UA66's Achievements


Dane (3/4)



  1. Not sure I would put Bob Adams in that category. I've seen him ref many UA games over many,many years and he has been quite fair for the most part. However, I would move Laubenstein into a tie for #1 with Hughes. They are by far the worst I have seen at any level, even far worse than any ref for the youth leagues I coached in.
  2. Jimbo, I was at that game and remember it pretty much as you recalled. I believe we were not favored as Alfred was an established program with a good track record. I think that may also have been the game where torrential rains began to fall after we had that 7-6 lead. Neither team could do much after that but we (fans) held our collective breaths until the final whistle.
  3. "Albany is currently FIFTH in the country in average attendance...." Hmmm, shouldn't all of our lacrosse games against LLC be at Fallon Field since our ave. attendance is 2,446 and theirs is only 479. Besides, their arena only holds 1000.....can't fit in all the fans that would want to attend. I think we've heard this argument before but in a different context. Sorry, couldn't pass up the opportunity for a little sarcasm.
  4. Better have a hanky or tissue at hand when you read Peter's article in the Post. If that doesn't move you, nothing will. What a passionate, articulate, and caring human being! They don't come any better.
  5. It's probably a crime scene. Click, where were you between the hours of 5 and 7 a.m. this morning?
  6. Their real news team does a good job, as does their weather man.
  7. "like the TU clearly is with Siena" and not to mention Dougie Sherman of Channel 6 News who has at least one Siena story every night, ranging from which player has an ingrown toenail to who lost their hair gel.
  8. Couldn't agree with you more danefan. I've been watching UA football since its inception and can't recall a more disappointing team than this one. Besides a horrendous season, I worry about the impact such a record may have on future recruiting. It is painful to watch this team.
  9. It's been a long time since I last added anything to this Forum. Didn't have much to say, but I was starting to get very annoyed with this discussion about name change. I was about to write when Dane Pound posted his comment. He expressed my sentiments exactly. It's not the name that makes one's reputation, it's what you do on the playing fields, courts and tracks. UAlbany is doing pretty well in that department considering the relatively short time they have been in D1. I like the name UAlbany Great Danes. Keep it! And for those who think people don't know where Albany is I'll relate this brief story. I was on the tiny Pacific island of Guam a few years ago visiting my son who was in the Navy. One evening we went to the local farmer's market; I was wearing my UAlbany t-shirt - no mention of New York on it. I stopped at one of the vendors, a native Chimorran. He glanced at my t-shirt and asked, "You're from New York?"
  10. Dane 96, ditto on Jason Smith. As I watched from the west end of the field on sat. nite, I was very impressed at his speed and felt that he may be the best all-around receiver we have right now, though I still like Wall's speed and Furnace's (sp.?) hands. And I totally agree with Ruler on this point: we have some very talented receivers. We just need to get the passing game in sync. When that happens, as I think it will with Blasinsky maturing so quickly, the running game will open up a little more. Wow! And this is still a very young team.
  11. Bocanegra played as well as he has thus far this season. His passes were more crisp and accurate but his fumbles remain a problem. I really like the poise of that Blasinsky has shown. Wasn't sure how he would be if he had to scramble but he did pick up a nice gain (for a 1st down I believe) late in the game when he couldn't find an open receiver. The newcomer that has really impressed me most, besides Blasinsky, is Colin Simmons. He's a little guy - looks like a midget when standing next to the linemen - but he is exciting. He brings energy into the game. He's not only very fast but has very quick moves. He may be overlooked at this point because of his size, but I believe he's going to be a good one, a very good one. The whole defense looked impressive, except on the last CCSU drive when there were some missed assignments that left receivers open for long gains, but by then the game was essentially over. If I had to pick one guy who is looking better and better every week it has to be Trevor Dupont.
  12. UA66, Yep, remember that game. I also attended an Albany game at Alfred when the weather was not the best. Was the game at Albany the match where one of the Albany guys with the ball fell and slid on his butt over two 5-yard markers? Funny! (I could have said "Fanny!") 16262[/snapback] YES! Thanks for the reminder. Didn't make the game at Alfred so I can't compare but it would be hard to imagine worse conditions than the home game vs. Alfred.
