  1. I still see no article on the actual football game or the game against Canisius in the online version of the TU this morning. I guess an exciting finish to a home football game doesn't warrant coverage.
  2. The view of the game from Newsday Long Island: https://www.newsday.com/sports/college/stony-brook/stony-brook-stumbles-in-regular-season-finale-1.23528957 The loss was so devastating to the team that members were not made available to the press after the game.
  3. I went over to the Times Union online version just a couple minutes ago to check out any story line they might have on the tremendous football victory or the men's basketball game. There's nothing. I expected little news about the away Canisius game, but I expected a decent write-up on football since it was played at Casey Stadium. But of course there was a nice story about Siena's victory over little Norfolk State. Why? Of course, my question is rhetoric al.
  4. According to the UA news, the team had three freshmen playing most of the game. The future looks good.
  5. I was smart enough to be dumb to forget about programming. Whenever I have a computer problem, I'll just come here and ask an expert here on this forum. As far as next Saturday is concerned, I'm just waiting until I see "Winter Sport" on top of the forum categories again.
  6. I like the fact that the other team is playing at SEFCU. It seems that UA almost always has to go to Boston.
  7. I hope Brown uses a lot of players. I don't care that the bench may not be nearly as effective as the starters. The bench players need to learn on the court. Not playing them creates resentment about lack of playing time and wears down the starters too much so that they aren't as effective at the end of the season when we need to do well in conference play. Let the newer players get some practice during the OOC part of the season. Just my two cents.
  8. Not the result I wanted, but not a bad outing for the first game of the season with a new team on the road.
  9. Glad Healey showed some poise at the end with his three.
  10. Great article. Now we all know the extent of all his injuries. I am happy for him personally. I am very glad that he doesn't have to face the anticipation of a complex surgery any more and that he is on the way back. He can serve as great inspiration to a lot of us.
  11. The UA men beat Brown this afternoon 2-1. Brown scored its lone goal late in the game. It was also Brown's first loss of the season. The game looked quite physical, especially toward the end.
  12. Yes, he was a small kid when I watched him on the sidelines with his dad. I can't believe he's that old! Good luck to him!
  13. Regarding LCC fans: false sense of entitlement.
  14. Agreed, but it would definitely be an upgrade for their program.
  15. If LCC wants to play us every year, it can join the America East.
  16. I'm so glad we didn't give in to LCC's attempted extortion this coming season. You've gotta back up what you say. In other matters, I am excited to see our Aussies play! I am betting they will bring a lot.
  17. Perhaps there's another reason why LCC has fewer tweet followers. Where has LCC gone in the postseason? Its crosstown rival, however, has created a lot more excitement the last few years in mid-March. We may simply have more non-school followers.
  18. I think most of us here support UA women's sports. I know that personally I had never watched any women's sports until this website. I had, however, watched many girls' field hockey games at the school where I taught. When you compare this forum's interest in women's sports, I think you will find it much higher than at other schools. May I bring up LCC's forum as an example. I think the great majority of us here support the UA woman in successful sports, and I often bring up the caliber of our women in the classroom to non UA people.
  19. Greed probably cost him his NYS pension. With the highest salary in the SUNY system (at least at one time), this penalty will be expensive.
  20. Yes, more men get to play in each game. With the limited rotation, i don't like seeing our best, but exhausted men on the court towards the end of the game with little left in the tank. How many games did we lose last season in the last five minutes?
  21. I like the points made on the UA sports site about the upcoming game: "This is the first time a SUNY school has earned a trip to a men’s Division I Final Four. The UAlbany field hockey team [who else?} was the first SUNY team to do it in 2014. UAlbany is also the first America East team to reach the semifinal round since Towson in 2001."
