Part of me doesn't mind because this has become more normal and part of me hates this because I can't believe they couldn't find a D1 game with anyone else.

I don't think it has anything to do with the inability to find another D-1 game. It's a guaranteed win - after what could very likely be an 0-3 start - depending on when the Coppin St. game is.

After Bona absolutely destroys us, we will need a breather against Fredonia. It is going to be a long season in the MAAC.

I totally agree.Nothing has happened since the end of last season that suggests we will be any better. Nothing to get excited about. Just more of the same.

I disagree. Aside from the lost weekend at Monmouth and the Rider tournament game, they were pretty good last year.

Can’t give these coaches anymore passes. We should have never lost to Rider. Once again our staff got out coached!

Thank you,they were 7-6 and had a bad very Covid issue. Not a Reggie fan but this gloom and doom is exhausting. I would like to schedule Daemen or Buff State again. UB plays someone every year who is not D1.

I agree with the poster who observed how many D-1 programs are located nearby. We should never be playing a D-3 team as a regular season game. Why not get a home and home tradition going again with Colgate or Cornel

Albany, Binghamton, Colgate, Cornell, SU, Youngstown, Cleve St, Duquesne, Penn St, Pitt, RMU, WVU, Bucknell, Lafayette, Kent St among others, should all be in consideration for a rotation.
Anything within 300 miles from 2001 Main St.
We keep hearing the college wants to reach out and grow regionally. THIS is how you do it.

The bar is getting very low when there are suggestions to schedule D-3 teams. Maybe we can play some local high schools!!! What has happened to the once proud Canisius Basketball Program?

You would never see Macarchuk. Beilein or Baron schedule a D3 school.

In 1985 (the year the lost to Nebraska in the NIT with Hall and Smrek) the Macarchuk led Griffs lost at D3 Utica 69-61.

Utica was a D1 basketball team back then. Coached by Larry Costello.

I remember the night in the Aud, when Dick Bihr's Buff State D3 hammered one of Nick Macarchuk's better teams, and also how about the night in the KAC when Daemen handed it to Jim Baron's Griffs. I also wish however, that games vs Colgate and Cornell would be scheduled each year. It makes sense financially since both schools are just a couple hrs away. Go Griffs!!!!

The bar for Griff’s basketball continues to go lower. None of our three incoming new players were recruited by other schools. So our “recruiters” were able to sign them. Not to worry. RW will develop them.

sad but true.
Have to remember and hope......... Canisius was the only DI offer for Kevin Downey as well.

Staveskie was offered by UT-Martin and had interest from several others including Cleveland St. and Youngstown St. Long visited Mt. St. Mary's and had an offer from Wagner. Jackson played at UC-Davis, was offered by Montana out of high school and Coastal Carolina after transferring.

Not very impressive ,to say the least. All this group can sign are leftovers and “projects”. The prediction of our finish in the MAAC will likely be right on. When is the last time we out recruited anyone of note for a really good prospect? It is what it is, and won’t change with this coaching staff. Go Griffs

I tend to disagree. I'm sure this team will be competitive in MAAC play. All of the guys that will see most of the action

have plenty experience behind them, and if players like Fritz. Green, Henderson , and Hitchon are healthy and at their best, I think this season could be pretty good. Looking forward to the start of another season, and hoping fans will be allowed to attend the games. Go Griffs!!!
