  1. Temple grad transfer Dre Perry tells me that he has committed to Albany. Should be a big factor in the America East. -Jon Rothstein
  2. I agree he is a solid player. But not the favorite. He will be a solid starter and a good player in our conference. No real guessing about that. I think DK can and will get these guys. (Fully understand 3 weeks) I was just simply saying these are guys we should shoot for. Good pick up for a program that seems to be on the way up again.
  3. Stony Brook has landed FDU transfer Jahlil Jenkins - who averaged 16.8 points per game this past season. Huge pickup for Geno Ford & The Brook. -Jeff Goodman For those wondering these are the type recruits I would like to see us get. I understand Stony Brook has some advantages but not that that much more. DK as a recruiter should be able to bring in these type of guys (I hope).
  4. It was nice . Nothing crazy stated. I asked a question about how to get more fans in the building. Coaches response was that he and his staff are going to try very hard to do that. Engage students and people in the community. They have several ideas. He also addressed the siena game and it sounds like he knew they needed to come here as well. Nothing else really stood out. Very well spoken and engaging. Look forward to the season.
  5. If this was posted I apologize. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/hoop-heads/id1384802639?i=1000515760637 It's a podcast where they are going to follow Coach Killings and Albany the entire year. It was an interesting listen. I'll tell you one thing this guy can talk. Very well spoken . Will see what happens.
  6. Congrats.... I'm terrible as well at this stuff. Have not played a paid bracket in 10 years.
  7. As I stated several time before .... in fact stated it was a great hire the second it happened.... I believe Killings is the right coach for the job. I'm simply stating I hope he can recruit as he has been built up to be. Of course time will tell.
  8. Completely agree . But be careful you get slammed for saying stuff like the above. I never felt Brown was a recruiter. A good coach....yes but never a recruiter.
  9. 100 correct . Everything you said there. I would more think like a single digit scorer that's a freshman or sophomore (as a transfer) at a high conference. A double digit scorer would likely go elsewhere. Do you want a power 5 transfer that plays 2 min a game? yes over a senior that averages 5 a game in the Patriot. Yes . For the most part . But there are exceptions.
  10. I enjoy the banter (minus the name calling , but I'm a big boy ...lol) Good luck to Albany Basketball and a return to the top of the AE.
  11. It was just to say he did not work out. More as a joke . But a good guy.
  12. No . They didn't . ( but better then this current recruit ) But I had a ton of respect for Brown. But a guy known as a recruiter I look forward to better. (Recruits) Brown was a very good coach. I think his loyalty to his staff and the university was his downfall. Maybe a pipe dream for better recruits . I also took Browns strengths as coaching. From what I heard and read , Killings strengths are recruiting. (Right now) . I'm not trashing him or Brown. At least not my intention. It was just to say I hope for better recruits.
  13. I'm sure this has gone on long enough. I'm not disgusted . I said it does not get my excited . That's all.
  14. I'm not into name calling. But I knew they were 1 year guys . And they did fine . I prefer to develop players but I understand the reason behind this recruit . Also I was one of the first to say it was a good hire and look forward to the season .
  15. Great question. Coach Killings is known as a recruiter that has deep roots in the northeast. I hoping that we can compete with some slightly higher conferences go get better players here. Recruiting is his strength. So I guess I expect to see better recruits.
  16. For the most part they played very well . I guess what I'm saying any you may be missing is that there are over 1000 players in the portal and a 5 point a game player as a grad transfer does nothing for me yet ! Of course I know nothing about the current players. If he has 10+ scholarships to give then this guy is fine . If not I would rather see a guy with multiple years to develop. You cherry picked a couple of guys., but it normally takes a year or so to get used to to system. That's basically all . I wish him the best and look forward to better recruits. And if you mean pull
  17. Sorry buddy had to do it . Mic 🎤 drop. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.timesunion.com/sports/amp/Jarvis-Doles-eyeing-a-long-future-with-UAlbany-15850760.php
  18. Again .... there was an article written by the "Record" last year and thayd exactly what he said he wanted to do. Does that mean he will of course not . But he said he wants to. I follow the program closely .
  19. As a UA fan I truly do. But if my time on this board does not tell you I love facts. If I have an opinion I love to back it up. No feelings. Just facts. If he has a Doles like year this year it would be great.
  20. I agree but the conferences are basically similar . Again I hope it works out .
  21. No . U are wrong . He was a graduate transfer . However he also got hurt and got another year. So again I will repeat it . He had 3 years left last year . So now he has 2 left. This guy has 1.
  22. Doles also had 3 years left last year!!!!!!!! This player has 1 !!!!!!!!!
  23. Absolutely. I could not agree more. I like Doles. Doles has 2 more years of eligibility left. This recruit 1. Doles played in a better conference (slightly but better). Doles was hurt. Doles can shoot free throws. Doles can stretch the defense with the 3. Doles averaged 5 a game as a sophomore not a senior. I have about 4 more but I think my point is made and then some .
  24. I truly hope you are right. 2:20 in highlights over 4 years. I bet I can find that on just about any player. Again 5 points a game for a grad transfer in a comparable league. If that gets you going great.
