  1. fwiw: SBU had a reported 9,652 at LaValle Stadium for their opener against Bryant. They've been much better than us in recent years, but they shouldn't be drawing more than double.
  2. US News Rankings

    All true. A real merger with Albany Med or Albany Law sure would help...
  3. US News Rankings

    the methodology breaks down as: Outcomes (35%): graduation rates, social mobility, Faculty Resources (20%) Expert/Peer Opinion (20%) Financial Resources (10%) Student Excellence (10%) Alumni Giving (5%)
  4. US News Rankings

    I know this isn't sports related, but I got an early look at the US News 2020 rankings and was disappointed to see us now firmly miles and miles behind the other 3 SUNY university centers. The rankings are: • Binghamton: 79 • Buffalo… 79 • Stony Brook: 91 • Albany: 147 As much as I'd love us to concentrate more on lifting our sports program, I also wish the administration would look to bridge this other gap, which is more important to most applying for jobs. When i went to school, Albany was just behind Binghamton but well ahead of Buffalo and SB.
  5. Prepare for greatness

    This literally could not be lamer. the kicker: Food and giveaways... while they last! (aka: a dozen donuts and 17 Albany pencils)
  6. Thanks--this is a really helpful insight. So you found the culture we have distinct enough to persuade one away from other top programs? What makes it unique? And is that mostly coming from Coach Marr, or is there something else the university is doing that others aren't?
  7. Our grads seem extremely pleased with their experience at Albany and the team dynamic, coaching staff, etc, but how do you think we'll continue to recruit top talent as major schools decide to develop their programs? We're already at a deficit in that a UA degree is not as impressive as a Hopkins or UVA or even Bucknell degree, and it seems like more and more high caliber schools are now aiming to build competitive lacrosse teams. So, even if we're becoming (or have become) the Gonzaga of lacrosse, how can we stay there and continue to sell ourselves to top recruits?
  8. Yeah, until we have the prospect of seeing a ranking like this in any other sport, I think we lead with our strength for now. Hopefully it'll generate belief in other areas.
  9. Yeah, I did hear them make the 70% prediction for Baptiste. Way off.
  10. What were they saying? Did it change once the Danes won? Damn, it would (will) be nice to beat Yale.
  11. UMBC

    Didn't know UMBC's mascot is a retriever. That is one friendly mascot.
  12. I would agree with this. Outside of the powerhouse programs, the majority of D1 schools have never held the number 1 ranking in any sport throughout their history. This is a big deal and I hope the program gets some well deserved national coverage. I saw these so far: https://www.foxsports.com/other/story/a-first-for-suny-2-no-1-teams-in-division-i-lacrosse-022618 http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/lacrosse-blog/bs-sp-albany-mens-lacrosse-crowned-as-new-no-1-story.html

    Yeah- makes sense. i'll still keep fingers crossed they give this one to us, since it'll be close. It'd mean more than it ever would to Maryland.
  14. Drexel

    It would be nice to see, but I don’t know how you take a 4-0 defending champion Maryland team that beat UA twice last year and not make them #1. We're No. 2 in the LAX power ranking and Md is 10. http://www.laxpower.com/update18/binmen/rpi01.php

    If we are(!) come Monday, does this make us the first SUNY to ever hold the #1 national rank in a sport? Interestingly, the SBU women's lacrosse team will also take over the #1 rank if they beat Denver tomorrow.
