  1. I'm not sure. ..however if the Albany Empire, out of a 4 team arena league, can get 10500 at their last home game, I see absolutely no reason if we market ourselves right we cant average 8k to 10k a game. They market the crap out of the Albany Empire. We need to do the same. In my opinion that's what we r highly lacking as a University.
  2. 2018/2019 Schedule

    I understand we are a much bigger university than Siena but their fanbase is about double ours. That being said I find this to be interesting; Twitter followers for mens basketball are as follows: Siena: 3209 Albany: 4793 I understand that a lot of Siena alumni stay local but that's an interesting number to me. I truly believe that after a major renovation, and I believe it's coming, of the Sefcu we will draw much much better. I dont think the Sefcu is a dump, like most Siena fans would say, but a major facelift will go a long way.
  3. Recruiting - 2018

    We may have our answer now. The Thunderbirds have signed Nathan Fromm from Anchorage Alaska. The 6’5 wing transfers in from Western Wyoming JC where he averaged 20 ppg on 45% from 3 point range. #NMJCMBB #FeelTheThunder Appears Fromm is going another year of JC. Too bad I liked this player. Looks as if he could have helped from the outside.
  4. I'm not a lacrosse guy but can someone explain to me that if a guy is right handed why u let them go right ? Even I could get a good shot off.

    I'm not a huge Campbell fan but that does not mean he cant improve. I'm curious to see what you consider solid? He averaged 7 points 4 rebounds last season.

    His twitter has him committing. Seems to be a great signing .
  7. https://m.timesunion.com/sports/article/Apparently-Rodger-Wyland-knew-of-Siena-hire-12886271.php I'm not the biggest Wyland fan...though I do listen to him on a regular basis, but this story to me really comes across like sour grapes. The man was right. He does seem to get the big stories first. This guy seems to be a sore loser. Must be drinking the Siena kool-aid.
  8. https://nypost.com/2018/04/30/meet-the-giants-intriguing-new-qb-and-the-coach-he-tortured/ Interesting article in the NY Post. Any press is good press.
  9. From the daily Gazette : "That door is certainly open, and redshirt junior Vincent Testaverde has made that the case" I thought he was a senior this year? Does anyone know for sure what his class is?
  10. Recruiting - 2018

    Unless it's a hardship I give up trying to figure out the transfer thing. He played in 20+ games last year and is not a senior transfer. Under the transfer rules he would need to sit.
  11. Recruiting - 2018

    He would need to sit a year. I have followed this player a little. He has had at least a couple of surgeries on the lower parts of his body. Seemed to have slowed him down a bit.
  12. I think he is a typical reporter. He has been around the capital region for decades and therefore has many sources. Of course he does it for the ratings. He has radio show on ESPN as well as the top rated local news station. That equals money. A lot of money. The more followers the more money. That being said I truly like him. He pays a lot of attention to local sports and I think he does a very good job. I enjoy listening to his radio show.
  13. I think we have seen this story before (basketball). Start out strong. Have high expectations only to fold badly late. Season not over just yet but it sure looks like it's going that way.
  14. Siena under investigation..

    I truly think there should be a home and home. But I posted this b4 and I think it would be acceptable as well (too me). Siena stance has been, the game is for the community. That's why they won't come to the Sefcu. Well this will solve it: Sign a 4 year deal. Every year the game is at the Times Union Center. In return Albany gets 80 percent of the revenue. Siena will keep 20 percent to pay for operational costs. If it's really about the community Siena would sign this asap. The game stays and Siena losses no money. When they say NO, and we all know they will, they can never again state it's all about the community. They get the home field advantage and nobody is closed out and in return we get all the money . All kidding aside given what they are arguing, it's perfect .
