    yup, lacrosse is changing and we may never get back there, or anywhere near it, but they can never take this away:

    Glens Falls is a great spot for a basketball game, but unless the only games played there would be on a Saturday it would absolutely suck. I'm not driving an hour each way for a weeknight game.

    Even with living in Southern Saratoga County.....at least 45 minute drive 🚗!

  3. I was reminded by the numerous Instagram postings of individual sports teams announcing their members of the Class of 2022.  This included both undergraduates and graduate students receiving degrees or certificates. 

    To our student-athletes receiving degrees and certificates, congratulations....and if you are leaving us .... thank you for your efforts on our behalf.

    Wishing you success in your professional and personal life.

    We should just play at HVCC. Don't they have a pretty decent gym for our current attendance needs? Also, parking right next to it and plenty of it. 

    A decent suggestion .... however, I liked to nominate the Cool Agency Arena, f/n/a Glens Falls Civic Centre, Glens Falls, NY .... a great downtown atmosphere .... a few great micro breweries nearby......also know this suggestion not likely

    AmEast has NOT gotten better. In fact the league as a whole has most definitely gone down hill. Two years in a row AmEast has a playin game and/or facing #1 seed. Historically AmEast has been in the 8-10 seed range & has had two entries a number of times.  VT two years in a row in tournament and have not beaten a top 5 and pretty sure only 1 or 2 wins vs 6-20. 
    Question 2 “probably yes”; but then how do we account for only 1 ACC in this year when usually 4 to 5 make it EVERY YEAR? Also, how do we answer 5 no-schollie IVYs in? Basically I have no answer to your second question🧐.

    I think we have all waken up to the evolution of DI Lacrosse....after the 2018 season.... UAlbany had to face the impact of the transfer portal .... however we felt that our successes would allow us to recruit successfully ....our efforts have not led to a return appearance to the NCAA tournament .... the top one hundred players, for the most part, want to go to an Ivy Conference Team .... Big Ten Team .... and the ACC .....rest assured the ACC Teams have made a big effort to re-restock and return to prominence next year.... per Inside Lacrosse Syracuse has one of their best recruiting classes.... Big Ten and the ACC schools have the budgets  ..... Ivy Conference have a storied educational background.....and money ..... with the numbers of teams playing DI lacrosse increasing .... it appears the talent outside the top one hundred is now diluted and the competition from the Top Tier DIII schools for talent

    I'm with you, on paper this was really underwhelming in terms of what they hauled in. I've been around long enough to let it play out but I expected more...got a few small fringe guards and a kid that was supposed to be a walkon, handed out another 'ship to a guy who was a walkon. Better hope Amica is healthy, Beagle is as advertised and kids like Little and Neely and Redish take a big step up in year 2. 

    Despite being known as recruiter, Dwayne was at school with a basketball reputation and within a basketball conference  .... then drop an incident where our coach is disciplined .... recruits are going to avoid your institution .... now a couple of assistants have left for whatever reason .... if I recall one was referred as the one to bring premier Philadelphia, PA basketball players to UAlbany.... 

  7. If there is ever a day that Great Dane Athletes could use your support .... today is the day .... I have seen a handful games this season .... yes the women's game is different than the men's game however ..... our women athletes play a great game and deserve our support and our voices in the stands .... we need to seek our revenge against this green tide called Vermont

    I would say overall the team got worse, especially the defense. I think I said if I were Vegas the over/under on wins was going to be 4 1/2 and we just got the over.  I have no idea if Scott's seat is getting warm, and I think he has earned some time to work through this, but if I were Benson I would demand some changes and I think it begins with bringing in an experienced assistant with no ties to the program. It is long past time to go outside the program.

    To clarify an earlier statement. I am not advocating a coaching change for MLAX ..... my choose of words do not represent my true feelings.... I truly appreciated all the accomplishments achieved by Scott Marr .... further all his good works for the many communities of which he is part of cannot be overstated
