My wife likes to say sports are basically soap operas for men. Have to agree with her on this one.

#SEFCU2018 HOME AND HOME, WE WILL NO LONGER CONTRIBUTE TO LCC'S BUYOUT FUND!

That is too funny but since they don't even spell sienna properly I would expect nothing less :)

Funny Mt St Mary's had an RPI of 225 and a strength of schedule of 333 and over on the Siena Board they're trying to say he scheduled a lot of up games. He also had 2 wins this year against non DI teams and a loss to Bryant 3-28 with a 341 RPI.

 

Should be interesting.

Honestly on first blush if I were a Siena fan I'd be worried. His history is Gallagher 2.0 down to style of play. Extreme reliance on 3 ball don't play defense at least not last two years. Don't rebound don't get to ft line.

He did schedule quite a few guarantee games and I think if you're going to judge his overall record it's fair to consider it. In 2016-17 he opened the schedule with 9 straight road games including Minnesota, West Virginia, Iowa State, Michigan and Arkansas. That's going to play havoc with your overall win-loss record. The schedule the year before was similiar.

Really, after the Patsos bumbling, this seems to be a better hire than they deserve.He's done what you'd want a coach to do at the low-mid major level and that's win and get to the tourney.

We don't need to play the game. In fact, its become so one-sided its not that much fun anymore. 

But please note...he will "do whatever" as long as Siena gets it's way. Man, I hope Benson grows a pair and tells them to beat it.

50-50 deal or it is time to walk ... will be significantly disappointed with our athletic director if we agree to anything less ... LCC needs that game for attendance figures, desperately ... I may, if the lopsided terms continue, have to join others on the board who have boycotted the game ... UA has won 5 of the last 6 (including the last two) ... four year deal, two and two ... anything less, please move on and schedule someone else ... let LCC  and their business partners (TUC, etc.) absorb the hit ($) ... hope that all on the board (if they haven't already) make their feelings known to Mark B.

Agreed, I let my feelings be known...

All I can say is...kick rocks!

 

Wow. 

Do you have to be a $ienahead to be offered that job or does one become a $ienahead after that little exposure to rt 9 clowns. 

Either way, tell them to take a hike. There are plenty of maac teams better than them that would be more than happy to play a top 150 RPI team( or whatever there scheduling guidelines are that I read last year)  in a home and home.

Tell them we will agree to all games at the Tuck when Duke agrees to play all games with UNC at the Dean Dome. After all, it’s a much bigger place and more people could attend the game.

Some of us don't just boycott that game, but also refuse to spend any money at LCC for anything as long as they think it should be anything less than an Albany home and home.

They aren't remotely close to the level of north Carolina  and Duke but perhaps they should have been able to convince Marist , or St peters to play all their games on LCC's court if that logic had any merit :)
