  1. I think we all desperately need some actual games to talk about! My choice of sports consumption, whether UA or professional, is based on what I find interesting. I did not watch a single NBA, NHL or MLB game so far in 2018....could not care less. Never been to a UA softball game, XCountry meet, track and field meet, baseball game, WLax game, field hockey game, etc. Dont watch “reality” shows on TV. My choice. So I’m not going to suffer through games, women’s or men’s, that don’t interest me.
  2. And I don’t understand the need to be so different. WSOC and WBB are every bit as physical as the men’s games. Women’s ice hockey is physical as well. Let em play!
  3. They would have to pay me to attend women’s lax.
  4. Just out of curiosity...I looked and Coach M's personal info is on her official Bio.
  5. The Times Useless has hitched it's wagon to a lame horse. UA has won its 6th straight Commissioner's Cup and LCC has won....what exactly? I grew up in the Schenectady area and always thought the Daily (Schenectady) Gazette had by far the best local sports coverage of the two main papers. I hope MK never leaves the Gazette because he really has the pulse on the UA sports program.
  6. I have a hard time watching it. The rules are so different than the men's game that its barely recognizable as the same sport. You can't say that about WBB or WSOC for example. So maybe that's why. They certainly are talented and dedicated athletes, but the game to me is dull.
  7. Recruiting - 2018

    I’d rather have too many good players competing for those 200 minutes a game than not enough. Basically any kid good enough to earn a D1 scholarship was a star player in HS. Those that rise to the top get the bulk of the minutes in college. Those that are willing to put ego and preconceptions aside become solid role players and prosper. Those that are unwilling to accept a lesser role or can read the tea leaves and see that they are in over their heads and won’t see much playing time will move on. It’s the way it has to be. I, for one, am really excited to see which ones rise to the top this year and if some players can’t accept that they will have diminished roles, so be it.
  8. Nice articles in the Gazette today regarding Liam Gleason. He said Coach Marr was very supportive, said he was ready and did not try to get him to stay. His quote was “go kill it.” Marr also said what a great day it was for UA that one of their own was going to be a head coach. I didn’t realize that Gleason was the first head coach in St Rose history, but never coached a single practice or game there before coming to UA as an assistant.
  9. When I looked it also had a lot of class years noted as "UNK". SO they don't have determinations of their class year/eligibility year status? Maybe they didn't intend to make this public and someone goofed? It makes no sense to post a draft.
  10. I see Griffin and Thorne on there. Looks like a work in progress.
  11. I seriously do not get the venom aimed at TD. The kid never bitched, moaned or acted anything other than gung ho about UA Lax. He gave it all he had for two years and for whatever reason it’s time for him to make a change. It’s a free country and he’s not an indentured servant. He was a Dane, now he’s the enemy. Let it go folks. It’s one guy! If there’s some mass exodus of top players then maybe we should be worried about the program. I’m done talking about it and am not worried about it. Students transfer all the time for a variety of reasons and we never hear about it because they are not in the spotlight. We don’t make them give an exit interview where they state the reason they are leaving.
  12. I think we are in good hands. TD, thanks for two great years. Now be gone....
  13. Recruiting - 2019

    Per Gazette: August Mahoney verbally committed to Yale.
  14. I renewed my tickets yesterday and it seemed to know that I was paid up in terms of the seat obligation, so that’s a good thing. Overall the new payment website is confusing to me, but at the end it appeared to work ok. Perhaps the email I got was a generic one off of a list and the direct reference to me and the seat numbers was absent any account info.
  15. I made my seat commitment donation three months ago and yesterday get an email asking if I’m still going to want the seats. And if I want the free parking, I need to make a $100 donation...wtf? I’ll let you know if the left hand discovers what the right is doing.
