  1. On a United shuttle to Newark...WiFi?...I'm hoping it has two working engines and I don't get dragged down the aisle kicking and screaming. I don't have a dog so that works in my favor. I will be wearing my "lucky" Boscov's UA golden yellow shirt. I first wore it the day of the Maryland game so that anyone at Recovery Sports Grill knew who I was backing. I do not believe I wore it for UMBC or Yale...but it's been with me for all other games since. So we'll see if the mojo is still there. Wait, if the flight attendants see the Great Dane on the front they may try to stuff me in an overhead bin.....hmmmm......
  2. Wonder if Mac want to go to Bryant to play with little sister?
  3. As it turns out, I have long standing plans for a trip and will be flying out of Albany when the game starts :-( But, if all is on time I may be able to catch some of the second half. Oh well....GO DANES!!
  4. Lacrosse is like ice hockey. Primarily an eastern/midwestern sport. Hockey is even more so a "little" school sport. When Union can take down Minnesota or Minnesota-Duluth can beat Notre Dame, etc it shows what can be done. LAX has a long history in the northeast and mid atlantic and there were more established big schools, plus the Ivies. They still suck up the majority of the UA All Americans and top recruits. But LAX is exploding at the HS and club level. Utah is adding D1 LAX and there's apparently a lot of HS talent in Utah. It'll be interesting to see how the traditional powers and near powers hang on to the bulk of the talent as both the sport as a whole and the D1 programs expand.
  5. Well that’s too bad. She was a real scrapper. But I’m one one who thinks it’s best to play with those who want to be here so good luck in your future endeavors. I have a theory why Emma is leaving, but not Mac, so next woman up....excellent opportunity for CeCe....and go coach Mullen!! Maybe open scholly for late transfer? As we we all know, coaching changes bring with them player changes. So let it sort out
  6. Baptiste was using the butt end of his stick like an in ice pick. I’ve never seen that before. That play by Patterson where he deflected the flip back to the goalie, scooped the ball and scored, all while falling to the ground, should be on SC top ten and stay there. Amazing. I’m so happy we get to see him for two more years. And T Mccomber looks to be Tehoka in a smaller package. Can’t wait to see him too.
  7. I think the first push was ok, but then there was another shove (and who knows what was said?) TN didn’t argue much and I got the impression that it was deserved. Earlier in the year, was he using that extended arm to protect the crosse? Or is that a newer development? In any case it seems to working. He also is way ahead in penalty minutes this year. Let’s see if that declines.
  8. How many times is it ok to watch the beginning and end of a game before seeking professional help? Just curious.
  9. Groundbreaking

    On the other hand, UA practices in cold, rain and crap weather, so when they play in cold, rainy or crappy weather it’s no big deal. Not to say an indoor facility would not be nice.
  10. Groundbreaking

  11. Fields made a couple of amazing plays with his stick that did not involve scoring. What a warrior! TD went toe to toe with the best and fought him to a draw in the biggest game of TD’s life. That’s a win in my book. The look on Tierney’s face at the end was priceless. Frozen sour puss.
  12. Carcaterra was on with Wyland this morning. He thinks there’s much more pressure on Baptiste to dominate than there is on TD. Basically he thinks UA can win without TD dominating, but not the other way around. So we shall see.
  13. Hi. Sorry to hear about the storm. Obviously, check with your agent or claims person. But, to the best of my knowledge, unless the tree damages something covered under the policy, you are on your own in terms of removal. The town might help and some churches have work crews that will assist. Good luck!
  14. https://dailygazette.com/article/2018/05/15/as-one-mullen-takes-ualbany-coaching-job-another-mullen-s-coaching-career-pauses I did not know that her wife was a highly successful D3 coach at NYU....a twofer!
  15. I want to dislike him, but I can’t. He seems like a real quality kid. There’s a good interview Carc did with him in the SUV back in March. TD is going to need all of his wrestling skills. Of course the wings will be crucial, especially if they effectively neutralize each other.
  16. Siena under investigation..

    After a Google cruise, it appears that Ed retired from coaching in 2010 after a long stint as head coach at WPI. Since then he appears to be performing as as a solo singer-songwriter. Sort of a folksy Austin, Texas style. So there you go....living the dream.
  17. Looking at the box scores of the three Denver losses: The second two losses, ND and G’town were very even games, except in the score. The Duke loss the Blue Devils had a decided advantage in turnovers, but otherwise did not dominate. Baptiste handily won the faceoffs in all three contests. My guess is that if we can play aggressive D and get some turnovers and JD is solid, TD can get enough faceoffs to fuel the high powered offense. It won’t be easy, but they are beatable. I’d love to go, but I’m obligated to an event in the evening, so it’ll have to be TV.
  18. Looks like an up and comer. Let’s see what she can do. Welcome!
  19. Mine was fine. Glad Big Red won. They got hosed by the committee.
  20. Siena under investigation..

    Just an anecdotal observation: Today I passed by the team wear section in the Clifton Park Boscovs .... one Albany T-shirt left....two FULL racks of some hideous green crap right next to it. Just saying....
  21. I can’t speak for the young man but TD has to be pumped. The opportunity to measure yourself against the best is a dream for most players I should think. The kid from Richmond was giving him fits yesterday until he figured him out and then it was all over.

    I’ve got it on Watch ESPN app on the iMac...ESPNU. 7-6 ND. 11:38 left.
