  1. I think this quote from Billy Madison is perfect as a response to your blithering idiocy. Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. Mark Benson? Atlantic? Goose Rocks Beach ME? What does any of that have to do with answering the question that was asked? '$iena or get off the pot' applies here too if you aren't a fan of Billy Madison. If you can't answer why there is a lack of assistants listed on the roster, then just keep it movin ol man.

  2. Heard today to expect an announcement next week. 1. They have to decide what to call the arena after the SEFCU/CapComm merger 2. Not decided yet where to play next year, but HVCC seems to have the inside track

  4. Did ya know that I once thought your screen name was like diss-lank? Why would you want to diss a lank? Beats me. Then I saw that it’s really diesel-yank. But I ask you, why would anyone want to yank a diesel? Maybe a 5hp kicker on a sailboat, or a lawn mower. Lots of rocks in Maine. And geez...what’s with all the goose s#$@ena? Oh yeah, this is Goose Rocks Beach. Hope that clears it up for ya. Peace out.

  8. HVCC from what I remember haven't been since 2007 (went to twice) is similar to the current SEFCU arena configuration. It is all bleachers so that is what it is. The scoreboard is very similar to the old scoreboard and parking wasn't terrible. Probably our best option. Saint Rose would be a second option but from my time there as a master's student the parking is HORRIBLE. I doubt the parking situation has changed. I don't think Siena wanted us using the RAC or MVP. So yeah HVCC makes the most sense, glad they are making a wise choice. OT- Could inflation and supply chain problems be the reason the athletic administration decided to do both projects (UG and SEFCU) at the same time?

  9. IMO HVCC is a no brainer. It's not much farther from the UA campus, so it doesn't require people from the north (CP, Saratoga, etc.) and the south (Selkirk, Coxsackie, etc.) to have to travel that much farther. If they went to Glenns Falls Civic center, for example, that would have been brutal for the southern Capital Region folks. No bueno. And when I graduated from HVCC in 2008, the gym seemed more than big enough to accommodate such a scenario. We are in a slump attendance wise and aren't packing gyms anywhere. The ONLY problem with HVCC is The Hill. But I'd just as quickly go down 787/87, hit 90, and come through Rt. 4 and the southern entrance.

  11. I am wondering whether the Huerter Impact facility is in the mix? I know it can be configured for a full sized NCAA D1 Court, but, I do not know anything about seating capacity or parking.

  12. I know I’d have had a hard time sleeping not knowing that. Of course I do have the disadvantage of not hearing the soothing sound of the surf crashing on goose poop covered rocks….

  13. What steps are being taken by the UAlbany Sports and University Administration to protect our student athletes and the University in general?..... I am almost certain there is reason for the BigPurpleFans to be concern ... follow the link to the Times Union story: https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/A-bear-and-cub-wander-into-Albany-17267700.php?IPID=Times-Union-HP-most-popular At a time when our basketball team is on campus, has the coaching staff been given the proper instruction on how to handle a bear sighting on campus.

  14. To me the funniest part of the thread is Goose Rocks Beach. I’ve spent plenty of time in that neck of the woods, so i got a huge “wtf is going on, did someone slip me a gunnie” vibe when reading that post. I couldn’t fathom what a random enclave of Kennebunkport had to do with recruiting, unless we were looking for a few secret service agents to run security for the Danes. (Goose Rocks is nearby the Bush family compound). I hope CW is passing whatever he puffed before typing that mess of a post.

  15. Further, if you have not learned over the last several years, Mark Benson and his team move at their own pace whether you or I agree or disagree ..... As quick or "slow" .... When I am looking out into the Atlantic from Goose Rocks Beach ME knowing who are Dwaynes' new assistants are or where I will be sitting in November for a WBB or MBB game is of no concern .... So get in the this sports car of life and enjoy the ride. Was there a question that really needed answering.... Not as far as I was concerned.

  16. I do not follow social media; but I am simply curious what is going on with the two vacancies??? Obviously recruiting etc is happening, do not need social media to know about that. So not sure why you have responded to my question without trying to answer it at all??

  17. Everything General Admission I guess??? No reserved/assigned seats??? If they do it this way, I know some people who already said they will not get season tickets this year; but I said you might be jeopardizing your seat choice/priority for when "SEFCU/CAP COM" reopens 11/1/203?????????

  18. If they are going to play at random gyms for the games, how are they going to do season tickets?

  20. So, unless this is completely wrong...the contract has been awarded to the low bidder...LaChase Construction out of Rochester. The value is $10,892,000 and includes an Alternative that each bidder had to price, which is wifi routing. Very cool that the building will have wifi upgrades, which will definitely help the fans and game day production activities. There were 6 bidders, the average bid was just over $12million. At $1,162,233.33 under the average bid, it is almost impossible for the school to have ignored the savings. I believe the original budget was for $10,000,000.00 for construction and $2,500,000.00 for the bleacher system. So, if the bleachers are included, then this is a good deal...if not, it was about what I would expect for current construction costs that have risen in the last two years (average increase is in the 30% range, this was 11.6%). If that includes the purchase of the bleachers, then it is a heck of a deal. The contract start date is May 27...completion date is Nov 1, 2023. There is a $300,000.00 budget for Field Changes. Field Changes usually do not require detailed approvals and are different than Change Orders. LaChase is a mid-sized construction outfit, and has done a ton of collegiate work (including the Dutch Quad reno). Major athletic specific jobs include: Murchie Field House at University at Buffalo- https://www.lechase.com/portfolio/university-at-buffalo/ RIT's new hockey rink- https://www.lechase.com/portfolio/rochester-institute-of-technology/ It is stunning, and 4000 seats.

  21. Well, Justin Brown is gone, but I haven't heard anything about recruiting a replacement. Justin was always responsive regarding questions or issues. Athletics definitely needs to have a good customer service person. I hope they are planning to fill the position.

  22. That's the one. IL was recommending nothing. It was an opinion.

  23. Heavily carried by Coach Vives and the track teams. As for the far right column Track doesn’t have regular season champs or we’d have some there too (agree we need some others to step up here).

  24. Great job overall...but I am going to be the downer and point to the far right column. That, is not acceptable...and we must improve.

  25. The Analyst calculates that based on opponents' won-lost records, Albany has the 12th-hardest FCS schedule for 2022. https://theanalyst.com/na/2022/06/fcs-schedules-are-not-built-the-same-the-strength-of-all-130-heading-into-the-2022-season/

  27. Still on the fence about renewing my tickets. I'm not a football fan, but I have 4 great seasons. I only make it to a few games a year and treated them as a donation. It just feels bad when I can't even give my tickets away because no one wants them. Continuing to lose makes it even harder.

  28. Absolutely SHOCKING news. They were set to announce on the 16th that they were joining. I think they are left with two choices right now: Albany and Fairfield.

  29. A recommendation means a publication like IL has formal influence with the NCAA. It does not, hence like you just stated, it’s merely an opinion.

  30. Upon further review, the site is a joke. Anything that has an IVY in the top 10 can't be trusted. It is based on previous years W/L records. That said, we still have probably a Top five toughest FBS matchup.
