  1. Sideline observation of Sussman: when he spits on the sideline he quickly rubs it clean with his foot.... you are welcome. Any word on if he's been able to hit the ground with his spit? Multi-tasking.... meant Brunson again....

  3. Bernard Clark just scared the crap out of me when screaming for a substitute to "Get his butt over here.".... dude is still intense!
  4. That's a little crazy they have a bio up...and they don't even mention that she was the National POY?
  5. Just to stir the pot on this one a little, the following is from a tweet from 8/22: "HC Joanna McNamee University of Albany America East Conference looking for home game Dec 12,2016. Would consider D2 possibilities." Is it a consolation that the women's team will only "slum down" to the D2 level???
  6. I don't really know why but I was thinking of our UA field hockey team and I didn't see any board discussion for this season. Of note: *Pre-season #9 in the country. *Former national player of the year Paula Heuser's last year. *Stand-out goaltender Maxi Primus's last year. *A new highly regarded German defensive recruit bringing the number of German players to four, including improving sophomore middie Frederike Helmke. *3-0 start to the year with wins against Hofstra, Bryant, and Dartmouth. *Tough recent loss to Penn State, who was pre-season #18 but is now #1 in RPI. *Tough conference schedule with a strong Maine team to play, an improved New Hampshire team, and a potential championship game on the west coast this year against potentially Stanford or Cal (And I know it's field hockey, but I get a major kick out of being in any conference with these two programs. One of my good buddies has an advanced degree from Stanford, and field hockey might be the only area to which I can claim dominance (even if it is not the result of direct participation!) Oh, yeah, and also of note is that Phil Sykes somehow snuck the 2015 HS National Player of the Year onto this year's roster!...Dana Bozek. No announcement of signing her NLOI, and not even announced until four games into the season, but she has already played in three games and started two, while registering two shots and taking four corners. I don't know how the national POY was available, but she looks like a great get, and she stays in New York and we keep another "hot-shot" high school recruit from going to Syracuse (although I don't know if they even offered!) http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=15800&ATCLID=211160796&KEY= UA Pollyanna time again! A special thank you to the UB Bulls for allowing themselves to be outplayed last Friday, temporarily restoring my hope in this athletic program's growth and direction! With so many suspensions of good players I feared we could be over-prioritizing character, but maybe that wasn't the right line of thinking!
  7. Women's team just received a verbal from 5'11" SF Dejah Williams from Imhotep in Philadelphia. Her teammate, Sierra DaCosta, is a freshman at Hartford this year.
  8. People are putting a lot of money on UA. Line last night was UA getting 27 points. Now they are a 21 point underdog. I love me some UA but staying within 21 could be tough.
  9. Crazy times. 4 CAA team are playing right now. BTW, UA is a 27 point betting underdog tomorrow night.
  10. Huge loss for them...for those that don't know, Hartford originally refused to grant him a release. Saban style!
  11. More Fall sports news: Yesterday field hockey was unanimously picked to finish first to win the East Division (Stanford, Cal, Pacific, and UC Davis are in the West Division.) Today volleyball was picked to win the conference for the first time since 2013. Women's cross country is improved, and will likely compete for a championship. Football and men's cross country need some help!
  12. Claxton 3rd in her heat in 56.40!...secures the third qualifying slot in her heat.
  13. Welp, I guess it's not a live event; they are only adding segments to their website at specific times: http://caasports.com/news/2016/8/15/FB_0815160253.aspx
  14. CAA's preview of the team is at 11AM this morning.... caafootball.com
  15. Last year at this time both the men's and women's soccer teams had never won a regular season conference title or gone to the NCAA tournament. Last season the men won a regular season championship and the women won a bid to the NCAAs. Now both teams have been picked first in the pre-season polls for the 2016 season.
  16. A little O/T but Delaware agreed to a home and home with North Dakota State for 2018 and 2019.
  17. "This guy here is dead" "cross him off then" LMAO I was going to go there but I got gun-shy.
