    Syracuse making it is a disgrace

    My guess is they were factoring in the fact that they went 4-5 when Boeheim was suspended and probably deserved a 10 seed based on their play when he was there. Still, you can't just pretend those games didn't happen. And if you do, why not pretend our games when Brimah was hurt didn't happen...

    And here's another thing wrong with the AAC

    I think you answered that for us.

    XL and Uconn Contract

    Other than UMass, which will move on campus eventually once their stadium gets expanded, we play our home football games the furthest from campus of any FBS school. UCLA is second, but they're in a major city where land is expensive and hard to come by. We don't have that excuse. And they play...
  4. Gregory Koch quarterfinals TV!

    As I recall, they weren't on TV last year either, though they were on the AAC's website, so everyone could view them free of charge regardless of their internet provider. Still, pretty much every cable/internet provider will give you access to the ESPN3 exclusive events, though the list of ones...

    No Streaming of Senior Day Ceremonies [but see update pinned at top]

    Most every cable/internet provider will give you the ESPN3 exclusive games. Where it gets limited are for the games that are also on TV on the ESPN family of networks. Those are through WatchESPN, which has different rules.

    L.J. Mazzilli suspended 50 games

    Didn't his dad get in trouble for cocaine when he was in the big leagues? Then again, pretty much the entire Pittsburgh Pirates roster did, even the mascot.

    If Diaco wants fans to stay until the end of the game...

    Here's what you do to keep fans in the stands - run some promotion similar to the Buffalo Wild Wings at the basketball games, but instead of using ticket stubs, hand out coupons at the end of the game to fans as they're leaving the stadium. And it should be something that won't get the fans...

    Syracuse self imposes one year ban for THIS season

    UConn had a vote in the rule change that led to the BET ban being imposed on us, and judging by the fact that it passed unanimously, evidently voted for it themselves. I said back when the Big East passed that rule that it was a good rule but I didn't want to see them going and granting a waiver...

    Syracuse self imposes one year ban for THIS season

    They're banned from the ACC Tournament too. Funny how nobody here is whining about how unfair this is. Yet when we were banned from the Big East Tournament because of our NCAA Tournament ban, that was so horrible. LOL.

    Future AAC schedules released

    So we can play them home and away. If they had done it the other way and switched the 2017 matchups with the 2016 matchups, we would have alternated who we were playing in the crossover matchups, but then it would have been harder to make sure we go to Texas every other year instead of two years...

    Future AAC schedules released

    We actually play Tulane twice more before we play Tulsa - once at home and once on the road. It's an oddity in the schedule. But 2015 starts a new rotation, where we play half of the West division home and home over two years, then the other half home and home over two years. It just so happens...

    Could this playoff scenario play out?

    They are not eligible for the three Contract Bowls (unless they make the Playoff.) However, they are eligible for the three "Host Bowls" - Fiesta, Cotton, and Peach. Those berths will go to the Best Conference Champion from the Group of Five and the five highest ranked teams not already in a...

    men's soccer at Rentschler Field

    Depends. A lot of the fans are students. If the University provided transportation like they do for basketball and football, maybe. If not, we might get better attendance but it will be completely dead.

    Could this playoff scenario play out?

    After the Houston win, BYU is the team most likely to go undefeated. Whether or not they'd go to the playoff is another story, but they are eligible in theory. They could also go to one of the three non-automatic BCS bowls (Fiesta, Peach, Cotton), though they couldn't get the automatic berth for...

    48 Hours from now

    Well, I'll have to miss this one because my cousin's getting married that weekend and there's a rehearsal dinner and welcome reception that night. Maybe if the place has wi-fi I'll catch some of it on my phone. And both my cousin and her groom-to-be went to Syracuse, and half of that side of...

    Yankee Stadium/Army Bus Trip & Tailgate

    You can actually transfer to another Metro-North train now too without having to pay additional fare. It's also probably quicker since it doesn't make a ton of stops. The Hudson Line serves the Yankee Stadium stop as a local stop every day, so if you transfer to a Hudson Line local at Harlem...

    Yankee Stadium/Army Bus Trip & Tailgate

    Do you know if there will be direct service to Yankee Stadium from CT like there is for most Yankees home games? If not, it's no big deal to transfer at Harlem since the Hudson Line serves Yankee Stadium as a local stop every day, but I'm just wondering if you've heard anything.

    This is going to be a down year for us, in relative terms. We lost three seniors to graduation including the Player of the Year in Shabazz Napier, and Niels Giffey who was a reliable Sixth Man/fill-in starter. We lost DeAndre Daniels when he left early. Boatright is back, but he was always iffy...

    I-84 construction

    How far upstate is "upstate"? If you're coming from close to Albany (or points north) you can take I-90 (which becomes the Mass Pike in Massachusetts) to I-91 South like they said. If you're coming from south of Albany but north of 84 (the Poughkeepsie/Kingson/Middletown area) you can pick up US...

    Lyle McCombs no longer part of Football Team

    When you're representing your University on a national scale, whether as an athlete, a coach, or some high-ranking academic person, you should be held to a higher standard than an average person at the University. Average ordinary professors can get away with things that Susan Herbst cannot...

    Still, Maine is playing home-and-home against at least one team, which means that either Notre Dame is playing home-and-home against at least one team or someone else isn't playing home-and-home against anyone. It could be Vermont, I suppose. That's more plausible than Providence or Merrimack...

    Then they can play an OOC game that weekend as well. Whoever has to travel to Notre Dame can play a midwestern school, and Notre Dame can play a non-conference opponent in the northeast.

    2014-15 Schedule

    The home-and-home is considered the conference games. And of course they didn't have an even number when there were an odd number of conference games. With an even number of conference games, I suspect they will do it. In fact, they might even be required to do it, or be off by one if you have...

    Except that UNH does not have uneven home/away conference games. They have 11 of each. Not to mention what you said would imply an equal number of home-away games. Plus, UNH plays Maine home-and-home on the same weekend. The only teams they don't play home and home are ND, Vermont, Providence...

    2014-15 Schedule

    Looking at UNH's schedule (, they have home-and-home same weekend series with seven teams, and then play four for two games at the same site (Merrimack, Providence, Notre Dame, Vermont.) Notably, Maine is home-and-home same weekend. I don't...

    2014-15 Schedule

    Assuming an equal number of home and road games (which is obviously true) you would need to have an equal number of same-site games at home and on the road. And then the rest are home-and-home. That means you would either need zero, two, or four. (You could in theory go to six, eight or ten but...
