Re: OT: All things Purple Fam

All I asked was what has he won? I never said a single bad thing about the guy.

I do find it funny though for UA fans to be talking about D2 and D3 wins when they have multiple times criticized people talking about NIT appearances.

He's as close to untouchable as that concept gets.

There was ZERO reason to talk smack...ZERO.
May be because he is at Albany??!!!

Does it matter that other coaches worked under him? If he was that good, he would have moved on to coach a higher ranked team.

Obviously, both him and Albany were and are happy with each other and with each other's expectations.

Am I wrong? D2 or D3 national championships don't even compare to a NIT appearance. I just wouldn't brag about regular season D2 or D3 wins after criticizing someone for bragging about a NIT appearance.

I guess my thought process is off though.

Bob Ford may be legendary. IDK that's why I asked. I don't pay attention to college football let alone sub D1 college football.

He has turned down multiple offers over the years... I'm sure those that have played for him and post here will fill you in. It's precisely why he is so revered... He could have gone on to bigger and better things but stuck with ua.

Point is he has won at every level... All the way up to nec and will continue in the caa after an adjustment period... Your ignorance doesn't give you an excuse to poo poo the man's lifetime achievement. If you don't follow college football... Why you talking shit about it?

Boso name 1 thing I said bad about him. You can't. I didn't talk shit about him. I talked shit about UA fans hyping up his d2 and d3 regular season wins. I never poo pooed anything about his lifetime achievement.

You saying he has won at every level is a little misleading because he has not coached at every level. He may have won conference championships at every level he has coached at. That statement is a little more accurate.

uvm4life20 you are a total joke I would use stronger language but I not ready to be banned yet.

Bob Ford is LEGENDARYto those heavily involved in football at all levels (from HS right up to the NFL) and if you want someone to prove you're an ___hole.

When did I say he wasn't legendary or anything bad about the guy. UA fans have some great reading comprehension.

It's evident you know nothing about alot of stuff, even stuff you think you know alot about. If you don't know anything stay out of the conversation instead of coming into an OT thread and trying to cause a commotion.

LMAOOOO. Untouchable?

Man, Ya talk about SBU fans... but ya Albany fans are full of it. Untouchable? Legend? What else... I'm just saying: I haven't heard anyone ever mention Bob Ford as being one of the legends of college football. But if it makes you happy.. Good for you

Re: OT: All things Purple Fam

Patch I didnt try to come in and start a commotion. I asked what he won because I was curious since people used the word legend with him. I was called moronic for asking the question. I took a jab at UA fans for it. 3 different UA fans lacking reading comprehension attacked me for supposedly attacking him. They were all wrong. It's the UA fans that came on here trying to start stuff with me.

I know this is all too much for you to comprehend. It's ok.

Or could've he moved on to bigger things? revered? by who... Where is this coming from... Boy

Its just crazy that I never heard of this guy and all of a sudden he is legendary. I'm a huge College football fan, watch games all the time. Watch mainstream media. This guy has not been mentioned at all or taken seriously other than to mention win totals by current CFB coaches. Or maybe I just need to watch even more College Football.

WTF is wrong with Albany fans?




P.S: Priore is more legendary that Ford! He has taken us to two Division I Playoffs... Something still to be accomplished by Mr.Ford... but if you wanna make someone legendary for sticking with a program and winning a lot of DIII and DII games, Go ahead!

Pikiell is also Legendary! Just saying

Wow... Now priore is fords equal...?? Put that on ags board and see what reaction you get.

Your stupidity, yes intense stupidity and ignorance is no excuse for the bs you spout in this thread... Where did priore get his start?

News flash dope... In d1 out of 14 years he won or tied for first 6 times... It's not his fault that the nec had no bid to the playoffs... When they did he went to the tourney with half the scholarships priore had and took him to the wire. Well see how things go with him having comparable resources.

Think about it, with half the resources, no facilities, half the scholarships he had 11 out of 14 winning season. If the NEC had access to the playoff he would have been in the playoffs at least 4 times.

Man I can't wait for this year...now that we are in the same conference and we have a new stadium and full scholarships to show recruits...lets get it on.

As far as Pikiell goes...Brown 2 - Pikeille 0 ...put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Wow...I'm with Albany guys on this one. You guys are way off base. Ecasado, for you to say in your last post that Ford has not been taken seriously is absurd. Do you talk to college coaches? Former players and coaches? He is definitely one of the most respected coaches in the country, regardless of level.

Really not sure why you guys are coming into an Albany thread and jumping all over their fans.
