  1. 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
  2. Is there any plan to play the home games at Fallon Field? I'm just curious why they have a lacrosse only stadium and then don't even play games on it.
  3. Get to the playoffs, keep that Golden Apple. Does the Across The Street Pub usually show UAlbany football games? Or do they refuse to get FloSports as well?
  4. Rutgers Using Alcohol Sales to Fund Coach Buyout. I know this is satire, but I think this is a great idea for our coaching situation.
  5. UAlbany playing South Carolina right now on the ESPN SEC Network, or you can watch it on the Watch ESPN app.
  6. Meanwhile, the starting quarterback for Ohio State gets arrested for drunk driving while underage and only gets suspended for one game. I guess throwing some pot out of a dorm room window is just more dangerous and irresponsible then driving drunk.
  7. University at Albany football wide receiver Josh Gontarek was arrested Monday afternoon after he threw marijuana out of a window of a residence hall on campus, according to the police report obtained today. UAlbany football coach Greg Gattuso suspended Gontarek indefinitely on Tuesday. "University police found Gontarek in possession of 10.2 aggregate grams of marijuana, which he tried to conceal by throwing it out of the window, the report said. Gontarek was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation, and conceal/alter/destroy physical evidence, a Class E felony"
  8. Um no. Grontarek is the a-hole here.I stand by my statement. Arresting a kid and potentially ruining his life over pot is bull$iena. Cops could have exercised some discretion in the matter. Using pot should be treated like a traffic offense. Pay a large fine so you dont do it again. End of story. This is the point I'm trying to make. In New York a UPM should only result in a civil fine, like a traffic ticket. It's a $100 ticket. It's not a criminal offense. That's why I'm confused as to why the university police are arresting a student on campus for a violation, which leads to me beli
  9. It would be interesting to see what the circumstances of the arrest were. Unlawful possession of marijuana is not considered a crime, but a civil violation in this state. The evidence tampering sounds like the more serious allegation.
  10. In the states. Where I'm from (eastern Europe) and most of the rest of the world, Soccer is King (with a capital K) and played by kids with no shoes. All you need is a ball. It's the cheapest of all sports (to put together a game). It's not even close. But I wouldn't get anywhere near calling it "America's game" as UAlbany09 said. America's games are football and baseball and to a lesser extent basketball. Hockey, Soccer, etc. don't even compare. Yes they have decent leagues, but over-all business money making wise? NFL and MLB rule the roost by a wide margin. The NFL is an $11B business.
  11. Just a bunch of soccer moms... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s50SvZm9jQE Soccer is America's game. UMBC was nationally ranked in the Top 5 this year so there is no reason why UAlbany can't be at that level. Getting rid of soccer would be a mistake.
  12. It's great that the America East has a ranked team in soccer. Maybe Albany will be there one day.
  13. "Pretty much everything I have said and claimed about Keeler, can probably be confirmed by a few members on this board. Am I speaking a lie when I say there have been multiple 6 loss seasons, no playoffs for 7 out of 11 years, failures in recruiting that have significantly hurt the football program? Am I making up the fact that high school coaches didn't want to send their players to Delaware because of him? Am I lying by saying that he ran players out of the program and gave up on them without giving them a chance to develop? Did he not continuously blame his players for losses? Or am I just
