I agree we should punish the offenders and not all athletes (to bring it back on topic).

I'm actually pretty happy to be in my blue state, thankyouverymuch and think that the safety of the many supersedes the rights of a few.    It's called the greater good. Maybe we should talk abou

The 2020-21 men's and women's college basketball seasons can start Nov. 25, the NCAA Division I Council said Wednesday.

The council, following its vote, said no exhibition games or scrimmages can be held before that date, which is the day before Thanksgiving.

Based on my reading of the NCAA announcement, UAlbany could play 18 game conference schedule (10 teams in AE), 7 game non conference schedule followed by the America East Conference Championship Tournament ....does this sound right?  Thoughts....

Google Benson and Doc for a youtube video

 

I Googled this and did not find anything UA related? What exactly am I looking for?  Someone named Doc Benson involved in a massive opioid scheme?

Can we open practices NOW? At least for those programs and athletes following all pandemic guidelines. Of the 40 or so {or is it 80 or 120--The county keeps reporting different figures}; I believe only 4 or 6 or other SMALL number are confirmed covid infected athletes. Even if my numbers are wrong {nearly impossible to get anything accurate --"personal privacy issues".}, the %ages of affected cases at UA well below guidelines. The Big Ten having a fall football season; and the numbers in the Midwest FAR exceed New York.

The problem here is that we are trying to use common sense and logic when it comes to these issues. Common sense and logic have little to do with it when the driving factors are fear, partisan politics and the almighty dollar. Compound that with a healthy dose of CYA, hysteria and misinformation. Basically everyone is making it up as they go along.

My Facebook memories just reminded me that this is the one year anniversary of last year's purple and gold scrimmage. 

 

I have a tradition of taking a pic at the scrimmage of my son with the tallest player on the team that started with Richard Peters when my son was 5. This would be the 7th pic at age 11. Guess we are skipping a year ... 🤬

Below is my comments from a recent thread that I started; just in case you have not seen my comments:

I suspect Will Brown and Colleen Mullen are working hard to come up with a limited non conference schedule that will test their respective teams prior to the conference games.

The questions that I have are:

  • When will the America East announce the conference schedule for men's and women's basketball? (I am hoping prior to Columbus Weekend)
  • When will UAlbany announce the non conference schedule for men's and women's basketball? (I am hoping for early October)
  • When will there be an announcement if fans will be allowed in the stands?

Opinion: Currently, I do not feel safe visiting the UAlbany campus for an athletic events however; I believe the UAlbany administration  is making every effort to control the COVID-19 spread.  I am hoping when 11-25-2020 arrives, the opportunity to attend an athletic event will be there.

Questions - concerns - thoughts... I too wonder about the Purple and Gold Scrimmage ....

I saw your comments. They are all great questions. I myself am not afraid to visit the UA campus, but that's another conversation.

I am hoping for some additional communication from the school soon.

I suggest that everyone follow UAlbany Sports on Instagram ... usually daily postings from many teams from interesting to to a little bit silly... learn more there then from this site at this point...
