Siena Fans

Recommended Posts

The Siena/UA rivalry redux is great for the Capital region and I hope both teams keep moving forward. I met Brown after the UMBC game last year and came away with a terrific impression of him as a person and as a basketball professional.

It looks like Brown landed a very nice recruit in the 6'11" kid - congrats on that.


Lanier did some really good things at Siena, but unfortunately he was in over his head as a coach and manager. Lanier's firing was badly mishandled by the notoriously inept Siena administration, but he used that as an excuse to encourage his recruits and current players to jump ship and that's inappropriate. I know from an inside source that Siena was uncomfortable with Lanier's transfers, dropouts and grade problems, so they used last year's losing season, together with the other issues to justify his firing. Had Haddix and Mensah been healthy last season, Lanier would've squeaked-out a ~.500 record and would still be the head coach today.


In any case, McCaffery and Mitch make for a very professional tandem and their early recruiting success bodes very well for the future. See you at "The Knick"! By the way, most of the Siena fans are a highly decent and gracious bunch, but the message boards attract some real screwballs. Present company excluded, of course!
