  1. They are a good passionate bunch, I love talking smack with them. But they are gona probably pounce all over you.
  2. I feel the same way. And not addressing the actual comments from the letters, I was actually surprised (you would think that I might have learned not to be by now) that the TU printed them...let alone two of them. I don't have a problem at all with rebutal letters to the editor, but these were more of a complaining/whinning type as opposed to relaltively well thought out letters that newspapers tend to print. Sort of surprised me. 13748[/snapback] I am yet to be surprised by the "BS" the TU continues to publish. 13749[/snapback] danefan, Those letters were a reb
  3. Patch, Just because a team doesn’t play well or doesn’t have the players does not excuse them from being terrible. The growing pains that we were experiencing in our first few seasons were to be expected. But when talking about a program or club one must take into account the entire body of work. Look at the Atlanta or Charlotte in the NBA, they are terrible teams but they are going through necessary growing pains just like UA did at their level. I have made your exact point on the Siena board a million times. Siena fans need to realize that they are no longer the only D1 team in
  4. I appreciate the kind words. If I could just add one more thing to my prior post…..I said that our credibility suffers when we look like a bunch of cool-aid drinking homers what I forgot to mention is that it’s exactly how I see many of the posters on the Siena board. And I don’t want us (UA fans) to be like them. Because that’s exactly what many over there are, cool-aid drinking homers.
  5. I think one major reason why the fans here on this forum have reacted the way we do is because we remember the bad years. A record of 5-23 was not great, but the program and its fans persevered. We handled our adversity quite well. Part of the reason for our attitude was the strong belief that our program would move solidly forward because of our coach who was learning the ropes and because of the information we had on incoming recruits. Part of the reason was just our nature. Two years ago you did not find nasty attacks against Brown or the players on this board. We all knew what to expec
  6. Patch, No question that the last two season have been relatively good/great for UA and terrible/surprisingly good for Siena. But take that RPI and blow it out to 7 season or even 5. The picture changes dramatically. Hence my point that we need to be better then them consistently in order to rise to the top on the local hoops scene. I can’t believe that I’m defending Siena, and I’m the guy who wants to crush them when we play them. 13736[/snapback] You cant justify blowing out the 5-7 year range. We were essentially a DII team playing DI games on the road. Right now is

  8. Guys, I’ve had numerous arguments with Siena fans on their board, as much as I love UA, their win over Stanford was more significant then our loss to UCONN. Any one who doesn’t see it that way has to be a major homer. Any team that makes it out of the first round of the NCAA especially after being a huge underdog has to be a significant accomplishment. With that being said, I agree that there are allot of whiner on the Siena side. As far as the local college hoops scene they are still the top dog. The gap might be closing but they are still a more accomplished team then we are, after
  9. I’m intrigued. Would he be coming in as a junior or sophomore?
  10. Haha, I thought the same thing when I read the article. They've been black probably before Kermit ever heard of UAlbany. And Tony was even a student here up to no more than 2 years ago. Way to identify yourself as a bandwagoner Tony...lol. I personally don't mind them. Would rather have gold as home and black w/ purple trim for away than white for home and purple for away. 13663[/snapback] Anything but purple. I love the black uni's!
  11. Any idea where Reid Anderson is? The higher the number the better?
  12. Man we have awsome size for the next few years. But it's not just size they are skilled big men. Should be fun to watch. When is the earliest we can see the team practice/play?
  13. No I belive the county built the Pepsi. I'm kind of new to the college ball scene but is this rivalry between Seina and Albany the hottest it's ever been? Can you guys imagine the Pepsi next year? I mean I want them to win every game except for the game against us. They are a local team and cheer for them when they aren't playing us. But I wouldn't mind if we stuck it to em good next year.
  14. Nope, I am sure I also was part of pissing them off and I'll let someone else correct their errors today. Monday was enough when one of their fans got me going with some ridiculous comparison of how Albany would do against Marist, Manhattan and Iona as opposed to Siena who would win 3 out of 5 vs. those 3 schools except for the FACT they lost 5 out of 6. I pointed out that Albany has beaten Siena more recently than Siena has had a winning record vs Marist, Manhattan and Iona. And of coarse they like to start their crap on taxpayer built arenas. Well enough on them. 13639[/snapback]
  15. It's been a busy day there today. Mostly my doing I fear!
  16. Go read the Siena board, if its any indication it's a little hot right now. It's all great, I love it.
  17. Patch- So many questions and so much time to answer them all. I think we need an off season thread for each player. I'd like to take a crack at answering all of these at some point. Lets start easy since I need to get some work done today. #9. Will Bauman surprise us? I'm afraid there will be no surprises here. Bauman is a point guard and is currently sitting behind Jamar, Lillis, Iati and potentially Knight for playing time. I do not see him working his way into the regular rotation in 06/07. Early on in his freshman year, we were losing late in a game at home and nee
  18. I think he stayes. No one leaves school early to play in Europe, if kids leave early they are going to the NBA.
  19. Who cares that they don't know how many seaons we've been D1
  20. I was when I heard him Championing Browns cause.
  21. Any word? I'm at work and don't know whats going on.
  22. It would be awsome if someone carried it live!
