  1. Doesn't do it for me. We aren't the Black Fam or the Gold Fam or the Yellow Fam, we are the Purple Fam. Where is the Purple?

  5. I don’t mind the black, just wish it was an alternate instead. Purple, gold, and white should be the main uniforms. Also Healy has some nice lettuce there edit: how can we be purplefam and barely have any purple in the unis lol

  6. If it ain't purple I don't want nothing to do with it. Black or gold looks too much like UMBC. We need white at home and purple on the road.

  8. I've tried both Chrome and Edge on my PC (Windows 10) and mobile phone (Android 10) and both are exhibiting the same behavior. All of the little 'icons' don't load any more. This happened about a month back or so. Works fine in old-as-dirt Internet Explorer (which many of us in the IT industry affectionately refer to as Internet Exploder cause it sucks). Example of the issue: Here is what it should look like:

  14. Eli polish up the edit button. NCAA as of this AM granted an extra year of eligibility to ALL winter athletes. Now spring, fall, and winter all included. Coach Brown glad for players who don't have to consider redshirting and don't have to worry about how many (if any) games are played or canceled this year; Coach Mullen does not know where the money is coming from; Coach @ LCC refused to comment--more questions than answers @ this point; and Benson sent out an email today asking for MONEY {of course} without a single event played or even scheduled yet 2020-21. ps I did email Nate Mason

  15. The NCAA Committee for Championship sites announced that TOM & MARY CASEY STADIUM is a QUARTERFINAL SITE for 2023!!! for Men's Lacrosse All I can say is OH MY GOD!!!.... I received notification from the NCAA via an e-mail. OK people, who do we give credit to... Mark Benson deserves some of it....

  16. Officially 8500, highest FB attendance 9052 though we’ve thought over 11K for some games. Wiki says official lax capacity is 6394, the UNC game drew 6472. Means they must figure the berm is sized for 2100

  17. Thanks for the reminder. I gotta run some updates.

  18. By putting temporary bleachers up. Pretty simple. They will likely put some sort of netting protection on the berm. That's about 2500 or so. You can probably sneak in 500-750 up with temp bleachers on the Berm. On the visitor side, you can likely fill in 250-500 more. Then, scoreboard side, they can do the same...probably get another 1000. Wouldn't shock me to get a 10,000 number, or close to it, legally. That being said, and a more UNLIKLEY scenario, is the 2nd Phase of Casey, which called for the visitors side to be made permanent as a double deck. That gets the visi

  19. What was important to me in the 1970's is the same thing in the 1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010's and now in the 2020's: The quality of the team on the court......when you started this thread you describe the color as black .... now its "poop brown"....I know branding is important ... that is why I am giving the new uniforms a chance ... "LET"S GIVE THE NEW UNIFORMS A CHANCE"... or from the TIASHOKE FARMS (Easton, NY) Instagram post....PEACE, LOVE and PUMPKINS.... for God's sake... Reponse to Eli's comments I was referencing this thread from another topic..... I have question for Eli..

  20. I heard that the special blue ribbon committee that was convened to make the jersey selection was made up of John D'Argenio (lcc Director of Athletics), the mother.in.law of an unnamed assistant coach, and Mike Trimboli ... seriously, I'm not much into fashion, but who made this call???? ... state university/bureaucratic decision making at its best... guessing that the supplier had an overstock of this product from a few years back sitting on a warehouse shelf ... 75% off ... "Come on man!"

  23. You said jerseys aren't of concern to you...so I asked, even poop brown? At this point the conversation is not about the jerseys pictured above so not sure what them being or not being black has anything to do with the current tangent? Sorry, I guess that didn't translate... Anyhow, these jerseys aren't great. The best jersey's we've had in my time as a UA fan are these: #1: #2: #3:

  27. Many have commented that Coach Brown needs some new blood and some different perspectives with his assistant coaches. IMHO Jarred should be the first to go. Nothing personal and I do wish him a happy birthday! Just do not believe he ever added much to the program as a player or a coach.

  28. I saw your comments. They are all great questions. I myself am not afraid to visit the UA campus, but that's another conversation. I am hoping for some additional communication from the school soon.

  29. Why are all individual or small group workOuts not allowed if athletes are not testing positive? HS in section 2 are competing now in sports like soccer and Field Hockey So what’s the matter with UA having at least structured work outs?

  30. BIG MISTAKE IMHO!!!!! FBS football playing coast to coast. Lacrosse NEEDS to get back on the fields facing opponents ASAP. The have already loss nearly a full season. In a separate survey of coaches only moderate optimism about having a SPRING 2021 season. Article did not really identify coaches surveyed; but Duke head coach who did vote positive, said he was not sure why so many were only moderate or below. I also do not understand coaches being so pessimistic? Isn't it a BiG part of their job to build hope, confidence and positive attitudes in players?

  31. Hopefully with NCAA guidelines now in place... the CAA will announce their plans for the late winter - spring season. I like to see something in early November 2020. With eight games allowed, I see a conference only schedule.

  33. OH come-on; Do you really think it was Benson's idea. All/most credit goes to Scott Marr. OK give Benson a + or so for saying OK we'll give it a try.

  34. Seriously? I didn't even comment here. Kick rocks dude. Not sure what game you're playing at but I don't 'muddle' the waters just for fun. And congrats, you just took a topic completely off topic...by complaining about people taking stuff off topic. *facepalm*

  35. Sometimes I see a response or a thread started .... when I respond ... I always thinking a few thoughts: Can I add some knowledge or perspective to the subject? Do I disagree with the writer about the subject and need to provide another view? Do I just want to muddle the waters? hint, hint Eli OR; Do I find someone's comments so outrageous and/or mean spirited and I decide not to comment in effort to allow the trend of the thread to die. Freedom of speech is a wonderful right. However, all rights have price and we should never put someone's livelihood in dange

  37. So you'd be okay with us wearing poop brown jerseys? I doubt that hah. It may not have been important in the 70's, but team image/branding is VERY important even at the college level these days. It helps, to some extent (maybe not so much at UA but definitely at bigger schools), the bottom line when people want to wear what the team is wearing.

  38. That’s if King Cuomo allows it. They have the cadets at Michie because King Cuomo has no jurisdiction over federal property. I’ve been thinking that they should have a limited number of fans in stadiums...professional rooters if you will. Equip them with mics and digitally multiply their effect by say 1000. Gotta be doable. That way you could have like 50 home fans and 10 travel fans and it would sound like 60,000.
