    This is a <10 win (for the whole season) team folks. No sugar coating. I would consider it a success if we get 10-12 wins and a smashing success if we are .500.

    Warren Nolan site currently has Albany predicted to be 1-15 in the AE with Binghamton also being 1-15. So no wins except vs each other. A total of 2 d1 wins this season. That might be a little harsh, but from what I saw so far much closer to reality than a 500 or better league record and sadly with a chance to lose 24 or more games. At least they do have 1 win so they can't match LCC (0-24, .000) record in patsos last season 

    They have to improve a lot to just be in games for the whole 40 minutes . Whether our second year coach has it in him to get the team to improve remains to be seen. While I hope so, I am not optimistic at this point. 

     Benson wanted his own man to be the basketball coach so the results so far speak very poorly on Benson as well.

    Albany out hustled, out played and out coached .... by a team that did not receive much respect in their conference preseason poll.

    You can say it 

    A) By a middle of the pack maac team. 

    B. lowly maac team

    Either way Albany hasn't shown they can beat teams in the last 2 seasons other than the shocking result last season against BC

    Mark is just looking for ways to dig deeper in our pockets.

    Obviously. But I have a certain budget for my games . 

    And if the way they have run football is the example, I don't think I will have to worry about there not being a seat for me. 

    If I am wrong on my assumption , there will always be hockey to see December and January and college baseball and lacrosse starting in February.

    Weather today .... Sunny ... temperatures in the low fifties at game time to mid-fifties by end of game ...not a cloud in sight in Southern Saratoga County ... the weather for home games has been great this fall ... still some great foliage color on and the area surrounding the campus 


    Lows 50's. That was the score at the end of the 3rd quarter. Temperature was still in the 60's at that point. Actually felt quite warm and it certainly looked like at least one sea clowns fan on the visitor stands was hot under the collar. 😁

    THought the same thing. It's actually very disappointing and teaches young men nothing.  Look, we don't know what went down but this....this is a hollow punishment.  

    The biggest statement on the punishment is that it is more punishment to have to see the &#036;ienaheads than to serve in order. The rest of the oppenents including exhibitions in the suspension is weak. Certainly seems likely a Benson decision

    Was the travel budget for exhibition games cut to nothing? ... I hope the play a couple D1 schools ... from other comments ... sounds like they could use a higher competition.

    Unless the NCAA changed the rules, you could have closed "secret" scrimmages against D1 schools or open exhibition games vs lower division teams before the official start of the season.
