Coaches have the right to make their release conditional after the time and money spent on the athlete. It can be in conference or on schedule or whatever and I think Marr should hold his ground and use it.  Conditional release.  Go get'em kid.

Could care less. Kid has no backbone.  Whatever.  Program existed before and after him 

To me it’s a bitch move

We made it to the final four this year! Do we think we need to tear down the UA program because of one kid's decision?  Hell no! Every program needs to evolve, each year things are tweaked f

I've hashed and rehashed my thoughts on this.

I totally support Coach Marr and the athletic department if they stick to the conditional release, but I say just move on and spend all of your energy on the guys who want to be UA student athletes, the recruiting trail, and in road mapping life after a great senior class and the number one or two FOGO in college lacrosse. There are still way more positives than negatives. I think life after the Thompson's proved that the program is more than any one or two players and the bus can keep on rolling.

The main reason I would grant TD an unconditional release is clearly this isn't about wins and losses. The Danes have been a top 3-5 program since TD stepped on campus and a top 10ish program during the years before he came to Albany.  If you read the reporting from College Crosse, the guy who was out front of this story paints a picture that can't be repaired, and IMO there really isn't any chance of a reconciliation. 

Is the program perfect, no, but one would be hard pressed to find three finer men to be coached by on a pretty big stage. 

I do think TD's dissatisfaction should be used internally by the staff to think about some things. Some are out of their control such as the resources other AE teams are putting into their programs, the broader institutional support for the program in terms of equipment, facilities, and what not.

Ironically, the two teams with the most dominant FOGO's didn't play in the championship game, and DU only won one national championship with Baptiste in his freshmen year, when it was more about the Wes Berg's of the world.

It isn't the end of the world for Albany, and I think the team comes back in a big way next year.

There's no chance I'd grand him an unconditional release...ZERO...NONE! Coaching should think and analyze why they were not able to meet his needs and what if anything they can do better but I'm not letting him walk off this team and unto a team on next years schedule or the year after that. 

He can leave but in the big-boy world decisions have consequences...consider this a life lesson. See ya!

As I said I totally support the position you are advocating, but to me it is about the medicine game, and the larger lesson would be we are going to kick your butt on the field, our team and program is much bigger than any one person.

He's a champ.  Put it this way...he KNEW...KNEW he was playing on a torn ACL for two years.  Still put a max effort now.

I'm not going to comment on TD right now...but let's just say, he should look at Connor.

Hard to disagree with any of this.  I have been with UA since the early 1970's when I played.  I bleed purple.  It is just tougher for some of us to overcome the disloyalty, which is how I look at it.  I would stick with the limited release though.

Ty Xanders Retweeted Matt Kinnear

Confirmed that TD Ierlan has received his full release from @UAlbanyMLAX. As of today, he will not be restricted to communicate and transfer to any programs that are on the Danes' 2019 schedule.

Ty Xanders added,

 

THAT is total BS.  We better be getting a big fish on a transfer!  STILL need to possess the ball though to score and win.  Benson had a hand in this I am sure.  I do not like it at all.

Demerit for Marr letting him leave to a program that's on the schedule next two years if he ends up at Cornell or 'Cuse...bad move! I for one do NOT wish TD well...scab!
