This playoff system SUCKS. I can't go to any game. Totally ridiculous schedule for out of town fans. I'm disgusted and angry after all the money I've spent over the years at the tourney between tickets and hotels and gear and beers and food. A total slap in the face to the fans.

You can thank sbu for this format. That bunch of losers blew it every way possible... Maybe this will help.

 

 

I'm seriously furious. Absolutely ruined a yearly ritual for me and my friends (also Albany alums) to go to the tourney, watch some basketball and party with each other for a a night or two again. I'm going on a twitter rant to the America East twitter account right now....

Believe they sent emails regarding post season to season ticket holders..right? Heard they mentioned a 2/27 date maybe. Someone who gets the email can confirm...I just chatted with someone at the last game who mentioned that date. Edited by MsGDG

Same sentiment here. We have been to every AE Tournament that the UA men have played in. This system stinks.

I suggest you complaining also because it really is a slap in the face to the fans who have supported so long. I really hope UVM and SBU lose at home in the first round. I also hope that somehow this blows up in the America East's face and they go back to the tourney very soon. Does any other conference do this stupidity?

Yes, our regular seats are up for purchase by us (we aren't getting moved it we buy them). I believe they are $20/game. Myself and my brother both got ours. Parking passes are also $10/car.

Well - I do love this time of year. We don't know if UA will be in the tournament yet - but every website and it's brother has a prediction thread of how the seeds will shake out. I pulled up a few of the sites that many people reference, trust, or happened to be at the top of a google search :)

Teamrankings: http://www.teamrankings.com/ncaa-tournament/bracketology/detail/

2/27 Update: Albany as a 14 seed. No location or opponent, but based on order of seeds (last #14 would play first #3 - Iowa State)

 

Yahoo/Brad Evans: http://sports.yahoo.com/featured/ncaab/bigboard/

2/27 Update: Albany as a #16 seed playing in the play-in game as overall #65 against Bucknell. Since we already played Bucknell and they keep rematches out of the first 3 rounds if possible - we would play St Francis (NY) or Georgia Southern

If we get to the dance and get the PIG, I'll be PISSED. That will be such a slap to the face of what these kids accomplished with integrating like 9 new guys, Peter's family, etc.

Not a consideration, this isn't a popularity contest...

 

That Niagara loss is killing us..

 

If we run through the AE tourney, we'll have an RPI somewhere in the 110 range. That coupled with the fact that we would be in it for the third time in a row which always gets some love from the panel means probably a 15 seed.

 

I don't see a way to get 14 unless there are some massive upsets in other conference tourneys that they can then take those teams and slot under us.

The blowout loss to Holy Cross hurts almost as much. They were so good against us, but fell apart as a team. The loss at St. Francis (PA) was pretty bad too - but you are right - Niagara kills us.

 

From ESPN Ratings - our worst games:

Worst Games for BPI

 

Tue, Dec 30 Niagara L 65-47 9.3 -------------1.7

Wed, Dec 3 Holy Cross L 74-57 7.9 ----------3.2

Sat, Dec 6 St Francis (PA) L 69-59 24.6 ---12.5

Sat, Nov 29 UNLV L 75-59 17.1 ---------------23

Mon, Dec 8 Bucknell L 61-58 43.2----------- 36.5

 

On the flip side - Best Games:

Best Games for BPI

Mon, Jan 19 Stony Brook W 64-47 93------- 95.6

Sat, Dec 20 Yale W 64-60 66.6 ---------------87.3

Wed, Nov 19 N.J.I.T. W 65-48 83.9----------- 85.8

Wed, Jan 28 Vermont W 47-44 62.8--------- 75.5

Fri, Feb 13 N.J.I.T. W 65-59 72.8------------- 75.4

 

Also of note:

The close loss at Providence had a score of 71.2

The Feb 4th Win at home vs. New Hampshire only got 48.9

 

 

Very interesting rating structure they use...
