  1. Agreed. People just need to tell that to the Athletic Administration.
  2. I just said 'football school' because that has been heard being said. Meaning a higher % of resources go towards football since we're a 'football' school now.. I keep getting sucked into football after I agreed this should be a bball thread lol.
  3. The Admin can promote UA being a football school but the reality is that has meant resources ($) taken away from other programs to support a flailing one, because we're a football school now... ? I do agree though this is a bball thread.. ? so back to bball....can't wait!
  4. The donation was due to the pre existing Foundation relationships, not Athletics.
  5. I know they believe we are a football school. Heard its been said. I think most fans and those who have been fans or affiliated with school for more than a few years would disagree with them (newer admin).
  6. Agreed. Admin thinks we are a football school so we don't get a P&G game cuz noone cares about basketball, but we have 4-5 years more of our winning coach Gattuso... ?.
  7. Classic's twitter account posted this link for tournament passes https://www.ssearenabelfast.com/basketball-hall-of-fame-belfast-classic-tournament-pass-sse-arena-belfast
  8. There is also a travel package here: https://collegesportstours.com/belfast-classic-2018-travel-packages/ Includes things you'd assume but also transportation to and from the arena.
  9. David was on UA campus. Was good to see David Nichols today. He stopped in to camp. We had a real good chat. He seems to be doing well!-CB on twitter Also posted a video Knotts posted on Instagram.
  10. We made GDAC donation on Dec 29, 2017 after Athletics sent out an email stating if you get your donation in before the end of the calendar year they would count it towards your football and basketball seat requirement for the upcoming seasons. When we got our football ticket renewals it stated we had NOT paid our GDAC donation for our seat requirement. We reached out to Justin Brown who explained to us the documents sent out from Athletics was incorrect. And that in fact our Dec 2017 donations DID count for our 2018 Football and Basketball seat donation. He said the reason why the Athletics forms were incorrect was because when we donated in Dec 2017 they had yet to 'set up' the fund that the donations were going into. It all happened so fast they wanted to give fans the opportunity to donate in the 2017 calendar year since the tax reform was passed so quickly and with little information for them to go by. (Though I'm not sure why 7 months later Athletics doesn't have our donation tagged correctly for the 2018 season, but either way...) So make sure that even if your online Athletics account OR the mailed forms they sent you state you did not yet pay for your GDAC seat requirement that if you think you did, contact Justin first before paying it. He will be able to let you know for sure if you really do owe a GDAC donation or if Athletics has old information.
  11. Saw David's dad post this yesterday, so seems no ill will towards UA.
  12. They're high quality which is why they are so much. Which is nice to see good quality items vs. overprices jersey shirts from the bookstore. It's not for everyone but glad to marketing team letting other parts of the school, etc use of the logos, etc.
  13. Some nicer high end UA gear. I saw it posted by Alumni Association on May 18th. They have a free shipping code through May 23 code: UALVB18.

  14. Inauguration for President Rodriguez was today. His family came from various parts of the country to see him, it was pretty cool to see them all visit. They had a small dinner last night, a coffee ceremony this morning and the official ceremony at the Performing Arts Center on campus today w/ the Chancellor. UAlbany's new president is inaugurated https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/UAlbany-s-new-president-is-inaugurated-12829673.php
  15. “Coach Brown was great through it all," Nichols told Gazette sportswriter Michael Kelly. "He did nothing but try to help.” Interesting quote from David. I think we noticed through the years he was having some problems on the court, and who knows off the court. He lost his sister while he was here at college too. His dad had a much larger presence here at games (made scoreboard too )this year than in previous years...at a lot more games...traveling from Chicago...which can't be ignored. Hopefully he gets whatever he needs.
  16. Hmmm some news tweets appeared and are now deleted on Twitter... sigh. The fact that Roger said Monday for Joe's waiver and didn't say that for David...makes me wonder. Well Joe made his decision now, so that's that I guess.
  17. I wish Joe the best but it seems (by pure speculation lol) Joe wants a team he can ride into the post season with and UAlbany was looking for Joe to be the leader to take us to the NCAA tournament. As we know we never got our leader we were looking for this year. We all had those high local hero expectations sometimes expectations are wrong. Nothing is wrong with that, I'd rather him be honest with himself and the team if that's the case, who knows. Not everyone wants to or has the skills to be that. Maybe he knew he was not going to be that clutch guy everyone thought he would be. Maybe being a small fish in a big pond is something he wants to try out his grad yr. A LOT of maybes, we will never know. Only him and CB know. Onto the purple and gold scrimmage!
  18. Suero was given bad advice thinking he would be amazing at a higher level. Seems Joe may be in the same boat. He has a tough time playing defense in the AE...how will he bode in a higher conference with better offensive players? Its not like Maryland went to the tourney this year either...(example of place he may go)
  19. I'm guessing you're wrong with that thought.
  20. Okay nevermind Michael Kelly from Gazette contacted Joe and Joe confirmed he is leaving.(twitter)
  21. Just a thing to point out.. they are report different things for the players. David they are clear he is leaving and confirmed by his dad on Twitter. Joe.. it says Monday... so maybe it's not set in stone ..wishful thinking :). " Cremo’s release is expected to come Monday. " And I haven't seen any confirmation from Joe or his family posted like we have seen with David. https://twitter.com/chrisonorato/status/979484984506486784
  22. So I know David was super smart and graduated with his BA in 3 years and transferring would be as a grad transfer. Anyone know about Joe, will he also graduate with his BA in 3 years...and is his transfer also as a grad student?
  23. Thanks! You would have thought that they would advertise a time change since people have already bought tickets but you know that's called communication LOL
