  1. I continue my daily routine of good thoughts, wishes and even a prayer, in hopes that conditions improve so that when September arrives that there will be a full fall sports schedule 📅. Until then, I will continue the steps that has kept my family safe.
  2. Interesting enough, the MAAC announced their teams are resuming play after September, 12, 2020. I do not see any fall sports, winter sports have just little more time. Interesting, Rick Pitino, the new Iona basketball coach, stated he would go along with a conference only schedule.
  3. Any Huchthausen, AS Commissioner, made a brief appearance on the CBS Sunday News program, this morning. She stated she is unable to state whether or not it the America East Conference will resume sports in the fall. She further stated the situation is fluid.
  4. Unfortunately, godanesgo99, at best you have no clue about modern tribalism in American society. Further, you took my comment out of context, leaving out a much broader statement, that had nothing to do with on how this country was formed. Shame on you. Sadly, you likely never had the opportunity to take classes from Dr. Catherine Newbold or Dr. Harry Price. With that said, I do not need a lesson on Constitutional law from you.
  5. I respect your opinion, I don't agree whether one person can be blamed for one aspect of this pandemic that went horrible wrong. What I do know that instead of acting as one nation, we are acting as 50 independent states, 3000 plus counties and countless other municipal units. With the exception of finding a vaccine, everything was piece meal. The Albany Times Union pointed out how Saratoga Health and Sheriff's office gave approvals against Phase 4 guidelines. The United States of America has become a country of tribal factions. Political, Social, Economic, Health Issues and throw in sports for good measure. I would love to see fall sports. My neighbor is a DIII Offensive Coordinator stated the odds of a team getting through the season without an issue are long. He reminded me not only are you worried about your team; you need to be worried about your opponent. He and I agree that keeping all student-athletes under wraps is a next to impossible task.
  6. Considering the tone the forum has taken, perhaps there is a need for a new topic: 2021 Football - A Look Ahead
  7. Most of us, including myself, who have made a GDAC contribution over the years, will continue to make their contribution. However, there is no time pressures at the moment.
  8. Additional note: Union College is expected to make a decision on or about July 15 for fall sports. RPI was not the first DIII school to forgo competing this fall.
  9. The Tuesday edition Albany Times Union had an article with a quote from Scott Marr stating that he expects Jakob Patterson will return for a "5th" season of lacrosse and to attend grad school. A shout out to Jakob for his academic achievements over the last four years. (I did not attach a link.)
  10. Front page sports section just above the crease. Today's edition, I receive the printed version
  11. Greg Gattuso spoke with the Albany Times Union: "Coach up for challenges". Underlying text: "Gattuso hoping there'll be a season despite uncertainty about coronavirus pandemic". I found the article interesting and worth reading .... no help when it comes to renewing tickets at this point.
  12. What is going on? 2020 GDAC Annual Golf Tournament on October 1, 2020. They can announce this event, which is 90 days out, however the fall sports schedule remains elusive.
  13. Well, I would hope that the UAlbany Ticket Office would update past season ticket holders with their plans soon.
  14. I like to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the dads of UAlbany athletes (current and past), UAlbany coaches and BigPurpleFans. Going to be a warm one in the Capital District of New York! Thank you for sharing your sons and daughters with us!
  15. At least, we have a starting point. Albeit, not accurate when comes to NJIT being part of the conference. I wonder if Bart Torvik will update his projections in the near future.
  16. I would not assume anything... Was thinking some of the benefits ...could see an opening round of 7 vs. 10 and 8 vs. 9 in men's and women's basketball. Just my thought ... AE is not seeking to become a 12 school conference. 10 schools seems just right.
  17. Interesting how these things start as rumors, there is a denial .... On Friday Roger Wyland announces NJIT is going the AE Conference.
  18. I have not read any articles concerning the infection rate among student-athletes. However, this is a concern and would likely require every athlete to provide a honest assessment of their exposure to COVID-19 and testing before practicing.
  19. Let me assure you that no announcement has been made. There was an article in the Albany Times Union, which featured the football conditioning and strength 💪 coach. He expressed a desire to have the student athletes return to campus. I have seen similar comments from other coaches at other schools. The State of New York needs to reach "Phase 4" . I expect an announcement by mid July concerning college and high school sports.
