Massey has us 6-point underdogs (30%) as an away team - technically this is supposed to be a neutral-site game. Sagarin has us 2-point underdogs, add two more if you want to call it $iena home game. Of course this early in the year there's no data for the computers, except for last year.

Is there any buzz at all for the game this year? Ticket sales look awful, especially for our UA sections.

If I remember correctly, in past years a large percentage of the sales have come in the last 2 days before the game.

Just spitballing here, but….

Terrible football season in 2021….

Followed by an underwhelming MBB season in 21-22….

Then a subsequent coaching controversy…..

Followed by a sub par MLAX season….

Followed by another clinker of a football season….

Followed by two struggles against a lower division team…..

 

Despite the best efforts of our Lady Danes, the buzz on the male side hasn’t had anything to build on

for a while. Perhaps it’s taking its toll in terms of fan engagement.

The bright side MSOC is the AE Championship game and Field Hockey battling Michigan in the First Round of the NCAA going to O/T

According to Vic Cegles and I quote: "We have market priced the tickets."  When I questioned him about the quality of the product on the court warranted such pricing.  I was told the quality of the product on the court did not come into play.  I think many UAlbany fans like myself have decided to take a step back from this game, each of us for our own reason(s).

As much as I love and appreciate the success and contributions of the other sports in both the men’s and women’s side, FB, MBB and MLAX are the drivers of most fan’s interest as well as the producers of the largest crowds. The lack of success lately HAS to have an effect. In some respects, I think the team lacks personality as well as personalities. I don’t see fire on the bench, the bench cheerleaders, etc. One additional thing…after pumping it up for years, the schools let the rivalry lapse…now they want to pump it up again. They both dropped the ball. Also, the transfer portal has made it harder for fans to stay engaged. You get a good player and then they’re gone in one or two years. Then you’ve lost a favored player and have to get used to a new one…who may or may not be around next year.  On top of that, most of the games are on streaming platforms I already pay for…why take time to drive to and from the game, pay for tickets and parking, etc when I can stay home and watch for $0 additional? There’s lots of reasons NOT to go and if the product on the court is not appealing….the net result is low attendance.

Anyone know if there are any special events downtown this afternoon? In the past the section of Pearl Street has been closed off for a block party. I think there is an alumni association event at the Hollow, but looking at that site it doesn't appear that very many people signed up for it (the list of who registered is on the site).

They say this game is for the region, not having other events at bars/restaurants or other stuff going on seems like a wasted opportunity to me.
