  1. Think so. Here's the full press release: https://americaeast.com/news/2020/10/19/2020-21_season-structures.aspx and the relevant part about the basketball season:
  2. What I've read makes it seem like positive cases have to remain on campus until there's a negative test. From the TU article about Oneonta: "All students who have tested negative for COVID-19 will move out from Friday, Sept. 4, to Monday, Sept. 7. Students who have been moved to quarantine are asked to remain isolated on campus until they are cleared by the Department of Health." I don't know what their testing protocol looks like, but could the high percentage of student athletes have more to do with them continuing to be tested regularly and non athletes only being tested if they go
  3. Was this something that we knew?
  4. I absolutely don't think that anyone actually in the movement is strictly trying to make anyone feel bad about being white. There's an argument that could be made that learning about the various forms of privilege might cause you to feel angry ("Wait a minute, this is BS and that hasn't been my experience. I've had to scrap my way through life and haven't been given any advantages") or, yes, it might make you feel bad (experiencing "white guilt", etc) or any other handful of valid emotions. The idea of learning about privilege is so you can then unlearn unconscious behaviors. Have you eve
  5. BLM is a patriotic statement and if you can't see that 🤷‍♂️
  6. Dislike the cropped ears. That and tail docking just seem intensely cruel. Even the supposed benefits of docking a working dog's tail aren't proven On the other hand, I do like the UA font with the cropped A. Whether intentionally or not, it kind of echoes the shape of the the Capital Region and northward
  7. Big Ten just moved to that for fall sports. I can see most colleges going this route because it then gives more time to make the final decision on whether sports will even take place and if they were to happen, it ends up reducing the likelihood of inter regional spread
  8. His tape makes it look like he'd be a good fit and I'd be excited if he decided to come here
  9. Maybe I'll still buy my season tickets and just have them place a cardboard cutout of me sitting there. Build a little mechanical skeleton and remotely rig it so I can press a button to stand it up when something cool happens and maybe broadcast my voice and claps from home
  10. I won't be going, but I don't like football, so I wouldn't be there anyway 👍 Honestly, I'm even a little hesitant on basketball until more is known about the impact of covid-19 on blood clotting/PE because I've got a genetic clotting disorder. Here's hoping though!
  11. Genuinely absurd that Joe Bena was only an honorable mention Toss Pat Riley. He didn't even coach here
  12. Wondering what happened there. They're losing a loooooot of minutes
  13. At 6'5", he seems like he might be undersized to play inside, though watching some football highlights he does seem strong as hell Like Ahmad Clark, he's a DeMatha kid. I like the idea of building a deeper connection and pipeline from that program
  14. This sucks. I walked away from the Purple and Gold game his freshman year certain he was going to be a star. Really unfortunate that it didn't work out here and I wish him all the best
  15. Guess that Mitch Doherty has entered the transfer portal. I think we all anticipated that, but there's the official confirmation
  16. He's played his ass off for this team through injuries. Sure he had tried to do it all and that sometimes meant a lot of TOs and forced shots, but that's mostly because he's had to. Kid carried this team on his back all year long. I've really got nothing bad to say about him So glad he was recognized and joined the 1,000 point club this year
  17. It seems a little insulting both to Josh and Frusc to give the freebie to him. To me, it would undercut what's a meaningful gesture for someone who had their career cut short. Just let one of the starters get the matching basket and get the game on
  18. Home sick, but I've got a good feeling about this one! Romani looks great tonight and I wish we had another year with him
  19. Agreed. At the end of that season, I found myself wishing that he had another year at UA because he was really clicking with Cremo. Those last few games, and especially senior night when Travis was out, they had some good two man stuff going
  20. No two ways about it, we got trounced. D was fine, but that may have been the worst game I've seen from this team offensively. BAD AND NOT GOOD, FRIENDS
  21. It was wild hearing the announcers say he has a more complete game than Lamb. Wonder how the naysayers felt about that? Pretty glad the next game is Thursday. Hopefully that gives everyone some time to rest up
  22. That's a weird take. I've been consistently impressed with him this year and think he's largely been very good on the defensive end against less athletic bigs. He's also made a big leap offensively and should/could be a six to eight points a night guy.
  23. Bummer of a loss after a surprisingly strong first half. Cam had a nice start, but Lamb, and really all of Vermont, is unflappable. Their big shots were just shots, y'know? Rizutto played well and Hansen looked good for long stretches. That one block was killer. As usual, the drought killed us and Vermont is too good for the team to dig out of whatever lead gets built up.
  24. Adam down. Sucks. Anyone smarter than me know if that was the ankle he sprained earlier?
  25. Messy, messy half. Rizutto has done well so far. Nothing he could have to prevent that Akin block. I like when he drives and wish he did it more
