  1. I was listening. What happened at the end of that game. With four seconds to play in a tie game - did Sanders not know the situation and think he needed to foul?
  2. Did the top of the AE beat the bottom of the maac last night? Maybe. Siena points to their injuries. They have very short memories.
  3. Presidential names have been UA standouts. Keep 'em coming.
  4. In the airport right now on my way to Albany. Here's to another sweet weekend.
  5. It was a gritty game. Solid. PHooley's having a rough start to his season.
  6. Can't believe I was there...I follow a lot of sports, I love the Knicks but this for me was the #1 sports moment in my life. Not because the stage was that grand but the emotional attachment to this team, this player, his story...simply amazing. I too, can not believe I was there. Was up from FL for a meeting in Hartford. Drove to Albany hoping we'd be in the final game. And the rest is history.
  7. Call me dumb, but what is a 'sub coach"
  8. I guess "winnable" is somewhat subjective..but what teams do you see as winnable BCS games? Like a wake forest? Or a low level AAC team? We've got a very winnable BCS game against South Florida.
  9. University of South Florida - my backyard. This is going to be great.
  10. UK with an undefeated regular season last year - putting a repeat on the line in game one. I like their guts
  11. I presume low major LCC would be traveling to Harvard as part od the agreement. If so, it is a non story and good riddance LCC could be going to Harvard for a basketball game followed the next day with a Lunch and Learn.
  12. That is irrelevant. IMO, good riddance. There are many other companies who will move in if they haven't already (Chik-Fil-A, etc.). How come, or rather since when is, diminishing the economic/religious rights of people of one group okay as long as it's in the name of 'progression' of some other groups rights? If we're all about 'rights to the people', then how is this even an issue? It's asinine. It's not like the entire state of Indiana is telling the LGBT community to leave the state, they are just saying, "If one business doesn't want to sell to you, fine...walk down the block and hit up their competitor who is willing to sell to you." The only group this is hurting is the people who refuse to sell to LGBT's...it's hurting THEIR wallets. Religious people in Indiana aren't being violent towards LGBTs. They are simply not accepting their money. In a free enterprise system, how can ANYONE tell someone when and why to sell goods/services? You sell it to whoever you want to sell it to. But no, the LGBT's want everyone to know and scream from the mountain top that it's not fair. It's stupid. Society today, with all of it's 'political correctness', is really something...something ridiculous.. There was a family in Oregon a year or two ago who owned a bakery. They refused to make a wedding cake for an LGBT couple. After a battle in court, they were fined $150k and had to close the doors to their business. How on earth is that fair? There was probably a few other bakeries within a 20 mile radius that couple could have gone to. The LGBT community took away their source of income and means of supporting their family. Sure, just like "they can go get another job", LBGT's "can go to another bakery." Ridiculous. Here's the thing, if you own a business that serves the public then you shouldn't be allowed to discriminate that public in which you serve. Simple as that really. If your religious views are such that you can't bake a cake for someone, then you probably shouldn't own a bakery in the first place. No private business exists in a vacuum. I agree Dog. We have the right to practice our religion, but it does not trump community rights. This is exactly the argument that was used to keep Negroes out of businesses and at the back of the bus. Regardless of my personal feelings, I would hate to see a sign on any store that reads, 'homosexuals not allowed.' The State of Indiana kicked a hornets nest when it did not have to. I think Will Brown's best course of action is to attend, but make a public statement that clarifies his position of intolerance to any and all discrimination.

If I own a luncheonette in Indiana I can ban Negroes from sitting at my counter. Regarding WB - he should be able to travel to Indiana to attend the games. However, my suggestion is that he comment one way or the other to clarify his decision. He is a coach, but also a teacher - his decision either way, is a teaching moment.
  14. Their argument became forever gone when they decide to play Vermont at Vermont. Seems to be no logic in playing the game in GF. Playing home and home is the best deal they can hope for - and with the growing disparity in talent, that window is closing quickly. There are D3 schools in the area that might give them a game AND would bring fans to the TUC. And, LCC might pick up a much needed win.
  15. For a #3 (OU) seeing two go down today - that is a sphincter tightener. Psychologically I think it divides their concentration more than focuses it.
  16. I remember that 1896 game. Pretty sure it was NYU knocking off Brown. How old are you man... Click - you don't want to know. I can tell you this - I saw Albany beat Siena at Cardinal Mooney HS (or was it Albany beating Cardinal Mooney at Siena HS - one of those two). Actually there are few on here that know me and I was happy to reconnect at the Stony Brook game last week.
  17. I remember that 1896 game. Pretty sure it was NYU knocking off Brown.
  18. An omen perhaps: #14 UAB beat #3 Iowa State. Longtime VP for Finances at UAB? None other than Richard Margison - UAlbany Hall of Famer and legend.
  19. Nevermind, NE turned it over with 2 seconds left. Game. They had a great chance. #12 had two bad turnovers towards the end of the game there. Kid got nervous and was out of control. Feel bad for him. #12 looked bad that entire game
  20. Concerned about full court pressure and beating that. Also some concern about shooting 3s in the high school practice gym and not having a chance to shoot them at the real venue. But....not really concerned. We've got this one.
  21. http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-basketball/2015/03/18/5-bold-predictions-for-no-3-oklahoma-vs-no-14-albany/ If you are looking for bulletin board material - here it is.
  22. I fear that I am developing a man-crush on Peter. What a great guy. Funny. All of this is so unbelievable. Bringing Jamar into the story, etc. - there have been great times to be a Dane, but this is far and away the best.
  23. And they want to invite us to keep playing in their house ........... um, no mas. Not on my watch.
