  1. That's very positive. If UA and Albany Law ever move closer it'll require student buy in. Now we know 39 Albany Law students would be in favor. Better yet their fellow classmates that are not UA would be less likely to protest their friend and fellow classmate.

  2. I think it comes down to 2 possible FBS games...


    Tennessee vs. Texas A&M and Florida State vs. Miami. The SEC game has the possibility of being a game between 2 ranked teams. FSU vs. Miami is a big time rivalry game and both are ranked in Top 25.

    Florida State lost but the other three won. Tennessee was losing with 10 seconds but a miracle got them a win. Slim odds for us

  3. Update:


    "The University at Albany is expanding academic programs and rebranding its oft-forgotten East Greenbush campus in hopes of raising its national profile as a hub for the health sciences and biotechnology research.


    University officials will unveil the newly renamed Health Sciences Campus and detail their plans at a 10 a.m. news conference scheduled for Monday on the campus.


    While the university foundation has operated the 95-acre site since 1996, many in the region and within the university itself are unaware of the so-called East Campus on the other side of the Hudson River. Located off the Columbia Turnpike in the Rensselaer County town of East Greenbush, the campus shares an entrance and driveway with major pharmaceutical and biotech players like Regeneron and AMRI.


    "Being able to say to say that we are on a health sciences campus, even if it's just a simple change of the name, can go a long way not just in our work but for the region's recognition as a whole," said Phillip Albrecht, whose biotech research company Integrated Tissue Dynamics rents space on the site.


    Biopharmaceutical and technology companies in the region have long noted that their peers in Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., among other places, have a major leg up on them in securing grants, venture funding and work solely because of their location."

  4. Considering the guests this announcement must be beneficial to UAlbany, Albany Law, Albany Med and Albany Pharmacy.


    The announcement has to be important enough for 4 presidents to take the time.


    A new affiliation or college? Can't be just another joint program, right?



    I for one didn't expect UA to still be in the basement so many years after elevating to the CAA.


    For 15 years I've enjoyed watching UA dominate... even beating CAA teams while still in the NEC. Now for the past 5 years we've struggled.


    It seems we didn't get much of a bounce from the upgrade. We seemed to win more with less

    I certainly hope we reach the point where we're in the mix for a playoff spot year in and year out..and hope it's sooner rather than later..but I'm not sure I understand the feeling that we've been in the basement for years now..especially the "past 5 years"???


    2011: 8-4 (1-0 vs. CAA), FCS playoffs

    2012: 9-2 (0-1 vs. CAA)

    2013: 1-11, 0-8 CAA, Ford's last season

    2014: 7-5, 3-5 CAA, ranked in top 25 multiple weeks, Gattuso's first season

    2015: 3-8, 2-6 CAA

    Ok, 3 years. Feels like forever though.

  6. I don't disagree that President Jones handled the false racism charged poorly.


    That said I was excited to see some much necessary expansion of the university in law and engineering.


    My concern is having this position open for 12 to 18 months. Filling it with temps. We need an advocate for UA growth. I feel the churn in this position is why we lag SBU and UB.


    Further every time this position opens there is risk of filling the position with an anti football zealot. May low chance but still scary.

  7. Jones was an excellent president especially in regards to the law school,engineering school and other additions.


    My main concern is athletics. He was pro athletics and pro football. I hope our luck doesn't run out and we get a nut job like Hofstra or BU got that was hostile to athletics.


    I wish we could find stability.

  8. All that money couldn't buy them half the success that we've had. Sounds like 10 million in wasted money to me. Good for them!

    No disrespect but your missing the point. Success on the field or not how can two SUNY Centers in the same conference have such a disparity? ("income inequality" to quote my lazy communist friends)


    $29M Stony Brook

    $18M Albany

  9. I was reading an article on Idaho dropping down to FCS. Idaho's budget is $19M.


    How is it Stony Brook has a budget of $29M? That's +$10M over Albany. Most of that $10M advantage is school support. Ticket sales, student fees are basically the same. The school is kicking in millions more
