  1. Probably a more eloquent way of saying the same thing I did. Thank you.
  2. Blue lives do matter. White lives do matter All lives do matter Please remember, just because we raise awareness for breast cancer in October, it doesn't mean we are saying that prostate cancer isn't also an issue. Just because someone says save the whales it doesn't mean Bing all the other fish in the sea. We should all support BLM. The issues of race or so multifaceted that you can't argue about black on black crime or someone will remind you that crime is local and the racist policies of the 40s-70s literally forced people to move to certain neighborhoods. Literally stole property value and equity. Crime is based on life situation and locality - most crimes occur within 2 miles of someones home. Why aren't people talking about white on white crime? (hint: that's the majority of crime in the US) BLM is an important movement that needs to be heard by people across the country. Have bad things been done in its name? Yup! Are their bad cops that ruin the reputation of the good cops? Yup! Are their good cops? Yup! Should we shut up and try to listen to a people that have been marginalized for centuries? Yup! Carry on. I'll try to keep politics out of future political comments.
  3. Agreed blorp... Do I want the players on the court holding pro Biden or Pro Trump signs? Nope. That would be upsetting. Will it bother me if they take a knee during the Anthem, not a bit. Kneeling is a sign of respect, but showing that something is wrong. Like when a kid gets hurt in a little league game we have all the other kids take a knee. This is by far the most patriotic way to display their concern with the direction of the country, and to pay respect to the lives lost in the name of equality.
  4. OMFG seriously? A change.org petition about the shape of the ears in a team logo? Cancel culture on full display. I get it, it's cruel to crop their ears, but lets take a look at the history of why it was done: Cropping the ears was done with hunting dogs to protect them from being mutilated while hunting wild Seawolves (I mean wild boar). The point is to make the dog look angry and mean. All the Great Danes I know have been lovable. The floppy ears make them look lovable. Maybe put some small print on the bottom of the logo "The University at Albany does not condone the cropping of ears. No Great Danes were harmed in the artist rendering of this logo." I can't take this world anymore. Also, the existing Scooby/Damien has cropped ears. Was there a petition for him?
  5. Thats why I said asserting my age. As a student from 95-99 that that is the stuff that I started with. I know many of you are much older
  6. That announcement was you can't have Under Armour with UA My assumption is that all the new Under Armor apparel will be launched. A new Dane logo? The question will be to buy a bunch of new crap or assert my age by only wearing the old Damien stuff - or even my old 90's stuff.
  7. I think it is too early to discuss this or any of the options until they actually announce whats going to happen. That said, this will hurt mid-majors come tournament time, as there will be no way to accurately compare teams from different conferences.
  8. As a lawyer, and constitutional history buff, but typing in a forum with simplistic readers, we can believe whatever we like.
  9. Just for clarity, that is how this country was designed. It is not "becoming" that way. We have 50 independent states, joined together to regulate commerce between the states, and to plan for the common defense. This is why each state has a governor and legislature. It's why the electoral college exists.
  10. Until UA makes the round of 32 this year, and the sweet 16 next year. He will want to be a part of that! (Then I woke up)
  11. Early 20-21 season projections are updated on the Bart Torvik site. His projections aren't that high on UA. That said, he still has Malachai on the team and hasn't added NJIT to the league yet. https://www.barttorvik.com/?conlimit=AE&state=All&year=2021&sort=
  12. So 3 guys that are traditional "big" sizes at 6'8" or higher. It doesn't really matter much in the AE, but the non conference and any potential post season could be tough against bigger teams. If healthy, all 3 should get significant time. I am hoping Hank can add a little offensively this season. He has the body. Lulka showed a lot before his injuries, and Doles showed promise in the CAA. I'm already excited for this season, but need to keep expectations low. On paper they have the talent to be the top team in a "Lambless" AE, but with most of the team retooled again it's probably anyone's guess.
  13. My e-mail has been wonky, and communication from the school isn't always great. Can we use this thread to discuss if there will be a 2020 season, and deadlines for season tickets etc.? I haven't renewed mine yet - mostly because I do not know if there will be a season. I will buy them if the season is going to happen. I just dont want to miss a deadline and lose my seats.
  14. Apparently not true.... https://twitter.com/ASUNCommish/status/1271120470742630403?s=20
  15. Definitely fills the teams biggest need with size. Looks like he only played 5 games last year. I am guessing he was injured? Started 10 games as a freshman, and came off the bench as a sophomore. Only averaged about 11 minutes per game throughout his career. "Per 40 minutes" and "per 100 Poss" stats actually look pretty good. Probably won't be a star as the CAA isn't that much of an upgraded league, but I have to imagine he would be a huge help to the team if he is healthy considering the current roster construction. UA is probably pretty attractive to him considering there is nothing to stop him from getting lots of playing time except himself.
  16. "Hey Ref Fix your facemask, your missing a great game" "Hey Ref: Go back to quarantine!" That wasn't a foul, he was perfectly social distanced! I am sure you all can come up with some much better ones than me!
  17. Anyone have any updates on the last ship? A couple interesting offers out there.... DeMarcus Morris, 6'8" PF and Christian Hinckson, 6'7" SF are the two most likely targets on verbal commits, but it seems that VC doesn't seem to have as up to date info this season. Grad transfer Taurean Thompson might be my top target based on who is publicly immediately eligible in the transfer portal, but some other interesting names are: Kodye Pugh, Gorjok Gak, and Jeriah Horne. All of those guys would probably go higher, but any of them could make an impact in the AE.
  18. Benjamin Griscti - 6'11" - Stretch 4 that shoots 3's? Amarri Tice - 6'5" wing from Newburgh. Both are their first offers.
  19. If she is transferring down, does it mean she didn't see playing time?
  20. I haven't renewed my season tickets yet out of fear it would be cancelled and I wouldn't see a refund. That said, if games were happening and fans could go, I would renew and go. I'm not as afraid of the virus as others, and they wouldn't open for fans if it wasn't at least partially safe. I would distance, and would wear a mask if it was recommend, (it gets cold in the stadium anyway) but that is to keep others safe more than me. As far as keeping politics off the board, I agree wholeheartedly, but there are times when politics intermingle with sports and the conversation is very relevant. Just have to keep it to how the politics affects the teams and the university, and not this politician sucks and that one correct.
  21. Maybe Will Brown's experience with JUCO and transfers over the last 10 years or so will give UA a headstart at adapting to the new landscape. Who knows. The 4-year Mid-Major star like Anthony Lamb is going to be rarer and rarer as time goes on.
  22. I was bored and drinking last night reading up on some of the commits this year. CJ Kelly seems really interesting to me. Great background in High School and a connection to Brown. He didn't overly impress at Norfolk and it's not like the MEAC is a power conference, but he seems to have some major upside potential. Not a fan of the fact that one of the only non-conference games that he didn't score in was against LCC in his year at Norfolk, but I digress. Is this the new Brown MO? Look for guys with high upside with injury issues and hope they heal and return to their previous form? I am a gambler by nature, but this has been very risky the last few seasons. Anyway, reading up on some of the new blood, it's hard to not be excited for the possibilities in a Lambless AE and a gutted SBU. Find us a "big" big and this team may be a surprise success.
  23. Interesting pickup. After playing football, I am sure he can contribute at the 4, and is pretty athletic from what I see, but this UA team is going to be SMALL. Desperately need a "big" big with the last spot.
