Great Dane (4/4)



  1. No longer have any skin in the game, but this was passed on to me. Looks like two opportunities to see the team in Albany this fall. October 15th is the alumni game, and I understand there will be some sort of ceremony for the graduating classes which were disrupted because of the virus. I think I may make it to that for sure to see some of the guys. Then on the 23rd will be the fall ball scrimmages. I was told the indoor field out by the airport, but that seems odd, but maybe the other facilities are booked.
  2. The defensive and specialty unit coaching is just awful. And HOF to your point there is just zero accountability which is why I have been saying for years that there need to be some some changes.
  3. I'm going to be a broken record but another ill advised slide leaves a guy wide open for a shot and goal. Just insanity.
  4. Don't get me started. Ramos is going to have to stand on his head in the 2nd half, and offense is going to have to be even better. Probably our most efficient offensive performance in recent memory.
  5. Happy to see Ramos get action. Should have happened sooner, but you throw him in with little game time in the most important game of the season? Even the announcers are slamming our face-off strategy. Just really random coaching decisions in the biggest game of the season.
  6. Very unselfish offense -defense and face off needs to tighten up . The face off management/strategy is a disaster.
  7. First off I have no idea what they team is being asked to do on defense. I had some insights but not now. My impression has been for years is that Albany is willing to give up the outside shot and not let anything easy in close, especially in the middle. That isn't a horrible philosophy IMO if that plays into your goalie's strengths. But today and for the last couple of years we do a lot of ball watching IMO, and just way too many unnecessary slides when the opposing player isn't a scoring threat. There were two plays today where 48 collapsed in the middle when no help was needed and it was a skip pass up top and an uncontested goal. I don't think I am stretching it when I am saying that Kunz was running out 15+ yards at times for no apparent reason. When that happens he has to recover or the defense needs to rotate. There definitely is a time and place to slide, but show me that a certain player needs to be slid too, prove to me that someone is hot with the outside shot, and show me that they can beat my goalie from outside. It just seems that we have guys out of position way too often, and it isn't like UMBC is a super athletic team. They are known for good defense and a really methodical offense.
  8. UMBC doesn't have explosive attack men. The slides today, and for the last number of years have been hard to understand and we created much of their offense. Kunz was sliding to guys 15-20 yards out, and when we make those slides it causes the the defense to start chasing. I have never understood what is going on back there. Overall just way, way too sloppy.
