  1. Regarding Profit Sharing My understanding is that UA gets to keep the proceeds from it's ticket sales and that's it. I don't think they sell many tickets - most are given out to students. I think last year they allocated 1500 per quad. Also, Siena needs to continue the series as much as UA in order to keep their average attendance up.
  2. I'm going to assume that Brown will start Wyatt because he is an upperclassman. How many games until Todd Martin becomes the starter and Wyatt goes to the bench - my guess is 3 games.
  3. Attendance: I think UA can average over 2500 fans per game this year. Assuming the weather holds up for homecoming against Stony Brook, I think this may be a very good attendance year. Brown - 3700 Sacred Heart - 1800 St Peters - 1500 hall of fame Stony Brook - 5000 - homecoming Robert Morris - 1000 - senior day
  4. A few thoughts: Albany should be able to dominate at this level of football based on their size on the offensive and defensive lines. Where Albany and most of the NEC and MAAC will struggle is speed on defense - secondary and Linebackers, but within the conference no team has the talent to exploit that. Kudos to Coach Ford for bulking up the linemen - you can improve the players strength and technique but you can't teach speed (you need scholarships for that). Sciarra and Delgado need to get to where Roeder was a year ago - nothing spectacular but he never hurt the team. Throw the ball away instead of taking a big loss on a sack, avoiding the interception. If they do those things, UA will win the NEC. Last thought, you have to take these next two weeks (against much weaker opponents ) and work on diversifying the offense - you can't run 60 times against Stony Brook and Monmouth as they are great defenses that will put 8 men in the box. UA needs to have a couple of slants or option passes just to keep the defense honest.
