I wonder why our Athletic Administration doesn't see the obvious. We are moving in an upward direction in the AE. Let's get Coach Brown's contract situation straightened out.


As good as our current recruiting class may be it could have been even better if our coach had a contract and security.


America East 2004-05 Season Recap


by Phil Kasiecki


The America East Conference had one of its better seasons in 2004-05, though the conference looked a little top-heavy in the final standings. Two games separated first from third place, then five games separated third from fourth. The end result was three teams making postseason play, the first time that has happened in the conference's history. Overall, the conference was 15th in the RPI ratings, one of its highest ever.


Vermont held off a late charge by Northeastern to take the regular season title. The Catamounts won their first 14 conference games before finally losing, while the Huskies closed out the regular season as the conference's only team with a winning streak as won their final six. Boston University, which finished third, had an eight-game winning streak at one point and posted non-conference wins over teams like Michigan and Fordham.


After the Terriers came an emerging school, as Albany jumped to fourth place in the standings. After two years with depth concerns and injuries, the Great Danes had key transfers join the team and also got Jamar Wilson back from an injury that prematurely ended his 2003-04 season. They were in the top half of the conference for most of the season, and survived another major injury, this one to guard Jon Iati, last season's rookie of the year.

Although injuries certainly had their impact, it was not as large as in some other recent seasons. Maine was hobbled by a number of injuries at different parts of the season, while Stony Brook lost sophomore guard Mitchell Beauford for the season in December and Albany lost sophomore guard Jon Iati for the season in January. At various points in the seasons, other teams lost man-games to injuries as well.

I couldn't agree more. This is very troubling to me. Regardless of the comments by the AD, this is a problem for recruiting and hiring assistants. Of course every other AD in the country could be wrong. At this point, we've done well, but might have done better. Supposedly the extension was getting done right after a recruiting trip around the time the year end banquet was being held. That was weeks ago and still no announcement. And, welcome back Patch, I was getting worried about you.
