I was out of town for Saturday's smackdown of the bearscats. I'm planning on going on Wed. night. Anybody planning on tailgating prior to the game?

 

 

DP, I haven't been able to go to this game the last 2 years because it conflicted with our championship basketball teams conference tournament. And in the last week we actually saw an aint fan write a letter to the sports section of the TU saying the saints deserve more coverage because they are a lock to be an ncaa team this season and an aint fan suggest on this very board that Albany fans are jealous of a Siena lacrosse team that supposedly is ranked higher than UA.

 

Well it is time to see if Siena can play a competitive game this season or if we are looking at same old Siena. Will we see a legitimate siena team or the Siena team that has fewer maac tournament wins than UA has NCAA tournament wins, few maac tournament appearances than UA has ncaa tournament appearances and a team that has always lost by at least 5 goals when playing UA.

 

I'll look for you on Wednesday

You should look again....I'm SURE it's somewhere in there. The delusional Siena fan who was here talking smack about lacrosse just a few days ago swore they were ranked higher. Just goes to show you, never trust a fan of team in the green uniforms.

We will see tomorrow. I fully expect this team to be at 5-5 heading into UMBC and Syracuse.

Siena fan's letter pays off; Siena's stick men on move on the front page of today's T-U sports. You'd think Wilkin would have soft-pedaled the story after they scored only three goals in a four-overtime loss.

 

Siena may have been ahead of Albany in some RPI/Power type ranking, but not any more, and their strength of schedule is now 54 compared to Albany's 12 (out of 57 teams).

And now our power rating is going to decrease even after a possibly large margin against them. I really don't know why we schedule them. And I hope we don't have to play on their field next year if the series continues. :closedeyes:

They are a program trying to grow and get to where we are, thats fine and commendable. The comedy is in 'aints73 trying to talk smack, what a joker!

 

Hope UA putts the WOOD to them tomorrow.

Hey back off Siena had some tough games against the Baltimore School for the Blind and the Hopkins wheelchair team. SOS 54 of 57. What a joke.

 

"Siena's stick man on the move" where the hell are they going? Another shameless whoring of Siena by the Siena rag, instead of covering the local POWER.

I think you mean the national power..which also happens to be a local team.

 

Right you are....I stand corrected. Thats exactly what I was thinking, just didn't phrase it properly.

I wouldn't expect to find a team that is 0-2 in the weakest conference in America in the rankings.
