Make your check out to the University at Albany Foundation.

I will.  It will be the money I usually spend on my 4 gold seats for football.

So it's a wash.

My concern is that if the athletic department doesn't use the recent run of success to raise money, the program may slip back down the mountain. Albany, as far as lacrosse, goes is definitely way, way behind the vast majority of programs in terms of support and facilities. Even the guys just down the road did a major upgrade.

New facilities would be nice, but...it all comes down to money. Our endowment isn’t even on the same planet as theirs. Hamilton is over a Billion. That translates to more wealthy alum and donors willing to part with millions of dollars to have their name stamped on a building. If I ever hit a big ass powerball jackpot we will have the “Jimbo Mega Sports Complex” on campus. Until then, I do what I can and it’s not going to make a noticeable dent in the needed funds.

You and me no...you me and as we continue grow, our closest couple of thousand of friends over years will start to add up.
