    Xavier Cochran transferring to Wayne State. Was he supposed to be back this year or was he already gone last year?
  2. Guys. Why are we fighting? We’re all in this together. Don’t be like the rest of the world right now. This should be a safe, enjoyable space to root and discuss, not to belittle and tear down. We see enough of that elsewhere. We all want the same thing. UA Victories in all sports. Let’s act like it. Full stop.
  3. This offense with last year's defense is an 8 win team. I actually REALLY like Davis' play calling and Holmes is gonna be CAA Rookie of the Year and a joy to watch for the next four years. There's a lot of really good talent on the WR corp. Perhaps take one of these guys and convert to a CB with that speed? That being said, the defensive play calling is atrocious. Guys playing 5-10 yards off on obvious passing downs and ZERO pass rush except for a few flashes by Mencer and 31. Also seeing VERY little in the way of blitzes. Where's Mazon Walker? Has he broken the rotation? I realize that they are now down to the 4th teamer in the secondary, but that's just rough play there. The bright side is that St. Francis has a pre-season All America WR, so it's not like these guys were stiffs on the SF O.
  4. Recruiting - 2020

    Mildly odd offer here, since he's a 4-star recruit and that seems like Will is reaching a bit here... http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/jayden-stone
  5. I figured it out. You have to sign in to the app and if your cable provider doesn't carry FCS, then it won't show up for you. I have Directv and it shows up once I log in.
  6. Is it fox sports mobile or fox sports go?
  7. Some great info here Mark Singelais‏Verified account @MarkSingelais 36m36 minutes ago More .@UAlbanyFootball is getting a $400,000 guarantee for playing at Pittsburgh on Saturday, per an athletic department spokesman. That's more than the $350,000 they're getting at Syracuse in 2021, but Great Danes are flying charter to Pitt and busing to Syracuse.
  8. 2019 Danes Part II

    To replace Liam Gleason, Albany will hire former Great Dane John Maloney to run their defense, per a source. After graduating in 2016, Maloney was an assistant at Skidmore and St. John Fisher for the past two seasons.
  9. Butts in the Seats 2018 edition

    Mild Wallys also gave away condoms with $5 pizza my Freshman year. I think the pizza was the better birth control.
  10. .@UAlbanyFootball head coach Greg Gattuso said he’ll decide on his starting QB for Pitt by noon Thursday. He said it’ll be either Vince Testaverde or Will Brunson. It won’t be Nyc Burns. “He’s going to be the starter here someday, I think, but it just isn’t going to be today.”https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-football-13174168.php?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Nyc Burns. QB of the future

  12. Recruiting - 2018

    Did we have an open scholarship? http://verbalcommits.com/players/nikola-jerotic
  13. .@UAlbanyFootball coach Greg Gattuso said backup QB Nyc Burns, a juco transfer, will get a lot of work with the first team at practice today and tomorrow. Gattuso said he wants to be sure before naming a starting QB, probably by Thursday.
  14. Looks like all games will be watchable, except for UNH; which if memory serves me, was on Youtube last time UA went there.
  15. 2019 Danes Part II

    You and me both, brother, you and me both.
  16. 2019 Danes Part II

    Because, even if Albany gets trounced on the FO, the shot clock will limit true TOP dominance by any one team, unless the D or Goaltending is considerably worse. Think of how often the :30 went up during any given game last year, not just UA. The net was missed maybe 60% of the time? That's gonna cause a lot more changes of possession and a lot less teams holding on to the ball looking for that one opportunity.
  17. 2019 Danes Part II

    Exactly that. Face-offs are less significant, especially towards the end of a game with the ability to make up for his loss with stout and challenging D.
  18. 2019 Danes Part II

    This certainly mitigates the loss of TD as FOGO significance just lessened.
  19. 2018/2019 Schedule

    Not a single P5 team on our schedule this year. Nothing like a Louisville, Duke, etc. Big bummer.
  20. 2018/2019 Schedule

    More Breaking: According to a source, the UAlbany-Siena Albany Cup game will take at least a one year hiatus. The Great Danes' non-conference schedule is complete and the Saints are not on it. Discussion on where game is played has been a hurdle in the past. @WNYT
  21. Was Diggs granted another year? Would love to see what he could do with more consistent QB play
  22. 2019 Danes

    Bad news I’m assuming?
