  1. Great video checking in on our Aussies during quarantine. I'd kind of like to trade places with Cam right about now ...
  2. Could be a great target. His brothers played football at UA. Didn't get much play at Wake Forest, but could be a great get in the AE.
  3. We had 3 straight NCAA appearances, then we were the favorite but got upset by Hartford, then made it to the chip with a talented young team. Underachied the following season, but was still really good. Should have beat Louisville. During this time, the UA fanbase got used to having sky high expectations. That 2017 team would have run this current team out of the gym. The real question is: Does Brown figure it out and make this team a contender next season, or are we in a new reality of not being one of the top teams in the conference and needing to accept it.
  4. Watched the 2017 championship game that UA lost to UVM tonight. Such a different team than what we had this year, but what was a sophomore led team. So much crisper play.
  5. According to the NYS Contract Report, the naming rights were awarded to SEFCU again on 6/6/19 http://www.nyscr.ny.gov/adsArchive.cfm?numID=2053857 The Athletic Media Rights RFP does not appear to have ever been awarded: http://www.nyscr.ny.gov/adsArchive.cfm?numID=2037546 And the RFP for the design services for the arena renovations seems to have disappeared. I am sure I will find it, just cant right now
  6. The team could not stay healthy at all this season. There is no reason to run anyone off. That's not a reputation the school wants or needs. I'm still a believer in the core of this team. Anyone have any news if Doherty will return or what his situation is? Is his name in the transfer portal? If he doesn't return, 4 open spots is more than enough to get a few bigs and another ball handler.
  7. You mention Shafer as leaving a few times in this thread, but I haven't seen it anywhere else. Is this confirmed?
  8. 5 open ships before any additional departures, 1 commit so far. (Amica). That's 4 new players already needed. (3 if Doherty ends up returning) Possible additional departures include: Shafer (outside of this board, I've heard nothing of him leaving), Lulka (I've read he might graduate early). No reason to run anyone off. While I'm disappointed with this season, I still really like the core of this team. Grabbing another 4 year kid, a grad transfer, and 2 athletic JUCO kids to fill the 4 remaining spots could be more than enough to fix this teams woes if they can stay healthy.
  9. Should seriously be looking to recruit over every player every year. Thats what top teams do. You should never ever be satisfied with what you have. You get the best, longest, most athletic players you can land regardless of position. Playing time sorts itself out. Brown needs to make sure everyone on the team knows that their spots aren't safe, and they need to work hard during the offseason - not only on strength and conditioning, but on flexibility, health, and stretching. Too many people forget those 3 things and then end up with back, leg, and shoulder problems. He is recruiting the
  10. Is Shafer leaving? That would be sad, as I thought he had a lot of promise. Didn't get much PT this year, but was also injured all year. He should know the system already so he would have a leg up on any other new guys.
  11. Thanks for the concern. MRI tomorrow and hopefully a cortisone shot instead of surgery. I can't do surgery now with how busy I am now
  12. I'm sure he will be fine, but if you looked at his numbers over the last few games there is clearly something wrong. This thread is about blaming the coaches or the players for the underperforming season. I posted to float the idea that the trainers did something wrong. If I was healthy, I could do better than 1-18 from 3 or whatever Healy sis the last few games.
  13. I know Healey has been hurt for a few weeks. I remember there was debate if he should sit for a few games to get healthy. I think it started before the second Hartford game. He played in hopes of keeping a higher seed. I can't help but think that it was a waste ending with a 7 anyway. Would we have been better off giving him a few weeks off and bringing him back for the playoffs? Is the decision on the training staff? Who do we blame for all the injuries this year? Were they freak, or can the training staff be to blame? I am currently going through some back issues and a pinched ner
  14. Playoff race as explained by the league: https://americaeast.com/sports/2020/3/3/MBB_0303200324.aspx
  15. Fairly certain that Josh's basket will be the top play on tomorrow's Sportscenter. Need to make sure that they finish that story with UA winning the game.
  16. Looks like tonight's game is going into the official record of the US Senate. Something tells me that it isn't going to be easy to beat an inspired UVM team, but it would be excellent to have that as a footnote...
  17. I wish the ESPN app allowed slowmo instant replay, but I don't see any contact at all. Looked like Rizzuto tripped when reaching and fell, and foreman stuttered a little when he couldn't reach the pass which I think caused the foul call. I've watched it a bunch of times and I don't see it. Doubt it would have made any difference in the final result, but getting the ball back down 3 with 11.8 left would have at least given them a slight chance to tie it at the buzzer.
  18. I just watched the ending again, and i still do not see contact by Rizzuto on the full court pass. If anything he brushed him as he tripped, but certainly not enough to call a foul. Am I crazy? Should have been a turnover with it being UA ball with just under 12 seconds remaining and down by 3. The only thing I can think may have happened was the Brown told the ref we were going to try and steal the inbound pass and if we couldn't get it they would foul immediately. If the ref had that instruction, they may have called the foul on any contact. Rizzuto clearly did not impede the SBU p
  19. We can play with and beat last night's SBU team, but the thing that surprised me the most was how much better shape they were in physically than we were. Not only more athletic with ups, but just appeared to spend more time in the weight room. I can't get over how poorly Healy has shot the ball over the last 2 weeks. Seems flat and off. I wouldn't be surprised if the team plays well and makes it to the AE championship game, or even wins that game and plays in the PIG. That said, I also wouldn't be surprised if we get blown out in the first round of the playoffs by 20+. What team show
  20. Anyone know where Adam Lulka is tonight? He isn't on the bench.
  21. I'm pretty sure he got a waiver to have an additional scholarship just like we did last year with Starks career ending injury (with us bringing in Jerotic at the last minute - who redshirted then left)
  22. Last game of the regular season. Team is on a slide going into game 30 at home vs. SBU. A loss there gives this game 0 value. A win might make this important for a home game in the playoffs (unlikely) . Starting the thread for this game early to share this article... http://www.therepublic.com/2020/02/26/a_shining_moment_speidel_to_take_court_for_senior_night_at_vermont/ Feel good story: UVM will start star recruit Josh Spiedel who was hurt in a car accident before attending UVM. He was never able to play again, but UVM honored the scholarship. Will Brown and John Becker
  23. I think this slide coincided with Doherty leaving the program. Did something happen we don't know about that shook up the team? I'm not making any accusations, just an observation.
  24. Wow. Glad I didn't watch this game. Checked the score after my teams last practice and almost lost my dinner. Don't want to read through the thread. They showed signs of starting to put it all together as conference play started then just fell apart. No words to describe it.
