How did Dunk City's sweet 16 run help the A-Sun. Two teams bailed and the conference almost folded this year, that's how much it did. The money earned from tournament wins is so convoluted no one knows where the money is going exactly.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graph...ts/ncaa-money/
Regardless of the questions of where the money goes - our league still gets funds for each appearance in a tournament game. More appearances equals more money. As a Yankee fan, I have no allegiance to the American League East and if an AL East team wins the WS it means nothing to me. College hoops is very different from Pro Sports. As was mentioned - I know the AE players and have enjoyed watching them. It is hard not to root for an underdog too.

Back to the original point though - if Albany wins the AE tournament and wins a game in the tournament, it probably helps UA's recruiting (or hurts it because Brown leaves for more $$) but it would do very very little for recruiting of the rest of the league. I don't see any Albany guys getting the type of coverage that Warney will get in the tournament. SBU dancing and winning a game WILL help the AE recruiting in the manor I mentioned before.

It would pain me to root for SBU if Albany doesn't send them to their rightful home (the NIT) but I would still do it. Not sure whatever money the league gets would be enough for me to root for Vermont though.

Good Lord, there's a lot of Catamount and Red Sox hate out there.

Underneath our exteriors, we are all the same. Embrace the love. ;-)

The downside of being so successful for so long and having so many active fans on this board. I'm sure the recent success UA has had has bred some hatred, but it would be significantly more if there were more active fans posting here instead of BPF.

Take it as a compliment.

Re: Stony Brook Faithful-1 Reason

If Vermont = Red Sox and Albany = Yankees then I guess that makes SBU the cubs?

If so, that bodes well for SBU this year. Back to the original point of the first post:

SBU will finally dance this year (as the Cubs will end their futility) if one of their fans brings a goat to the championship game

That's great news! Our goat will already be on the court wearing #20 .

...almost getting beat by the 8th seed did not exactly pump up my confidence. You can give all of the reasons that the game was close, but SBU has run out of excuses. (Hooley had destiny on his side, Darly got hot) When do we get hot? (Warney was pretty hot) As a competitor, you want to go through the best team. Why was I so estatic when AU lost...almost admitting that it might not happen if they had to go through the Danes.

The game against UMBC was not as close as it appeared, due in large part to your terrible FT shooting. Had SBU shot just 70% from the line, you'd have beaten us by 18 points.

Plenty of Yankee fans in vermont. I put my Yankee sweatshirt on the big screen for a celtic game. My brother had a pierce jersey and ducked out of the way when they put him on. I had like 10000 people booing me as was up there for like 10 seconds.

Rightfully so. Hopefully you weren't sitting in the balcony and all you received were Booos.
