  1. TU article on Safety Dave Casale




    Interesting tidbit at the end that Ford is hopeful Nicomini will be ready for the season and that he was moving from safety to LB.



    Must have been a slow sports day at the TU, we got 2 articles on UA sports in one day! Siena must not have submitted what their players had for dinner early enough to meet the story/printing deadline.

  2. This happens to me once or twice a season. I've also had to park along the side of the "road" around the perimeter of the lot a few times. It is very frustrating. I have two kids and often get to the games 10-15 minutes before tipoff. This shouldn't happen. The lot was seal coated and re-stripped two summers ago, so someone (especially the company that did the work) should know exactly how many parking spots there are. The last time this happened a few weeks ago UPD blocked the lot entrance so I couldn't drop my wife and kids off or even turn around in the lot.

  3. Ambrose lost out on Rookie of the Week honors to Maine's Sean McNally.




    "McNally earned newcomer honors after scoring six points and grabbing three boards against Big East perennial power Connecticut on Saturday. McNally played 19 minutes off the bench and hit three of his eight shots from the field."


    Conference Notebook Notables

    "Several America East student-athletes had standout performances last week. Albany's Tim Ambrose (Brentwood, N.Y./Our Savior New American School) scored a career-high 24 points against Duke by making 10-of-16 from the field. It was the most points allowed by the Blue Devils to date this season... "


    Ambrose: 10-16 24pts 4 REBS 29 mins (Duke 111 UA 70)

    McNally: 3-8 6pts 3 REBS 19 mins (Uconn 105 Maine 60)


    How does McNally win????

  4. From the NFL Players Assoc web site (http://www.nflpa.org/CBA/cba.aspx):


    For the 2007 season, each NFL club must reduce its roster to 75 players by Tuesday, August 28, 2007. Each club must further reduce its roster to 53 players on the Active/Inactive list on Saturday, September 1, 2007.


    On Sunday, September 2, 2007, the day after the final pre-season cutdowns, each club may establish a Practice Squad of no more than eight (8) players who are free agents and who do not have more than nine games on an Active list in a previous season. The minimum salary for a practice squad player is $4,700 per week, including the playoff weeks. In addition, a player under contract to a club as a Practice Squad player is completely free to sign a contract with any NFL club to play on their Active/Inactive list.


    So it is my understanding that he will either be cut or make the 53 man roster. If cut, he is a free agent and able to sign with any team to either their active/inactive (53 man) roster or practice squad. Teams can sign players form another teams practice squad, but the players must be added to the 53 man roster not to their own practice squad.

  5. From Baltimore Sun.................


    Danes' defense

    No. 6 Albany (5-0) has climbed near the top in a lot of national polls because the Great Danes can control a game with defense.


    Albany has two players who can dictate the pace of a game, sophomore long-stick midfielder Chris Schongar and junior defenseman Craig McDonald. McDonald is a leader who has shut down the opponent's top scorer every week and has been a major weapon in clearing the ball.


    Schongar is simply tenacious and dominates the midfield by swallowing up ground balls. He scored his first goal last week against Drexel.


    "I wonder who you're talking about," Albany coach Scott Marr said, laughing.


    "Craig does a really nice job of taking out the other team's top attackman, and that's great to have when you can take out the other team's quarterback. Chris is interchangeable as a defenseman and midfielder, and he is great on the transition."

  6. From Singelais' Blog:
