  1. In the end, I live with the font and headshots, the state map logo is interesting... agree that I hope that they did not pay money for outside suggestions. based on Benson's marketing background he is trying to leave his mark.
  2. Let us hope, we will be allowed in the stands. As of now, no fans in stands per Andrew.
  3. Reviewed the document... Wow.
  4. Please tell me that this is not part of the new package....maybe we did not spend money on market research..
  5. I imagine that our beloved AD spent serious money on market research...
  6. We have from "looking for a fight" to "watchful" to "mean-angry".... I will say looks are in the eyes of the beholder...
  7. The dog looks like it could use some anger management training.... ☺☺☺
  8. Just saw the new logo interesting .... Furthermore a local sports personality is reporting that Damian was spotted leaving the Albany area via Amtrak with his tail between his legs ... His only words "I have been kicked to the curb"
  9. After reading today's Albany Times Union and rereading the America East announcement about the postponing fall sports to "spring"; I realized the potential that you could see the following teams at home on the same weekend: *men's and women's soccer ⚽ *football 🏈 *men's and women's basketball πŸ€ *field hockey *volleyball *men's and women's lacrosse Mark Benson has stated a concern about the logistical needs with the postponing of fall sports. Thoughts, comments....can our facilities accommodate all these teams just practicing during the same period?
  10. From Andrew Cuomo's daily update:3. If college sports resume in the fall, no fans will be allowed. Just like with professional sports, college athletics can resume but no fans or spectators will be permitted at stadiums. The link takes you to syracuse.com for their take and impact on Syracuse fans.
  11. Mark Benson, our beloved AD, has stated playing fall sports in the Spring of 2021 has logistics concerns. Mark stated the athletic department will attempt to address the concerns and logistics over the next few months in case AE and CAA moves forward.
  12. You are fine.... People understand.... I think someone needs to remind the UAlbanysports.com webmaster to take down the football 🏈 schedule πŸ“….
  13. The America East and the CAA Football 🏈 Conference made the anticipated announcement. Further, both have suspended the affected sports as they explore a spring schedule πŸ“…. Casey Stadium could be in high demand.
  14. Your opinion is reasonable. The NCAA, like our federal government, has been largely mia when it comes to common response. Conferences are the equivalent of states.
  15. Agree, however many subtexts to the same topic. Without a game opponent, we see each other as the opponent in many cases.
  16. Is this football or everything? I have not checked the CAA composite schedule for conference members affected; however UAlbany is not playing those conferences in football 🏈. Men's Basketball πŸ€ is different story.
  17. The Stadium had recently announced that Coach Iati was voted as one of America East's top assistants. Jon finished second to UVM 's top assistant, Kyle Cieplicki. Congratulations!!!
  18. Based on the ways things are unfolding, a D3 school on the schedule is unlikely.
  19. Interesting article; another view on how things could play out. However, if a regional format becomes reality, the new home schedule would make for a less exciting. No Villanova, James Madison and Delaware.
  20. Six weeks and counting for the start of fall competition, student-athletes arrive in three weeks on campus for pre-season. The time to make decisions is now. Rick Patino, Iona Coach, has publicly discussed the idea. Further, the Ivy League will not play basketball πŸ€ until 01-01-2021.
  21. ...Actually you could be right however the trend seems on my quick analysis: Can colleges and universities get through the fall academic semester dealing with COVID-19 without dealing with the additional distractions of sports and the COVID-19. Starting then cancelling an event(s) or a season would be frustrating for everyone, athletes, parents, coaches and fans.
  22. I see an eight game conference schedule πŸ“… starting on the first Saturday of March and concluding late April. So do not put away your flannel shirts and thermal gear away early. You may need for those home March games.
