Via Mark Dixon (ESPN Lacrosse, Inside Lacrosse, Big Ten Networks):   What Happened: Albany 14, Yale 13 OT Takeaway: At this time of year we often talk about Denver and how it seems to ‘go away’ in

Guys, UA has been to the quarterfinals the last 2 years and are currently ranked #7. I'm pretty sure that qualifies as a power program.

That was one of the worst feeds I've seen in a long time.The herky jerky was pretty bad but the camera man needs to understand that lacrosse is not a game where you can fully zoom in on the player wit

According to the ASP we won the Colgate scrimmage on the 6th as well , 15-14. We were up 4-0 within first 4 minutes but let Colgate back into it due to penalties. Justin Reh had a hat trick and Fields had 2 goals. Held colgate scoreless in the 3rd. No other stats mentioned.

Pregame story from TU+

 

University at Albany men's lacrosse alumnus Lyle Thompson has one piece of advice for his former team in its season opener against rival Syracuse: "Effort and attitude is all that matters."
Thompson, currently playing professionally for the Florida Launch with his brother, Miles, scored four goals in last year's 17-12 setback against the Orange.
He'll be back on the sidelines at the Carrier Dome on Sunday — "watching this time, though" — when the Great Danes renew their rivalry with the traditional lacrosse power.
The two teams have met every year since 2004, with Syracuse leading 12-1. UAlbany's lone victory came in 2013, when behind the Thompsons, who are from the Syracuse-area Onondaga Nation Reservation, the Great Danes won 16-15 in double overtime.
Senior defenseman Josh Babcock remembers that game vividly.
"I remember coming in as a freshman opening against Syracuse and then beating them," Babcock said.
Now, three years later, he's hoping to go out the same way he and the senior class came in.
"They are returning a lot of guys on defense, but we're returning a lot of guys too," Babcock said. "We know what it feels like to play 'Cuse, so we're ready to go."
Though Babcock and the rest of the upperclassmen have seen Syracuse each of the past three years, Sunday's game will be unique for the freshmen. They're facing an Atlantic Coast Conference program that's won 10 NCAA championships, most recently in 2009. The No. 7-ranked Orange opened the season last weekend with an 18-5 victory over Siena.
Freshman Chaunce Hill, a recipient of the Tewaaraton Native American Scholarship, said playing in the Carrier Dome against Syracuse has always been a dream of his. "I've been working my whole life for this opportunity," Hill said.
UAlbany graduate assistant Tim Cox offered this advice to the freshmen: "These guys are all the same age as you are, and they are out there playing. Don't ever think of yourself as a freshman or an underclassman. Don't get nervous."
Cox, who played for UAlbany last year, said it's important not to be intimidated by playing in the Carrier Dome. Added Thompson: "That place has a way of making you nervous, no matter how many times you play there."
Hill said he's looking for "a win, a win for my team, a win for my boys, and a win for my family."

UA now 7-8 all-time vs. them after today. A nice little rivalry with them. I would say them, along with UMass, is the best (competitive wise) non-conference rivals (outside Siena...who Danes usually beat).

I watched on AE TV which is a little rough since there's sound but no commentary or replays. The feed was a little herky jerky today as well. The defense needs some work but putting up

that many goals was nice. The new FO specialist showed what he could do against more typical competition. Very promising for a true freshman. Must admit though that part of me keeps watching

for that braid and the circus shots.....gotta get over it I know....

That was one of the worst feeds I've seen in a long time.The herky jerky was pretty bad but the camera man needs to understand that lacrosse is not a game where you can fully zoom in on the player with the ball and then try to follow passes like that. It gets very streaking when there is a few fast passes and a shot. hard to follow with the camera and get there in time for the action. Fun game to watch though!

Thanks for the series numbers. I didn't know we were that close in this rivalry.

I agree with DanesRGood regarding the camera work. Lacrosse is not a sport for closeups. The passes and shots are frequently so fast that a wider perspective is

necessary.

 

I'd email someone about it but I wouldn't know who to email about camera work for Lax games. haha
