  1. If Benson is as bad as most are saying on this Board, it will be Bryant Stith 8 year assistant at Old Dominion.
  2. We entered the weekend with 10 games, one other team had 12 and the rest 14. We lost two starters last week, two reserves this week. We were terrible today BUT you simply have to suck it up and play well tomorrow and see where you land. Except for UMBC which we played close both games we have not lost twice on a weekend. It is One and Done Time. Be Positive!
  3. Women are very young--one Senior, two Juniors and the rest are Freshman & Sophs--future looks OK!!
  4. We have just finished game 3. Normally we would be at least game 8. A lot of new players and they seem to be good picks. However in the 2nd half they seem to develop a HS intramural mentality--watch me I am going to win the game--and they can't. Once we get Healy, Rizzuto, Huthinson and Lulka to meld in with Anderson, Kelly, Horton and Taylor we will be fine. UMBC is very, very good. I hope for a split at Vermont and then run the table with a few blips
  5. Transfers look good!! Freshmen look very good!! Loss of Stokes hurts but Izzy is a talent to watch!!
  6. I have almost the exact experience as dslyank--calls, e-mails with the only response "we are making a change soon" but it never happens only Will Brown at Niagara??
  7. Mass punishment never works i.e. fair. Find students who violated, punish them, but not the team(s)! Administrators are notorious for not knowing how to discipline rule breaking athletes.
  8. #3,6 & 7 are all based on increasing the endowment. Remember UA started as a college for teachers. UB, Binghamton were private colleges with a variety of degrees. SBU started much later, is on Long Island which demands high pay and results in ability to give. As a retired teacher I donate in the 4 figures but not all the old-timers can do that. When those who graduated with non-teaching degrees become older maybe they can build up the endowment. UA is indeed a young University and we suffer for it.
  9. I agree with Dane Pound!! The last political thread was PAINFUL!!
  10. I thought this thread was "2020 A Look Ahead"---not a thread for political loonies!!
  11. I also plan to make my GDAC contribution. Waiting to see a plan for ticket holders---at 80+ I may be dumb but hopefully not stupid.
  12. I hope no one leaves. We have plenty of spots to fill without people leaving. The previous comments seem to be all based on scoring. Defense is also important---deSousa had injuries and illness but still was asked to guard one of the opponents best scorers which probably had an effect on his offensive energy. Rizutto was probably the best defender of the three guards and had a very slow offensive start but came back at the end. We'll be fine --keep the players and fill those 4 open spots.
  13. Live by the 3, die by the three--todays game is boring--jack up 30 threes--make 5 and you're going to lose. We may have some decent BIGS but we will never know--they get the ball so seldom they fumble it or are totally confused. Maybe we could use an assistant that wasn't a guard?
  14. We need another guard?? We started 4 guards the last two games and had 42 turnovers. We just need someone who values the ball and realizes there are four team mates on the court.
