I'm pretty sure it use to be 12pm. A few years ago they made the move to 11am. Can anyone confirm?

It's been at 11 for a while. Wasn't our first in 2006 at 11 or 11:30? In any case, I actually like the timing. Wake up early for the first big game of the day, grab food and/or beer for breakfast, sun rises first in the Northeast sort of thing. It's gotten to be a bit of a tradition, yeah?

I don't see what the issue is with the time. I would rather the championship game be played on a late Saturday morning as oppose to prime time during the weekday or later during the Saturday where it would get lost in the shuffle of the bigger conferences semifinal and finals. Its the only game on at the time and allows for fans that may not be in the area the opportunity to attend the game. Even the MAAC game had to go up against the WCC semifinals which overshadowed it in terms of national coverage

Plus, you get to shuffle out of bed on Saturday and snap to it...get your UA on! Otherwise you have to wait all day.
The build up is the best part though LOL.

Interesting that "not listening to the message boards" was mentioned.   David, if you do ever read this, please stop. Don't mind us armchair quarterbacks. Listen to your coaches, your teammates, an

Huh? Against a 28-5 team, riding a 20 game win streak, 16-0 in the conference, 9pt road dogs...and they get to the last minute before losing. That's what qualifies as a bad loss?... I'll take this one

This is the 10 year anniversary of our 2007 win in Burlington in the AE Championship. I forgot how good that 2007 Vermont team was. They went 15-1 in the conference that year, Beat #14 Boston College

For those watching on TV below is who will be calling the game on the deuce.

Oh god, I just realized that anyone can access those tickets. Another classic Albany AD move.

 

Yup, it was mentioned on the America East board by a UVM fan. I would imagine you will get some UVM buying from us. Not sure it matters if UA can't sell all the tickets to UA fans and UVM fans buy them from us instead of waiting for them to go back to UVM's box office if we can fill them all.

Back in 2007 we sold out our allotment. I guess that's what comes with the internet today. There really should have been a code sent out to season ticket holders and email subscribers.

We have never used the full allotment of tickets in Burlington for the Championship game

Are you 100% sure about that. When I went in 07 I'm pretty sure we used it all.

 

And if we didn't we held onto them all until there was no more demand, then gave them back. Right now it's open to anyone.

Safe to assume that we can pick up the tickets at a will call desk/window in Burlington?

My guess is a call to the ticket office will answer your question.

 

 

 

Yes . they can be picked up there.

Also I believe on the bus if you are taking the bus.

I asked about getting mine on Friday after the womens game

I thought it was one year in Vermont that I teased someone in "millionaires" row at home games for being in the last row at Vermont. I think our 600 allocation is a full section top to bottom.

I also went up to Vermont one year when they played BU (real one no longer in the league for those that need clarification) and I got a ticket basically because of how few they used in their allocation

Honestly, don't care. Just win. That's all that matters. Don't care if we are in the PIG. People (cough, Siena fans) parse words: THE PIG is an NCAA sponsored March Madness event. In any strict review, it's a tournament game.

 

 

I always want the best seed we can get in any NCAA tournament we are in but it is better to be in than to be like that crap school in the suburbs who has watched our basketball teams consistently beat theirs and go to 8 (5 women's and 3 men's) tournaments since their last basketball appearance :)

 

BTW on warren Nolan's site, 3 teams already in have lower RPI's than we currently have .

Mount St Mary's

Jacksonville state

South Dakota State

 

3 others that he has as Currently "leading" there conference are also lower than Albany.

North Dakota

New Orleans

North Carolina Central

 

So while RPI isn't the end all , if we win on Saturday, a 15 seed would be my guess.

Historically the Alumni Association had their own set of tickets, this year each person has to buy it from atheltics. I wouldn't assume previous years practices of giving tickets out of the bus are the same. It could be,but we shouldn't assume it.
