  1. No, I’ve intentionally avoided his interviews. His words are meaningless. His record speaks volumes.

  2. Year 9 and we're still getting picked bottom of the league year in year out with like one outlier. Sigh.

  3. Also, no need to fret...the meeting last month for facilities that talked about bleachers just means we are not doing a "fixed" seat set up. Benson confirmed nearly all seats will be chairbacks. "The changes to the interior of the arena will reduce the seating capacity, which was 4,215 last season for basketball. That number will drop to approximately 3,800 due to the changes, which include seatbacks for nearly every seat. Right now, very few of our seats have backs. In the renovated arena, they’ll all have chair backs with the exception of one student section in an endzone,” Benson said. “So because the seats will be wider, our capacity will diminish. I think the trade-off is definitely worth it." I concur with his assessment.

  5. Not just at the camp on the last day ... I have spoken to AD from a Saratoga County high school ... and the assistant coach at one of the local city high school .... GG and his staff have reaching out to local schools ... members of the UAlbany football community ... my neighbor, a member of this group, was decked all new UAlbany football gear .... and talked glowing about UAlbany and the football program .... a complete turnaround from a conversation from last fall ... I have belief that either Mark Benson and/or a member of his staff have told DK, the basketball coach and GG to reach out former UAlbany athletes to help advance our athletic programs

  7. I apologize for this post having not much to do with the rest of this string or UA basketball. I heard Wyland's interview with Brian Fruscio this afternoon. Fruscio is leaving Albany Academy to become head coach at Canterbury School in Connecticut, where the coach left to become an assistant at UMBC because Josh Pelliitier left UMBC. Most of you know much more about how all this works than I do, but, I was surprised to learn that being an AE assistant was a step up from being a prep/boarding school head coach. Also, Nick Fruscio is an assistant at the same JC in Florida where Cece Mayo spent her year between playing at UAlbany and Indiana State. If this needs to be deleted for being irrelevant to this string, I'm OK with that.

  14. "Actions speak louder than words." GG is a smooth operator, obviously, with his words because he's been extended multiple times while having the following stats to his credit: 36-49 1 playoff appearance in 8 years 5 out of 8 years he's had 4 wins or less Only one 8 win or more season (which is likely what you need AT MINIMUM to make the playoffs or have an outside shot) His actions, on the other hand...lol, I'll just leave it at that.

  15. Albany Law alumni would definitely object but not so much if it kept the school afloat. I suspect a merger will happen sooner, rather than later. I went to a school very similar to Albany Law and if it were not part of the fabric of another university, I am not so sure it would survive even though it produces fantastic alumni. Law schools are in huge financial trouble, generally speaking. Albany Law would be best served to be part of UA. Albany Med won't become part of UA unless it really wants to expand it's research offerings, then it is a no brainer. For Albany to get AAU status, I don't think the med school is a requirement (even though almost every AAU school has a med school) but the law school, engineering, and ETC will help...and getting CNSE could put us right over the edge. Union University is a mere affiliation of schools and labs that Med, Law, Pharmacy, Union College, and Dudley Labs are all a part of however, no entity reports, is governed by, or really has any control over the other, including Union University as a corporate entity of itself. Getting any of Med, Law, or Pharmacy would not be something negotiated with Union College.

  17. Agreed 100%.I like our chances of having a decent to a good year if things break our way. The schedule is light after we survive Baylor and no one is expecting anything from us. IMHO Delaware and Villanova are pretty good and they and barley beat us last year. This new RB from Pitt is the real deal. We just need the OL to block. Gotta win the close games this year

  21. Looks like our games could be split between the MVP and HVCC. The hold up is the AE schedule right now, we need that to be finalized by the league so the school has hard dates for the MVP. Siena has first preference but if Albany is willing to change dates or play double headers on SIENA gamedays, e.g. using Siena's court...then we are likely to play there. It sounds like the preference is to play at MVP.

  22. Unless Jamar's family is moving with him from Finland, I don't see him coming to Coach. I also don't necessarily think it is a good thing as much as we all adore Jamar. Right now, we need a top assistant tactician (with experience), a DBO, and a recruiter. I don't see Jamar as a DBO type...and he isn't ready for a top assistant role. Who knows, maybe this is the next step for Jamar...and I think he's enough removed from Brown (meaning not on his staff) to make this happen. But we really need a recruiter.

  26. Not putting words in my mouth at all Honestly, this is so freaking bizarre that they didn't go to the MAAC. The MAAC is 10 schools for 2023, with the addition of full-time member Mt. Saint Mary's, and associate members LIU, Wagner, Sacred Heart, and VMI. I just don't see why the MAAC would have had an issue going to 11 for two years, especially considering that Merrimack is not eligible for the post-season. Sure, from Merrimack's perspective, they may have said to the NEC that from a cost-containment perspective, I'd rather play UVM, Albany, Lowell, Bryant, UMBC, Bing, NJIT and Lowell...but honestly, that's a bit of a wash distance wise. From my perspective, it is irrelevant that the AE is light years ahead of the MAAC in lax because Merrimack can't get an at-large in 2023 due to their transition. So yep, considering they are in the AE footprint, considering the AE is likely to add a 10th at some point, considering the rumors that Albany is being courted by the CAA (I don't think we are going), and considering that a 1/3 of Hockey East schools are AE members (and Merrimack plays in the HE)...I do think they are "trying out"--at least in their minds--for the AE. It would have been a non-starter years ago...but Bryant changed that calculus. If they can do something with their gym...and can build out the football stadium and go into the Big South, I wouldn't be shocked to see them invited in 3-4 years. As for NEC, I don't think they are dead or dying...in fact I think they will merge with the MEAC at some point.

  28. So, forgetting the early years (and starting with 2005 where we grew), over 16 years we averaged 2,583 in a dump. Honestly, with better amenities and chairbacks, I can see us averaging 3,000. 3,800 is perfect.

  30. In a perfect world we would not have lost any capacity with the changes ... but, if we are getting 3,800 a night and turning folks away, that will be a wonderful problem to have ... all "seat back" chairs is a huge plus ... we can start talking about a new arena with larger capacity in a few years ... I like the direction/momentum ... to steal a quote, "It's a great day to be a Great Dane!" - TTP

  31. I think the less seats is perfectly fine as we all stated. It fills in the arena more for the TV viewing audience and it doesn't look nearly as empty. Plus, I think seat-backs over bleachers is acceptable in every form.

  33. Looks like the name change will occur: Broadview Arena "In the wake of the SEFCU-CAP COM merger in June, the arena’s name will be changed to the new branding for SEFCU, O’Connor said. The two credit unions will operate under the Broadview brand after their merger is official this August."

  34. If I were the AD this is what I would do: Play only 1 or 2 non conference "home" games. Let us get a little used to the venue for the conference schedule. Playing mostly away games this year will allow us to have a larger home non conference schedule next year. The 1st year of the new arena. I would play this year at the Albany Armory. I went there for the Championship a couple of weeks ago. It was hot but there were 2k people there. The parking was fine and the venue was fine. It's a smaller venue so even with only 1k people there I'm sure it can get very loud and be a decent home court advantage. There is not a ton of stuff there so scheduling should not be an issue. I'm also guessing it will not cost the university much and will keep the games in albany.

  38. Probably because the Maac is and has been for years the lowest lacrosse conference in the country. Where at least until the last couple of years the AmEast in lacrosse has been an upper echelon conference; just below the power conference; and has historically had its fair share of "at large" bids.
