  1. Kellon is the type of kid that we should point to and say, “we know nothing about what goes into recruiting”.
  2. I’ve got an early season man crush on Jojo and Kellon. Not ashamed to admit it.
  3. I honestly did not understand the Taylor pickup. Long (or short this year) season however, I’m already eating crow. An efficient and active 6 and 4 so far. Has been somewhat disruptive on defense. I like what he brings.
  4. Yep. I think this year, with back to back games, you will see many guys play.
  5. Early observations: we don’t have much size unless Hanks is in there we are light years ahead of last year’s beginning Rizzuto looks determined This may be the most athletic team we have had if we had a full season these guys would be super dangerous but the second half of conference play im somewhat impressed considering the limitations And i like the energy At one point, we had an explosive small lineup with shafer being the tallest player Btw Brown said he was upset they shafer didn’t get a chance with injuries last year Well, he looked at
  6. Taylor looks very athletic, and can post ip in this league. Kelly has a sweet stroke. So far it looks like they’re five games deep into the year and we haven’t played a game. no surprises yet. oh, and can Lulka tey and stay healthy. Jeesh.
  7. I’m sitting here with espn3 waiting for this shindig. Wtf. can we also discuss the starting lineup— Kellon Taylor is a surprise.
  8. Anyone thinking there will be a winter season is just dreaming. Was speaking to my neurology doctor at Mass General last week and they are prepping to shift huge portions of their staff to Covid and flu treatment. The shift is expected in late January and through February. Massachusetts has done a pretty solid job with Covid, Boston in particular, so when a top doctor is saying it’s going to be bad...I trust him. The NCAA saw the writing on the wall, which is likely why they just granted the extra year of eligibility for all winter sports athletes even before the season started.
  9. Based on what is coming back, it's actually a pretty tough schedule. The three away games are going to be knock-em down sockfests. The 'Nova game is a marquee game as they are likely going to be VERY highly ranked.
  10. 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
  11. What is there to say. And, he's doing a fabulous job on the topic. Google Benson and Doc for a youtube video. He's on the ball..
  12. Last I looked, the school isn’t in the business of “adulting”. It’s clear a structured life (what athletics brings) isn’t stopping them from not “adulting”. So at that point, the schools job is to keep the greater community of Ualbany safe, on campus. What they do off campus is up to them. And if anyone thinks Benson made this call on his own, I have a bridge to sell you.
  13. There were 40 cases among athletes in 1 day. 1 day. From zero cases. And most were in the Pine Hills off campus houses. In short, when 11% of your athletes test positive less than a week after practices begin, and most of those kids live off campus where they can infect others, including locals, then I’ve got zero issue if the department decided to shut it down.
  14. Anyone blaming Benson (and I often blame him for things) simply is not understanding the background to the decision. This time, he should not shoulder the blame...rather, commended for protecting the kids and staff.
  15. We aren’t going to have a season. School just put out an announcement of the students don’t get their $iena together the campus is effectively closed. Called out: athlete cluster of Covid cases in pine hills. The kids who should be super safe because they have a ton riding on it (seasons$ are acting the stupidest right now.
  16. That's not what the article indicates. It just means those tourneys will be played in a bubble, if agreed. It would be just that our tourney and Siena's tourney would be in the same bubble.
  17. Give it a rest. All of you. Bigger problems facing all of us. I don’t want to come here and read two people over the age of 40 squabbling over bull$iena.
  18. Juwan Green was signed by the Falcons to the practice squad. Jarren Williams was signed by the Giants for their practice squad. Great job by them, and good luck to each.
  19. Looks like Jarren was cut. I’d expect him to be picked up to the practice squad. Lot of big name db cuts on other teams likely impacted the decision.
  20. Dane Pound. Please edit the title. Autocorrect on my phone made it jarred instead of jarren. No disrespect to the man.
  21. I’ve been following this for a couple of weeks now. Been cautiously optimistic. Mencer, unfortunately was injured late last week and was cut Juwan Green was just got by the Falcons, yet reports were that he was on the bubble. With 16 practice squad players this year, he may be picked up by someone or called back by the Falcons. Jarren Williams has had an insane camp after being cut before training camp by the Cardinals. He got picked up by the Giants for the full camp and if he doesn’t make the practice squad it would be an upset. As of 10 minutes ago, it looks like he
