  1. The young men on this team are all good atheletes. But, except for a few, they are not atheletic enough to compete at this level. You can teach players a lot of things but you cannot teach them to run faster, be more agile orhave better hand eye coordination.
  2. I'm a glass is half full type of guy. I'm disappointed with the transfers and McKinley backing out. Given the program's success and positive high profile I think we may get a few guys who would normally be beyond our reach.
  3. If a new arena could pay for itself it would be easy. Fill the SEFCU for every men's and women's basketball games and then find other events which would fill the arena with paying fans and you could justify spending the money. I'm not a fan of boxing or mma but these events would fill a 5000 seat arena. At $45 bucks a head your talking serious money.
  4. Mark Benson knows what he's doing. UAlbany gear is being promoted on several local web sites. Who doesn't love a cool tee shirt or hat? The idea is to get lots of people, even if they are not alums, to identify with UAlbany. Slowly but surely a lot of capital region people are going to think of the Great Danes as their team. Now, we need some break through wins from our Football and Basketball teams.
  5. If Coach Brown is in the state retirement system that will be a huge factor in the financial part of his decision. Based upon his salary his annual fixed retirement will be more than $175,000. In order to receive that benefit from a 401K he will have to save more than 4 million dollars. I think he is being pulled by the idea of being on a bigger stage. If he passes this up he may not have another chance. UAlbany will have lots of talent looking to be the men's head coach. The UA program is much bigger than one man or woman.
  6. As a fan I cannot imagine a better year than this one. Watching the men ane women play helped me get through this brutal winter. I hope coaches Abe and Brown stay. They are more than great coaches, they are great people. The kind of people that I would want mentoring my children.
  7. That's what Gary Gilmore said just before he faced a firing squad.
  8. We should remember that it was Lee McElroy who lead the way for where UAlbany athletics is today. Mark Benson is the man who is taking the program to the next level. I am so impressed by Mark's work. He really has the Capital Region beginning to invest emotionally into the Great Danes. Emotional investment comes before financial investment. Mark, keep up the good work.
  9. There is nowhere for UA to move up to. The emphasis should be on improving America East.
  10. Why not a home and home with Buffalo in place of Siena?
  11. The entire team deserves a big cheer. Especially our big guys, Peters, M. Rowley and Stire who did a heck of of job with Warney.
  12. Hollywood!!! The SBU fans are still sitting in stunned disbelief.
  13. I think the Price Chopper is actually rebranding as Market 32.
  14. Neil and Jane Golub were at the women's game yesterday. We know they are very community minded. Perhaps the SEFCU is going to become the 47?
