Why does the NCAA insist on naming us Albany, NY, Albany, (NY) or Albany (New York)?????? Who could they be confusing us with????????

 

We are the only Division I school with the name "Albany". I don't buy the argument that we can be confused with Albany St. Univeristy, a Division II school in Georgia. Our Athletics department needs to contact the NCAA and correct this. I believe it hurts us from a marketing perspective.

 

At least ESPN gets it right!!!!!!

Still Albany(N.Y.) - the only college that needs the state added to its name  bang.gif

Maybe it would have been better to remain SUNYAlbany. UCLA, ACSF, UTEP have all survived pretty well with all the initials. At least it's more manageable than the multi-directionals...like SouthWest Missouri (not sure if that is one, it's the best I could come up with!)

Southwest Missouri is now MISSOURI STATE.

 

We should be the UNIVERSITY OF ALBANY...or the UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK.

 

Check the following:

 

University of Buffalo (paid for that name change...I think Golisano worked it out)

 

Stony Brook University

 

Binghamton University

 

Why can't we take the UNY moniker...or...and I prefer....the UNIVERSITY OF ALBANY moniker.

Not that it makes that much of a difference, but UB is still officially the University at Buffalo. Golisano tried to have it changed to the University of New York I believe, but that obviously didn't go through.

 

I think the "Albany (N.Y.)" thing has gotta be a SID thing. I'm sure it takes some time to finally change for new DI schools in terms of their name in the press, but it's been long enough now..on top of our Big Dance success.
