I bet King Benson is very happy now. Completely gutted our entire basketball program in a matter of days. Lost the HC, lost/losing our top players, etc. lol. What a joke. #FIREBENSON

 

Before you light your torches just yet just because they enter the portal doesn’t mean they are gone.

Well over 25% of all college basketball players are now in the transfer portal. I wonder if the NCAA should just starting assuming everyone is transferring and create a "staying portal for those guys

In 2020 - 4 kids transferred out in 2019 - 2 kids transferred out in 2018 - 4 kids left, granted 2 were grad transfers in 2017 - 4 kids transferred out   on and on and on, ros

Why? No one seemed to care when Albany lost a quarter of the roster every single year. So now we're worried? I've been beating the lack of recruiting, lack of development and excessive transfers out o

Sometimes I have taken my association with UAlbany MBB as a family thing... "You do not mess with family" ...... I got to met and have conversations with Jacob and Jon Iati's parents, Will's mom and dad, his wife and Will ... I got feeling of comfort beyond the wins and losses.... Antonio Rizzuto potential departure is no surprise... Benson has "messed with the family" ....if you thought a new coach will turn things around in two or three years .... at most it is hopeful dreamin...

My point is if Benson is expecting a new coach to go .500 or close to it, like Will has been, I don't think his head is in the game. We will be bereft of talent IMO as the new coach scrambles to fill his roster the first year or two.

IMO, we should be ready for a BAD year next year.  Hope I'm wrong, but I'm thinkin 7-8 wins.

Hopefully I'm wrong. Hopefully.

We need to give the new coach a chance.  I look forward to seeing what they can do. Will Brown was a good coach that was here a long time. 

I truly look forward to the new staff to see what they can bring.  I also agree that this hire with forever tie Benson and the new coach together.

Based on some of the post the new coach is screwed before he even comes in haha.

"I'm keeping my options open," Rizzuto said by phone. "This doesn't mean I'm leaving Albany. It's a way for me to see my option in case it comes down to that."

It will obviously depends on the new coach .....

Does not sound like that at all to me. He said albany . Not the capital district.  Maybe st rose.... if we are going with that angle.  St rose is in albany.  Haha.  

He could go anywhere but I think he will go up (Siena is not really up) or return.  Depending on the situation.
