  1. I always like to share this story to people who say that spending money on Athletics is a waste of money, and that money should be spent on grants for students and to pay the professors more, etc... In 2005 I had some issues at my job and I ended up quitting and going on unemployment for a short period. I wasn't fired, but I really couldn't stay due to certain differences. When submitting resumes and doing phone interviews with people from around the country, I found close to no value in the name of my college alma mater. No one (outside of NY) knew WTF "SUNNY Albany" was. I ended up takin
  2. WB will have the same problem I knew he would have last year - giving enough minutes to everyone to keep them happy.
  3. Looks like verbal commits finally updated the roster now that players are actually enrolled in school. No real new information other than confirmation of a few things most people thought but that I do not think were official... http://www.verbalcommits.com/schools/albany Point Guard Reese Williams (Sr.) Evan Singletary (Sr.) David Nichols (Fr.) Shooting Guard RaAnthony Sanders (Sr.) Peter Hooley (Sr.) Jamir Andrews (Ju.) Joe Cremo (Fr.) Small Forward Dallas Ennema (Ju.) Power Forward Mike Rowley (Ju.) Travis Charles (Ju.) Chas Brown (Ju.) Greg Stire (So.) Center Rich
  4. It's a no win situation for UA IMO. Win and it means nothing. God forbid UA loses and it would kill seeding. Hopefully it is just used as a chance to give the bench some PT.
  5. After only making it to a handful of games each season over the last years - Got my first season tix this morning! I am amazed by how many of the best seats are already gone.
  6. According to Verbal Commits - the roster is now: Senior: (3 Scholarships, 1 Walk-On) Singletary Hooley Sanders Wiiliams Junior: (7 Scholarships - 4 Return, 3 Verbal) Green Rowley Peters Ennema Chas Brown (Verbal) Jamir Andrews (Verbal) Travis Charles (Verbal) Sophomore: (1 Scholarship) Stire Freshman: (3 Scholarships - 1 Signed, 2 Verbal) Cremo (Signed) David Nichols (Verbal) Kyle McKinley (Verbal) So by my count, that is 14 Scholarships and a walk-on. I could have sworn we were already at 14 before this signing. Who I am missing? Who besides Robinson left
  7. Think Will can convince this kid? Might be recruiting class of 2018... https://youtu.be/EiomWHNfPBE
  8. If it is a stepping stone that some of you think we need then it should look like this: TUC (Nuetral Site) / TUC (Nuetral Site) / TUC (Nuetral Site) This way the revenue is 100% split and the most amount of fans make it to the game. No more Siena Season pass holders getting the best seats simply because they support a crappy program.
  9. After so many years in a row - this 3 year contract looks like this: SEFCU / TUC / SEFCU (theres your 2-1) Or at a minimum - SEFCU / TUC / TUC Nuetral Site (not in Siena ticket package) Anything less than that is a walk. F $iena. They are not needed on the schedule. I would rather have a loss to a real team than a win to Siena
  10. Anyone know when the rest of the non-conference schedule will be released? I would love to try and make it to a non-conference road game this year, and I have some vacation time to use or lose. Would love to plan a road-trip somewhere for a fun trip with the kids or some friends depending on the dates. That said, I have to start planning my time off schedule for the fall/winter very soon. Some notice would nice.
  11. He has a TON of offers. Guess he would be a great get based on this: http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/travis-atson Offers from: DePaul Vermont Hofstra Richmond Duqusene Texas-Arlington Fairfield UC Santa Barbara Sacred Heart Towson St. Bonaventure Quinnipiac Iona Binghampton Interest from Holy Cross Colgate TCU
  12. Lol I meant Charles not Cooper. Cooper went to another school. Forget which. Green bay maybe?
  13. SUNY as a whole has pushed the whole 2 year school for less money than transfer to one of the 4 year schools for your last 2 years. That is the bread and butter of the community colleges. The problem I see with all the JUCO players is that most of them are athletes first and couldn't get into a 4 year school out of high school because of academics. If we want to grow the program to a bigger conference and get more national recognition we will probably have to get used to a lower quality student - not to take anything away from our kids, as Will Brown has seemed to do a great job (with a fe
  14. Looks like another hard year of Will Brown trying to get everyone the playing time they deserve. I know it's a good problem to have, but the roster looks stacked from Sr. to Fr.
  15. So who is paying their own way next year? Cremo? By my count UA is (-1) scholarship if they are allowed to have 12, and I see 14 players. Sr Peter Hooley (1) Evan Singletary (2) Ray Sanders (3) Reese Williams (walk-on) Jr Richard Peters (4) Tre Green (5) Dallas Ennema (6) Mike Rowley (7) DaShawn Robinson (8) Chas Brown (9) Travis Charles (10) So Greg Stire (11) Fr Joe Cremo (12) Kyle McKinley (13) So either I am wrong and UA can have more than 12, someone will pay their own way, someone else is leaving, or I am missing something. EDIT: I must be the
  16. He could sit out entirely (not play at a JUCO) and come back and have 3 years remaining right? LOL.
  17. Looks like he was very foul prone, leading to the games where he had lower stat/minute totals - unless I am having a brain fart and pf means something other than personal fouls. I could be misreading something as one game he had 6 - technical on foul out? I was focusing more on the Mins per game, relative to fouls. Think that's a better indicator, but certainly if in foul trouble, hurts ability to go get boards Look at most of the games with low minutes played and look at the fouls. He appeared to foul out in 10-12 minutes a few times. Hopefully that is a function of being bigger than ever

  19. Washington is significantly closer to his home as well...
  20. UA should go after this guy. He is transferring and eligible to play immediately as a grad student http://sports.espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/56783/mike-thorne-jr
  21. Verbal Commits cites ESPN's Jeff Goodman as the source though. So while it may be true, the verbal commits page adds no clarification
  22. Hurley Officially hired by Arizona now
  23. Another interesting tidbit I noticed on verbalcommits... Cooper has a scholarship offer from Arkansas-Little Rock. Ray Sanders chose Albany over the same school last year. It looks like we may have interest from Elijah Davis, a 6-4 SF from the Bronx.
  24. Walker has 2 years left I believe. For Cooper - the video says he is class of 2017 - so I would guess he has 2 years remaining? http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/charles-cooper Also on http://www.verbalcommits.com/schools/albanyCooper isn't showing yet, but it shows UA has interest from Randall Clarkson a 5-9 guard, and Kyle Benton a 6-7 SF
