My take is that the Dane Train is back. Too many turnovers; but otherwise, I was very impressed. The defense was awesome, two of the goals in the last couple of minutes (1 with about 3 seconds le

Assuming there is one, some major rule changes approved: The article said due to the unusual timing and loss of 2020 season; the rules ARE official; but an additional comment period "may be" al

Sorry to disagree; but donors and ticket buying fans absolutely have the right and in fact obligation to evaluate the AD. I won't bore you all and list ALL the reasons I feel he has done a terrib

My niece, who is an assistant coach at a DI women's program, has stated most DI programs will start formal practices on 01 February 2021....even without a 2021 schedule announcement

Don't mean to contradict your niece; but

Pretty sure many programs, especially bigs---Duke, Maryland, Hopkins, Others--- have been practicing since first week in January.   Syracuse most definitely had practices in January, before being hit with covid pause.  Most Southern Schools have games scheduled 2/6-7 and those that don't will certainly be playing the second weekend in February. Do you think Duke, Hopkins, Towson etc. would be playing games if they "only" started practice 2/1??????? They have all been practicing ALREADY. And most have had a pretty much full fall ball. Then again the NCAA has never been known to be 'FAIR" across the board.

Perhaps, I do know that Big 10 schools and Syracuse have not officially announced their schedules, perhaps a state by state requirements....saw earlier comment that UAlbany is starting 01 February 2021....

Sadly, no fans in the stands at Casey Stadium .... only chance of in-person looks like Syracuse University and that will need careful thought and risk assessment... oh ... did I forget the need to be vaccinated from COVID - 19 .... no I did not ... my next road trip (March 2021) is to Oneida County for the vaccine (seems like Saratoga County officials have no idea how to identify eligible residents)

insidelacrosse The first game of the college lacrosse season faces off at 11 a.m. as @mercermenslacrosse hosts @bellarminelax. No stream for the game, so injured Bear Cole Leggett will be taking over our Story during the game!
boyletheocean Great game!
dyb_35 HUGE missed opportunity for a couple ADs.

Initial speculation is NO Fans. Perhaps family only. Also looks like playing @ Fallon.

Maybe Cuomo will allow 25% as he did for Bills. If I recall Fallon holds something like 1250-1500? Assuming 50 players and staff; 4 members per [200]. WISHFULL thinking leaves 100-150 spots for die hard fans???????????

I have come to realize there is a better chance that a plan can be put in place to allow fans in the stands at Casey and/or Fallon than the Saratoga County DOH and the Saratoga County BOS coming up with a plan to vaccinate eligible residents for the COVID -19 vaccine....

Has the AmEast really shrunk that low????  Not a single pre-season All-American on any of 3 Levels plus Honorable mention? Historically a league that has sent many teams past the first round of the ncaa's and a few into the QTR's {UA multiple times plus a final four} On at least 3 occasions has sent two teams to the tournament. Is it because of last year's late start in the Northeast {always an issue due to weather) and early finish everywhere due to covid?? Also the AmEast had NO fall ball 2020; when most schools had at least some and many of ncaa's favorites had their fall ball hardly interrupted at all???

THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS?

Speaking of the AmEast; does anyone know what if anything they plan do about NO fans??  i.e ENHANCED espn/espn+ coverage??????? Local streaming the past couple of years was inconsistent at best; perhaps adequate but an upgrade would certainly be IN-ORDER, especially since fans in the stands will be limited at best and maybe nil.

I was surprised not to see Tehoka as an honorable mention.  Great 1st year, poor 2nd, but then last season he started out pretty good.  Maybe this will fuel him to go out and show them.

If anyone cares; continuing my AmEast post, 3 slots back. Top 100 incoming freshman rankings (for what its worth);  UA had two @ #35 & 63 [Hay & Pezzimetti both out of Victor.] Vermont had one @ 93--no other AmEast had any.

Another player to keep on eye on:

 Last February in home game 2 or 3 {not sure which; only I can guarantee you I was near freezing to death} I was sitting next to a young attractive Native American girl. I asked her if she had a brother/friend with the team. She said her boy friend was Keelan Seneca. I said I had not seen him play in the fall or first games. She said he was injured but ASSURED me he was REALLY GOOD. Maybe just young love talking; but his #s in high school indeed very good [Compiled 57 goals and 61 assists as a senior at Salamanca High.] 

Also that school rings a bell, but cannot recall who might have gone there from UA?
