  1. That ending was....interesting. Both of these programs need vast improvement.
  2. I was there and it was truly a great effort by Albany. Haney was killer in the 1st half and basically was the difference maker tonight. Maine missed way too many bunnies. Crowd and atmosphere was terrific....Maine is a special place for women's hoops. Good luck in the NCAA Tourney!
  3. Local news station preview from a Maine POV .... https://www.foxbangor.com/bangor-local-sports/breakdown-of-fridays-america-east-championship-game-between-maine-and-albany/
  4. Great comeback today! Congrats.😀 Stony Brook fans making excuses left and right about how all of their teams are sucking due to the AE tourney ban. Cue the violins....that type crap won't play well over in the CAA.
  5. Maine opens at LSU this weekend so looks like both the Danes and Black Bears will have their hands full with ranked SEC opponents. AE Baseball was actually pretty decent last year with none of the teams having truly "bad" seasons.....the league's RPI was middle of the pack which is GREAT for baseball. With Stony Brook not eligible.....the league tourney should be really fun and unpredictable. The AE Tourney will be in Orono this season....I was reading that the prior tourney held in Orono got high marks from coaches and administrators. Maine always hosts great post-season events (when they can get them). Locals are always supportive and visiting fans are always treated well. Hope to see some of you there.....the weather should be fantastic by late May.....Bar Harbor/Acadia only an hour away as a side trip!
  6. 64 points looked very nice tonight.🙂 Maine played their best game of the season....Albany played tough but not quite good enough on this night. Cooper is quite a talent and Haney is also very smooth. 2 very talented sophomores. Maine is young as well.....I have a feeling that these 2 programs are going to be in some heated battles over the next couple of years. Re-match in Albany in a couple of weeks!
  7. Winning would motivate fans to come to your games....no matter what league you are in.
  8. I've suggested Albany, Maine, UNH and Vermont to the Patriot across multiple forums. In "normal" times this would be a non-starter......but in these times with big NCAA changes coming.....I think anything is possible. Listen to Dane96...he knows his stuff. So what do you guys think of this Patriot League scenario and would any of you consider leaving CAA Football for this set-up if this were a possibility?.....

  9. It's been dreadful for years now.....at least you don't have to watch it every week.✌️
  10. It was UGLY down in Newark. You guys shouldn't have to many problems winning this one.....we looked BAD.
  11. Early forecast for next Saturday in Orono.....partly sunny and 36. Not bad....let's hope that it holds. Congrats on the win! I love it when UNH loses.😀
  12. It's gonna be a wild finish.....about 8 teams currently vying for 2-3 at-large bids. One thing overlooked by Albany fans.....Maine has been on fire with their new freshman QB Fagnano who replaced the injured Ferguson (thank god!). Fagnano's stats for 3.5 games: 63-95 (66.32%), 1116 yards, 12 TD, 2 INT
  13. Who won? I turned if off when Albany was leading by 16 in the 3rd Q.
  14. Watched the game. Your D is impressive. Maine's record might not that great....but the Black Bear offense can be a high octane machine & you held them in check. Maine's offense will be national championship caliber over the next couple of seasons. Your offense is terrible. Opponents have been lighting up Maine's secondary. While our D-line is pretty sturdy up front, we can be burned on big plays.....I really felt comfortable that Albany wasn't up to the task in that regard. Good luck the rest of the way & get a couple of upset wins!
  15. I was at the game.....a few observations: *Albany was lucky to still be in the game at the end. Maine should have been up by double digits, but they kept shooting themselves in the foot. *Maine has a QB with a big arm and a few BIG TIME receivers. Maine might have the best/deepest receiving corp in the CAA.......that was the major advantage for Maine. * Very impressed with Albany's tenacity.......they played hard the entire game. I don't think that Albany had as much overall team speed as Maine did. *Attendance......Maine had about 7K actually in the stands and another 5K in the tailgating area throughout the game. It was a huge overall crowd but definitely not a "record" for butts in the seats. On a side note.......I HATE that so many FCS programs are televised with cameras pointed at the half empty and smallish "visitor" stands.......it ALWAYS makes Maine's crowd and atmosphere look like crap.
  16. Is/was the Albany FH team scheduled to play a return game @ UNC this season? Also....good thing that Albany and Stony Brook were not scheduled to play @ Elon this season. That would have affected conference scheduling.
  17. If only that were the case, Bob. Last season, Maine and Albany split and were 14-2 in AE.........non-conference RPI was used as the tie-breaker......not the fact that Maine went 2-0 vs. #3 Stony Brook while Albany went 1-1 vs. the Seawolves. But whatever.......if Queen Amy & her court think that computer rankings based on non-conference competition is a better way to break a tie than records vs. other teams in AE then so be it.
  18. Non-conference RPI determines the regular season champ, #1 seed and home court advantage. Great system! I wonder how Albany fans would feel if Maine had the RPI advantage......and let's say the teams had split with Maine winning by 1 point and Albany winning by 30.......???
  19. The last post was on Dec. 9 so it fell off the list of threads I guess. Any updates now that its about 40 days later and Signing Day is around the corner??? You're not in the NEC anymore......act like it.
