  1. I am a man created in God's image, just like any other human, and we all deserve a certain amount of dignity, but we as a human race screwed up very early on. I don't think we have improved much. Twentieth century history demonstrates that. Just like everyone like you, I recoiled at the image of George Floyd unable to breathe and see him deprived of dignity and life. I have seen examples of police misconduct, so I am not blind to the problem, but the scrutiny under which they now have to function is unwarranted. Every time a policeman shoots an unarmed black man, he will automatically be
  2. Yes, I remember that morning when the temperature dipped to -28. It seemed almost like a relief because the wind had finally died down. During the previous ten days or so, the temperatures were "milder," but the wind chills were ridiculous. I heard readings of minus 70's. (The experts used a different scale back then.) I looked up the lowest temperature ever recorded in Albany a few years ago, and the -28 still stands. The unusual thing about that day is that the temperature rose to 22 that afternoon -- yes, a fifty degree difference. When I returned to my dorm in Dutch Quad later that afterno
  3. Something else similar happened a long time ago. When UA was in its Division III days, we had been playing Utica College for a few years. That school was also DIII. Then Utica hired the former Milwaukee Bucks head coach. I remember Dick Sauers actually won a game or two against him.
  4. I lived on the same corridor with dslyank freshman year at Brubacher. Yes, I remember the physical education requirement. As dslyank stated, the Phys Ed building was incomplete, so we couldn't do much of a physical nature; instead, we had phys ed lectures in a space below the main floor of the library. We also had to read a thick book for the course first semester. It was the only time I pulled an all-nighter for a course. I didn't do outstanding on that exam. Afterwards, though, I tried to live up to the maxim in the phys ed book to get enough sleep before important dates the next day. I
  5. Right now, I'm just happy this team is giving SBU a run for the money on its own home court. I didn't think UA would be capable of this display.
  6. Assuming that UA will lose to UVM on Tuesday, the regular season will end on a very disappointing slide. I just want this season to end mercifully early. I don't have much hope for much success in the tournament, even given Brown's usually good preparation for that special part of the season. To say that this season has been a great disappointment to me is a huge understatement. With increased player experience and a successful summer of play and team bonding in Canada, I was honestly expecting much more from this team; instead, I saw a drastic decline of play as the season progressed. I almos
  7. Yep, there are always at least two views to every question like that. I know that in recent years the BPG has not been a sellout; yet, the Times Union indicated it might be tonight. Anyone have any hard facts on how many tickets have been sold?
  8. When was the last time UA men hit 100? What was the crowd reaction when the team did it?
  9. Wow! Not only does this development add great strength, but even more it is a great human interest story. I hope it works out well!
  10. I recall a couple years ago that Coach Brown, after a disappointing season, blamed himself for not doing enough of good recruiting. Has anything changed in that regard in the last few years? Has Brown now assumed more of a recruiting role?
  11. It will be good for Coach Brown to get his 300th win. Then the win streak will begin.
  12. Thanks for the explanation. I can only see the score, and not live action. Thanks again.

  13. Meanwhile, closer to home the Danes lost to Siena by 6 (52-46) after enjoying (too much) a 10-point lead in the third quarter.
  14. CCSU must really be tired of UA after this weekend. First, yesterday at the Bob; then, the women just beat CCSU on their court. Great weekend. Now, just sit back and relax and discover this evening where the women's volleyball plays in the NCAA's.
  15. Can this new recruit be the first reward for a successful season? Are the dividends now starting to pay?
  16. I want to inject this comment as it is Thanksgiving time. We UA fans should be grateful for the state of the athletic program. I know some of us had high expectations for the men's basketball team this season, and we are somewhat disappointed that our Sagarin rankings are not as high as we would like, but I want us to look at the men on the team. Is anyone in any trouble with the law? Are they all doing well in the classroom? Do they face bright futures after they graduate? Brown tries to recruit high-caliber STUDENT-athletes, and I think he has done an excellent job in that capacity. If we lo
