  1. Oh no - That's terrible. I had the same exact break in January 2018 and 16 months later it is still very much touch and go. Granted, I am pushing 30, but I can say that this is a serious blow. Good luck and I hope for a speedy and full recovery
  2. The compensation discussion has been had before so I will re-share the truth, which can be verified from looking in the NYS database. For the last few years the budget for total compensation of the Men's Lacrosse program has been consistent at the 285k level. 2017 for instance: HC: Marr $185,000 DC: Gleason $64,000 (Associate HC) OC: Thomson $46,000 Now, Marr's pay is the same but Merrick got a bump to $76,000, which leaves the compensation looking like: HC: Marr $185,000 OC: Thomson $76,000 (Associate HC) AC: Maloney $_____? At the same budget leve

  4. The #14-ranked UAlbany Men's lacrosse team will take on #10 Syracuse on Saturday February 16 at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse. Before the game, join fellow UAlbany alumni and friends for some refreshments at Sitrus on the Hill in Sheraton University Syracuse Hotel. Pregame event is free but registration is required. https://www.alumni.albany.edu/s/1642/bp19/interior.aspx?sid=1642&gid=2&pgid=2440&cid=6150&ecid=6150&crid=0&calpgid=61&calcid=6108 I will be hosting this event so I hope to see yall there --- I promise we will have plenty of Purple & Yellow Dec
  5. Not all schools are fully funded (i.e 12.6 scholarship level). That is the maximum number a team can extend, but some schools do not have a budget for that many. I recall at one point there was a laxpower thread that listed the believed number of scholarships at each school. Thankfully UA and most schools are fully funded but some of the schools that traditionally have not been very competitive have a lack of scholarships as a very large reason for that. As far as the locker room is concerned, they had a major renovation in 2007 that included very nice wooden lockers for each player, I am
  6. Just a little info on the coaching staff. The biggest reason why we have the staff that we do is the lack of funding for what amounts to the 2nd assistant. I won't get into specifics but you can see what I mean if you look up the salaries on SeeThroughNY. Merrick getting bumped up to what Liam was making essentially made it impossible to attract a seasoned DC. I would have loved to see them get Craig McDonald, who is the current DC at UMass, but I am sure he is making more than 40K which is about all we had to offer. I am very nervous about this team on defense now. I hope Maloney does gr
  7. I wasn't trying to say it was a 1:1 match, I am simply saying Marr tends to err on the side of "He gave us 2 great years". I don't think it has been mentioned here yet but TD wanted to leave after his freshman year, and Marr asked him to stick it out one more year and if he still wasn't happy then he could go. Despite him not being highly recruited and all of that jazz, at the end of the day it wasn't the right fit for the kid. It is no different than a company hiring a kid fresh out of college, giving him a signing bonus, training and all that and the kid leaves because he got a better job of
  8. So is Liam a quitter and all that for going to Siena? As far as welcoming TD back, I think you may be unaware of the program Scott runs. I am not sure if any of yall know this but I left the team during my Junior year due to a very low point in the UA program I dont really need to get into, but UA wasnt always so positive lets leave it at that. Marr and myself were on the worst terms possible as I left when I was a starter on a team that was 0-5 and after i left lost to stony brook 15-0. I ended up playing on St Rose’s first team and after my season ended, I met with Scott and his wife a
  9. @dslyank I can appreciate where you're coming from. It certainly would be nice if he at least explained to the coaching staff why he made the choice he did just for the sake of internal quality review. I have read it here a few times and it is 100% true that if people think that the players at Yale or Johns Hopkins don't engage in the kind of risky behavior that can impact a season they are sadly mistaken. Look at the NCAA survey on substance abuse..... Men's D1 lacrosse leads all sports in all ADMITTED usage of hard drugs, alcohol, and pot. Each school tends to have their own blend of i
  10. I (hopefully) speak for the vast majority of UAlbany Lacrosse Alumni when I say — Thank you, T.D., for two outstanding years of service. The marked improvement of the “rope”/ face-off unit made it possible for all of us to finally answer the question “Can you imagine how good they’d be if they could win a face-off?” I wish you all of the best with everything your future will bring......, I assume you will be reading this in the next couple of days. If you want to play some indoor lacrosse at Shove Park this summer(west genny), get in touch with me on twitter @jpompo6 Good Luck- exce
  11. I am heading to Albany tonight, F'boro by morning. I am pumped. #UA #UKNOW! tsss
  12. spot on. I guarentee DU's wings are very athletic, so it will come down to who has the better chemistry of the two rope units.
  13. Anyone want to carpool? I live in Cuse but could drive to said carpool. Denver doesn't scare me the way they should. People forget they were going to be a 3 seed before losing to GTown.
  14. Okay- taking bets on the percetnage of faceoffs won by TD this weekend? I think it can go anywhere from 0-60%. And I say that very seriously, Baptiste is the best FOGO in the WORLD. he is on team USA. I hope TD schools him though.
  15. DO I REMEMBER THE NOTRE DAME GAME???? I remember exactly where I was when that game was played. I happened to be at a bachelor party on the Thousand Islands and to this day it still kills me that we lost that game. If you recall the sequence when we were clinging to the 1 goal lead and we made 2 saves, then they hit a pipe, and the ball shot all the way up to near midfield on the fly right into the stick of one of our middies and he ran down and scored. I thought that was the break we needed to seal the deal. Then of course there was Ty hitting the goalies facemask from 10 yars with 10 seconds
