Millions of folks filling out brackets and SUNY listed twice. Great advertising

Suny isn't anywhere in the name...

That is exactly the point. "SUNY" doesn't appear anywhere. It's like we're in a secret cult we're ashamed of.


My brother graduated from West Point. He asked what the deal was with SUNY. "Are they trying to lift their profile?" My response, I don't have a GD clue!

The last 24 hours was amazing. I've lit up Facebook with the news and hopefully can engage some alums who have been slow to UA athletics.


That said I don't think it's wrong to ask, "Ok, Albany leadership how do we leverage this success to move the needle?" We are at an amazing point. You can't expect streaks like this to last forever. If in 5 years we look back and we have the same facilities, conference, etc I think it'll be right to feel they squandered an amazing opportunity.


Similarly it's fair to ask SUNY what the heck is the plan. For years it looks like we have been playing down "SUNY" but then they open your supposed MIT equivalent campus called "SUNY Poly" because UA wasn't good enough. Well if raising the profile of "SUNY" was the goal SUNY Admin F'd up pretty good with this NCAA appearance where literally millions of Americans are filling out brackets and would see "SUNY" twice.


Play the game and win. Enjoy the moment. But also question, hey leadership are we going to leverage this amazing streak? Are we going to move the needle?
