  1. I like the points made on the UA sports site about the upcoming game: "This is the first time a SUNY school has earned a trip to a men’s Division I Final Four. The UAlbany field hockey team [who else?} was the first SUNY team to do it in 2014. UAlbany is also the first America East team to reach the semifinal round since Towson in 2001." [Bold enhancements and brackets are my additions.]
  2. Thanks for that information. In any case, the battle was close either way.
  3. I had only live stats during the game. How did TD do against Baptiste?
  4. Hurray! The curse is broken. Hopefully, the last weekend will have good weather, and the team will be healthy.
  5. I was just going to make a bland reply to the order of having a lock on the Commissioner's Cup again, but your suggestion is far superior. College classes have ended, but how many Dane teams are still active?

  7. Siena under investigation..

    A few years ago when I frequented the LCC board in anticipation with the UA game, I remember reading Glen's posts. I don't know what that guy is on, but it's not healthy. And speaking of "being on something," after the last few years of miserable seasons, I wonder how much "weeding out" the LCC fanbase will experience this year in terms of season ticket sales.
  8. The loss yesterday at Yale was certainly disheartening, without the injury to Connor even more so. I rank this loss for 2017-18 up there with the men's basketball loss to Stony Brook with the greatest disappointments of this year's athletic schedule. I look back about ten - twelve years to the time when UA won its first Commissioner's Cup. How thrilled I was, and then I feel spoiled now. Times have changed.
  9. 2017-18 Season

    I hope next season will be better, just like everyone else on this board. I'm wondering why Nichols' s year wasn't so good. Maybe he had other priorities this year. He's an excellent student. Did putting more effort into his studies lesson his output on the court? He lost his sister last year. Did this loss change his perspective on life? Who knows? Maybe he just needs more consistent support from others on the court. I'm also thinking the Aussies learned some valuable lessons in their redshirt year. I've always admired the effort that most of them put out in past years, and I'm hoping next year will be no exception. They had to see the downturn in this year's season and wonder how they can contribute to a turnaround. They had to be so impressed how a lowly AE team in the form of an UMBC became the national darlings. I expect big things from them in 2018-19.
  10. 2017-18 Season

    With the recent success of UMBC at UVM and against UVa, I wonder how many teammates are thinking of saying, "This could have been us."
  11. Thanks, UAalum, I just confirmed the number of UA fouls on the athletic site. Your number makes a lot more sense. And I just got new glasses.
  12. UVM Athletics suffered two bad losses two weekends in a row.
  13. 2018 Bracket Challange

    And to think we had a long thread about the "terrible" AE!
  14. 2018 Bracket Challange

    If I remember correctly, UA had a 12-point lead against UConn with 11+ minutes to go. UConn didn't take a final lead until 5-6 minutes to go.
  15. In the women's game tonight I noticed that Penn committed twice as many fouls as UA (18-9), but Penn shot more than twice as many fouls as UA (31-14) despite UA's slightly better foul shooting percentage (77-79%). Did anyone watch the game who can explain this anomaly to me?
