone. The fact that GG keeps delegating the play calling instead of taking ownership is the BIGGEST indictment of who he is. He is just WAITING for someone else to be the scapegoat. How do you not see that and why do you keep defending it? Just stop this nonsense already. Silver lining? HOF is flapping his gums about in this place in defense of GG who can do no wrong (it's Davis' fault, it's the players fault, it's the moons fault, it's the guy who didn't turn his blinker on 4hrs norths fault, etc. etc.) pre-game but will be nowhere to be found 48-72hrs after the game ends. He will then come back to tell us we are terrible fans, attacking, etc.
  12. I swear...GG better try throwing the ball 40 times again. I will walk down and slap the headset right off that giant head of his. /s

  15. A few of us heard this too. Evidently he got hurt on that one series where Brunson came in...but he was stinkin up the joint before that so I don't think 'hurt' is the reason why he blew big chunks on saturday...but I'm hoping home game #2 is better for him.
  16. I think all of our openers, at least, have been nice days. I don't remember any that were wet or unseasonably cold. In fact, I wish all season long it was the weather we had this past weekend. What a beautiful evening to be out.
  17. Hahah we really do have a great group. I think a vast majority of the FB fans on this forum are in that section of the stadium as a lot of us were season tickets holders when the stadium was getting built and had the ability to pick our seats and most people picked the 50yd line up top (IMO it's way better up there view wise than down below). I think some fans just try to maintain their anonymity and don't pipe up hah (no shame in it). Love goin to games even if we suck. We have a pretty fun group in BB as well (sec. 200 in BB, first 5-10 rows) not sure how many of those folks are on here.
  18. Student trying to get in by the parking lot entrance were told to go around to the upper entrance. Pretty stupid IMO. Had 3 girls turned away right in front of me. This school continues to piss would be spectators off with stupid policies like that.
  19. Yeah that lady was PISSED. I was not happy but I wasn't throwing swears around lol.
  20. [TL;DR below] Attacking you? I'm calling it how I see it. If you see it as an attack, perhaps you should log off and seek a safe space or dog to pet. I just got a new kitten...would you like to come over and play with him a bit? "They have no other answers but to scream and attack" Are you blind, deaf or both? You clearly haven't read the suggestions on here (blind) or heard 205 screaming answers all game (deaf). I'm not saying that the sideline hears us from up in 205 but the proof is in the pudding...the things suggested by us UA diehards when actually done almost always result in positive things happening. So tell me, who doesn't know what they are talking about and who has no answers? Certainly isn't the posters on this board or the folks sitting in 205 (and likely other sections) and seems to be the coaching staff from where I sit. But Gattuso has the balls to tell me in an email to shove my opinion up my rear end and that he'll coach how he wants to coach (when his UA record is 22-26 at UA, 11-22 vs CAA...EDIT: See Click's stats above for further proof in his ineptitude)? I guess if you want to be out a job in a few years, keep doing you Greg. My posts and posts of others over the last few weeks have had several suggestions and answers to what aisles the team (including the post you just responded too). Your posts are all 'rainbows and unicorns', 'positivity', etc. You have yet to break down any plays or schemes and provide an explanation for why certain things were run in x y or z situation. You have yet to provide an answer on why we threw the ball so much last game. You have yet to make any suggestions on what plays would be better in certain situations. All you do is argue about scholarship numbers, post recruit info and tell everyone they don't know anything (without actually showing you know anything yourself). So because GG talked to the coach at half-time or visited with the defensive line during practice we should just pretend like he is doing EVERYTHING possible to fix this? That is **** he should be doing every day of every year...not only when the going gets tough or when the team is losing at half-time or what not. Does he have control of his program or not? Stop making such stupid and ridiculous excuses for him. ----------------- TL;DR: UA Diehards at games or on the forum = legitimate suggestions that when actually executed in game almost always yield positive results HOF2013 = hot air, rainbows and unicorns, positivity for the sake of positivity, etc. I have zero reservations about my posts and couldn't care less if they offend you or not.
  21. Mencer did play some...not sure how many downs but he was mentioned at least 2-3 times over the PA.
  22. Big mouths? Screw you dude. Your buddy Gattuso is a freakin idiot. Did you see the play calling last night? I absolutely could have called a better game. Where were the slants? The play action? The counters? The delays? The curls? He had three plays...the bomb, the dive and the occasional pass to the flat. Get the hell outa here with your "I know more than anyone nonsense". You are a nobody. And I will yell whatever the hell I want whenever the hell I want to yell it. Including "Fire HOFs BFF Gattuso!" (you'll hear it at some point this coming Saturday so stay tuned). Weren't you leaving? We're waiting...
