  1. DP, always the voice of reason. I think everyone, at least in this community, can understand and agree that there are situations where black people are treated differently just because they are black. If our players think they need to kneel in order to unite behind the message to fix that, more power to them! Only thing I ask is that hypocrisy, virtue signaling and other stuff like that stays out of it. Good for our team.

  2. I gotta admit, this stuff used to bother me when it first started with CK. I've done a good deal of soul searching on why and arrived at the conclusion of why should it? These are Americans, exercising their free will and God given right to take a stand. I may not agree with the nuances of the argument or exactly be aligned on the issue (not to say I think there are no problems) but I live and let live on this whole issue. The conversation needs to be had as there is wide division here. That's just me...I'm done (I think)...

  3. So, we grab a win, score a bunch of points and I come here to find a political fire. It's going to be a long friggin winter. I have to admit, after watching a mob of people smash the windows of the Capital and, among other things, literally take a dump inside, I find kneeling for the anthem quaint after that.

  5. Charlotte, NC is where I thought I would end up if I ever moved and I guess it's still a backup if FL doesn't pan out like we think it will. But we're hoping the lack of income tax, weather (even when its brutally hot) and other small things like that will make up for any nostalgic longing for the 518 that I've known for virtually me entire life (except for that stint in the USSR lol). But yeah, no more live UA sports for me although I will likely maintain my season tickets and may come home for homecoming, etc. or so. I consider it a donation to help keep the program afloat. I honestly w

  8. So if we win today. A big if... sweep binghamton and Maine. Spilt with everyone else, that I believe puts us a 11-7 in the league. I think that would be acceptable. Want better but that would not be too bad . It starts with a win today.

  10. Don't wanna take away from the game but.... Isn't it funny with someone has a different view then someone else .. you get a post like this... this is exactly what my last post was about. He is just saying he doesn't support it . Nothing wrong with that. Its an Opinion. Right or wrong. I say do what you want. But respect the other side. You wanna kneel great. It my right not to support it . And vice versa. If you like the kneeling give more !!!! But posts like this is the problem with this country. Its saying "IF YOU DONT LIKE MY POINT OF VIEW, GET OUT" That's wrong

  11. This is a program that has been a in trouble for a while. Over the last few years I've been very vocal in my disappointment. Now I can't even work up the anger to light myself on fire here. Let's face it, the cold hard truth is that this program is dead or near dead. A program pretending to be Div 1 for whatever reason. A few years ago it started going sideways and now plowing new depth of emberassing. I'm not calling out the kids who are trying nor am I gonna go in on them. From AD down this program is a failure though....remains to be seen if the train can be put back on the tracks.

  12. I am a long time, avid supporter of this team, this coach, and this program.....so let me say what we are all hesitant to say: This team is bad and almost unwatchable; there are probably 3 decent Division One level players on the squad; the level of our talent has dropped off dramatically over the past few years and those players (other than Cam Healey) are grad transfers; there is no plan in place - the current team is just a mishmosh of players thrown together - as opposed to building off some young foundation; we have no real PG; we have absolutely NO inside game; we used to put some f

The entire platform is based on individual liberty. I get the fun position of being able to agree and disagree with people on both sides about 50% of the time. Great for being a troll or a friend depending on the topic. That said, standing for free speech at all times is the key piece here. I've been pretty clear that my extreme distaste at Jimbo's post was because he said their use of kneeling caused him to

  18. With the greatest of restraint, I'll say this: The people who were most at odds with the kneeling seem to the ones who claim censorship most at this juncture. My biggest frustration about all of this is that regardless of what side you are on, politics used to be "The Art of the Compromise" but now its "agree with me or I'll take my ball and go home." A lot of this has to do with the blurred lines between church and state, and social ideology intermingling with political action (history lesson available upon request). All I see right now is a country completely brought to its kn

  19. Yes, it was an emotional leap for me to suggest he supported the storming of the capital. I apologise for that. That said, the people that did that are also the people that complain about kneeling. Supporting kneeling or BLM definitely does not mean supporting any violent protests, even if 93%+ of all protests did not include any violence, some wackos did go crazy. That should be condemned as well. For the record, I am not left wing, I didn't vote for or support Biden.

  20. So... Players utilizing their first amendment right to show support for the oppressed people of the country over Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend makes you decide to go stop supporting the team and being part of the GDAC program? You know that kneeling is a sign of respect right? Go Bing yourself. The team doesn't want or need your support anyway. Wish this site didn't autocorrect that word to Bing. It reads GO F - U - C - K YOURSELF. You are probably a Trump supporter that thinks it's perfect acceptable to storm the capital though.

  22. Some say Rizzuto is not a D1 player. They may be right. But IMHO he makes the perfect captain. He gives 110%, 110% of the time; whether he plays 2 minutes or 38 minutes he always stays positive; he only cares about winning; he is fearless and not afraid of getting into the face of any of ANY opponent or teammate. Maybe he does not have Levi Levine's skill level; but like Levi, he is the perfect sole captain.

  24. In my opinion this program is where it probably should be. People seem to think we’ve had some sort of sustained success and tradition of winning. Yes we’ve had 5 trips to the NCAA tournament, but only 2 regular season championships. That in my opinion is the true measure of sustained success. Sprinkle in those 2 first place finishes the and after that is prob between 4-6th place finish on average.

  25. SJ’s has played a lot of quality teams but the lowest amount of points they allowed prior to us was 83. We mustered a whopping 64. And not to beat the dead horse but that’s part of the big problem and has been for years. It’s boring. Maybe there’s some nuanced changes but the offense is the same. It’s boring for us and it’s boring for the players. If you’re a dynamic offensive player would you come here to play? What’s the pitch? Hey we’ll do 15 dribble handoffs 20+ feet from the hoop, try the slip screen 15 times and then hope someone gets open before the shot clock expires. We won’t p

  26. The St. Joseph's coach is sitting in his office, looking at his team's schedule….he sees that he is 0-8 with only A10 conference games remaining….he thinks for a second, picks up the phone and dials a number in Upstate New York and says "Hey, Will, do you have a second?".

  31. Saw the replay several times. Seemed to me a NO CALL. Even the homie announcers "sort of" indicated they thought it would be NO CALL. What I saw was a scramble for the ball; Duncan flat on his back on the floor kicked his feet out, did not really look like any intent, just trying to maintain equilibrium I think, but the kick did get CJ. When Duncan started to get up it looked like CJ pumped Duncan causing him to fall back down. Probably was with purpose, but definitely not overly aggressive. Just letting Duncan KNOW he got kicked, IMHO do not think CJ was out of control or trying to knock Dun

  32. Was following game online then decided to tune in late. So glad I did. Hopefully the W sends the team on a run. First half and second half, a matter of execution. Danes are always prepared.

  33. I guess. Still, 56 of 63 points came from new players. That’s pretty remarkable. The team needs some time at the charity stripe in practice. WB must be having nightmares over missed FTs.

  34. They were very bad...they had their best half of basketball all season besides the last minute or so. Let's see if that's an anomaly or a start of something. This is what you do if you want to shut the critics up. Good for them...It's a start but long way to go.

  38. Becker has won 70% of his games, Brown 51%. Becker has done that with worse facilities, etc. No excuse for why our brand of basketball is so ugly/not exciting. Few years ago, game threads were 9 or 10 pages long. We're lucky to hit 3-4 these days. Program is losing the interest of its fan base. Where is Healey tonight?

  41. Hutch will play a little because of our lack of size . Healy is still playing his way back and I believe will play a nice roll. Anderson is absolutely lost and will not play much . They are taking their time with Amica. Apparently the head injury was relatively bad and they want to make sure he is ok .

  47. In this morning's TU, Wednesday's practice was delayed to evening because Cam Healy had a root canal, Lulka is questionable after a "procedure" Tuesday, Chuck Champion had a screw put into his foot recently and his minutes may be limited, CJ Kelly and JoJo Anderson are both coming off knee surgery and Kelly is about 80%. Brown says we're close to adding a game around the time the Bryant game was, and close to another game after Christmas. The UMBC games at 4:00 Saturday and 2:00 Sunday are an hour later than originally scheduled.

  48. Not optimistic about seeing many games and never really was. In the spring of 2020, some friends who work at a health care provider told me their headquarters would be remote until summer of 2021. That's when life would possibly begin to resemble "normal." If Covid were a plumbing issue, I would listen to plumbers. If Covid were a legal issue, I would listen to lawyers. But it's a health issue so I've listened to people in the health care industry. I also had a client who is younger than me (earlier 40s with no previous health conditions) get Covid. They were in a coma for a month, hospi
