  1. That's fair. I like stretch goals too but I want a short/intermediate goal to take over the AE again. I think that can be done w/ a 6'9" center.
  2. I'm w/ you on Doles. I think he's a very solid/versatile big for the AE. I just don't think you need to be 6'11" to play center at this level.
  3. You guys are much more knowledgeable on lacrosse than I am but doesn't it, again, really come down to face offs? Lose by two w/ how many less possessions? It's the age old question (and forget TD for a minute) but why can't we get an average face off guy. I know we're just under 50% on the year but in the four losses we are 39%. In those loses that's 25 xtra possessions. In the two losses to UVM they had 18 xtra possessions right? I've gotta think even if we turned that into 10 xtra possessions we win at least one of those games and our defense looks much better.
  4. Maybe, but a 20 year established coach recruiting should be a little easier than a brand new coach faced w a ton of transfers so yes I’ll give CK a little more leeway.
  5. I still don't get it when sports announcers don't know how to pronounce Albany. It's not like Worcester. It's the capital of one of the largest states in the US. Not like it makes me crazy, I just don't get it.
  6. Yes I’d be happy but I wouldn’t think we were unbeatable by a crosstown rival.
  7. No chance they win the conference if Iona had played a full schedule.
  8. No offense but I provided facts. They lost to a bunch of crappy teams this year. A year which you proclaimed that "they're back" and we would be "gifting" them wins.
  9. Now they're unbeatable (gift them). Come on they lost games in that conference. They lost to St.Peters, Iona, Niagara, Marist and Canisius. I refuse to accept that we couldn't beat them next year.
  10. Soon. They aren't "back". They had a decent season. Their best player is gone. Tell me who is coming back next year and I'll give a better answer. I think the core we had this year was pretty competitive. A few holes to fill and I'm hopeful DK can do this.
  11. People get way too caught in thinking that the people on this board represent the whole UA BB fan community. We are the die hards. I really think the larger UA BB community is not as concerned as this group is w/ where the game is played. Ask the casual UA fan or the casual BB fan where it should be played. Take the purple glasses off for a minute. It was an event at the TU. 10+K people. Bars and restaurants filled. It introduced local people to UA hoops. It introduced Siena fans (not necessarily alum) to UA hoops. Those games were good for us. They were good for the community. Split the arena and have it at the TU (dead horse, sorry) and beat them every year. Win the local fans over. Show them that Siena is a second rate program.
  12. A little ironic that John Calipari was praising his character or is that just me?
  13. 100% agreement. It's only a presser but that was about as good as it gets.
  14. I guess I shouldn't be but I'm a bit surprised by guys entering the portal that already have multiple colleges under their belt. Transferring that many times has got to be a drain on academic progress no?
