  1. Hmmm, win the face-off battle and you win games. What a great idea, lol. Why didn't they think of that sooner. But now we need to break the four game losing streak vs UVM and it starts at the face-off X.
  2. UVM has had a solid Men's basketball team for the past 20 years so I can see why UA has struggled to win regularly versus them. But come on, UVM lax does not have the level of success UA has has the past 20 years in lax and we now have lost 4 straight to them. Not acceptable.
  3. According to a IL pre-draft article, they predicted him going in the 4th round I believe to the Chaos saying in the right offense he would thrive.
  4. They sure did have a JV team in the seventies cause I tried out my sophomore year and they cut me in the 2nd round of cuts 😞. I was trying for the shooting guard position cause I was a good shooter, not so great at ball handling back then but during the tryouts, guys kept passing ball to me to bring up court I think cause they didn't want to make mistakes and show any weaknesses. Guess they proved mine with my mediocre handle 😝 and they cut me.
  5. 42 years for me, 1979, Winston Royal was the star guard. Of course some of our fellow posters were not even born yet 😳😳.
  6. Holy crap, more bad UA sports news. If this came out tomorrow, I would chalk it up to an April Fools Day joke.
  7. Towson from the CAA, another one bid league. I know he did not have the resume of Cremo or Nichols to get a bench role on a Power 5 team, but Towson was 4 and 14 this season, 2nd to last in CAA. He will not sniff a tourney bid next season that's for sure. Odd choice or maybe the only one?
  8. I haven't watched any games, just followed on Gamecast but I get the impression JUC is not as sharp and dominate as last season. Not having a downfield threat like Green doesn't help, shotty protection from the O-line, and probably the biggest issue is all the film defensive coordinators have on him from last year including 2 NCAA playoff games. They have figured how to defend him and make him uncomforable. Up to him and the coaching staff to make adjustments or it's a .500 season at best.
  9. Obviously Bing is not that good. We still won handily with 18 turnovers and only 13 for 29 in face-offs, really? That is still a work in progress.
  10. Hofstra moved Milhalek to special consuel position in the athletic dept. Last year he won the CAA tourney and was going dancing until Covid. Did very well there but I would guess he was burned out and they agreed to help him out to reduce the time and stress of a MBB head coach.
  11. That blistering 14% from three this season has me salivating at what he can bring, lol. Will see if he comes. Only one year older than Amica so you would think they know each other from the Cuse area and may have played each other.
  12. I agree but the most important position is the point guard. If CJ Kelly can come back and Will Amica stays and learns from him and plays 15-20 min a game, then we are set at PG for several years. That will help the new coach immensely.
  13. I wondered that also, credits transferring, different majors and requirements at each school, etc. Previously when you had to sit out a year from D1 to D1, you can catch up academically. Student-athletes these days don't have any loyalty and love to a school and don't care if they attend 3 or 4 schools. For me, once I accepted UA as my school, I was a Great Dane for life, never considering transferring even when I did not get in the business school for accounting. Changed major and stayed. Think it helped that I stayed on campus all 4 years on Dutch Quad to get the full college experience
