Tim Wilkin taking over UA Sports for the TU


Recommended Posts

Tim's Sunday interview pieces were pretty good; I didn't care for his trashtalk/rivalry horseracing feature. Now it will be absolutely true that he's busy at the track during football preseason. Regardless, the same editorial staff is in place controlling budget, priorities, and linage on the page. All we can hope for is a less negative slant.

They should have hired Brian Fitzgerald, IMO.


It can't get any worse than it is right now though.


Good luck Tim and if you read this just take one piece of advice to heart- UAlbany athletics is actually good for the Capital Region. In fact its likely the hidden gem of the Capital Region. Expose it and you'll make a name for yourself writing about something other than gambling.

Do you think the comments on the blog and the emails sent to the paper about Mark had anything to do with this?



No. I think the fact that Mark was writing about athletic programs with coaches that would not talk to him is why the TU did this.

Well, there had to be somewhere to move Mark S in order to move him instead of sending him to the street. The timing of Pete getting moved off the LCC beat after the reporting of the DWI's does seem odd. However, if Mark S can keep up his negativity he is in the best place to showcase his "style" covering the LCC beat.


I know nothing about Wilkin since I never read about horses and we'll see. Like UAalum72 said no change in the editorial staff. I'll believe the TU is improved when they send reporters to cover the areas best university teams. No excuse not to send a reporter to Yale to cover the number 1 area college in the number 1 college sport.

I can finally say this (and for the record I said this in an e-mail to him where he called me out for "whining" about the lack of UA coverage):


MARK S...it was never nice knowing you...you were nothing more than a wolf in sheep's clothing...and a big fat #$#K to the members of the UA community.


Childish by me: YES. Do I care: NO. My disdain for him is beyond palpable.

From Tim's Twitter:


Spent 90 minutes with UAlbany hoops coach Will Brown this morning. Don't think he dislikes me yet about 6 hours ago via web


So basically on his first day on the assignment he spent more time with coach than Mark S did in his last month? 3 months? 6 months? 1 year on the assignment
