  1. Seriously. It is times like that when I take a pause and think "Damn, that's a pretty big jump in 15 years of D1."
  2. I saw new uniforms when I was looking at the women's soccer roster, and I thought it looked like a rebranding: http://www.ualbanysports.com/SportSelect.dbml?&DB_OEM_ID=15800&SPID=8001&SPSID=70305 If the football uniforms are as well designed I think it is a nice improvement.
  3. Recruits for T&F are listed: http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=210273103&DB_OEM_ID=15800 Smaller class than usual, but some impressive times and/or distances. One thing I am surprised by is the lack of distance recruits...one total for both genders. How does a school with such a rich T&F tradition have such a difficult time getting distance runners? (Especially being in a good recruiting area for it.)
  4. Last year's Final Four team released their list of 2015 recruits: http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=210264791&DB_OEM_ID=15800 One German in the class; with the apparent loss of Pahila Arnold the team is now back to three.
  5. 2016 recruiting: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/recruiting-insider/wp/2015/07/23/for-patuxent-wr-greg-leonard-the-summer-camp-trail-spans-far-and-wide/ WR ponying up $60 to have Gattuso and staff watch him in camp...I don't think that was happening before??
  6. No good place to put this, but in my never-ending quest to find a memorable burger I stumbled upon a TU article with a mention of the Across the Street Pub. There is some very nice UA representation there: http://www.timesunion.com/best_of_2015/article/Best-of-the-Capital-Region-2015-Burgers-6397624.php#photo-6049924
  7. Schedule released: http://www.ualbanysports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=210226593&DB_OEM_ID=15800 After last year's 9-0 drubbing of LCC they are no longer on the schedule.
  8. I was taking more issue with the lack of originality than with the show...I agree that fist-fighting a chicken is pretty funny...
  9. Classic...well, everything except for The Family Guy "Surfin Bird" (Bird is the Word) similarity.
  10. 1) TJC might be quick in getting up court, but I don't see her having a quick release on a jump-shot. 2) I didn't really recall Julie expanding her range, and while she may have added more of a mid-range game, her 3-point numbers don't show a dramatic difference. Still, in her senior year she was 4-17 from 3-pt. range, which was an increase from one attempt in her junior year, so I concede that point! 3) Agreed about Heather. The Forster family seems committed to this university, and you have to appreciate the dedication they have exhibited so far. 4) While I agree Duke had great size, I think there is likely to be some difference between a 4-year ACC 6-footer and a two-year AE 6-footer, especially in terms of coordination and quickness. Here's to getting 5 in a row...good to see Coach Abe is sticking around!
  11. I couldn't agree more that the team needs some shooters, but she is listed at 6'1", and a forward... Where are the 5'8"-5'9" shooting guards? She could play the 3, let the guards drive and kick to her. I guess I am just worried about her quickness. Other than Shereesa how many fast 6-footers does women's basketball (particularly at this level) produce?

  13. Overtime, 10-10. A UAlbany lacrosse team is overdue to win one of these tight battles.
  14. UA is not the only school with streaming issues...
  15. Odd that I haven't seen "Accountant Bob" offering any quotes to the TImes Union. Then again, he may be offering them, but the Times Union might not be publishing them!
  16. I am not going to try to explain this (too much) to the less degenerative types, but there are gambling lines for the women's game today! Money Line: (Straight up, who wins.) UAlbany -110 (Bet $110 to win $100) UPenn -120 (Bet $120 to win $100, making UPenn a very slight (in gambling terms, the slightest, actually) favorite. Point spreads: (Only two that I could find.) UPenn -1.5: +155 UAlbany +1.5: -185 Over/Under (for combined number of goals scored): 18.5 If I could have gotten UAlbany with the -1.5 instead of the +1.5, I would have jumped on it!
  17. I sat in the old football bleachers for a couple of hours on Saturday after the men's lacrosse championship game, and I must say that although University Field did not provide a very good vantage point for football, it did for track and field. If I focused just hard enough I could still picture the gridiron action.
  18. St. George, Utah is a really nice place to spend a weekend. I hope they get some extra time there. Zion!
  19. It looks like this could be the beginning of another UAlbany run of championships. They graduate one senior (who didn't tee off in the championships, and who I think graduated in the fall), and their only signed recruit for next year averaged a 76 last year in high school. With the overall MAAC (blech!) champion being a freshman from UA, that's one more program in good shape... In such good shape I won't even take a potshot at the status of the baseball program!
  20. LCC with the early troubles falling into 3rd place, 13 shots off the pace. Albany now in the lead by 12 strokes over second place Quinnipiac. Still a lot of golf to go.
  21. Hence the qualifier. UAlbany signed four four-year players in November 2013 and all of them are gone by April 2015.
  22. And that officially closes the book on the November 2013 signing class. All four year players. All gone. NOT GREG STIRE SO STIRE WAS A MAY SIGNEE
