  1. These uniforms make no sense. Unless we were acquired by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
  2. Cornell now has a cluster of 39. Of those, 36 are student athletes.
  3. 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.
  4. Just got a sneak peek at the new US News rankings for 2021: Albany is at 160—tied with Hofstra, Mercer, UMBC, and others. One spot ahead of Adelphi. Binghamton, Buffalo, and SBU are all tied (oddly) at 88—right behind Michigan St, NC State, and others. When I was applying to schools in the 90s, long before the Nanotech debacle, Albany was #2 with a bullet, right behind Binghamton as the best SUNY. What happened? What can we do—or are we doing—to get some mojo back? Back in the day, we felt like we were competing (academically) with UMass and Maryland—not Hofstra and Adelphi. I
  5. looks great. i vote for the purple-
  6. Big 10 officially postpones football... https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/11/sports/ncaafootball/big-ten-postpones-football-season.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
  7. not official, but getting close... https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/bigten/2020/08/10/big-ten-votes-against-college-football-season-due-coivd-concerns/3332196001/
  8. Since this is a broooooad forum, let's wish a happy birthday to the Best Dane Since Hamlet, who, ironically, is technically the 4th best dane since Hamlet.
  9. Also, his eyebrows look like lightning bolts. Might need a disclaimer for those.
  10. Original Damien had a similar stare.
  11. I kind of like it. I was in some meetings for a D-3 sports rebrand, and the priority these days is a mascot that is intimidating/fierce, so this is timely. And the font feels playfully 1980's futuristic, which kind of offsets the angry dog. I mostly dig it. And the state image is great for those who wonder where Albany is. Plus, the star reminds them that we're the capitol of one of the country's biggest states.
  12. Fwiw- I'm glad Trump finally came around to the consensus of world experts... and it seems he does have some influence after all. Just a few hours after his tweet last night, Winn-Dixie made mask-wearing mandatory in all stores.
  13. these teasers are some of the cooler marketing efforts I've ever seen from UA-
  14. It's a fair point that young people are gonna do what they do...but if you think the notion "even Trump says it's BS" doesn't have some effect on young people, but also on their parents, grandparents, and tons of others who can safely say "if the president doesn't do it, why should I," then you are basically saying the president is a meaningless figure. And we know from polling that many folks take their cue from him. Regardless of mistakes, Fauci corrected any question about masks around Memorial Day. When the numbers were still moving in a decent direction. I truly hope no one you
  15. This conversation is a vicious cycle, but fwiw, absolutely Trump influenced folks when he continued for months to say that masks were unnecessary. There was a news report at a beach in Alabama where numerous young people interviewed said they're skipping the mask because "even Trump" knows it's BS." Several of those college students then got the virus not long after. And how many passed it on to their parents or grandparents? Now multiply that by many thousands across the country who just needed the smallest reason-—let alone a constant one from the leader of the free world and his VP--to deci
  16. It's small, but they have a damn nice arena!
  17. That ledge was so NOT two stories. It was like 7 feet!
  18. I enjoy looking at this site, even some of the bickering. I don't post much, but I find the comments interesting and helpful. Since athletics are cancelled for who knows how long, I wonder if folks might want to keep conversations going in one form or another—as a replacement distraction. One idea could be to talk about random UAlbany memories. I remember the blizzard of 1993, which dumped about 27 inches on the city throughout one night. I was living on State quad, and we went out the next morning and played football in it, even though the snow was up to our knees and we were basically a
  19. Thanks, Click. Amazing that this is being debated while the smartest scientists in the world are calling urgently for a rapid response.
  20. This page offers a video tour and renderings: https://www.binghamton.edu/baseball-complex/. It looks insane, but I can't imagine it not being severely underused. And here's an article mocking the indulgence...
  21. Was just at Princeton stadium and saw they put up a bubble on their football field after the season ended. Not sure if this is more cost efficient, but maybe an option...
  22. Oof... They need someone to edit. A quick look at two pages shows they posted the same photo twice...on each page... https://ualbanysports.com/sports/2011/8/2/205237082.aspx https://ualbanysports.com/sports/2011/8/1/205235596.aspx
  23. I know this is off-topic, but maybe being a Jeopardy category tonight will bring us some luck against the Johnnies.
