  1. 2019 Season

    For a lacrosse player you have to offer a graduate major they can relate to. It is getting better now but for years it has been difficult for both graduate and undergraduate majors. As an Albany graduate and guidance counselor, Albany had little to offer. It is much better now but still thin.
  2. We need to stop the Dartmouth 3's. I would like to CB's 1-3-1 zone changed to a 3 - 2 which covers the outside and the corners BUT the foul line is a problem. However, I'm not the coach so what do I know!
  3. New Starting Five?

    Probably a TU miss statement. Don't think CB would undermine current players with a statement like that.
  4. Come on coaches, SHUT that back door even if your not playing Princeton.

    Can't be gassed the way coach shuffles players(which may be a problem). We play 4 bigs Forster, Kantzy, Canada, and Schecter but we don't have anyone who can see and feed the open bigs. I know the coach is in her first year as a head coach BUT you don't let a double digit lead get down to 2 before you call a time out! Saved the time out with 8 seconds to go and down 7. Only Merlin Hathaway could have won that one.

    Guarded each other in both the 1st & 2nd halves. Nice comments by Vitale that they were both exceptional students, roommates and family friends. Surprised at the amount of playing time each got in the tournament. Kudos to them, Coach Brown and the quality of play in the America East.

    Having 3 coaches in 4 years has really impacted the women's program. Three quality players left, recruits didn't come and talented players graduated. We need to give the new coach 2-3 years to rebuild---especially guards and scorers. Current players are giving great effort but it is going to be far from easy. We will still be there to support them!!

    With all our appearances in NCAA MW BB, MW LACROSSE, Volleyball, Golf, Softball, Baseball, Field Hockey and no post season appearances in football how can we be called a "football school"? We have had season tickets for years and support the football program BUT we must support the Stanford model to excel in all sports!!!!!!!!!

    Take a step back and relax. We had Joe and David this year and where did we end up even with some good bigs that didn't get the ball. Just rebuilding a year early. Not sure if D will get them much playing time but I'm sure some Big 5's will have a need. Good luck to them--and thanks for their UA efforts.
  10. Can't be tired. Only played 9 games in Jan. and 7 in Feb. If in shape you need only two minutes rest per half. For the most part CB has given them that. They don't need rest. They need to play defense especially on the perimeter and not be too anxious to go on offense.
  11. New Board Headline

    I LIKE!
  12. 3or 4 moving picks allows them to get to the bonus and double bonus. Almost all committed by 2nd team players. An easily corrected problem.
  13. Women's Basketball 2017-18

    Coach Mac has the UA Women in 1st place all by themselves! As John Wooden said "If you want to see basketball as it should be played go to a ladies game". Amen!!
  14. The amount of playing time is irrelevant. That is 12 time outs of 1 -3 minutes. It is simply the lack of defense by matador guards leading to fouls on the bigs. Start playing perimeter defense and we will be OK!
