    Based on what is coming back, it's actually a pretty tough schedule.  The three away games are going to be knock-em down sockfests.  The 'Nova game is a marquee game as they are likely going to be VERY highly ranked.  

    Well...that being said ... no tougher than the original fall schedule with two less games and now having to play at Delaware...interesting if we play non conference games....I can live with this...the first game on the road helps us avoid a potential sports overload....chance of better weather closer to the coast...with the exception of a late season Nor'easter

    I watch a little college action and the Giants games, but that’s pretty much it. Without the crowds it really loses its appeal for some reason. When the kneeling started a few years back I pretty much stopped watching for a while and with the politics and protests shoved in your face I’ve not returned. Broke the habit. Didn’t watch a single minute of the NBA. I think I watched maybe 5 min of a baseball game to see what it was like with no fans. I read, watch other stuff on TV, do house chores, walk. It begs the question of what big changes are coming or will stay in place when this pandemic is over. There’s a revolution coming in the way education is done, office space is required, healthcare delivered, sports are played and on and on. Cities may never come back to where they once were. Maybe they will. Hard to tell. 

    Yes life is different...sometimes an occurrence like COVID-19 evolves changes never anticipated.... however sometimes those changes do not pan out and what was discarded becomes new and innovative .....  Our cities have raised and fall in the past... cities will raise again.. I hoping in what is left in my time here... I am recently retired .... so I am dealing with changes .... one day at a time.

    Seriously? I didn't even comment here. Kick rocks dude. Not sure what game you're playing at but I don't 'muddle' the waters just for fun. And congrats, you just took a topic completely off topic...by complaining about people taking stuff off topic. *facepalm*

    So you'd be okay with us wearing poop brown jerseys? I doubt that hah. It may not have been important in the 70's, but team image/branding is VERY important even at the college level these days. It helps, to some extent (maybe not so much at UA but definitely at bigger schools), the bottom line when people want to wear what the team is wearing.

    What was important to me in the 1970's is the same thing in the 1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010's and now in the 2020's:  The quality of the team on the court......when you started this thread you describe the color as black .... now its "poop brown"....I know branding is important ... that is why I am giving the new uniforms a chance ... "LET"S GIVE THE NEW UNIFORMS A CHANCE"... or from the TIASHOKE FARMS (Easton, NY) Instagram post....PEACE, LOVE and PUMPKINS.... for God's sake...

    Reponse to Eli's comments

    I was referencing this thread from another topic..... I have question for Eli.... Do you write things then wipe your conscience clean? Recently, I walked away from this forum .... Again, I am asking myself what value does this forum add to what I need to know.  The answer: the only value from the forum comes from those reporting on recruiting efforts and post game thoughts....there much more to gain from monitoring the individual UAlbany sports teams Instagram postings .....once again I walking away, so Eli feel free to write another 6,194 postings... perhaps we can smile at each other at Fred The Butcher Meat Shop the next time we pass each other....

  4. Sometimes I see a response or a thread started .... when I respond ... I always thinking a few thoughts:

    • Can I add some knowledge or perspective to the subject?
    • Do I disagree with the writer about the subject and need to provide another view?
    • Do I just want to muddle the waters?  hint, hint Eli

    OR;

    • Do I find someone's comments so outrageous and/or mean spirited and I decide not to comment in effort to allow the trend of the thread to die.

    Freedom of speech is a wonderful right.  However, all rights have price and we should never put someone's livelihood in danger just to make a comment on the forum.
