  1. Benson's Contract

    Crud. I should have read more clearly but in my defense, my eyes haven't completely adjusted to the light since I have emerged from my hole.
  2. Benson's Contract

    Double post! Yeah!
  3. Benson's Contract

    I'll temporarily come out of my hibernation to offer one avenue: His telephone number is 518-442-BLOB. No joke!
  4. I was going to post something to this effect about the success of other NY football programs but a severe case of UA football apathy won out...again. UBuff hires Lance Leipold in 2015 after amazing D3 success. 2015: 5-7, 2016: 2-10, 2017: 6-6. 2018 (4th season): 9-1. Syracuse hires Dino Babers in 2016 after a short stint both in the FCS and the MAC; he improves each time from Year 1 to Year 2. 2016: 4-8, 2017: 4-8 2018 (3rd season): 8-2 with a high national ranking. Maybe the Clackster and Ilko are right, and GG just needs more time to get his system implemented! (TIC) And don't even get me going on SBU sitting at 7-3 with a UA player at the helm!?!?!?!!?
  5. Louisville has fired football coach Bobby Petrino two days after the Cardinals lost their seventh game in a row to fall to 2-8. Athletic director Vince Tyra announced the move Sunday, saying he "did not have the confidence" that Petrino could turn things around next season and that the change "needs to start happening now." "We want to thank Bobby for guiding our football program to some of the better seasons we have had historically at UofL during his two separate tenures here," Tyra said in a statement. "However, at this time we feel the program needs different leadership and we owe it to our student-athletes and fans to get this turned around." I know it is "apples and oranges", but 2 wins and seven losses in a row gets the coach fired. When SBU filets UA next week it will eerily be the same situation. Noticeable differences: Louisville has money, GG to his credit never had a scandal, Petrino actually had some success, and Louisville has an AD that isn't sitting in the shadows not addressing a known issue, etc...
  6. You know, you never want that pressure of actually being expected to win a freaking game!!!!
  7. So the worst thing is to go into a game favored? Tell that to Alabama. I would prefer being favored by 20 in every game. What a schmuck.
  8. GDAC donations

    Donate a nickel and earmark it for the football program. That way you get to score a passive aggressive dig to GG and the board member gets closer to ponying up a cool million. Win, win.
  9. App. State: From FCS to ranked FBS in the last four years.
  10. Being able to throw the ball is not necessary. Requirements include being willing to kick and to play defense.
  11. I changed mine to read "Greatness Lived Here" weeks ago.
  12. Ohhhh....real talk? This team is a $ienashow and Benson is in a completely unenviable position that he alone put us in. Maybe a little less time picking the low hanging fruit of stadium seats and the women's tennis team and a little more time on personnel management???
  13. Orange and black uniform scheme....pushing UA around...am I missing something?
  14. I seriously don't understand all of the negativity tonight. Five years ago every one of us would have been tickled purple to host (and beat) Oregon State in a one-possession game! Oregon State! Think about that man. That's a team from the Pac-12; not a winless team from one of the worst conferences in D1 football.
