  1. Recruiting - 2019

    On Wylands show today he had some interview material with JG3 and reported on a recent two day period. JG3 had a visit from Villanova’s top assistant, a visit from Beilein from UMich and then a two hour+ home visit from Coach K. Sounds like he’s having fun with the process but is close to a decision.
  2. Siena under investigation..

    The latest on this was on Wylands show this morning. He said his source pointed to a Siena Asst coach as a source of the Patsos leaks. This Asst is apparently familiar with Beilein and as a result Beilein is off the list. If all true, the dumpster continues to burn.
  3. Groundbreaking

  4. I went to one game when there was nobody at all watching the Dutch lot....can't remember which one. Just parked and walked over.

  6. Yes, he is. Was offered in January by Iowa State.

    Home and home or walk. I was looking over at the LCC board and some one was actually talking about Pitino. Seriously? And listed Becker at UVM as a top possibility. Why would Becker even consider going to an inferior program? He’s making $300k base plus incentives which is not out of line with what JP was making. They need to realize that Deane put the program on the map, then Orr, Hewitt and McCaffrey rode the wave to bigger and better things. Then two clunker hires in a row and it’s back to square 1. LCC is gonna be a tough sell to recruits until the stink goes away. For the record, I do not hate the school in Loudonville and as a local resident have always rooted for the local teams...unless they were playing UA. They need a talented up and comer that sees opportunity in the face of recent adversity and pictures a stepping stone if they can get the program back to winning ways. Two strong programs in our area are better than one.

    He seems to be a very athletic kid with multiple tools and a slippery drive. Im looking forward to seeing him work.

  11. Recruiting - 2018

    As I’ve mentioned before, UA now measures its success by AE championships and NCAA trips. Winning seasons, 20 win seasons, success in conference games is all great and something to strive for every year. But if there’s no trophy at the end of the year there’s a big empty feeling. We’ve had a good group of kids the last few years, but they could not exceed opponents at the end of the season. Sometimes the other team was better and sometimes there was an almost inexplicable letdown of effort and execution at the worst possible moment. In many respects I am happy there is going to be major changes in the lineup because whatever the team had the last few years it was not enough to get over the hump. Why not shake it up and roll the dice that a new chemistry will emerge with eager young players looking for NCAA success? It’ll be like waking up on Christmas morning with a bunch of new toys. Let’s see what WB can put together with what looks to be a very athletic group.
  12. Finally. A road trip football game the wife will attend! 🤣
  13. Yes. Who else do we know who was a good hockey player in HS? If only he can be as good.

    They look like a couple of great kids. Welcome! Ok, if you haven’t already, check out the sports teams at Clarendon. There’s some interesting choices! Definitely a long way from upstate NY. 😁🐂🐴🥩
  15. I tried to check out UA recruit Swingruber from Ballston Spa. I walked all over the BSpa campus and could only find what looked like a JV lax practice and a girls game. After a nice walk I gave up and went home. Turns out they moved the game to the Columbia turf field over in East Greenbush. Oh well. I tried. Luckily I’m only a mile away from the BSpa campus. It’s still a little soggy out there.
