  1. This is the 10 year anniversary of our 2007 win in Burlington in the AE Championship. I forgot how good that 2007 Vermont team was. They went 15-1 in the conference that year, Beat #14 Boston College and won 20 of their final 21 games until we beat them.

    Remarkably similar to this trip to Burlington. Deja vu all over again ?? Kismet and Carl Ross.

  2. Won't have to stand outside in the cold. Temp in Burlington upon arrival will be between 5 and 8 Degrees F.............I am sure the UVM faithful will welcome us, as they have in the past.


    BURLINGTON, Vt. – UVM Athletics will host a pregame Fan Fest on Saturday morning (March 11) prior to the 2017 America East Men's Basketball Championship game in the Athletics Indoor Turf facility from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

    The activities will lead up to the America East title game between the top-seeded Cats and third-seeded Albany.

    Fans can access the Indoor Turf facility by entering the main lobby of Patrick Gym, then walking to their right into the west lobby, and the turf facility will be located to their left.

    101.3 ESPN will be broadcasting live from the pre-game celebration. Fan Fest will feature food and beverage giveaways from Juniors Downtown, Moe's, Bagel Place, Speeder & Earl's, and Coca-Cola. The festivities include games, giveaways, and free Rally Towels presented by Flat Fee Real Estate, the official Real Estate partner of UVM Athletics.

    A free face painter will be on hand and a kid's craft station will be available with the UVM Dance and Cheer teams. Fans are encouraged to wear gold for a "Gold Out" of Patrick Gym.

    The doors of Patrick Gym will open at 9:30 a.m. for the America East Championship. Due to the anticipated attendance, fans are prohibited from bringing any seat cushions, stadium seatback chairs, and bags of any kind into the gymnasium.

  3. Just figures, we have two teams in the championship games and the big news is that Siena let their coach go after an 8-24 season...not a real surprise but it is time to get back to the important stories of the day!




    AndrewSantillo one name that I think is intriguing is Stony Brook's Steve Pikiell - haven't heard his name, but he could be a good hire for Siena


    I digress... lets not bring them into this thread... :D

    are you kidding ---Siena would be a huge step down for a guy like Pikiell
  4. Santillo also posted Ryan Spelman, a true freshman, will be the #2 QB. If I remember right he graduated high school early and started school in January. Meeks and Drew Smith were mentioned but I haven't heard about Ryan Smith, the Colgate transfer. Does he have to sit out this year?


    You are correct about Spellman.


    I thought Ryan Smith sat out last year? He does need to sit a year though in an FCS-to-FCS transfer.

    Ryan Smith was at Colgate last fall. he saw action in a few games. I believe he transferred to UAlbany for Spring Semester 2012.

  5. I agree with Clack, they should be throwing the University a nice lump sum of cash,

    but I'd say more along the lines of over a million.


    The university bends over backwards to accomodate training camp. From what I see,

    we do gain some recognition as the host, but it doesn't really do much for me anymore.

    The university's commitment to them should be rewarded.


    I know that John Mara, like his father before him, reads every letter sent to him by fans. We should get a couple people to write some letters to him urging him and the Giants to make a donation to the stadium.

    If the GIANTS are going to use the facility during their camps -----shouldn't they should chip in? wouldn't they want to chip in? The Giants have everything to gain from a new facility,
