Why is Greg Gattuso still head coach of the UAlbany Great Danes?

Well, this is it. Most important game of the year. Win and the dream is still alive, as a 6-3 conference record "could" get an at large playoff bid. Lose and the rest of the season is for experience only.

We all knew that this schedule was going to be a tough one with NDSU and SU on the schedule, but I don't think anyone thought the team would be winless at this point.

Now up to 80-90% chance of rain. Six weeks ago I would have predicted me sitting in the rain to see this game. Now...not a chance. 0-5 and going no where fast. Can’t hold a lead. Can’t execute on special teams. Star QB benched because....why? GG wanted it that way? Only one RB used. If ANYONE from the the athletic department is reading this...I’ve been a fan since the program started in 1970....I’ve been a season ticket holder since Casey opened...you are losing a loyal fan base and based on long experience, the students aren’t interested most of the time. DO SOMETHING!

Spectrum Weather is stating possible downpours starting between 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM on Saturday.... My wife is now out for Saturday....my last comment on firing Greg Gattuso... losing games in it self is not probable cause to fire Greg (in particular with 3 conference losses totaling 14 points)....with one year left on Greg's contract ... we have to pay out the final year ... no easy thing for a cash strapped athletic program .... Mark Benson is sweating this one out .... Mark is praying for 3 or 4 victories to avoid a post season exist of players ... a horrible recruitment season ..... no matter Greg Gattuso contract will be allowed to expire after next season.....like Jimbo, I have followed the Great Danes since 1970....DIII, DII ...University Field for DI.....the way things have pan out in the CAA has been rough...not acceptable

This is OUTRAGEOUS. Shame on Mark Benson and the UAlbany Athletic Administration.

I know I'm a broken record but...

How do the people in charge not realize they are NEGATIVELY impacting attendance by jacking up prices for things like parking? These people need to register for an ECON 101 class at UA, STAT!

People choosing to not go to games because of expensive parking = less ticket revenue = less concession revenue.
People going to games because of free parking = more ticket revenue = more concession revenue.

How do they not get this? This doesn't matter to the single guy or single attendee but it is CRITICAL for families who want to enjoy football as a family.

I guess UAlbany thinks they can recoup all of the lost ticket/concession money with the parking money? I highly doubt it. Highly highly doubt it.

I ask myself how much longer I'm going to support the AD...might have to stop until both Gattuso and Benson are gone.

Not sure how you come up with the theory that parking costs don't matter to single people as it increases the cost of attendance in a percentage basis higher than it does for families. 🤣

I don't think parking should ever be more than the ticket costs although as an example occasionally for the NY Mets it is

The last homecoming they parked us off the end of the podium...and that was with a parking pass for a GDAC contri. I was prepared for another long walk this weekend. But it appears my long walk will be the 20' or so from my recliner to the kitchen for a fresh pale ale.

I'm going to basketball scrimmage but will avoid this debacle like the plague that it is...
