  1. I think the response to this whole pandemic has been what the military refers to as a “clusterf***.” The hyper partisan politics and polarized media coverage have exacerbated everything. Every step or misstep is magnified and used for political advantage. The President runs his mouth when he ought to just shut up. The congressional leadership either remains silent or lies and uses inflammatory language. The so called experts change course on a whim or for a non medical reason. The models and predictions have been horribly wrong. The Gov made some horrible decisions and ridiculous forecasts of

  3. Hello everyone. Wasn’t sure where to post this then I saw the questions about where is David. Looks like you all got most of it right. He is playing in Cyprus and doing well. Recently launched a business during his downtime between games and so far looks like his decision to pass on the G League for Europe was the right call. Wanted to post an interview David recently did as I thought (based on previous discussions) you may enjoy the content. At the 1:06 mark David is asked to compare the coaching staffs at UA and FSU. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/hear-the-s

  5. We have 3 losses by a total of 11 pts. (Lehigh by 4, Manhattan by 6 and Bucknell by 1) in those 3 games we totalled 49 turnovers. in these 3 games we managed to get off a total of 154 FGA. add in 49 turnovers and about 32% of the time we didn't get a shot off. We have to learn to value the ball!!! PS. We could really use Lulka, too. I think is importance is undervalued by most. We need another guard!!!

  10. Anyone who thinks the statement 'black lives matter' is racist, or is intended to make white people feel sorry for being white, has a fundamental misunderstanding of what the movement is about. Please, let me try to help you understand.... Right now, when you hear "black lives matter' you're interpreting it as "black lives matter more than white/blue/latino/asian lives", which is incorrect. That is *not* what the movement is about, but unfortunately many have been lead to believe this by people who want to delegitimize the movement. The correct way to interpret is: "black lives matte

  13. UMBC big guys may be more athletic but were brutal at the free throw line - 3 of 9. That hurt them down the stretch. Tough road win to bounce back after the Hartford loss. Healy and Ahmad go 2-12 from three and we win on the road. I'll take that. Great to see other guys stepping up, we're a different team when other guys score besides the two big guns. Love De Sousa posting up. Would love to see more of that.

  14. *If you count the Dampots game. A few thoughts so far: -the in-season play hasn't fully met the preseason expectations. -We haven't been able to put the team on the floor that created the preseason expectations. -We need another guard in the rotation in the worst possible way. -Cam Healy can do just about anything but we're asking him to do too much. -Ahmad Clark isn't driving me as crazy as he did last year. That's not to say he doesn't drive me crazy. He has reduced chucking up threes, more or less. If he takes more than 4 or 5, we aren't winning. You can basica

  15. Recruiting is especially tough when two key players leave very late (18/19 - too late to get valued players) then follow that by having one injury plagued early part of the season (19/20) and panic sets in. Albany was coming off I believe seven 19+ win seasons (7 post season invites) before the Post Graduate departures which appear to be good moves for Cremo and Nichols personally but tough for UA. Both were lightly recruited and developed nicely enough at UA to become interesting to P5 programs. Should we be upset about losing games? Sure! Anytime you're not winning you should

  16. Clark's best game in a UAlbany uniform. 26 pts, 6 rbs, 8 assists, a steal, a block and sacrificing everything to take that charge late in the game. I actually thought that was a really entertaining game. Lots of scoring, both teams shot well and a former Duke player walked off our floor on the losing end. All it really lacked was Red Panda at halftime. We basically only played two guards in that game.

  19. While I still do believe that COVID-19 is more than a flu, I will say that my trust in the gubberment has deteriorated considerably, regardless of aisle. CDC/WHO can't seem to agree on guidelines, Cuomo sends thousands of seniors to their death thanks to his nursing home fiasco, we have reports that for every 1 confirmed case there is likely 10 not confirmed but for sure sick, we keep hearing that labs are screwing up results which is leading to false positives or false negatives (which is doing who knows what to the numbers which are then used to dictate policy), protests are allowed to go on

  21. I’d have to see what the plan was and what the infection rates were at the time. If it can be done safely, sure. I was at some games last year where it looked like most of the upper deck was practicing social distancing anyway. The opposite stands are usually sparsely occupied. I’d give it a shot unless it was apparent people were taking unnecessary risks. I still see brain dead a-holes walking around stores without a mask.

  22. There's an interesting working paper that was recently published by a couple of economists that looked at the economic impact of social distancing and quarantine among different US cities during the 1918 Pandemic, which is the closest analogue to this pandemic. They found that cities that took aggressive and early public health measures to slow down the spread actually recovered quicker economically than cities who did not respond as quickly or aggressively. I guess having a few million people dead is not good for economic recovery. https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=356

  23. I could see fall sports delayed or cancelled, but honestly, if we as a country aren't back to normal by the time winter sports start practice we will have much bigger issues than college sports. We will be in the great depression 2.0 and it will be bad. Very bad. Like more people suffering and potential deaths than the virus could kill if every American caught it type bad.

  24. A simple 1-32 ranking doesn’t tell you how far apart conferences are. I used to argue this with $iena fans when they’d say the MAAC was so superior to AE. Leagues 14 and 30 were as close as 1 and 6. It’s like the Power 6 conferences are generals, there are about five leagues that are lieutenants, and the other 20 are arguing over who deserves to be Private First Class.

  26. Not much point in arguing about Clark anymore. Yes, he often tried to do too much and yes he often made shaky decisions but watching him all year, he competed harder than any player in recent memory. If we had another PG to move him off the ball it would have been a different story but this whole season has been one if. Great to see Cam Healy look like Cam Healy.

  27. Great to see Ahmad get the recognition as he played all-out, all the time. Finished 5th in the conference in scoring, 4th in assists and 3rd in steals. Sorry to see the season crumble around him because he made great strides this year.

  28. Last game of the regular season. Team is on a slide going into game 30 at home vs. SBU. A loss there gives this game 0 value. A win might make this important for a home game in the playoffs (unlikely) . Starting the thread for this game early to share this article... http://www.therepublic.com/2020/02/26/a_shining_moment_speidel_to_take_court_for_senior_night_at_vermont/ Feel good story: UVM will start star recruit Josh Spiedel who was hurt in a car accident before attending UVM. He was never able to play again, but UVM honored the scholarship. Will Brown and John Becker

  29. (I'm sure they are all individually fine men but...) This team sucks so bad. Honestly, if every single player quit and left the team and we started from scratch, I'd be more pumped about the future than I am right now. Not a single bright spot to look forward too. I had business trips to start February and basically didn't follow UA hoops for a good 2-3 weeks as I was on the road and came back to this absolute horse $iena of a basketball program. Unwatchable. Undefendable. Unspinnable. Unmitigated disaster. As a Jets fan, I'm used to 'just end the season' chants...never thought it would

  32. Agree. That's your captain being a captain. Ahmad was locked in. Thought he made a nice effort late in the game to get Rizzuto the ball and maybe get him going offensively. He's been a monster in conference play. Great energy from the seniors - Clark, Lauderdale and Hansen. Maybe Hansen's best game since he's been here. Would be great to see the seniors take ownership of their remaining game and go out a winner. Healy...just wow. Crowd was 2K but it seemed like more. Maybe just because everyone went bananas when Frusc hit the bucket to go over 100. That was a party.

  38. Did the basketball football doubleheader. I waited to get home to read the threads, which I thought might be interesting. I'm on t football next. I expect it will be similar. We stink, we're lousy, things are looking better, we win. Wish we could play a complete game, but we'll take it. Put the gas can back in the garage (we'll need it for the snowblower).

  40. I talked with Justin Brown yesterday. Told him I was very happy to make my GDAC donation no matter what, but was wondering why my seat payment had not been applied. He pretty much said what I speculated above. He confirmed ticketing etc has absolutely ZERO idea, what is going on and are holding payments to avoid or minimize having to issue credits. He claims UA is receiving absolutely NO guidance from the State, the NCAA, CAA or AmEast at this point. Seems everyone is waiting for someone to take the lead?? As an aside, CAA seems to have a plan in place for everything except football; and

  42. All good and wonderful statements and I understand that the culture of hiding behind anonymous threads can’t be changed. A lot of what you guys say is very true. Just seems the same type of people seem to gravitate towards these forums and for the most part become negative threads attacking good peoples livelihoods. Myself and every alumni worth anything will stand behind Coach Marr forever. That loyalty goes way beyond the lacrosse field for all of us. I believe that understanding is why people don’t post their names.

  43. This is ridiculously hard for me to write....but I truly feel like Coach needs to look at his own staff and evaluate. It simply has not produced since the unfortunate departure of Chad O'Donnell. I truly believe he needs at least one, if not more fresh blood. We have had a strange year, and you need to account for injuries, etc. But the lack of progression and, in some cases severe regression, can't only be put on the kids. Right now, aside from Cam Healy and Trey Hutchinson, name me 3 other starters for next year. I'll wait while eating my burger...

  47. They are impressive as always and I am sure debates go on about moving up to FBS and maybe joining the MAC but if I were a student or alum, I would say hell no. They win ship after ship in the FCS. Hugh growing pains moving up, hugh expenses, and for what? An occasional appearance in the Weedeater Bowl or Depends for Men Bowl cause they won the MAC or got to 6 wins. They would never be sitting around on 1st Sunday of Dec waiting to see if they are playing Clemson or Alabama in a national semifinal. Keep loading up the trophy case I would say in the FCS.

  48. I assume some of you won’t engage with me because based on the way I see you talk about the kids you probably slammed my son. LOL. But as it relates to Brown he is as solid as it gets as a coach. Do I agree with everything he does? Of course not, but he can coach.

I know there are a fair amount of us hoping to register here to post, but not a single one of us has been successful (which means any Albany fans trying to register likely can't either). Certainly some fans are taking this game too lightly but many of us certainly aren't. People are still riding high after the 48-14 dismantling of our rival Montana who also happened to be the #3 team in the country at the time, but I'll be the first to tell you we could play that game 100 times and never win by that big of margin again, it was a perfect storm.

Offensively he sets screens and seals the offensive perfectly. The problem is his limited skills but he is always in the right postion .
