  1. Reviving this thread, the TU reports the ADs had preliminary talks Thursday. Sounding like his predecessor, Killings said the game should return to SEFCU Arena. “The game needs to happen on both campuses,” he said. “I think that’s the right way to go about it. Regardless of arena size, that’s what both sides of the fans want. They want to have that engaging experience inside their home-court environments.” Siena, UAlbany discuss reviving men's basketball rivalry

  3. I'm w/ you on Doles. I think he's a very solid/versatile big for the AE. I just don't think you need to be 6'11" to play center at this level.

  4. 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."

  5. 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. 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.

  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!

  20. It is all about face saving, then blame the other for the failure of the negotiations.... Considering playing the game at SEFCU Arena is a show stopper for nearly every Siena fan... I do not know why the discussions continue expect for the fact that Benson hoping for a six figure contract to play at the T-U Center for three or four years...like $75,000 to $100,000 per game

  24. Eli, I hope you and your family are now thriving in the Tampa area. Yes, the traffic situation here in South(east) Florida was something that was difficult to adapt to. Many people blame the New Yawkers for the problem. Others blame the Latin Americans. I've driven in both of those places, so I can believe it. I also blame the people who actually grew up here. In any case, each group has learned the bad habits of the other groups. I have seen people down here do things with their vehicles that stun me., literally stun me.

  26. Happy to see Ramos get action. Should have happened sooner, but you throw him in with little game time in the most important game of the season? Even the announcers are slamming our face-off strategy. Just really random coaching decisions in the biggest game of the season.

  27. I would like to think our concerns about this topic include: That all the victims and potential victims receive the support and assistance in dealing with any abuse That abuse allegations are thoroughly and completely investigated If crimes were committed and laws broken, the violators of the crimes are fully prosecuted to the full extent of the law That administrators and coaches are helf accountable if they were aware of the abuse and violations of athletic policies and took no action to report the abuse and/or violations These allegations are reminder to the UAl

  28. Traffic is terrible in Tampa. These people can't drive OR maintain cars. I've seen like 3 rollovers, 2 car fires and numerous other accidents in 5 weeks. Probably didn't see that in a year in NY (and they said NY had the worst drivers...probably cause of the cabbies in NYC). One clown was drunk and flew off of I4 into a dealership parking lot (literally) at 110mph (5 min from me). Killed one of her 3 passengers last I knew. I was shocked to learn there is no safety inspections (I knew they didn't care about emissions). Basically if it rolls down the road, it's good to go. Now I now why t

  31. Can't explain the inconsistency other than coaching and preparation. I think the team is young on the fringes, but the main guys are not. Attack Patterson, grad student, Yunker, Jr. Hogg Sophomore. Most of the middies other than Salit and Tucker are on the older side with John and Goldsmith, 5th years, Burgmaster a senior. The defense is not young, and we have a grad student as the goalie. I'm not trying to split hairs with you, but I think the issues are much more than this being a young team. Completely agree with you about the lack of leadership on offense, and I think some of that was

  33. 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.

  34. Terrible production by Vermont. Very long range & no replays. Was listed as ESPN3; but moved to+?? Which I had recently canceled. Thought I would not need it until fall. AmEast network has been good mostly. Why did/does Vermont use ESPN 3/+, with such poor equipment?? Anyone know what AmEast tournament media outlets wil be?? Now that I re-upped (+) still want to delete.

  35. No insights, but my guess is that while Coach Marr would have good things to say about Tehoka to potential GM's and coaches, getting dismissed from the team certainly didn't do him any favors. Why draft a guy where as the superstar player he was still asked to leave the program? and there were other issues prior to his eventual dismissal. Honestly, I don't think he made the players around him better.

  36. 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.

  40. Depending what happens this weekend; there is very little reason to play that game. The 4 teams in the AmEast are pretty much set. A game on 4/28 MAY affect the seedings, but most likely not. That being said I'm glad UA is playing the game. The more they play, the better they get and these covid delays and not playing only hurts teams in my opinion.

  42. 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.

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?

Thought about putting it in a safe deposit box in case it was worth something some day. As for me, I’m looking forward to the Final Four from Indigenousapolis. Ciao!

  49. I fully realize that my views on the UAlbany - LCC mbb game are in the extreme minority of the posts on this forum and I'm not intending on debating with any of the high volume posters. However, if the series is dead, I feel it should be stated and known before asking us to buy season tickets. Much as some have stated an intention to reduce their football tickets for their grievances with the Head Coach, I am considering reducing my MBB tickets if it does not include tickets to a home game v LCC or the ability to obtain more or better tickets for a road game.
