Re: Retiring the number of an all time great

you are correct you cannot compare Tommy and Jamar. Tommy was all about defensive while Jamar was all about offense. Both had the ability to change the game that they were playing. I will say again Jamar was better.

I don't know about this. Brenton is a fine offensive player who passes and facilitates. Wilson stole the ball regularly. The thing about Wilson was that his explosiveness with the ball was consistently highlight reel quality and that gets votes.

Ther other thing is Wilson had some help (that Iowa kid was real nice), but nowhere near as much as Brenton has had from Joyner, Warney, Cooley and that guard who was going bald.

Well after tonight I think you can put away the retire Tommy's number petition until the end of the season and then you can reevaluate the situation. Great players come up in big situations. That's why SBU has never won the Big One (YET) with Tommy.

Re: Retiring the number of an all time great

wether they do or not is up to SBU - he didn't get it done tonight. When I think of GREATs getting #'s retired I dont see #24 there but that may speak to SBU only being around for a short time so they are working on a short list. He was a non factor tonight

Jamar Wilson was the FAR superior player -- no offense to Brenton but Wilson is one of the top 5 players to come through the AE post caa-4 (2001).

But for accuracy sake, Albany's supporting cast was WAY better than stony brooks: lucious Jordan, Brian lillis, Levi Levine, Jason Siggers, Jon iati, Brent Wilson and Kirsten zoellner

Re: Retiring the number of an all time great

While i dont think tommy played well tonight, i dont think we can base a career on one game.

Also for the record i don t think he should be retired at this point.

Yeah, Brian Lillis. He was one of the most under-appreciated players in AE history. He could play on my team forever.
