  1. I concur with your assessment .... Mark Benson did the introduction...AAD & Basketball Supervisor Vic C was the moderator...a number of other UAlbany administrators from alumni association, development and sport administration attended likely around 25% of the 30 or on the zoom... When come to the Siena game ... my impression: he thinks his relationship with the Siena coach might help.... he did not mention John D'Argenio's name...Coach Killing stated in diplomatic manner that Siena's all games in the T-U is unacceptable....however he did say both teams need to prove that they are the

  2. Doc looks great---can't say the same for myself. Played 1st game for Doc in 1957. We had a Freshman team and I played 1st half of Freshman Home games then dressed for the Varsity games. In 4 years we were something like 72 - 29. Beat Siena twice. HAPPY BIRTDAY DOC!! See you next season!!

  5. Well over 25% of all college basketball players are now in the transfer portal. I wonder if the NCAA should just starting assuming everyone is transferring and create a "staying portal for those guys who elect to stay at the same school."

  6. For the record, I did approach some of the coaches about this but it was quite a while ago. It was when Bob Ford was coaching. He read the board and then declined, which to be perfectly honest, I understood. With Zoom meetings and twitter, I kind of think the need for a chat with board members has kind of passed. I suspect most people follow the coaches on twitter and some likely interact with them. I'm not sure how much more would be gained from a live chat, maybe that's just me. Over the last few years I've wondered if message boards themselves are becoming obsolete. Many of the fa

  7. It was nice . Nothing crazy stated. I asked a question about how to get more fans in the building. Coaches response was that he and his staff are going to try very hard to do that. Engage students and people in the community. They have several ideas. He also addressed the siena game and it sounds like he knew they needed to come here as well. Nothing else really stood out. Very well spoken and engaging. Look forward to the season.

  9. A terrible situation. It was bad before when we just knew about the one instance on the basketball team that UVM seemed to be covering up, but now it is that much more shameful. Disgusting when the systems meant to protect and assist those who've been harmed are instead used to protect and enable those who do the harm. I don't think anyone is naive enough to think this is a problem that's limited to only UVM, just that the other shoe is dropping there now. Hopefully there's an actual reckoning and not the typical hiring of an "independent" outside investigation that ends with a hand waving rep

  10. Those is us who knew this was bubbling under the surface immediately questioned the hiring of Tibbs. It was bad optics than and even worse now. Hopefully not a mistake that connects us to the horrendous situation and why some of us also bristled at DK brining up Lamb in his intro press conference.

  14. Fun game, with lots of action. Still need to clean up those unforced turnovers. Hogg and Yunker are quite a pair. I must admit, although Tehoka is a somewhat unique talent, I like this offense better. No standing still, no double teams collapsing on TN. Some of the movement and passing was superb. Beautiful day for a lax game!

  24. Benson hasn't even followed through with his "town hall" chats he talked so much about doing for fans. He likes to keep fans away with a 10ft poll. Maybe I'm wrong as he now has the media department for athletics all over basketball where they haven't given a crap about it for 3 years at least. So maybe his tune will change now that he has his guy in. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But that's on the school to create their own forum not a private one you'd think.

  26. First off I have no idea what they team is being asked to do on defense. I had some insights but not now. My impression has been for years is that Albany is willing to give up the outside shot and not let anything easy in close, especially in the middle. That isn't a horrible philosophy IMO if that plays into your goalie's strengths. But today and for the last couple of years we do a lot of ball watching IMO, and just way too many unnecessary slides when the opposing player isn't a scoring threat. There were two plays today where 48 collapsed in the middle when no help was needed and it was a

  27. UMBC doesn't have explosive attack men. The slides today, and for the last number of years have been hard to understand and we created much of their offense. Kunz was sliding to guys 15-20 yards out, and when we make those slides it causes the the defense to start chasing. I have never understood what is going on back there. Overall just way, way too sloppy.

  30. UVM has had a solid Men's basketball team for the past 20 years so I can see why UA has struggled to win regularly versus them. But come on, UVM lax does not have the level of success UA has has the past 20 years in lax and we now have lost 4 straight to them. Not acceptable.

  32. Hopefully after a win over Vermont, Marr and Benson will raise hell with the conference and Hartford if this costs us the regular season championship and ability to host. This is pure BS, Hartford should forfeit or show up with 12 guys and play. UA has done everything right.

  33. So, UA lost to Syracuse by a few goals and they absolutely trashed other schools in the ACC AND they got trashed by other schools. No league should get 3 or 4 tams in the tourney!

  37. UA & brook are #17 & 13 in media poll; and #15 & 14 in quints poll this am. With 2 games left (UA has a make-up with vmont; which I doubt will happen.) If UA & brook win out {with UA having the much easier remaining games), brook finishes 8-1, UA 6-2 w/o vmont make-up. brook still has to play umbc & vmont. vmont plays bingo & brook. umbc brook & NJIT. umbc capable of beating brook, but IMHO vmont is not and in fact could lose @ bingo this Saturday. So my prognostication: #1 brook 8-1 (7-2 @ worse); #2/3 UA 6-2; #3/2 vmont 6-2 (possible 5-3); #4 umbc 6-3.

  39. Well they are wrong unless they want to release it only to iPhones...that's fine but don't put out a product on google app store, have it crash repeatedly for at least a few of us and then claim it works...not yelling at you just saying that "they" are clueless as usual. The deleted my previous review...seems like this outfit has really thin skin. All the review said was 1-star, "App doesn't appear to work, feels like another under baked Mark Benson special" What's wrong with that?

It's like someone gives you a bike, it has no handlebars and no wheels, one pedal is missing...so basically a pile of $iena and I'm supposed to what...hope on it and ride it and thank them?

  43. You can really see the talent level difference in a game like this, with ACC vs AE. The Orange defensemen were like a wall. I can’t complain about the officiating, although there were a couple of fast breaks that got snuffed out by untimely whistles. 2018 is right though, so far no one has emerged to fill the shoes of a Thompson or Fields. Plus, on the defense side, a few of those close in goals to or from Rehfuss were way too easy and no one was putting a body on the ‘cuse attackmen. I do like what I see from Gash and Ron John had an amazing move, fighting off three defenders. Just not enoug

  44. For those not paying attention, or in the know, what I told Click was going to happen, happened: UNH and URI cancelled their season as well. As much as there are many things I wish our ADept and ADirector would improve on, it was very much $ienaty for people to think this was done because we were losing. Basically, most of the CAA wasn't for this spring season, it was the southern teams that wanted it. Glad more than Albany came to their senses.

  47. Might be able to top all you old timers. Saw my first UA basketball game in what is now Bishop Maggin High School winter 67-68 my freshman year. Also, saw a game in Page Hall basement Gym that winter (No sh*% they actually had pillars if not in play pretty close). Began a run of what was almost 10 years of not missing a game when UA Gym opened in the winter of 69-70. And if I may add one better; when I en-rolled in September 1967. Physical education was a required course. Since there was no building, we took PE outside, in the tunnels and just about anywhere else. We even had to take a wr
