  1. with 3 national championship wins in the past 8 years, i think the ACC is close to top tier for football as well.
  2. We're at #172 now, down from 160 last year. I say it every year but it's a shame the school can't figure out a way to reverse this trajectory. Big drop from even 10 years ago, let alone from the 1990s, when we competed with Binghamton for best SUNY. They're #83 now; SBU and Buffalo are tied at #93. This doesn't help us in sports either, especially in lacrosse where we compete with Virginia, Yale, and Hopkins for recruits.
  3. As someone who attended when UA was Division 3--and did some radio color commentary for games--it never fails to amaze me to see a school like Kentucky on our schedule.
  4. Yes, my question was why it might appeal to him to take the reins at a small D3 school after decades in D1. Rick Pitino was somewhat untouchable after his scandal, and yet Iona is still D1. I was asking to see if anyone on the board has insider knowledge.
  5. Unfortunately, this sounds right to me. And considering the professional leagues pay so low, it'll be harder and harder to imagine that top recruits would choose to have Albany on their resume over Virginia, Georgetown, UNC, etc.
  6. Just downloaded onto an iPhone and must say it looks great and the UX is solid. But they need to improve their success rate.
  7. wonder why it was so back and forth though. He went from a top tier program like Texas A&M to Cornell, and then again from Georgia to Canisus...but maybe that's common if the coach you play under gets let go?
  8. yes, i saw the new SBU indoor facility (just from outside) and it's a pretty cool structure. Definitely looks impressive to prospective football recruits. We need that.
  9. Wonder if they could use this as an excuse to totally enhance rather than just restore it.
  10. These uniforms make no sense. Unless we were acquired by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
  11. Cornell now has a cluster of 39. Of those, 36 are student athletes.
  12. Of course, every school studies these metrics and aims to improve them not just for rankings purposes but also for student/faculty recruitment and retention. The point is, Albany is not succeeding in any of these areas, at least in relation to its peers. Many years ago, I believe we topped out around a ranking of 120, and I was hopeful we'd crack the top 100. Northeastern U., as an example, used to be below us but has skyrocketed to #49. But at this rate, we're heading closer to the third tier rather than the first. This is more disappointing than anything we do/don't achieve in sports.
