Screwed? You've got to beat whatever opponent you get. Everyone can complain about some matchup or bracket. Just win. You wanted games against better opponents, now you've got them. Go Danes. Let's pa

We can beat anyone in the country. Bring on 8-7 unc, and then we'll show Maryland they landed in the wrong side of the bracket.

I dont look at it that way. If they didnt play maryland this season and instead played that garbage school from the surburbs and even if albany beats them by 50 we probably dont get a home game. Obvio

Who else is on the selection committee besides Doris?

 

Can't find much information on it.

Nothing like winning two games, one over #11 and dropping in the polls.

 

Not surprising..unfortunately. If I'm a voter..I want to bump Ohio State up a couple spots for knocking off the #2 team. But..Maryland beat Albany at Albany..so I can't put Maryland below them. Which means Albany..and Notre Dame in the media poll..get knocked down a spot or two..despite both earning Top 20 wins this week.

 

But bumping down Albany two spots..now below Notre Dame..in the coaches poll is a bit odd. Danes win two..against #11 and RV. Notre Dame wins one against #16.

Last year the selection committee seemed to follow the RPI to a fault which is why a lot of people had heartburn over Marquette getting a home game Andy the 6th seed.

 

This year RPI doesn't seem to be carrying as much weight in the polls or by the committee which I don't think is necessarily a bad thing. The RPI Iis flawed in a lot of ways so I would rather see the committee have a bit of a subject component. As long as the AE is a weaker overall conference Albany is going to benefit more times then not from the eye test and subjective measures than blindly following the RPI, but it may hurt the Danes this year.

We had just about 3k vs Loyola in 2007... and that was at JFF without the permanent bleachers.

I can imagine if we get the 1st round game, we'd hit the 5-6k range at the stadium.

 

BTW...Merrick Thomson had five goals and an assist in that game.
