Just saw that the 61st renewal of the Ithaca vs Cortland football game will be played next month at MetLife Stadium. As of a few weeks ago they had sold 39,000 seats, which is already a record for D3 football. As former UA opponents in our D3 era, I think it’s pretty cool they get to do this. Both teams are 6-0 at the moment.

Yes it is huge.  I do not recall Cortland ever being on the Schedule.  Ithaca yes.

Memories, where would we be without them.  Does anyone remember when UAlbany played Ithaca at Blecker Stadium in 1975?

Actually when I arrived at UA in 1979, they were still talking about the Ithaca game which was in 1978.  Ithaca was undefeated, the game played at Bleeker Stadium, and ABC broadcast the game.  Dario Arango from the soccer team booted a 45 yd FG at the gun to win 9-6.

I remember it well, although I watched it on TV, not at Bleecker. My only UA Bleecker experience was the $iena beatdown.

We played Cortland eighteen times, all but one year between 1976 and 1994. We were 8-10

 Much of that was during the time I was living out of the area so I do not remember those games.

Yep I played in that game, Starting Corner, usually left side.  73-6 if I remember correctly.

I don’t want to start another thread, but thought I would mention another name from the past with Albany ties. Al Bagnoli, who coached here and got his masters at UA....currently the winningest coach at any level....currently turning Ivy League doormat Columbia into a respectable program.  I was also wondering, is there a Bob Ford coaching tree out there some place?

I remember some final along those lines....something like 51-0 at the half.

LOL, well I had been thinking for many years that the game was played in my senior year.  The game was an ABC broadcast only shown by the Albany and Syracuse TV stations.
