  1. I was at the game.  Pretty much agree with everything already said.  Clark was the best player on the floor.  His 3 release is strange, but he was knocking them down so... Healy really impressed me.  Have high hopes for him. 

    First game so don't want to be too harsh, but Brooks was awful.  Miller sucked pretty much too.  Bigs not much to say. 

    Enjoyed the game for the most part.  Look forward to seeing this team grow under Coach Brown. 

  2. Too each their own.  I don't want to create animosity with anyone here. I respect all the true UA fans on this board.  Just stating my opinion and let's just agree to disagree.  I will continue to support the athletes who represent our school just like everyone else here.  Don't get it twisted, I have not and will never "root" for someone who leaves the school.  Good luck to me was meant more as a euphemism for beat it or better yet F off.  Like I said I was a little in my cups last night and I tend to not get angry, but more sentimental.

    Click, I appreciate your passion for UA...dont hate on me bro ?

  3. I was as mad as some of you guys at first.  It sucks to lose a player of that caliber.  I agreed he was like KD and said his decision was weak earlier in this thread.  I will never be happy about it, but I've moved on at this point.  We don't know the reasons why.  I would hope he at least had that conversation with coach.  I don't think anyone here can say if that definitively did or did not happen. As far as telling us fans why, hopefully he will do that at some point, but why would he do it now?  No matter what he says, coaching, education, fit, he would get killed regardless.  Maybe down the road, like when we play Yale next year he will give us some answers.  If not that is his choice. 

    There is so much we don't know about the situation so I would suggest stop taking it so personally and pull back on the self-righteous loyalty talk.  I love Albany, but I can't say I wouldn't choose a Yale degree if I had that choice back in the day.  

    As far as him with the positive, encouraging comments during the season how can some of you be angry about that?  He was supporting his team.  He played as hard as anyone all year.  That commitment with him possibly just not being happy for whatever reason I think speaks to his character.  

    I'm sad, mad, disappointed, but I do wish the guy well. He is a young man and most of us on here are not so let's just move on guys. 


    PS.. it's Saturday night and I had a few cocktails with some UA friends and this was a highly debated topic of conversation.  So that might have contributed to my ramblings (I apologize), but I did get a few to agree to the just move on. ?


  4. I was at the game today.  The biggest disappointment to me was the lack of hustle/effort.  I hope it's like some said and they were just tired because if not the effort was embarrassing.  Yale may have been bigger and stronger, but they also played harder and fought for the 50/50 balls while our guys were seemingly standing around.  It seemed like Yale won almost every ground ball.  Plus the turnovers were amatuer hour.  First time I saw them live this year and it was an absolute train wreck.  Hats off the Yale though who is a very good team. Tehoka needs to learn another move other than trying to bully his was through double teams only to turn it over or force a bad shot.  Fields might not play again this year or if he does he won't be near 100% even if they hold him out.  Does this team win the AE tourney without Fields?  Based on today I would say hell no.
